Isn't it pretty? It's like a puzzle waiting to be played with.
Then I looked at the rest of the bag and I liked it too! After some more ummming and ahhhhing it was added to the "shopping cart". And this Elsie shoulder bag is mine :-D

The calf leather is a dream. It is unbelievably soft. And I just adore the turnlock, so beautiful, with an art deco vibe (which I love). Regular CCM readers know that I'm in a structured bag phase so this is right up my alley.
Even the lining of the bag is leather. How luxurious is that?
I had some reservations over the gold chain. I'm not much of a bling girl (diamond is excepted of course :-P) but this chain is not OTT, and I like that it is adjustable - double up to carry the bag on the arm or extend the chain to use as a shoulder bag.
I wonder if I'll look as chic as Sienna Miller?
So here are my Chloé double act side-by-side.
Pretty nice, n'est-ce pas?
My sister and I received lovely customer service from the sales assistant at Chloé, which made the purchasing decision that much easier to make :-)
Now, a poll on the next Hong Kong trip post. Would you like me to blog about:
(c) clothes, or
(d) more bags?
