Sometime we forget the luxury of a well made timeless, simple classic from a designer we know and trust. We are always looking for new designers but the tried and true will always hold that special place in our hearts and that is why this bag makes me feel so good. This is your classic tote that will stay with you for years and as a summer piece will carry you through thick and thin. We love the Y collection especially the ingenious reversible tote (I love it in purple - a must have!!) because the "Y" is brilliantly incorporated in the design as a nice detail rather than an obnoxious billboard. There are so many fine structural details on this bag that may be overlooked, like the way the gusset comes together, the way the corners are darted and sewn perfectly neatly, that makes this bag an obvious luxury item. I am obviously trying to convince myself that this is a great addition to my collection and being that it is available at Bluefly for only $956 makes it that much harder to pass up. I mean, it was originally $1195 and it's still early in the season so I will still get a lot of use out of it. This is when I call Tina and she talks me out of it because she will say that canvas is not worth it. Decisions, decisions!
