Staycation - YSL Reveal!


The silky shiny dustbag!



Inside the silky black dustbag is actually a white cloth dustbag.


Before I reveal here's the backstory.

I've been OBSESSED with this _______ since seeing it on Katy Perry during an episode of How I Met Your Mother.  She was carrying it in a bright fire engine red and then just recently I saw it on Nikita - Alex played by Lyndsey Fonseca she carried it in a gorgeous grape purple.  Well I was obsessed and all I wanted was this particular item in red or purple.  Unfortunately it was sold out EVERYWHERE!  All they had left was a yellow (not a good color on me) and a white (which I thought was just ho hum.)  I wanted a really bright eye catching _______ for spring and summer!



TADA!  YSL Bella Du Jour clutch in Large.

Does my man have good taste or WHAT?!  This is the color my awesome hubby chose for me.  Now I know he really does listen ahahaha.  I went on and on forever about how I couldn't find it in purple or red and how much I wanted it a bright pop color!



There's actually two different sizes of the same clutch - mine is considered a large and it measures 11in by 6in.  The smaller size I think is a few inches smaller both length and height wise and wears more as a wallet.

They even include a tiny square of the material in case something happens to your clutch.  Although I'm really not entirely sure how you could sew the square onto the purse without it looking like a totally horrifying patch.


This is the color with flash so if you were to wear this in the daytime it's definitely more of a bright cobalt blue.  It may not be red or purple but I think I may love this color even more! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Lisa, you have great eyes! No one mentioned the B-bag except you :P It actually belongs to my mom and I 'borrowed' it for this trip because it's a 35 Gris and better for traveling (i.e. can stuff more things in and won't get dirty easily) You should totally get one! I love the Etoupe but a black kelly is on my hit list!
