Hmm. . . I don't think it's too special. I really loved his embroidered and feathered wrist bags he did for a few seasons. IMO, those were much better.

The picture is too blurry--I can't make out what is on it. Is it appliqued, or are those tacked-on self-fabric flowers? Or is it embroidery?

I think that it is pretty, but not worth that kind of money when you could get a very similar item from a vintage shop or make it yourself. My mother-in-law has a very similar beaded bag she found in an antiques shop for $25. Something to think about.

Thanks everyone! Thoughts on this? YSL walldorf floral case $2295,Why the price is so high is because:
  • The handles are bleached and polished deer horn
  • The crystals are hand set into a floral pattern
  • The hardware is dipped in 18K gold
  • The case itself is laquered persplex

I really LOVE both of them. But I would never buy them. So much money for a purse that will never see all that much wear. Seriously how many times would you have to carry that tiny little purse to justify the cost?

Birkin, I can understand to an extent. You could use it your entire life without it going out of style.

But that little purse...


I'd be carrying it to my funeral

I like the YSL bag a lot. Much more than the Valentino.

YSL is too hot. Tom did love his perspex so.

The YSL is absolutely glorious. You really love metallic bottle green and apple-blossom pink, don't you? I've noticed a lot of the evening bags you've posted that you like have one, if not both, of those colors.
