Chloé Victoria Shoulder Bag


Sometimes the color of a bag can make or break the design for me. That's exactly what happened with the Chloé Victoria Shoulder Bag. When I first saw it, I was instantly attracted to the bag's fabulous calfskin leather exterior and practical shape. The only aspect of the 'Victoria' that turned me off was the color. I'd seen it advertised in either basic black or cognac brown which are both decent options, but nothing special to write about. Then I saw this heavenly slate blue version, and said "Aha!, this is the color this bag was meant to have". There's no doubt the 'Victoria's' large dimensions, subtle pleating and threaded, buckle-accented top handles are its major selling points, and, yet, I can't stop drooling over the color. While I always advise friends to use their brains and not their hearts when making a substantial handbag purchase, sometimes it's worth it to listen to the pitter-patter of one's heart as it falls helplessly in love with a bag. Come to think of it, that's how I ended up married to my darling husband. I guess the heart can steer you down the path to happiness every once in awhile;-)
