hello YSL ladies!
this is my first time posting here... and what a good first post to introduce my newest baby... YSL Neo reversible tote in brown and green!

.. i like it, but i don't know if LOVE it..

I've always wanted a bag that the same size & style as the LV neverfull or Goyard St. Louis, but i refuse to buy it.. because i find it too expensive for a canvass bag..

When i saw these, i was very excited and purchased them even without seeing it in person!..

The bag can be slouchy if it's not filled.. but once i had all my stuff in, it actually stands, because it has 5 studs/feet on the bottom..

Thoughts? Comments?

it is a very chic bag, especially in a colour combo you have....I am also not in love with this particular style, but it looks cool when I look at you in your photos. I have a test for myself when I am in doubt. I attempt to return the bag, and feel it in that moment - if I let go easily and feel a relief, that was the right decision, but I also had cases when I gave up in fear of losing it :) I almost sold my Roady, but pulled it off market as soon as I posted it, because I am actually in love with it although is rediculously large. You can test yourself the same way :)

hi vesna!
thanks for your reply!

i actually have done that same "test".. and usually, whenever i post something for sale, and then if i can't sleep at night, i pull the listing right away..

things is with this bag, i bought this online at HGbags... and while i got the bag for an amazing steal, she has a very steep return policy (15% restocking fee)...

so im not sure what to do.. the very big opening of this Neo might be a problem for me future...

i know that i like a tote bag.. and i know i want it to be leather..

wow, it is steep !

well, I would keep the bag, embelish it with a scarf tied to keep it from opening all the way all the time, and wear it proudly knowing that I have a piece of history, a Y symbol which will soon be erased from YSL iconic logo. I like having a piece of history with me, it gives even deeper meaning to something so simple and everyday thing like a bag..I love my besace because I know it was made after the bag Yves used to carry to work himself...and a Y-mail logo (although I HATE logos) gives a story to my wallet because it is a copy of YSL's handwriting from a postcard he wrote to his company. I love my YSL easy because of the same use of Y in stitching :))) soon it is going to be a rarity

I love the look of that bag, especially when it is on the brown side! I could see myself using this for my everyday work bag.

I agree with Vesna, it would cute with a scarf, especially on the black side.

Yes, Vesna's suggestion is sound and like she mentioned, that 'Y' will soon be a thing of the past. I like the combo and think it looks great on you. Also lovely that the neo is a reversible bag - two bags for the price of one

vesna, what a perfect suggestion!
i just visualized the bag with a scarf and i'm liking it!! thanks soooo much!!!

and yes, i agree with the Y being a rarity very soon... although i still can't believe they're revamping YSL to SLP!
Y is sooo much associated with brand! and i like that all the bags have Ys but not in logos like LV or Gucci..

This is my very first YSL.. definitely not my last.. i'm targetinng Easy or Muse 2 next!!
