Yves Saint Laurent vs. Liz Claiborne - Battle of the Patent Totes
Patent totes are going to be big this year… or so I have heard, anyway. Above we have two great totes. On the left, we have the Yves Saint Laurent Medium Downtown Tote in Bouganvill. On the right, we have the Liz Claiborne Bloomfield Patent Tote in Black. These two bags are very similar in size, style, and appearance. In fact, the Liz Claiborne design seems to be mimicking the Yves Saint Laurent one. Coincidence? Probably not. What I like best about these totes is large size. Yes, they are both very roomy on the inside - perfect for work or school! So, depending on your budget…
