Celebrity Style: Kim Kardashian and the YSL Muse Two Satchel

While I love all things YSL, I can't say I'm a fan of the Muse Two Satchel. This photo of Kim Kardashian with her black patent leather version of the Muse Two perfectly illustrates why design is of utmost importance when selecting a handbag. The classic shape of the Muse Two is appealing, but the top handle's placement was not properly thought out. The result is a slouchy, puckered look which was, I guarantee, not the intended effect. I expect much more from a $2000 bag. This might not seem important to most of you out there, but for sticklers for detail like me it's a major pet peeve. If you're interested in achieving the same look with well-placed handles and in a very flattering color to boot, be sure to look into the Mulberry Bayswater Bag. It's just as chic and a $1000 less than the Muse Two.
