Medium patent Tribute tote

  1. Hi everyone!

    I purchased my first YSL today...the medium patent Tribute tote in black.

    I'm a little undecided about it, so I wanted to know what you guys thought about it. I thought that the tote had more width or depth to it, but it's relatively flat. And, the patent leather is kind of stiff.

    My camera is out of batteries, so I can't post my own pictures right now.
  2. Hi SuLi! To be perfectly honest, it is not my favorite YSL bag. I prefer the Muse, Rive Gauche, or Downtown. The price is great, however. I think its about $865, right? It's just a bit plain for me. But hey, that's just my opinion. It's what you think that counts. And perhaps it is more attractive IRL. If you are looking for a simple tote, this fits the bill.

    Fyi, the bag was featured in the February issue of Vogue; I started a thread about it a while back...

  3. ^ Agree with Cosmo. I prefer Muse.
  4. Thanks for the input. I keep looking at the Muse bags every time I'm in a store that has them, and they still don't do anything for me for some reason.

    The Tribute tote is priced really well - the medium is at $795 and the larger one at $865. I think they are also doing non-patent leather versions.

    I bought the tote from the Cusp store in Georgetown (opening weekend) and since I made a donation to the Youth AIDS foundation, I got 10% off the tote. Again, I'm still really undecided. I think I'm going to give myself a few more days to mull it over.

    Thanks again!
  5. I like Muse , but this one looks nice too tbh.
    Give yourself time to think about it :smile:
  6. I think if I were to get it....I would get the large size.....good luck deciding what to do...
  7. I like this bag a lot--but I prefer the large size. I think it's a very chic bag. I've REALLY tried to like the Muse, but it's just a little too bulky for me. Anyways, I'm a huge fan of the Mombasa and really like how the Tribute has a slim profile like the Mombasa.
  8. Suli, I love your bag! I also love the patent leather! Congratulations!

    But you do have to feel comfortable with your bag, so let us know what you decide!
  9. usually when I am having doubts about a purchase...I return it...
  10. love it!
    congrats !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. I just noticed on the Bergdorf website that the Tribute tote comes in leopard print hair-calf, for all you animal-print lovers out there. :rochard: But it's already on back order!

  12. I just ordered the large Tribute in white (or maybe they call it ivory) patent.

    I'm new to YSL, but the shape and the white patent really appeals to me. I'm having it sent next day from Bergdorf's, but since this is a weekend they probably won't ship it out until Monday.
  13. See what you think when you get it :smile:
    sometimes photos just don't do a bag justice.
  14. I got it today and it is love at first sight!!! I can't wait for her debut tomorrow!!
  15. ^Pics please!
