Shopping At Scotland for Chloe Vermillion Red Marcie Tote – The Must-Have Perfect Red Bag

Posted in Chloe, Handbags & Accessories with tags , on May 29, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Ok girls, we all know know how hard it is to find the perfect RED color bag! either they are too orange, too dull looking or the design is just ugly! but this season, the house of CHLOE has presented this perfect RED bag that every fashionistas all over the world are all trying to land their hands on one of this “Vermillion” red color Marcie Tote!

I am so excited to introduce you our newest contributing editor “Becky” from Glasgow, Scotland! She is gonna share with us about this newest Must-Have “IT” bag – The Chloe Marcie tote in the beautiful “Vermillion” Flame red color!

I’m a massive Mulberry fan. I was in a dept store in my home city Glasgow,Scotland checking out the newest Mulberry styles. To be honest I was horrified. The colours are fabulous but the new Spongy Patent Leather is not my cup of tea. As I walked out, I looked around properly for the first time in ages. Vermillion Marcie was just above eye level and she stopped me in my tracks.

I think of Paddington & Silverado when I think of Chloe and they aren’t my thing. I briefly had a Bays and a Saskia but sold them on. So I wasn’t prepared for the elegance and simplicity of the lines of Marcie. The leather is so soft and strong and luscious. The colour is so uncompromisingly RED. And what in the world can you say about Marcie handles. Utterly sublime!

I went home and googled for pics and info and went back the next day, half hoping it was a fleeting fancy rather than a falling in love! However I knew this was it and I also knew I did not have anywhere near that amount of disposable cash.

So I went home again and looked at all my Mulberrys and decided to sell some of them to fund this. I have to add that because I looked at Marcie, I looked at all of the Chloes, and saw a Large Nutmeg Paraty which broke my heart with its beauty. Which one?? Marcie or Paraty?

Well I went home and pulled out all my bags, sold £2000 plus of them, and bought both Chloes!! Luckily at 20% discount that day.

I sold some beloved bags to fund this I can tell you. However most of the sales were to girls on The Purse Forum and the pleasure I have got from their pleasure has only added to my happiness with Marcie and Paraty.

It is very hard to find a fabulous Red bag that doesn’t wear you.  I think Marcie is that bag because she lifts your spirits just too look at her and lifts your outfit without overwhelming it.   –  Becky

Even tho I have a good collection of high-end bags includes Chanel, Prada, Alexander McQueen, JP Tods, Fendi & Balenciaga just to name a few, but Mulberry has always had a spot in my heart and I can’t get enough of their fabulous bags!

My very first Mulberry bag was their signature “Bayswater” bag! it kinda reminds me of the super fabulous Hermes Birkin but without the $15,000 price tag! it’s super roomy, light weight ( Hermes Birkin is heavy!! ). The oversized Alexa bag I got today is an updated version of the “Bayswater” bag with a twist.

” It reflects one of the maor seasonal themes of schoolgirl naivety and effortless charm” , said by Mulberry.

The bag is made of buffalo-leather satchel-style shoulder bag with gold-tone hardware. Mulberry bag has a plaited top handle, a detachable shoulder strap, a fold-over flap with magnetic press-stud fastening buckled tabs, a twist lock fastening at front, tabs at sides to adjust, internal pouch and zipped pockets and is fully lined in designer-stamped gray twill.

• This oversized handbag fits over the shoulder, across the body or can be worn in the crook of the arm.

• Width 15″ / 38cm x Height 12″ / 31cm x Depth 6″ / 16cm

• Handle Drop 2″ / 5cm and the long leather strap can extend up to 50″ long to wear across the body as a messenger bag

Ok, here is a photo of me modeling my new Mulberry Oversized Alexa ! ( I know I am not a model size but just wanna show y’all this pic for the proportion of this bag against to a male fashionista’s body, and it’s truly a fabulous UNISEX bag! )
