At first glance I really liked this distressed metallic bag. I love Donna Karan and it has really pained me (really!) to rag on her bags. So this bag popped out and I was like, “okay, I can get on this, I can give this a glowing review and then she’ll grant us an interview and we’ll be BFFs forever and ever and ever”. But then I noticed the price; hello- YSL could have gotten away with charging $1,695 for a trendy hobo but they wouldn’t have done so– they would have charged $1,150. But Donna, she who has not even made a dent in the handbag world, she wants $1,695 for a bag that looks like it’s been dragged through the gutter? Granted the distressed look is very of the moment and that crystal key chain is really cool but seriously? Who’d spend this kind of money on a not so memorable bag? That said, it’s a fairly cute bag and if you’ve got the dough to blow– go for it. Oh, and I just want it on record that I adore Donna Karan clothes– I bought a navy jacket with gold and pearl buttons, white collar and matching white pleated skirt to the very first business meeting I’d ever had after graduation when I was 22 years old because Donna Karan was my yardstick for chic back then. That jacket cost a fortune and I still have it for sentimental reasons. Which is more than I can say for this bag– unfortunately this is the type of bag I’d carry for a month and then give to the resale shop. $1,695 at Net a Porter
But enough about me, what do you guys think? Snob or Slob?
