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.

  4. At least you saw it in person so you knew and didn't spend time dreaming about it, you know? So you saved $1600!

  7. I wouldn't have opted for that bag, either, after hearing what you have to say about it. It sounds like you made a good decision. I'm sorry you were disappointed, but I guess you can just save your money for something better.

  8. It's lovely (based on this picture), but wow... such a small bag for such a big ticket.

  9. Like the shape but I will be afraid that that bag will scratch my guy's arm!

  10. I just love this so much ...all the zipper detail I'm seeing lately reminds me of a couple of season's {ago} Project Runway guy ...was he the winner? I can't remember.
