My Accessories Opium for Fall ‘09

One of my favorite items  for the Fall 2009 season is the YSL easy handbag in a printed lizard gray suede. This bag is soft, subtle (read: no screaming logos) and goes with almost everything in my closet. It also has just enough strap to be worn on the shoulder when necessary. I found mine at Elyse Walker in the Pacific Palisades. Elyse also has the teal suede and black patent versions of this classic wardrobe enhancer, but she and I agreed that the gray suede was just my speed.

Just a few weeks after I purchased it,  I happened to be perusing a few images from the YSL collection and came across my easy bag in the most brilliant shade of red patent leather. And they had to call it Opium! A stunning, knock-em-dead red called Opium.  Oh mon dieu, I’m hooked.

I’m definitely one who believes in moderation, but I have been known to purchase multiples of things that I love – especially if there is a chance I won’t be able to get them again next season. And it is the most remarkable shade of brilliant red. I can think of a million and one ways to wear it; but for now I will continue to admire it from afar. Christmas is just around the corner, after all.
