I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m craving winter so badly. Yesterday I wore jeggings (don’t judge me) to the mall in silent protest of the 95-degree temperatures we’ve been having since…May. It’s been a long summer.

I live in Atlanta, so I have about six more weeks of genuinely warm weather before I even get to think about breaking out any kind of long-sleeve options for daytime wear (and even then, that’s only if I’m lucky), but the sight of the Yves Saint Laurent Studded Suede Roady has me wanting winter even more.

Something about the combination of rich suede and the way that the studding is organized in a triangle pattern just screams “cold weather” to me. Perhaps it’s because the triangles are a bit reminiscent of the patterns on traditional sweaters, but whatever the reason, I imagine this bag being worn with a fluffy scarf and knit hat at all times. What I wouldn’t give to be in need of those items (and this bag, of course) right now…Buy through Saks for $2295.

    Love the suede! Feeling the same way here in Wisconsin! Our winters are so long so we shouldn’t want summer to end but when you see these amazing fall pieces you can’t help but crave the cold!

    The bag is quite pretty, and I am also craving winter; when it will cool down from around 90 degrees here, in L.A., to around 75 degrees!

    One of the best YSL bags I’ve seen!!! I really like both sued and studs, so I love when they’re combined! It really does make me think of winter time.

    this looks more sumptuous than the ysl bags i saw in person last week. i had been coveting an easy or a roady a long time, but after i felt the leather of the bag i was disappointed and turned off. which totally sucks because i dies for the ysl design. :(

    I love this bag waaaay better than the plain Roady. I just didn’t get why everyone loved it so much. This is when I realized that I like my bags to be a little jazzy. Probably because my own style is classic American so I like to wear jazzed up accessories.

    I *love* this bag. I *want* this bag.

    I can’t afford this bag :(

  • gpc

    I don’t know which one I like more — this one or the leopard Roady. BUT, $2000+ for the trendiness (studding vs. leopard) is kind of hard to swallow…

    I am more than ready for cold weather. It was between ninety-five and ninety-nine degrees today and I want it to be chilly, so that I need long sleeves, scarves, hats, boots, all of my favorite fashion.

  • Cathy

    Love this! Cute and so classy!

  • CarolineLondon

    i never looked at Roady before because i see it as just-another-bag-design.

    I don’t really care for the studs, but it grows on me. (ipad)
