Organize in Style: Louis Vuitton Kusama Dots Infinity Agenda

So, iCal is nice. I enjoy using a cloud-controlled calendar. It's convenient and let's face it, it makes me feel "on top of things". But there is nothing that is going to take away the place of a beautiful, paper agenda.

LV Agendas

I must admit, I was particularly drawn to the yellow/black combination because I'm a diehard Pittsburgh Steelers fan (born and raised near "da Burgh"). It's not as subtle as my other accessories, but it's incredibly fun and is a great mini-agenda for the road. It's especially perfect when a larger agenda or even an iPad wont do.

This particular small agenda is in the Infinity Dots collection (also available in red/white and black/white), but recently released as well in a Monogram Town Dots pattern in red, green, and white. See below.

Do you use an agenda in addition or instead of the calendar on your phone, tablet, or computer?

Yves Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc Tote in Gray

I've been CRAZY about this bag forever! I never thought I'd have the possibility of getting one for ages, having to save up for my accessories, project after project. With my Chloe Marcie debacle still unsolved, I finally had the chance this weekend to return the bag. I decided against ordering another Chloe, since I was really worried about the hobo strap. I thought I would feel comfortable with the hobo style, but in all reality, I wasn't. So why get something that I will be afraid of using? The Chloe was a graduation gift from my parents, and I was reluctant to return it but since it was marred by defects there really wasn't another choice. I decided to make a switch!

Cabas Chyc

After exchanging the bag, I walked away with the medium YSL Cabas Chyc tote in gray! The store's stock had been quickly depleted and the YSL Cabas was the last medium in the store; I was told they weren't going to replenish anytime soon. I was on the fence about returning the Chloe for a Proenza Schouler, but for such a trendy, casual bag, I didn't think it was worth it. The Cabas is definitely an iconic tote that will be timeless. The Proenza overall was too casual for me, and I haven't heard good things about bag integrity--a MUST for me after this poor Chloe experience.

I had always considered a large in the Cabas, but it is a little too large for me, despite my love for big bags. The medium is the perfect size for a chic tote. Maybe it's not the bag to tote around my work and school materials, but there are other bags in my collection suitable for that task. A bag for every occasion, right?

This graduation gift disaster made a 180-turn into a beautiful, new piece in my collection--of a bag I lusted after, no doubt. Do you have any bad-bag to good-bag stories?
