Funny, I bought the small tan yesterday. But the mini can’t up for me at $650.00! I put in my cart, I wish I’d jumped on it, but I decided to look look at the small too, and when I went back to look at the mini it was $800 again. Oh well, I got the small tan for just about half price, can’t complain.

I have the Small Tan and HIGHLY recommend it at a sale price!!
I bought it and picked it up same day. I’ve bough a few bags already this year so I’m debating keeping it. What do you love about it? I think the problem is I have asked family members and none are crZy about it. Lol

I don’t have mine yet but the reason I got it was because I went shopping the other day. I needed sheets so was in Bed Bath and Beyond. They had no carts so I got a hand basket. I had some little things in the basket, like candles, and put my heav, CA King sheets in. I looked at things at floor level. My handbag was a satchel but I was carrying crossbody, and it kept flopping all over and bumping into stuff as I was bending over. It was really not convenient. I can’t carry too small a bag though, I need my stuff. :smile:.

When I saw the Faye go on sale I realized it’d be perfect for trips like that, when I just need a few things and might be doing bending, etc. Throw it on as a backpack in stores, carry it in hand other times.

Last time I had a backpack bag was 20 years ago and I had little kids. It was a big leather thing, very backpack-looking, but very convenient. They went out of fashion but this Faye is multi-function and modern so I think it’s cool and useful. I’d been looking for a new everyday bag that I’d carry most of the time. I was thinking a leather hobo but had not considered a multifunction bag-until it went on sale!

We’ll see when mine comes what I think when it’s in hand. I’ve seen it before in person and found it gorgeous but at the time, I didn’t want a backpack style. But sometimes, bags just get in the way and being able to put it on your back is so helpful!

The small fits a lot without being a "big" bag/backpack. I tend toward smaller bags and the small Faye Backpack really isn't a big bag at all. I know that can be subjective based on one's individual size. I'm 5'9", but I tend toward very small bags (Coach Dinky's/Saddle's are my daily go-to) and the Small Chloe Faye Backpack is a medium sized bag for me.

If you don’t mind sharing what do you usually carry in yours?

I am also curious to know. Mine arrives next week! :cool:

I currently carry the large Rebecca Minkoff Julian backpack but needed an upgrade.

I put some in mine but not sure if it’s the right combo the weight is kinda lopsided. I have a card case, hard pack of gum, Sunnies, LV mm agenda, lotion, snack bar, phone charger, pill case, sticker book, pen, some lip glosses and mirror. There’s still room

I just wanted to know what other do

Has anybody tried Collinell spray protectant on theirs? I’ve used it on suede shoes before but I feel like you could see it, just the smallest bit. The shoes were red and I feel like they got the smallest bit darker. I didn’t hate it or anything but you never know. Maybe I oversprayed? I didn’t see it on smooth leather, and also put it on nude suede and didn’t see changes so may have just been red, but I love the two tans together and don’t want them changed.

But ....it’d probably be better than rain and dirt!

I sprayed my mini faye backpack in motty grey with the Collonil Vario spray. I didn't notice any darkening of the suede or leather. Did 2 coats if I remember right.

Just a tip: I always open my bag by pulling on the ring rather than pulling on the flap. This avoids the darkening of the suede around the logo that most faye bags/backpacks get (most bags I've seen online or in reviews have a dark patch over the logo area, which is where most people place their thumbs to open the bag).

I snagged the mini from Nordstrom's sale - motty gray! Arrives tomorrow :smile:
Does anybody have any recommendations on a good crossbody strap to use with this one?

I always loved the Faye backpack, but Im torn between the mini and the small size (I prefer the shape of the mini, but perhaps it s not enough for my stuff) and between the tan and the black one... I already have a Roy in small size/tan, but the look is different. And i dont have a Chloé shop near my city to try them!
