Yves Saint Laurent Volcano Tote
YSL bags are able to please my every want a need. Just when I needed a pick-me-up, a beautiful glimmer caught my eye in Saks. I was wandering the store aimlessly, looking for a white summery dress (I did this after Labor Day, GASP!). The dress hunt left me empty handed, but when I turned the corner I found the most stunning YSL handbag. Nothing super amazing, but something eye catching and perfect to pair with a little black dress.
The Yves Saint Laurent Volcano Tote is my obsession of the week with its crackled gold leather that catches light at all angles on the simplistic body. The signature “Y” stitch accents the bag perfectly, adding a logo without being logofied, which is what many of us strive for. Because let’s face it, as much as many of us do not want an all-over logo, we do want the bag to be recognizable at times, and many of our bags are recognizable. The color is called Bronzo, and it is all kinds of perfect. In the stock picture online it looks good, but in person (and shown with the model) it is a deeper hue of metallic perfection! There are double handles with a small 5.5″ drop, a zip top closure, one inside and cell phone pocket, and canvas lining. That is the only thing I am left yearning for more; the lining. Why not finish it up with deep brown buttery soft suede? Ah well. Buy through Saks for $1,395.
Oh and there is a simple black leather version, which does not come close to intriguing me as much as the beautiful bronzo version. But for a small black bag, I still give it the go ahead. At Saks for $1,195.
