Chloe Ethel Tote bags

chloeetheltote.jpg Chloe is slowly but surely making its way back into our hearts. It was my friend Connie's birthday yesterday and we chipped in to buy her the Chloe Paraty in chocolate python. We have a "birthday" group of girlfriends-- there are 4 of us and we have been celebrating each other's birthdays together for 5 years. There is always champagne involved of course (and a LOT of dessert), sometimes the lunches end at dinner time! The birthday girl gets to pick out whatever gift she wants! We decided a long time ago that we're too old for surprises (unless it's from our hubbies and involve any kind of diamonds and of course anything made by our kids!) so it works out for everyone!

If you're looking for a gift for a girlfriend or for mom, here is another Chloe worthy of consideration. The oversized Ethel tote (15x15) in delectable berry is cheeky bright with a flash of brilliantly contrasting orange leather-- an edgy detail that makes the simple tote more interesting. Thankfully Chloe is over the heavy hardware of the Paddington days, the subtle gold tonal hardware is very understated and the lambskin with goatskin trim make the tote super lightweight to boot. Really a fab summer tote to travel with and play with-- I'd never thought I'd love a purple bag trimmed with bright orange but hey, never say never, right?
