New in: The Chloe Elle


The Chloe Elle via Monnier Freres

You might remember from my post about Investment Bags a few weeks ago that after securing my new job here in New York, I had decided that I was going to treat myself. You mightn’t believe me when I say this, but I genuinely don’t do a crazy amount of shopping so A LOT of thought went into this one. I totally understand that designer pieces aren’t for everyone, but, for me, this is so much more than just a designer bag. The last 6 months in New York have been full of hard work & excitement and so I wanted to invest into something which will always remind me of this particular time in my life. I also just found out on Friday that I’ve secured a visa to allow me to stay in New York for another three years (more about that Here) so this purchase couldn’t have arrived at a better time.



As mentioned, after a lot of thought…I decided to go with the Chloe Elle. I had been in-between minds about this one and the Chloe Drew, but in the end, I just couldn’t resist the classic & timeless look of the Elle. It’s my first Chloe piece & I am absolutely IN LOVE! Black and gold is my favorite combination in relation to everything I wear so I just know I am never going to take this off. It’s the perfect size and just look at that beautiful gold chain!

I’d love to know what you guys think? A lot of you were asking me on my snapchat (retroflame1) about the site I bought it from. It’s a site called Monnier Freres and I couldn’t recommend it enough. So easy to navigate through, really cute packaging and super speedy delivery.

Unfortunatley, I’m spending today at home trying to get over a bug that I caught this weekend. Hoping it’s just a 24 hour thing which will be gone in time for Miami this weekend. So excited for this trip!

Hope you’re all having a great week,

Stylishly Yours,
