YSL Zipper Edge Ruffle Clutch
When SG first posted about this YSL ruffle clutch, I was so excited I ran to the store to put my name on the list. I waited with great hope this would be my favorite clutch for the season and after I got the call, I again ran to the store and this bag literally stopped me on my track. Savvy gals, SG was so disappointed my smile froze.
First of all, it's really small, only about 6" x 4", which is only as long as my palm and little wider than the width of my palm. I should have known looking at the size of the closure. It's too casual for a formal event but too small for a day/night more casual functions. Secondly, my SA shows me a beige color clutch and it looks dirty already. The metal frame and closure look tarnish and dirty. I want to wipe it down with brass cleaner. Maybe it's the vintage look but SG would not spend $1595 on an old looking bag. Lastly, maybe it's just me but I am disappointed at the quality of workmanship, just not impressive to me.
So savvy gals, SG will look forward to other savvy YSL bags leaving this one where it belongs, in the store. I understand this clutch is supposed to be modern and edgy but not for me this time around.
