Chloé Pearl Messenger Bag

Let me start out this post with a bit of handbag history trivia regarding yours truly. I've used messenger bags my entire life. My first messenger bag came in the form of a sweet patchwork bag which sported an image of Holly Hobbie. I quickly moved on to a hand-me-down suede fringed messenger courtesy of my mom. My teen years brought quite a few messenger bags my way as even my school bag was messenger-style. Then I hit my twenties and for some unexplainable reason messenger bags were scarce. There were, of course, messenger bags out there. They were just not my cup of tea. The market was saturated with "grunge"-style bags. By this time, my love of designer handbags was in full swing and nothing less would do. Now I can finally say I've found the bag of my dreams in the Chloé Pearl Messenger Bag.

This hip design is done in the perfect shade of brown with a sheepskin leather body, patent leather trim and brass hardware. Chloé's trademark woven shoulder strap features rivet detailing and the convenient magnetic snap closure opens up to a canvas-lined interior with a small zip pocket for added storage. The best thing about the 'Pearl' is its' spacious dimensions - 17 x 15.5. This one is a true flat messenger bag. Finally my love affair with the messenger bag can continue.

Available for $1275 via Net-A-Porter
