Chloe Orange Sally!

I want this Chloe purple Sally when it first came out; However, I told myself that I am staying w/ Chanel period so I didn't plan to buy it but I appreciate its muted elegance ever since.



I didn't know the purple and the orange Sally go on sale since I am just back from vacation. But, you know, during the sale season, you really should just stay home, otherwise, you will end of liking me, accidentally bought this gorgeous Chloe orange Sally home today.

Since it is a very "challenging", and "rich" orange, I have no clue how should I pull off the bag....I need more inspiration. I searched online but didn't see any celebrity carrying an orange Sally and even only a few carrying true orange bag. Oh....well, I think I will start from black ensemble pairing it w/ my Hermes ostrich belt then. Can't go wrong w/ anything black!!




Luckily, this orange Sally has double compartments which might even fit a bit more than Chanel class medium flap or reissue bag.



Don't laugh, you must be wondering why do I like this Dior dress so much?? In fact, when the first day I bought this Vintage Dior two pieces dress and after done altering it to one-shouldered blouse, I want to wear it to public as often as I can. Do you think I am too stubborn?? :P

Now I need to think of a pair of heels!

Hi R,

that is one pretty orange bag you got! congrats.

we were just talking about no mood in shopping for new bags...

i got a Gucci tattoo Joy tote 3 weeks ago. i have been using it since.

still, it doesnt mean i am in a bag mood. i have not used my chanel bags much. you would think PPT and PST are good for casual wears. but for my life style, they are still a bit too delicate.

i like your maxmara clogs. i bet you will get a lot of use out of them. :) i did to my clogs. they called me for a visit to their store since they are having a sale now. i have not made to the store... i have been going to the places for my son only.

i did buy a few capri, shorts...sneakers, flats...

sorry, a typo. i meant 'PTT and PST' - i have both petite timesless tote and petite shopping tote.

Hi, Julia: yes, I know what bags you have. I would assume you are just not used to carrying Chanel bags at a daily basis. I know you have way too many other brand bags. haha...today, I took my bags collection shots and just found out I only have 8 Chanel and 5 other brand bags, not so bad. :) (including Chole..haha..)

Hum..I don't know what is tattoo bag you got but it sure sounds interesting. I will search it on line.

I just bought that clog heels and have not wore it out yet. Maybe sometime this week then. :>

Hi Rachel!! How are you doing? Wow you're busy shopping already after you came back!

You know what? I've been eyeing this Chloe Sally bag as well as Chloe Paraty bag for the longest time ever too!! LOL!! Coz the Sally bag looks like Chanel chain bag but with a twist. I like it. Just that my DH won't let me buy any other brands except Chanel for bags. He said I can only carry Chanel and Hermes in the future. Hahahaha! Well not that I mind, but sometimes, I find that bags from other designers are more "interesting".

Anyway, congrats on your new Chloe Sally bag and Max Mara clogs! Can't wait for you to model them!

For the Chloe orange Sally bag, I think it will look good with khaki/beige/taupe colors or light gray. Or if you like shocking color, try pink with orange! Hehehe....!

U haven't been in the forum for a while. I have no mood at all to model or do my reveals coz what's happening here in HK. The swine flu is getting worse and there's news every day of new cases in primary/secondary schools. That's why our Education Bureau decided to stop all classes in nursery & primary schools and they are all closed now. So scary...I hope it's not an epidemic like SARS.

Anyway, welcome back again!

Hi Rachel,

Congrats on your new Chloe!! I have an orange-colored bag like it, and I like to pair mine with navy blue, since blue and orange are complementary colors. Also, this orange is not too bright, it's more of burnt-orange, so you can wear it all year round. Very good buy!!! Are you going to buy a purple one too?

White Lily said...

Chloe is my favorite brand of bags...

Orange is fantastic with cool rich jewel colors, like emerald green amethyst purple, turquoise etc.. I also like it with a total white look, and metallic gold sandals!

Congrats on your new bag it's TDF!!!

LinLin said...

White Lily said...

oooohh!!! I love the Sally :) Where did u get it from? I've been trying to be good abt shopping lately but I'm very tempted right now to go out and find the purple one on sale...

litlstrawberry said...

quick note for Purse Addict. I got that in Standford Nord. and you can just check in any nord. and see how many they left in the company. Or boutique, maybe they even have purple left for 50%off better deal than Nord.

litlstrawberry said...

wow..thanks, girls. I am very appreciated that you gals give me so many input. I have blue in mind...but don't know if the whole look works....

Lily: that pic. you send me looks like she is wearing all Hermes stuff...haha....so luxury look of that orange and white ensemble.

Michelle: yah, I know, I have no mood in modeling odj...but I think I will do that again in the near future.
I know focus on Chanel and Hermes is great as an investment plan...but we know, sometimes, certain look just needed different twist from other brands....I guess I can no longer hold on only Chanel ..aha.......

litlstrawberry said...

Isabel: Thanks for picking up my Navy striped reissue and I will try to call the repair manager first to let her know you are picking up that for me.

Oh..btw, your orange bag? I never heard about it...so what's brand it is? Bottaga? or Prada? haha...

I have couple ensemble that might work w/ it but I have to try it sometimes. Thanks for the color suggestion.

litlstrawberry said...

hi, Lin: you are such a beauty w/ delicate features. Thanks for the compliment on my Dior dress. But I doubt when I will wear that whole SET out....so far, I've only wear the TOP alone in public. haha...

Betsy said...

Rachel - So this is where everyone is hanging out these days. :) I see Mia, Steffe, Izybeli.... what a nice little party here.

I've never looked much into Chloe bags but this orange Sally is a beauty! I really like how it has two compartments and the delicate chain. Id' love to see it on you some time (though probably not at Whole Foods).

Btw, I need to ask you a few questions about Vegas. Will write you directly to your email.

Hi, Betsy:
hahah....yes, here is a little more focus....on fashion AND a little LIFE perceptiveness we can share. :) I guess we would feel more close here than in TPF. :P

oh...yah, I wore my MaxMara clog heels yesterday and today I carried my Orange Sally...I didn't came out a black nor blue nor white ensemble w/ it since I love colors and especially deep, rich colors. So..we will see how is the pic. turns out.

I took kids to Berkeley (Emeryville) yesterday w/ my high school pal. They have great furniture outlet there...such as EQ3 (crate n' berry's cataloge line) and Ikea, West Elm. I bought something to update our room. :)

Hi Rachel!! You're so right to say that "certain look just needed different twist from other brands"...so I took your advise and I bought the bag!! LOL!! We're twins now!! Gosh...I just need a push signal to justify me getting the Sally bag which I've been eyeing for the longest time since its first release!! Hahahaha! And since it's on sale in Nordstrom, I think it's perfectly justified! Sally bags in Hong Kong don't have discounts at all since it's their "classic" line. So, I'm lucky to get the last piece in Nordstrom. According to my SA, there are only 2 left in the entire US Nordstrom chain store and I got the last piece! Yay! Thanks to you Rachel! This orange bag is very pretty and I don't think Chanel can make an orange bag like that (it won't look that good on a classic Chanel flap). So, I really have to thank you for the inspiration! Hehehehehe! Can't wait for your ODJ pix with Sally bag + clogs + deep rich colors! :D Have a nice weekend!
