Chloe Paraty Better with the Euro

We are big fans of Bag Snob or anything snobby for that matter. While checking out what's new and hot we came across a post about the Chloe Paraty bag going 30% off. Normally a 30% off bag sale would not be worth mentioning except that the Paraty bag doesn't seem to go on sale.

Whenever Chloe has their in store sale the Paraty is excluded. They don't go on sale at Saks or Bergdorfs either. So 30%--if you like the bag-- is a reasonable deal.



However, the Bag Snobs missed a major point. LuisAviaRoma.com, which is hosting the sale, is a European company and all prices are quoted in euros. The green Paraty started off at €1125 and is €788 with the 30%. Convert that to dollars and the final cost is $1060. That's 45% off the original price of $1900-ish.

So hurray to Bag Snob for sniffing out a great deal but never forget about working in the currency exchange-- for better or worse!

Now, what's your opinion of the Sally?

The Sally is nice but not practical by any means, I don't think my small wallet would even fit in there. It would be great for an evening out or maybe vacation when you can leave some stuff at home but is now really the time to be spending $2,000 on a bag to use on occasion? My verdict, dust off something you already have and save your cash for a bag you can use daily. As for the Paraty, if Chloe wants to revisit the handles then we can talk. For now I can't deal with having handles and a shoulder strap, not to mention handles that don't look like they would even fit over my arm.
