Visual aid: the Edith in rouge (as seen on the Luisaviaroma website):
Nice, but. Eh. About 1275.00, if you're curious, or you've suddenly been overcome with bag lust and must buy one immediately.
Like I said, the mysteries of the Edith have eluded me...until now. Yes, the scales have fallen from my eyes and I've been blinded by the light! In my own defense, the light that's calling me is beaming from a slightly different direction. It's the Big Edith, also in rouge, also from the Luisaviaroma website:
After seeing this baby (and loving it!), I ran to my local bag forum to oooh and ahhh with long-time Chloe lovers. To my great surprise, many of the opinions given were negative. A few people called the bag the red-headed bastard love child of the regular Edith and Yves Saint Laurent's very lovely Muse. Well, if the designers at Chloe were indeed inspired by the Muse, they have good taste. More power to them!
If I had to give Chloe a few thousand dollars for one of their products, the Big Edith would be my pick. Ah, she is love.
Today's bag: Yellow Coach tote.
