ChloÃ© accessories are tugging at my heartstrings. I think this is almost perfection in a bag form. I love the contrast of the linen, leather and black piping.Â A little longer strap would make this perfect because then you could also carry it cross-body. images: net-a-porter.com
ChloÃ© has gotten my attention this week. I love the two Suede and Leather Ankle Boots styles. Â Perfect for skinny denim. images: net-a-porter.com
Flat leather over-the-knee bootsÂ by ChloÃ© Over-the-knee boots were over in my books until I saw these ChloÃ© ones. Â ChloÃ© is sold at Holt Renfrew Bloor Street in Canada. images: net-a-porter.com
The Darla Leather Tote by ChloÃ© is a good looking bag. It comes in the large version in brown and the smaller in red. They are very schoolboy satchel looking. Â All the bag needs is a shoulder strap for crossbody options. images: net-a-porter.com

I just got my beloved ChloÃ© booties from the Spring Summer 2008 collection fixed at Kaner. They have been out of my shoe rotation for at least a year because I’m that lazy. It inspired me to share my shoes on the blog. I really loved ChloÃ© with Paulo Melim Andersson at the helm. I wish I was able to get a few more pieces by him before he was kicked out of the house. These were a Holt Renfrew Now or Never buy.
I talked about the shoes at Chloe in March and now they are available. ChloÃ© Suede panel shoe boots ChloÃ© Raised leaf boots
ChloÃ© Ready to Wear – Fall Winter 2008 – 2009s I really like the new Chloe. To me it was time to change up the label. After that horrible collection created by the Chloe team after Phoebe left, it’s good to see something not like the typical Chloe girl. images: style.it
I’m loving the shoes from ChloÃ© this season. ChloÃ© Piped leather sandals These are pretty and I love the colour. ChloÃ© Perspex panel platform sandals ChloÃ© Patent leather sandals These are so weird they are awesome. ChloÃ© Patent leather sandals I like the new ChloÃ©, it was time to switch up the brand. EDIT: Holt Renfew is carrying the silver version of the Piped leather sandals. They are stunning in person, it’s a shame that they aren’t in teal. images: net-a-porter.com
ChloÃ© – Silk Canvas Shirred Skirt
I blogged about theSecret Garden a-line dress by Chloe from the Fall 2007 ready to wear collection in November. It’s fantastic in pictures and absolutely stunning in person. I tried on the Chloe dress for kicks and I just had to take unauthorized photos. It was so beautiful. A heavy duty open end two-way zipper ran the length of the back of the dress. It’s definitely a winter dress, the wool made it a lot heavier than I expected. I’m in love, I can’t believe it was on the sale rack. It was still too pricey for me, so I only got a brief taste of its exquisiteness. This is the runway look and a closer look at the detail. images: me and elle.com
Chunky heels from Nine West I picked up a pair of navy heels the other day. It wasn’t an easy search as shoes are mostly brown, burgundy, tan or black these days. There are a lot of cobalt shoes hanging around but not too much in navy. I found these shoes at Nine West. The picture show is grey but the ones I have are navy. I like the fake reptile print in them also. They are basically knockoffs from the Chloe Spring 2007 season. They removed a strap, changed the colour and ditched gold for silver. I like that the chunky heel is back this season, they are so much nicer to walk in, even at 3.5 inches. I also tried on these Prada Fall 2007 knockoffs but they didn’t look that great on me. The original Prada’s for comparison, they changed the colour, but it’s basically the same shoe. click the thumbnails for larger images
Chloe printed a-line dress I love the forest print that covers this dress.

Pursed Lips’ Carnivale of Couture: Dream Bags This is a fun Carnivale of Couture about handbags. Designer Ella asks 2 questions. 1. If you were to only have the allowance for one Big Name designer IT Bag, what would it be? (This is a dream to many with the allowance for none!) Choosing one bag is so hard. I really love the Fendi Spy bag. ($2,100.00) But I really like the Chloe Paddington too. This one in lizard is very interesting. ($7,200.00)
