Ladies and gents, I need you to weigh in here. I cannot decide whether or not this Yves Saint Laurent handbag is genius or simply not enough for what you are paying for.
Ok so I truly don’t understand who has not seen photos of the YSL Cassandre Tassel Chain bag drifting around on social media by now, and totally fallen in love with the bag. Personally, I have had this bag on my mind for about a year and a half but never actually got around to taking the initiative to buy it before the conclusion of the very summer which just slipped from us. I adore the va-va-voom style of this bag. Personally, I believe the YSL Cassandre is a purse you take if you want to be noticed, not if you want to combine in. I have observed a couple individuals take the bag in individual and it just has this magnetic pull (for me at least) which generally leaves me wanting the bag that second at any cost. As you all read in my previous review regarding the Chloe Hudson tote (click here to read it if you haven’t!) Both bags are basically perfectly crafted and as an experienced replica shopper (I suppose I can call myself that … I have been doing this for over 7 years :-P) I’m finding it hard to discover any flaws with them. Of course there’s things such as date codes, however I’m not trying to resell the bags just as originals (that is completely unethical in my view) so I could really care less.
Yves Saint Laurent is one of those brands, one of those brands that is almost always worth a second look. This is the case because the first look might take you in the wrong direction, but the second look, the second look could reveal sheer genius. While I want that to be the case here, I just don’t think that is the case.
The thing about the Yves Saint Laurent Yes Large Leather Bag is that it actually is a bit of genius. It is the kind of day-to-day genius that so many bags lack sometimes. This bag is slouchy, yet structured. The colors are neutral, yet versatile. But, is it worth the price? I love handbags, I really do. And I have no problem spending big bucks on a bag I love, but is this bag worth it’s price tag?
The olive-green leather tote has a contrast pale-green leather trim and two pale green handles. You might not be able to tell, but if you press the studs at the side, you can actually adjust the size of the handles – always a nice, understated detail. Clearly the bag is functional, and it is also fashionable, but I am stuck on the price. I can see tons of women carrying this bag and loving it – loving it for seasons to come, but I have some reservations. What do you think? Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1525.
