Jimmy Choo Malena or YSL Rive Gauche

  1. Hi all -

    I'm new to TPF and am looking for opinions as to which bag I should purchase. I want a brown every day bag and am considering the JC Malena or YSL Rive Gauche. Anyone have either of these and what are your opinions? Heavy, too big, too small...etc. Just to let you know I'm looking for something that is somewhat classic and won't go out of style, therefore I'm leaning towards the Rive Gauche...however, I'm really lusting over the JC Malena. Need help because I can't buy them both.

  3. Personally I would go for the Malena Satchel. It's detailed and funky. In my personal opinion the Rive Gauche bag looks somewhat like a messenger bag when it's being worn. It's quite flat, also, with very little addition to the fabric: no pattern, no studs or patchwork, nothing. The malena is a little pricier, but I mean just a little more than the Rive Gauche. I think the extra hundred dollars is definitely worth it for those extra little details you get with it. Happy shopping!
