Chloé Baylee medium tote, HK$15,920/£1,280. Shop here, now.
Oooh it's been a while since I last had an indulgent bag moment, hasn't it? Meet the newest member of the Mish handbag collection: my Chloé Baylee.

There's (as always) a bit of a story that doubles as justification for this gratuitous purchase. I've had this particular style on my ongoing wishlist for over a year now, forever drawn in by the buttery soft Italian leather, the delicate charm chain and the tougher, wide shoulder strap detail. My only question and drawback each time I got near to a Chloé store or concession was: which colour? Until I went on holiday to Hong Kong in August and noted my cousins BOTH toting one. Each.

Of course we wandered over to the Chloé store in Tsim Sha Tsui for a post-飲茶 shop and they selected this peachy coral and nude colourway for me. In fact, I did return to England empty-handed.

But now I'm here permanently with a shiny new job and at our work sample sale, lo and behold, was MY bag in MY colourway.

The Chloé Baylee is a beautiful, luxury update to the daily tote that you'd carry around to work, to shop or to play. With plenty of room to store the essentials plus with enough room for a tablet or Kindle, it's ideal for long commutes. There are lots of sneaky little compartments in the main section, which I use to stash keys, my Octopus card and spare cash, but the real beauty comes with its two-tone look, meaning you could essentially flip the bag around to match your outfit.

I adore the top handles, the glimmers of gold hardware and the handy wide shoulder strap: it actually looks super cool and modern with the wider shape! I'm so pleased I finally bought this bag, I'm completely smitten with it and I've used it almost every day since picking it up.

  3. These photos are perfection Mish. I think that grey sofa is the perfect backdrop plus the high rise living means so much natural lighting! Score! This is the real reason you moved back to HK right? Ha. I love the Baylee and it's unbelievable that you got it in the staff sample sale for a bargain!
