You’ve probably already heard that YSL’s Roady Tote is the newest “it” bag and that this slouchy piece of perfection already has a waiting list many miles long. But did you know that YSL is allowing shoppers to customize the super-chic design to their personal liking? From November 19 through December 1st, choose from 29 different handles (in various colors and skins) and even opt to get your bag monogrammed. It’s sort of like one of those choose your own adventure books, only cooler, because you end up with a unique designer handbag – and possibly an overdrawn checking account.
Let’s face it though, while it’s fun to dream, most us can’t afford YSL’s Roady Tote – luckily, there are some very respectable look-a-likes out there. We like Juicy’s boho-inspired design and Old Navy’s faux-leather hobo in an oh-so-YSL shape. Need more options? Peruse our picks for the best in designer handbags, grocery totes, and carry on bags.
