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.

Yves Saint Laurent Spiral Clutch

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.

    My sister is a writer. She has a notebook fetish, too. You know those composition notebooks? She has hundreds. She would love this clutch. But the first thing that I thought when I saw it was that it looks like an agenda and it would make me think of work–yuck!

    I am not a writer but I always loved school and school supplies.

    You definitely need to buy this.

    Oh, that’s wonderful! It really looks like a little notebook it’s okay to carry around with you.

    I also seem to collect notebooks, pens, pencils… I can spend at least an hour in a tiny stationary store. This clutch is adorably sleek. I love it!

    I have to see it in person because it might look like a notepad and then it won’t really speak to me. I totally understand the notebook obsession but i just never caught that bug. However for that price and for that ingenuity i applaud YSL again and again.

    I don’t see the point of a clutch looking like a basic shiny notebook. (ipad)
