FAQs About Neely & Chloe
Neely & Chloe Burch are famed fashion designer Tory Burch’s nieces.
Neely & Chloe is a women-owned business! Sisters Neely & Chloe Burch have followed in their famous aunt’s footsteps by creating an accessory brand that “redefines luxury.”
“We make precious things – items of quality and beauty – that are to be used for years. We believe that great design stirs our emotional connection to a product. The mark of a luxury is not its price or a logo – it is the inherent beauty, quality and usefulness of something special and worth keeping. Luxury should never be out of each. We have sought to create a line of handbags and shoes that redefines luxury.” – Neely & Chloe
Their products are catching steam and have been featured in Vogue, Glamour, Elle, InStyle, Forbes “30 Under 30” and more!
I first became aware of them when my favorite preppy bloggers started carrying their purses and when I also saw their purses being sold at one of my favorite preppy retailers, Tuckernuck.
Review of Neely & Chloe Packable Bucket Crossbody Tote Purse for Travel
Best for those looking for bags that are packable yet still luxurious
I knew I wanted a Neely & Chloe purse in the gorgeous forest green color. And when I saw the No. 50 The Packable Bucket Croc Embossed bag, I was sold!
Why didn’t anyone this of this sooner?! It quickly unsnaps on the sides and unzips around the bottom to lay completely flat in a suitcase for easy travel.
Problem — Solved!:
It’s a really simple solution for the problem of wanting to travel with more than one purse but not wanting to fill up your entire suitcase with bulky handbags. And it’s a bonus that it’s a beautifully designed bag, not a shapeless sack, which so often is the case for travel bags.
Here are some of the features of the No. 50 The Packable Bucket Croc Embossed tote purse:
- Measures 10” (L) x 4” (D) x 7.5” (H)
- Sturdy croc-embossed leather
- Customizable with embossing / custom hand painting
- Travel friendly
- Designed in the U.S.A.
- Highest quality materials from Spain & Portugal
- Removable crossbody strap
- Interior pocket
- Spot clean
- Easy returns
I knew I wanted to emboss my bag to customize it, but I was worried about the time it would take, as I had a getaway planned about 12 days later. I started a chat and immediately got a response from a “real person” that I would receive my custom bag in two days.
Well, I got my custom monogrammed purse THE NEXT DAY. I have NEVER received such speedy service in anywhere near this lightning-fast timeframe. I felt like this woman-owned business was working HARD and prioritizing excellent customer service!
And I adore the No. 50 The Packable Bucket Croc Embossed. I find it to be the perfect size to hold a lot without looking huge and also to carry by the handles or as a crossbody. Since this is a book + lifestyle blog, I especially note that this tote bag is a great size for carrying a Kindle or paperback book, which is essential for me!
I also found the quality to be extremely sturdy and what I would expect of a high-end bag several times the cost.
Tip: I also highly recommend adding embossing or hand painting. Neely & Chloe’s purses are far more cost-effective than other designer bags, so it’s easier to justify the added cost of customization. The final result just adds to how chic and sophisticated these bags look.
Overall, I highly recommend the No. 50 The Packable Bucket Croc Embossed tote bag, especially if you are looking for a designer purse that’s easy to travel with. It exceeded my expectations in its rich color, sturdy quality, unique customization, affordable price, ease of use for travel AND customer service.
