Purse Deal: Yves Saint Laurent Purple Reversible Double Sac
This probably isn’t going to come as a shock to all of you avid Bag Bliss readers when I say that my favorite color in the whole world is vibrant purple (hot pink comes in at number two). So when I came across this gorgeous purple beauty I was star struck. Too bad I just purchased a Balenciaga City bag a couple days ago (which I am anxiously waiting for) from a tbf’er, so I’m going to have to wait a couple weeks before my next purchase. But that’s just me. If you are on the hunt for a vibrant purse to stroll down the street with this spring, then this is definitely a great pick. This is one that makes it on my top 10 list, and not just because it’s the Yves Saint Laurent 2-in-1 Reversible handbag but the color is just stunning (and yes the 2-in-1 part is a huge plus).
Two bags in one equals more bang for your buck! Which is way cool when you are planning a spring getaway and you want to save every penny you can. On side A of the bag it’s dressed in all deep purple and topped off with a stitched signature ‘Y’ overlay. Done with the purple? Then flip it. Side B of the bag is painted in ivory with purple straps and finishes with the ‘Y’ underlay. I am a huge fan of white bags. Every fashionista has to have at least one durable clean white handbag for spring. But really though, I don’t like the ivory side of the YSL double sac purse, I think that the purple straps are too distracting. If it was all ivory including the straps on the other side it would look so much better (imo).
The bag pictured above is the large sac (measures 17.5” at widest x 12” tall at center x 6” deep), but if you are not in with toting along giant bags or if you are just looking for a purse that’s smaller in size then you may be interested to know that this purple beauty is available in the small sac (measures 15” at widest x 11” tall at center x 5½” deep) as well. The best part – It’s also on sale!
