Edith also arrived AT LAST, but there is a black mark on the handle. Not sure if I am keeping her, or if the mark will get the best of me.

Okay...trying the blanc pocket Paddington (a.k.a. "The Professor") now...

Jessica is back in the news, and this time it's not related to her breakup! Apparently Ms. Simpson is not as ditzy as she would have us believe, and the Bush clan is throwing a tantrum about it. Simpson's decision to NOT appear as a Republican supporter at their fund-raising dinner was met with toddler tantrum comments including "It's never been a problem for Bono" (read But Bono does it!) and "Simpson is currently featured wearing cowboy boots and hot pants in a TV pizza ad" (read well, if she wears hot pants we don't want her ANYWAY!). The Republicans look stupid (again) and Jessica, for once, looks like the smart blonde. GO JESS! Great handbags AND dissing Republicans...I think I'm in love! Photo courtesy of AOL

Saks catalog photo of the chamois Edith...courtesy of my FABULOUS friend in NY (since Saks has not sent mine). I love the whiskey color, but this would be gorgeous with jeans! Hmmm....

Mousse Big Pocket Paddington arrived this morning and when they say "big" they are NOT kidding! This bag is huge!

Well, I have FINALLY made up my mind. Tonight I ordered the new Big Pocket Paddington in mousse. There is some question as to what color mousse really is...LVR shows it (above) as a dark green-grey, but there is another photo below that shows it as a lighter color with more blue. Either way I will be happy. I love the dark grey, and I loved my jeans moyen (but sent it back because the style was wrong for me), so if it is the bluish color that looks pretty close. Glad to have ONE decision out of the way...

Here is an "actual" photo of the mousse color taken by Roz77772002 (she has a mousse Paddington available on eBay if anyone is interested, and an EXCELLENT reputation as a legitimate seller of authentic items).

The ultimate Chloe Paddington...the Vanity/Train Case. No one has this. Few Chloe enthusiasts have even SEEN this bag. So which of the bags below do you think comes closest?

Here is a more detailed photo of bag #4 (below)...

Here is a more detailed photo of bag #3 (from photo below)...

My picks of Chloe's spring/summer lineup. I have the first bag (Edith) on pre-order, and the blue Paddy had to go back...the shape was just wrong for me (but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color!). So now I am between bags 3 and 4 (essentially the same bag, but different sizes and the larger version has wraparound straps to the front pocket). I hate decisions! I would probably do tan, taupe or chocolate and not the grey-green color in either. HELP!
