Originally launched as a denim line in 2001, the See by ChloÃ© brand was a response to the success of denim and jersey pieces in the ChloÃ© collection. While there aren’t many See by Chloe handbags that make me take a second look, the Cherry Small Metallic Cross Body Sling did just that! Softly shaped with a little bit of edge, I’m loving this one!
This cute little cross body is the darling sibling to the Cherry Large version. This little bag packs alot of “WOW” for it’s small size. Gorgeous pebbled leather featuring gold metallic accents. I really love how they “pop” against the black. Two zippered pockets on the front provide an interesting design element without being overwhelming. A short tasseled drawstring at the top of the bag also provides another design element that provides stylish detail without being too long and overpowering the scale of the bag. I love the pleating on the sides of the bag is it gives the bag a soft rounded shape rather than a hard line geometric shape. It’s almost like carrying a little pillow! small front flap has a magnetic closure so it doesn’t stay open.
The black color is my favorite choice for this bag as it’s versatile enough for all seasons as well as day or night! The black version also features my favorite color as an added bonus! There is a stunning royal blue fabric interior! Surprisingly roomy, this bag measures 9″H x 12″L x 2.5″D. There’s plenty of room for everything you need and it’s hands-free! The 26″ strap drop is ample length for a comfortable cross body style. I’m on the shorter side, so I think I’d like this length best for mid-height to taller girls. Never let your bag hit on the widest part of your body. Simply not flattering.
While I still haven’t made an investment yet in a cross body style, this one is making it challenging to choose between my faves! A great buy for $470 here at Shopbop.com
