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 items in no means satiates my wanting to visit the jungle, but I will take leopard print fashion and sexy green shoes any time. My Want It Wednesday this week focuses on Yves Saint Laurent; more specifically a Roady Hobo, Tribute Sandals, and Zig-Zag necklace. (more…)

Yes, you all know the love I have for clutches. Frankly, I cannot have enough clutches in my collection. They all just seem to serve such an amazing purpose. While I love my clutches, with the warm Spring and Summer months upon us, I began to wonder: do most people put away their dark colored clutches and opt for brightly colored ones – OR – are the darker clutches used all year long, no matter what?

Something to ponder, huh?

Well, no matter what side of the handbag fence you are on here, there is no denying how gorgeous this brightly colored Yves Saint Laurent Y Clutch is. And if I had several clutches colored like this, there is a good chance I’d put my darker colored clutches away until the Fall and Winter. (more…)

Yesterday, Yves Saint Laurent relaunched YSL.com with a fresh assortment of iconic YSL products that are exclusive to their online store. Many of the products are never-before-seen in boutiques, but we have the inside scoop on some of the items hitting the site.

Yves Saint Laurent have perfected many techniques, one being embossed sueded crocodile fabrications. I have been a long time fan of this process, as YSL has found a way to make it look luxurious and authentic, without being forced. (more…)

I’m no great fan of paying high prices for non-leather bags, but after seeing the Yves Saint Laurent Large Shopping Tote, I’m unsure how long I’ll be able to continue my resistance to the concept.

When you’re a fan of designer handbags, it’s best to come up with some personal price boundaries to avoid getting carried away. It’s easy to become desensitized when the most highly sought-after bag in the world costs in the high four figures, but not every bag is worth what the manufacturer might want us to pay. The Yves Saint Laurent Large Shopping Tote has positioned itself in an interesting spot, however – the price just might be low enough to pique my interest for such an attractive bag, even though it’s not made entirely of leather.

It is time for the 6th edition of the YSL Manifesto, which will be hitting the streets of NYC today! The worldwide release will be Saturday, February 20th, in the streets of Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and for the first time, Berlin.

This Manifesto was photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin under the creative direction of Stefano Pilati. The manifesto will showcase Natalia Vodianova in the Yves Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2010 collection. (more…)

Ladies and gents, I need you to weigh in here. I cannot decide whether or not this Yves Saint Laurent handbag is genius or simply not enough for what you are paying for.

Yves Saint Laurent is one of those brands, one of those brands that is almost always worth a second look. This is the case because the first look might take you in the wrong direction, but the second look, the second look could reveal sheer genius. While I want that to be the case here, I just don’t think that is the case. (more…)

The biggest release from YSL in the past few years was the Roady, which launched last September. The Roady is an utterly simple design that brings in an added touch which bumps up the aesthetic. I know many of you did not like just how simple the original Roady was, so this post will bring you nothing more than the first. But if you loved the Roady and you love having a spring bag in your collection, the Yves Saint Laurent Linen Roady may be for you. (more…)

Ahh, the eternal handbag questions: how much should we, as consumers, be willing to pay for bags that aren’t made out of leather? How about one made out of canvas? How about a really SIMPLE bag made out of canvas? Should it vary by brand? If it does, does that mean we’ve all fallen victim to someone’s marketing scheme? For me, the Yves Saint Laurent Safety Pins Tote brings up all of those questions and more.

For what it is, I quite like this bag. But is the bag that it is worthy of the price that Yves Saint Laurent is asking? I suppose that depends on who you are and how much extra money is sitting in your bank account. (more…)

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 logo thing that YSL insists on doing. I don’t like it and no one shall convince me otherwise. Probably because it reminds me of something… (more…)

Custom YSL Roady

The YSL Roady was one of the most coveted bags of the season alongside the Alexander Wang Coco Duffel among others. Yves Saint Laurent added the Roady to their group of bags and this simple hobo became an instant hit.

Celebrities and handbags lovers alike began sporting this bag. Now YSL has an opportunity for all of you who love the Roady but did not purchase your own yet. In both NYC and LA customers will be able to customize their YSL Roady from now through December 1st, 2009.

Before I say anything, I have to comment on how quickly this year has flown by. I cannot believe it is already November! However, the last few months of the year brings some of my favorite events, holidays and activities. Another one of my favorite things is that with all of the Holiday parties and gatherings I feel as though I have an excuse to beef up my evening bag collection and this makes me happy. So, it should be no surprise that I’ve been spending quite a bit of time trying to figure out which bags I should buy; I can always figure out my outfit afterwords. (more…)

YSL vs Hobo International

With so many handbags on the market, there are always options that can give you a look you love for less. Let’s face it, we don’t all have endless handbag budgets all the time. We have already given you a studded clutch option for less and a Chanel option for less. Now it is time to give you a Leather Hobo Look for Less. (more…)
