Ever find a bag that just SPEAKS to you? Like, on a personal level that other people may not understand? That’s what the Yves Saint Laurent Spiral Clutch is doing to me. And I’d love to…nay, I HAVE TO…have it.
See, I’m a writer. I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was six. Writers often have an odd relationship with the old-school tools of our trade; pens, notebooks, things like that. I’ve even know writers that collect vintage typewriters. When I was little, I’d use the stray dollars and coins I collected from various things (mostly from my mom. Hi, mom!) to go to the school store (do they have those in elementary school anymore?) to buy office supplies. Pens, pencils, notebooks. I still have an inordinate amount of pens in my apartment and, until recently, had an entire cup-holder filled with them in my car. I also find it incredibly difficult to throw away a notebook I’ve written anything in, even if it was just schoolwork from a college career that’s been over for more than a year. It’s not a fixation I think about; pens and notebooks are just things I’ve always liked. And, as such, I love this clutch. The reference is done in a way that is so sleek and irreverent that I can’t help but smile when I look at it. Even for those that aren’t writers, I have to believe that this is interesting enough to have a certain sort of appeal. Buy through Saks for $395.
