Thanks to yslalice's post about the sale items at the Houston store and her recommendation to ask for Michael, I picked up this beautiful bag which JUST arrived today! LOVE the color. It's a bit difficult to capture the true shade of the violet, but I do think it's probably more like the muted shades in these photos. AND I never noticed this before, by my Downtown has "YSL" embossed on the bottom! Anyways, I LOVE the bag and am so thrilled with the purchase!
