YSL Downtown Bag

Until recently I did not care much for the YSL Downtown bag. On a recently visit with gal pal, I fell in love with the Downtown after gal pal let me use it for one day. The weight is definitely manageable and so savvy chic with just the right amount of casual slouch and plenty of room to carry a gal's daily necessities. So imagine my delight when I saw these at Bluefly for an additional 15% off many selections of handbags today only. To receive the additional 15% off the handbag sale, a gal must click through the e-mail invite so let me know if you want this invite. Just e-mail me and I will forward the invite.The black patent Downtown bag retails for $1895 less 20% on Bluefly for $1516 and an additional 15% off today for $1289. I am almost ready to hit order.I am struggling between a shiny black croc print patent and the suede tan croc print nubuck. Bluefly is selling the tan color for $1596 less 15% today for 1357. The only reservation about the large Downtown is the size which is 19.5" x 13.75" x 9.5" which I think is a bit large for me since I am 5'4" and a size 0. Perhaps the medium size at 14" wide will be more suitable. I don't want to appear as if the bag is wearing me! Is the Downtown bag savvy for you as it is for me?

  6. Dayum! Those are too rich for my pockets, but if money was no object I'd go for the black. Tan is for grandmothers.

  9. I can't tell if I like this bag or not. I think I might in person. Black patent would be the most useful, probably. Patent holds up so well.

  12. I really like the Downtown bag. I think any colour you choose is ok. If I could afford it I´d buy the Lady Dior bag. I adore it!

  16. Wow, take it in medium,. you lucky woman. Both are great; I'd tend to balck simply b/c would stay new-looking longer and shine takes it into evening as well as day. But it's your call!
