Chloé Paraty

Get ready to jump on the designer handbag bandwagon in 2009 courtesy of the Chloé Paraty. This tote, a celeb favorite and bona fide hit, is back in '09 and available in several colors and sizes. After comparing the large and medium Paraty totes to each other, I prefer the medium-sized version best. Both feature the Paraty's trademark dual shoulder straps with gold-tone metal accents as well as the curved piping design on the front and rear exteriors, but the dimensions of the large version allow the Paraty to loose its' unique shape and, therefore, its' appeal. I'd recommend sticking to the medium version's 12 x 9.5 x 8 dimensions which are ample enough to qualify it as a true tote. If you really need a larger bag, then hopefully the 21 x 14.5 x 8 measurements of the large Paraty tote will suffice.

    I have a hard time with this bag. It just doesn't appeal to me at all. I think it is because it looks like it will just frumple up on the floor once sat down.
