Thrifty Thursday: Chloe Paddington Leather Padlock Satchel for a Steal

Kitty cats, on the left you’ll find Chloe’s luxurious Paddington Leather Padlock Satchel – the very same one dangling delicately from the arm of Kate Bosworth, Nicky Hilton, Mischa Barton, Katy Perry, Alessandra Ambrosio, Halle Berry, Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan and many more of your favorite celebutantes; on the right you’ll spot baghaus’ Madeleine Padlock Tote.

Though the baghaus beauty is made out of synthetic leather, as opposed to the calfskin leather making up the couture Chloe piece; for just $39.95, as compared to the $1,875.00 price tag of the original, it is every bit as magical as its high priced predecessor – and leaves room for the budget fashionista to indulge in more than one color!

Now the question remains…will you be thrifty, or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?


Fashionably yours!

WOW that's such a big difference in price & they really look alike!!!! I'll take the cheaper one with the synthetic leather. It doesn't bother me at all to have non-real leathers. Both are hot tho!

Oana Roxana said...

I won't choose this time.I like them both. :)
Have a nice day!

anhesty said...

I have found your blog seriously, a few seconds ago and I love it already! I really, really really like the bag too! And if anyone is like me and I totally abuse my bag by shoving too much in it...I would always rather be thrifty and not have any problems if I ruin a very nice bag!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Holy wow. I want them both, lol.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Great look for less. I would die for ANY Chloe bag :)

AMK said...

I think the bag CLOE is much better, for me.

XOXO

Sarah said...

I would have to go for both! They're pretty much identical :)

I am rolling with Chloe I can never go the thrifty route with handbags!

Excellent find.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Visually I was totally in love with the Chloe Paddington until I actually held it in my hands and realised HOW HEAVY the big lock is. But if you do love the bag, I think your thrifty find is a fabulous alternative. xoxo

Maddy said...

I'll have to say the "real deal" when it comes to this one! I've seen the Chloe Paddington in person and it's just divine! Usually the quality leather, hardware and craftsmanship on designer bags is far superior to its "inspired" counterparts.

Maddy said...

BTW - No Twins ;o) Only two sisters that the world seems to swear we look alike! I personally don't see it.

Very nifty. But I gotta say, the Chloe wins simply because the texture and color are part of this bag's charm.

Valerie said...

Oh my goodness, I LOVE the concept of the lock on a bag. What a great idea! And $39.99???? SCORE! Great find, Erika!

Joanne said...

I've been looking for a summer handbag for a long while now and can't seem to find one I like. These don't do it for me either. I wanted something for the summer maybe in a canvas instead of a leather, or a leather done in a summery way. Do you take requests for Thrifty Thursday? That's mine, a canvas purse :)

Sara Lynn said...

I love the brown one! it is too cute and I love brown, just seems to go with more ya know? I have to say that I adore the bag but not the lock, It looks cute, but I know I would bash it against something because I am a giant klutz :P I hope your having a good week Erica :)

The Blonde Duck said...

It's pretty, but not $1000 pretty!

Couture Carrie said...

Hmmmm... The Chloe Paddington is pretty much my dream bag... Will have to be a spendthrift on this one!

But am duly impressed with your thrifty find, darling, as always!

xoxox,

Leia said...

My heart is still with the Chloe!

johanna said...

I'm developing my own awards, keep watching my blog and facebook for my details .
Keep following,

AH said...

the baghaus one looks great, but i'd still go for the chloe bag!

janettaylor said...

Chloe! Yepp, please!

ellie said...

Oh, I'd hate to kill a calf over something like that.

Sherin said...

I love the Chloe Padlock bag. It is such an iconic bag.

ivy's closet said...

The way I go through bags, might as well go for the cheaper one. I'm cheap. So much cheaper than even 40 bucks. But I'd so keep that style in mind while on the hunt at thrift stores and even Dollar General.

meg said...

Definitely thrift on this one. I'd hate for someone to see me in public with something that expensive.

Rachel said...

The baghaus version looks so similar to the Chloe so I think I'll have to be thrifty this time around!

ediot said...

hi darling. ah i remember lusting after that chloe bag for such a long time.. now id forgotten about it-- but here you go with your great post-and make me wanna get it get it get it... but then- probably cant afford the original.. the other is very much alike.though i bet especially the feel is such a big difference.
hope youre having a wonderful week love

xxxxx ediot

♥ joei said...

umm... i think i still would have to be 'suckered' into buying the chloe bag ;)


definitely, maybe

ak said...

dont you just love finding amazing replicas...esp when it comes to things that are wayyyy too trendy

xx

Alicia said...

oh i would love to own a chloe bag one day but for now that knockoff will be perfect!! :)

Leah said...

You know my stand when it comes to bags... I'd take the original anytime. Bags are my greatest weakness. xoxo

Grace said...

The original sure is to die for, but the sensible option would be the baghaus. I'll have to check it out; I've been looking for a bag like that.

Elaine said...

Wow... that IS a steal!

clothed much, a modest fashion blog

Dancing Branflake said...

I love the baghaus one! The color especially. That could totally be my go to bag. Wow.

Taj Acosta said...

It's such a great deal! xoxo

thesydneygirl said...

MelRoXx said...

Clare said...

That bag is super cute. I am in the market for a new brown bag.... This one is going into the running :)

mom & son said...

I still love Chloe but it's too heavy
in my pocket. One day, it will be mine :-)

Melanie said...

S.Elisabeth said...

Spendthrift for sure! Oh my gosh I even love the color of the cheaper one better!

Nubiasnonsense said...

Hey sweets!

This is a really really good find..the price difference is nuts.. I love the Chloe bag though hmmm

Pixie Drive-In said...

Ooo, great steal find! It's a gorgeous purse!

The Backseat Stylers said...

I'm a sucker through and through.

Meream said...

I'm torn. I like the color of the Chloe bag. But $18k+???

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Baghaus! There's almost no difference. I look forward to these like every day btw :)

jen said...

I'd have to go with the Chloe, first because it is leather, and second because the hardware and detailing on the baghaus looks like too much of a knock off...

that being said though, I don't wish to ever spend that much on a purse (unless it's a Chanel 2.55!)

have a great weekend!

Jen

Sootjeelina said...

I have a HUGE addiction for bags, and this one is so cute :D

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

Sara Bentley said...

The Baghaus version looks very similar and is definitely a real steal, but I must admit that I'm already a friend of the original Chloe Paddington :)

Susu Paris Chic said...

I juts love the shape of these beauties.

Cindy Whitehead said...

Huge price difference - that is a steal - love it!!!

So cute, they look so similar!

Jamie said...

WELL...usually I go for the steal, but when it comes to handbags, that's where I do the splurging...If I HAD the money for the Chloe bag, then I would get the real thing. The craftsmanship on these bags is what makes them last a lifetime. HOWEVER since I do not have the money for the Chloe bag...I guess I am going to have to be thrifty aren't I??

J. said...

If I could, I would go for the Chloe, but I can't, so I'm thrifty today!

Kate said...

OR! The real thing on on auction at reFINEstyle.com :) http://www.refinestyle.com/chloe-bags-shoulder-listing-l1271788841.html

The Fashion Suggestion said...

Chloe bags are forever beautiful. They're stylish and would definitely go with any outfit. Even if you're just wearing a casual outfit, pair it with a Chloe bag and you're gonna be a stunner.
