Yves Saint Laurent 'Muse - Large' Leather Dome Satchel
Love this bag
I got this bag as a gift and absolutely love it. Very roomy and so classic looking. It is a very beautiful bag and very high quality.
Roomy but chic
I bought this bag on a whim, after I purchased one as a gift for my mom. I bought this bag in a beautiful dark gray, whereas I bought my mom the black pictured here.
For a large bag, it's surprisingly lightweight. But I stress that it's also very sturdy and durable (so far). I took this bag on a recent trip to FL - this bag withstood the humidity and the indignity of being crammed beneath an airplane seat.
It's also incredibly roomy; on my trip to FL, I stuffed this bag with snacks, magazines, a small umbrella, my large Kate Spade wallet, a Blackberry, a small iPod and a large sunglass case (among other things). I worried that the straps wouldn't hold with all this added weight, but neither the bag nor the straps wore out. (Though mind, I've only had the bag for a couple of weeks.)
My only nitpick is that the bag lost its shape a little at the corners. I'm not upset with this, though, as the bag still is beautiful. I feel that it's a timeless classic.
I carry this bag every day now; I wear it to work and out and about on errands or meeting with friends. I feel that this bag can be dressed up or down (a huge plus for me). I feel that the bag is youthful, but not overly so. (Though I suppose, for some women, the style of this bag may be too youthful. My mom felt it was too young for her sensibility, though she's a youthful-looking woman at 57. She decided to go with a different bag.)
I've received a lot of compliments with this bag. I'm so happy with my purchase!
