Yves Saint Laurent Shopping Tote

I’m normally something of a YSL fangirl, but despite the brand’s history of sleek, classic bags, even they make a misstep every once in a while. It’s a forgivable thing to do, for sure, but that has never stopped me from calling a spade a spade, so to speak. Ladies and gentlemen, the Yves Saint Laurent Shopping Tote is a spade. Which is to say, of course, that it’s a misstep, as are all the bags with this weird raised […] Read More

Name That Bag: Yves Saint Laurent Buckle Bag

A couple readers have emailed me to ask about this YSL bag. While it is very easy to immediately see that this is a Yves Saint Laurent bag, I had a hard time finding more information on this bag. Like the season it is from, are there more being produced, and why it is so utterly-absolutely-fabulous?! The YSL logo produced by buckles is so ultra-chic I am having a hard time getting this image out of my own head. Clearly […] Read More

Want It Wednesday: YSL Jungle Theme

Do you have a bucket list? I never technically sat down to write what I want to do before I die, but I have an ever-growing list of things I would like to do in my life-time (ok, does that make it a bucket list?!). On the list is visit a jungle and go on the zip line through the jungle. If any of you have done it, please do tell me about it in the comments! Having jungle themed […] Read More

Selma Blair Carries a Sunshine-y Saint Laurent Bag

A newly blond Selma Blair was recently spotted carrying a Saint Laurent Classic Duffle in yellow while taking her son Arthur to a playdate in LA. Selma is a favorite of Marc Jacobs, and it would seem that perhaps Hedi Slimane has taken a shine to her as well. This duffle is available for $1,990 at Nordstrom. If yellow isn’t the most flattering hue on you, it also comes in grey, black, red, and brown. You might remember the recent […] Read More

UPDATE: The Saint Laurent Paris Cabas plot thickens…

Last week, we noticed a slightly modified Yves Saint Laurent Cabas ChYc Bag had just popped up on the Nordstrom website as the Saint Laurent Paris Cabas Classique, and it seemed as though we all knew what kind of changes we could expect for the beloved Cabas ChYc, at least for the season ahead. The big wasn’t quite as tall, and as a commenter noted, the handle bales had been switched from ovals to squares. No doubt about it, that […] Read More

Yves Saint Laurent Y-Bow Suede Bowler

Ask anyone that knows me (including Megs and Vlad) – I’ve never had much of a problem forming an opinion. About pretty much anything, in fact. I was captain of the debate team in high school. I took lots of comparative lit classes in college because their assignments usually involved forming an opinion on a book and then arguing it in a paper. My life is exceedingly wordy and over-articulated. I talk too much. Having said all of that, I […] Read More

Saint Laurent Outlet: have you bought them?

I can’t wear heels. I won’t get into the story of exactly why because it’s gruesome and I don’t want to ruin the next few minutes of your life, but suffice it to say, heels are not an option. Also, I can’t wear most knee-high boots because I have enormous calves, and most designers don’t embrace the big calf market. So my ability to appreciate and enjoy the new over-the-knee-boot trend is limited to merely watching from a distance, so […] Read More
