Can you believe I’ve been drooling over the Chloé Mini Marcie bag since last summer? Every time I wanted to go and grab it somewhere, be it online or in stores, it was sold out in this gorgeous color called: “Tan”. Sure, I would spot the Marcie in gray, peach pink or light brown, but for some reason I only wanted this bag in this particular tan color, or it would be no mini Marcie for me at all. Can you believe the utter joy when I walked into the Bijenkorf – A major department store in Amsterdam, and finally found this baby in yes the color tan!
It is quite funny, because the store only had the Marcie bags laid out in the color blue, beige and light pink, so I was about to walk away terribly disappointed again. It was at this moment that the Chloe sales lady Sarah walked over and said:”I can tell, you are not really into the colors we have laid out here. You are a brown bag type of girl am I right?. If you are interested, we also have the color tan for you in the back of the store”. I said WHUT? Your kidding right?
Sarah rushes off and a few minutes later comes back with the bag I have been crazy to get my hands on: Thé Tan colored Chloé mini Marcie. There was a moment of silence. Angels were singing, bells were tingling. This is that shopping moment every girl dreams of. There is the bag you want! My boy Emiel said: get it, girl now! My mom said: go and grab it fast! Guess what? I didn’t get it. They got it for me. Don’t you just love these people? I do… oh yes I do!
I had my nails done in the Pantone colors of the year 2016 – Rose quartz and serenity. Perfect for Spring coming up next month right? You can find an even more clear picture of them on my Instagram.
This Chloé cross body saddle flap bag made of grained calf leather is the perfect go-to bag. It is not big, but there is enough space for a small purse, iPhone, keys and a few lipsticks. It is so cute with all your spring and summer wear. I can’t wait to pair it with lace dresses, denim skirts and easy breezy shorts. The color of this bag will look gorgeous paired with multiple pastel colors too. It’s cutesy small size really has that nonchalant, “casual- chic” boho look I am so fond of.
