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.

Yves Saint Laurent Y-Bow Suede Bowler

Having said all of that, I can’t decide for the life of me what I think about the Yves Saint Laurent Y-Bow Suefe Bowler. I’m in a Yves Saint Laurent mood lately, partly because I like the way that they unconventionally combine materials and textures in some of their recent bags. I like that they stamped suede to look like lizard skin here, it’s a technique that most designers wouldn’t use in this combination. I also think that I might like the little bow ends coming out of each side, but I’m not sure. It might not work, and I have no idea how to decide if it does or not. As with the texture, I like that it’s unexpected, but instead of doing something interesting with the bag’s form or structure, it’s just a stuck-on decoration to a basic satchel. But maybe I’m okay with that – I just can’t decide. Buy through Neiman Marcus for $1695.

    This bag, in this leather and maybe only in this color makes it okay for me. But then again, all my bags ( except one) are from YSL.

  • denim53

    I approve.

  • mmbags

    I am also undecided about this bag. Maybe if we see some action pics of it but for now I can’t picture myself carrying it.

  • renee

    It kind of looks like it might puff up those flaps and hiss at you.

  • opilier

    This bag is soo cool!! I absolutly love that the bag is really versistile. I was looking at bags online and found this other blog that talks about bags that would totally fit young girls style and they are eco-friendly too! check it out at I WANT THIS BAG!!!

    I like the bow, I like the shape, I just don’t like them together. It’s like pineapple pizza.

  • Rebecca

  • Space

    I love it! I was starting to consider getting a Muse, but IDK, this may have to come first!

    I just saw this bag at saks today but in a cream/beige color. It’s really a cute bag but I don’t know if I’d spent 1700 on it. I do LOVE the pleating and bow like features though!
