it's all in the details...

sad day...After showing Jon my "incredible find" last night, he was skeptical (as was I at first but too star struck to give in). We then proceeded to find out that the bag on Bag Addiction was not the original YSL Downtown bag but, sigh, a knock-off. I knew it had to be too good to be true. Comparing them side by side you can see that the hardware is different, the handle much longer, the patent sheen too shiny and the overall bag too short. So sad...and I was so excited. The knock-off is still cute, but I'd rather have an original from an independent designer for the same price, or go to China Town and get an even lower priced knock-off for around $20-$40. (insert sad tear here).
