Chloe Oversized Leather Tote
Recently I wrote about the clutch trend and how clutches aren’t just for evening anymore. So what if it isn’t really a clutch, but a petite shoulder bag? Would you wear it as an everyday bag or an evening-only bag? Introducing the Chloé Small Yak Shoulder Bag. This interesting-looking little shoulder bag is composed of black leather with contrasting python trim. It comes complete with a triple-chain, gold strap — which I think is absolutely gorgeous AND unique. The hardware looks really sharp as well. And this is unusual of me to say because I normally don’t like gold with black. But, for some reason, it really seems to work for this handbag. When I look at this bag, it just doesn’t scream “evening-only bag”. In fact, I think it would go nicely with office attire (as shown in the picture). Carry this bag and your briefcase with you to work. Heading out to lunch? Grab this little guy and leave your briefcase behind. It’s definitely not for everyone, but I think it would be fun for an adventurous-type wanting to mix things up a bit.
The Chloé Small Yak Shoulder Bag measures 9″ x 7″ x 1″ and has a 23″ strap drop. It retails for $3,720 (an insane, yet typical Chloé price tag). Love this work-ready outfit? The skirt, shoes, and blouse are all from Chloé and the blazer is from Miu Miu. Find it all over at net-a-porter, where they are currently offering free shipping!
