To know me is to know I love a good handbag. It’s no secret I feel if you are going to splurge anywhere it should be on your bags (and shoes). Yves Saint Laurent makes some of my favorite handbags and compared to the prices of many of the current selection of designer bags, I think they give you the most bang for your buck comparatively. I thought I had plenty YSL bags (four), but then I saw this Yves Saint Laurent Cabas ChYc Tote. Actually at first I didn’t think too much of it until I recently saw someone carrying it. It looks much better on the shoulder than it does in a picture. As much as I love the Celine Luggage Tote and similar short-handled bags, I know myself well enough to know I really need a bag I can sling over my shoulder as well as my wrist. Therefore this bag has been added to my short list of must-have bags. I’m just not sure what color I want. I’ll try not to go the expected black route.
