Yves Saint Laurent Y ToteI really hate to admit that Heidi Montag inspired me to do or say or think ANYTHING, but in this case of the Yves Saint Laurent Y Tote, I have to admit, she did. I wrote about her carrying this particular bag a few days ago on Bag That Style, and ever since I saw it, I’ve been intrigued.

Megs, who identified the bag from Heidi’s pictures, was told by the ladies in the YSL forum that the bag was from last year and no longer available, but I love nothing more than a challenge. So I was delighted to find the black version on Bluefly today and thought that since I hadn’t seen the bag before, maybe you guys hadn’t either. And really, it’s worth seeing – the leather used is so drool-worthy that it almost makes me want to try and pet it through my computer screen.

Heidi apparently uses hers for traveling, and although I can’t support any other life decision that she’s ever made, I think this would make a great carry-on. It’s roomy and has two different handle options, depending on what else you’re carrying. I’d have to see it in person to decide if the leather is durable enough, but Heidi’s light-colored iteration looked pretty perfect after her flight back from Mexico. Buy through Bluefly for $1596.

I think I’ve now just about seen it all. Heidi Montag was recently photographed with a new huge Chanel shopping bag, which really comes as no surprise or shock. What did and continues to shock me – her fresh Chanel manicure. Why? Why? Why? Sure, I took a few marketing classes during my college years, and I totally get brand marketing and brand loyalty, but don’t you think this takes it just a step too far? If you are anything like me, one of your guilty pleasures might be following celeb gossip and the reality shows some of them may appeared on. And most of us, whether we admit it or not, have seen The Hills and are of course familiar with Heidi and Spencer.

Just after their alleged marriage, Heidi and Spencer are continuously photographed in a way that makes any reader think they are looking to make a buck. Hey, if you are able to put up with the paparazzi mob following you around and snapping flattering/not so flattering/embarrassing pictures of you with every move you make, well, then, more power to you. However, I am starting to wonder if this is going a tad too far. Heidi, we know you have loads of money to spend. But a Chanel manicure, is that really necessary? Although I imagine the folks over at Chanel shaking their heads in disbelief, I have a question. Do you think this kind of situation helps or hurts the oh so classic and lusted after brand? Discuss!
