YSL Cabas Chyc Bag – Outfit of the Day

Thursday, 19th Jul 2012
Woooo!! Exciting!! Say hello to my new baby – the YSL Medium Cabas Chyc Bag in dark magenta textured leather, that I impulsively bought at Harrods last Saturday!! I love her!!

I didn’t plan this purchase in the slightest so I have a fair measure out guilt thrown in, but taking her out yesterday has definitely made me feel a lot better!! I am particularly pleased with the colour which is different, but still as classic as black.
What happened was...

I finally got the call to pick up my beloved, 9 year awaited Chanel bag, who had been in Paris for three months recovering from a hardware dislocation. I was so thrilled to be re-united with baby Chanel that I got all over-excited!

The problem with getting over-excited in Harrods is that it makes me want to get out the good old credit card! And so that was exactly what I did!

I am completely obsessed with YSL. I have been wearing their makeup for 20 years (don’t flinch!) but I have never owned anything non-beauty related. So this is another major milestone in my ‘beautiful things-obsessed’ life and strangely Harrods always seem to be involved! I think it’s fate!
Much to my delight, Harrods tweeted me after I bought it and asked to see a picture. Of course I obliged!

I’ll put the bag down quickly to tell you about the rest of the outfit. The jacket and tee are from ASOS, the jeans are years old, from BDG at Urban Outfitters and the sandals are from Zara (also very old).
The arm candy is a mix of Miss Selfridge and Swarovski. My nails on hands and feet have Essie’s Orange It’s Obvious, done beautifully at the Hand and Foot Spa in Chelsea (more to come on that soon).
The lipstick is a gorgeous new one I have from Daniel Sandler – it’s the Lipshine SPF15 in Tangerine. It is absolutely perfect for summer!
I didn’t do my hair. Who needs to when you have a great bag and a great lippie?!
So…what do you think?
