I walked into the YSL boutique on 57th Street in New York on the Friday before Christmas and they had just marked down the sale bags to 60 percent off. So I picked up this pretty large Tribute tote in plum for only $479 (originally $1195). I wasnt considering buying a Tribute previously, but at that price, I couldnt pass it up. The color is a dark, rich, eggplant-y purplenot bright Barney purple at all. It goes great with my purple Burberry scarf. Here are my two other YSL bags: a black patent Downtown and a chocolate Muse.
