glad you did something in honor...
I have only one token of this man's incredible work: an yves saint laurent high-waisted skirt that I found at a consignment store. While it's not a pant-suit, I can still look at it and think about the social movements that fashion can embody. He did after all call himself an "advocate for women." (And I def feel fierce in that skirt)

you found YSL at a consignment shop?? lucky! the one and only YSL i've ever owned is a suede "post-it" bag that came out a few years ago. it's the most i've ever plunked down on a bag and it's something i'll treasure always.

I did. It was amazing. I found it and literally turned into one of those crazy paranoid shoppers who think that someone's going to try and snatch their find. $75, too. (it's the skirt in the pictures of my Twinkle cropped top)...it's too tight, but who needs to breath when you're wearing YSL.

Couture...toujours couture!
Vive Saint Laurent!

Congratulations Kate on being so thoughtful and honoring YSL. A very touching sight that red heart of yours. Besides being a fantastic designer he was a man of great culture and also a very charming gentleman. Truly a great loss. The only YSL I´m lucky to possess, a few bottles of perfume that cost about as much as Monica´s skirt -- that lucky girl ! Send the address of that store, will you Monica ?
