Chloe Handbags: Gorgeous!
Chloe makes, quite possibly, the most luxuriously feminine handbags in the fashion world. The company was formed in Paris in the mid 1950s by Egyptian designer Gaby Aghion. The woman singlehandedly revolutionized the fashion industry, by offering pret a porter clothing - Chloe was the first company to do this.
The company was bought out in the 1980s, but they are still producing my favorite handbags. The colors, the materials, the designs, the everything - smooth like butter, and then some. I'll take all of them, thank you!
Chloe Bay Patent Hobo
Alright, I don't usually get girlie over fashion, but omigod, omigod, omigod I want this bag, in this color, in this style, in my hand asap! I love everything about this handbag.
Double shoulder strap (and such lovely shoulder straps they are!), magnetic closure, perfect for all occasions. Fantastic with jeans, obviously, but the material gives a sophisticated edge, and you could pull it off with something sleek if your accessories were understated. Have I mentioned I love this bag?
Chloe Ascot Tote
I love the two-tone coloring of this bag. The Chloe Ascot Tote has an elegant, creamy exterior which looks very first class - combined with those hip and trendy accents that give it a youngish, mod appeal. This isn't your mother's handbag, but she might be tempted to borrow it every now and then.

Chloe Jaded Bracelet Bag
Hello? How cute is this bag? I'm thinking very. As the name suggests, the Chloe Jaded Bracelet Bag slips over the wrist and will make you look fashionably trendy, elegant, sexy, and a number of other adjectives you would love to be referred to as.
It comes in other colors, but the Jaded style is really the prettiest, in my opinion. And the beads are beautiful!
Chloe Paddington Satchel
This is a very popular line at the moment, and while I do think they look lovely, I am undecided about the great big padlock sitting on the front flap. Of all the models, this is my fave. There is actually a Victoria Beckham version; tiny, compressed, painfully thin. Not really hard to figure out the inspiration. That said, I do like this one, and I do love the understated coloring.
Chloe Pebble Kerala Tote
I've included this for those of you who really love the great big mama bags. I'm not usually keen on them, but this one will certainly do. The leather quality is excellent (definitely has that buttery thing going on!) and the dark color makes it great for anything from high powered lawyer purse, to cheeky bomenienne.
