On the Street: Chloé Mini Drew

Chloe Drew Mini 5

Bag Watch: Tell me the story behind your bag! Where did you pick it out and how did you come across it?

Melanie: I was in Europe for a work trip and shopping with a few friends.  I never owned a luxury bag before and wanted to invest in one that I could use again and again, so I started looking for one on this trip.  My friends (who are both more experienced and knowledgeable about handbags) wisely told me that “when I find the right bag, I’ll know”.  After browsing through almost all of the stores on that street, I happened to see the Drew on a mannequin and immediately knew that it was the bag  for me. It matched my style and was exactly what I was looking for.

BW: Did you think about another bag seriously before deciding on this one?

Melanie: I did – I saw a Fendi bag online that I considered buying, but decided that I should see the bag in person first before purchasing. I’m glad I waited – the Drew definitely fit me better.

BW: Do you feel like this bag was a good purchase? What do you like most about it?

Melanie: Yes!  I love that the bag goes with most outfits I wear. It’s also a bag that I can wear both during the daytime (to a brunch or the movies) and during an evening out.

BW: What do you usually fit in this bag and does it hold a lot? 

Melanie: I was actually concerned in the beginning that I wouldn’t be able to hold everything I needed in this bag, but so far it hasn’t been a problem.  I usually carry just the basics around (like my phone, credit cards, and keys).

BW: Are there any not-so-great things that you didn’t anticipate?

Melanie: Not yet – I had originally anticipated that keeping the bag clean would be a problem, but I’ve been very careful (and fears of spills have yet to be realized). Rainy days like today also make me nervous – but the bag seems to have held up well!

BW: If you had to do your luxury bag purchase all over again, would you pick this bag?

Melanie: Absolutely!  I think it’s a great versatile ‘first-time’ luxury bag that can be used for many years to come. It also instantly elevates any outfit.
