Happy Monday! Today’s post I have been looking forward to sharing with all of you because it is all about my new favorite bag designers: Neely & Chloe. This past week I was able to attend a pop-up shop in Gladwyne to view the current collection of Neely & Chloe. The accessories brand had recently launched their debut fall 2016 collection and showcased for the first time in the Philadelphia area. I was able to attend with two of my favorite blogger friends, Carly and Amanda and that night it was safe to say we fell in love with everything in the collection.
The first thing that I noticed with the collection is the classic style of all their accessories. The leather handbags, suede loafers, smoking slippers, wallets and accessories are timeless. I could see myself wearing everything in the collection for years and never having to worry about anything going out of style.
Specifically, I loved how versatile and different all the bag styles were. Not only were they timeless but extremely functionable. My favorites (if I had to choose a few) were the satchel, shoulder bag, lady bag, and backback. All of these bags I could see myself wearing for almost any occasion but the backpack caught my eye due to the hands-free capabilities and hidden pocket that would fit my cell phone perfectly. I also loved the color options (the pink and cognac were my favorite) and the fact it also came in a gorgeous suede material which I loved. The quality on everything was impeccable. While most bags in the market like this might cost a small fortune, Neely & Chloe found a way to make everything in their collection under $300!
The shoes were also an obsession of mine. I could not get over how comfortable and well-made they were. I tried on these light blue tassel suede loafer’s and it took every ounce of will-power not to walk out with them that night. The patent black smoking slipper was another of our favorites and would go with everything this season. In terms of sizing, I felt all the shoes fit pretty true to size. Typically I am between two sizes when I order shoes and found the suede loafer’s to hug my foot perfectly with the larger size. The patent leather slippers I would probably stick to my smaller size.
One last aspect of the collection that I adored was the way you could personalize your bags. Whether you want to add an unique tassel, luggage tag, or bag ornament..the options are endless. Neely & Chloe even allows you to get a gold foil embossed monogram on your bag which is a personal favorite touch of mine.
If you are looking for a gift idea this holiday season, I would definitely check out the current collection at www.neelyandchloe.com or head to their brand-new Bleecker Street store in NYC. I know I already asked my husband if Santa would be bringing those loafer’s and I am keeping my fingers crossed. They have even extended their Black Friday Sale to Cyber Monday with up to 20% off through today.
Thank you so much for having us, Neely & Chloe!
