:happydance: you are one lucky girl vesna...i think you and cosmo have the largest collection of ysl bags? if not, you two must be in the top 5.

i love love love the catwalk...i so wanted one when i was at the woodbury outlet a few years back, but didnt' get it b/c i didnt have that lifestyle. but if was in the embossed patent that you got, then i would have brought it home.

and the grainy patent downtown, wow...have not seen grainy patent irl. how does it differ from regular patent?

you got some lovely bags, i'm so jealous!

thanks randr21, this catwalk would not be my style either few years ago, it is my experiment this year with patent that gave me courage to get a Downtown in patent. I was afraid of glitter and shine in anything, and still do not like it too much, but these bags are such an exception. Catwalk is not embossed patent. Embossed one is very smooth, mirror-like shiny and you can see every fingerprint on it. This one is stitched, grainy leather with patent on it, and it has matte look, not so shiny. Also, Downtown has grainy leather, not smooth like croc embossed patent YSL bags, they are all glossy, smooth. This one is just like cosmetic case, muted shine. Clutch that Cosmo has is also less shinu than Y-mail clutch. Grainy patent reflects light in all directions so it is not mirror-like glossy. That is what I tried to capture in close-up photos.

And speaking of enabling--I suddenly "need" a downtown!
Ha, there you go, you are IT :lol:

She is a stunner. The bubbling is perfect--like a great champagne!

My black Easy is still in use. I can't bare to put her away and use another bag!
