Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Cassandre Tassel Chain Bag Replica Review


Ok so I really don’t know who hasn’t seen photos of the YSL Cassandre Tassel Chain bag floating around on social media by now, and totally fallen in love with the bag. I personally have had this bag on my mind for about a year and a half but never really got around to taking the initiative to purchase it until the end of this very summer that just slipped by us. I LOVE the va-va-voom style of the bag. I personally think the YSL Cassandre is a bag you carry when you want to stand out, not when you want to blend in. I have seen a couple of people carry the bag in person and it just has this magnetic pull (for me at least) which usually leaves me wanting the bag that second at any cost. As you all read in my previous review about the Chloe Hudson bag (click here to read it if you haven’t!) I had a mini haul from Designer Discreet this summer I never got around to properly reviewing for you all, but I finally found some spare time to put it up!

This Yves Saint Laurent bag is a superb replica – I mean I could go on talking about it but I really feel like for both the YSL and Chloe bag the photos speak best for themselves. Both bags are basically perfectly crafted and as an experienced replica shopper (I guess I can call myself that … I have been doing this for over 7 years :-P) I really am finding it hard to find any flaws with them. Of course there’s things like date codes, but I’m not trying to resell the bags as originals (which is completely unethical in my opinion) so I could really care less.

A lot of YSL chain bags I see are in a soft calfskin leather but I decided to opt for something a little more glamorous which was the coated leather. I love the coated leather because I find it harder to scratch or dent than smooth calfskin, and we all know that on a night out having to worry about keeping your bag pristine is not ideal. I went for black – not surprising to any reader who understand my favorite color palette a.k.a neutrals. Overall I am very pleased with the bag and love the contrast between the black and gold hardware. I’ve posted many photos of the bag to follow which you can take a glimpse at, and let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. Hey doll, I am considering purchasing a ysl bag online, could you help me with whether you believe it’s authenticity? Is there an email address I could send pics to?

    Thank you so much in advance,


  2. I just stumbled onto your blog and I love it! I recently purchased this same YSL Tassel Chain replica bag. It is absolutely beautiful! I needed a “Wow” bag for an upcoming trip that has a lot of formal evening events. I’m 5’4″ rounded up lol and this bag hangs way too low on my frame. Please excuse me if you have already addressed this issue on your blog. What do you recommend when a Chain bag is too long? I’ve seen posts where people knot the chain on the inside but won’t that look tacky if I open my purse in front of someone? Any advice would be appreciated.

  3. Hi ,
    I was wondering do you happen to know the site address? I was looking for dd online but I can’t find the actual site. I love this bag!

  4. Hi the more I look at this bag the more I’m in love with it. Can you tell me how it’s holding up for you please. Is the leather durable or does it get scratched easily? Help please I need some guidance as I am ready to purchase this bag or the croc embossed with silver hardware. Thanks!

    • It’s holding up well – as good as the day I got it. The leather is coated so it is really hard to ruin – I’d say the calfskin is much more scratch-able but it’s more everyday appropriate so each have their pros/cons 🙂

  5. Hi I just found your blog and was wondering if this would be considered an everyday bag? I am trying to decide between this bag and the croc embossed silver hardware ? I also thought of the college but really love the tassels. Please let me know what you think.

    • Hey hun the bag is adorable but I would not suggest it as an everyday bag. It is too small and it is more of a going out on a special occasion or traveling super light bag. I guess if you go with one of the more matte colors it could work as an everyday bag as long as once again you are traveling light since it doesn’t hurt much!

  6. Hi I just ordered from Designer Discreet and I’m very nervous. When should I expect my bag to arrive if I’m in the U.S?

  7. They look so good! I just checked out DD but I couldn’t find a link. Could you please give me the link to the product?!

    Anyway, I have been reading your blog for awhile and I really love it! Keep up the good work!

  8. designerdiscreet.cn is the site where you buy the handbag?because I see here dd site and I’m not sure which is the site.This site its sure ?I don’t want to spend money for nothing….
    Please answer me😊

  9. They look amazing!!! I really want to shop Dd. But I’m so nervous and scared about being scam. How long have you been shopping with DD ? And are you sponsored by them ?

    • Hey hun I’ve been shopping with them for about 3-4 years I think. They claim to be around since the early 2000s. I’m not sponsored by them – if I was I would be writing posts about DD everyday in order to get free bags (lol :P) but I actually buy from them usually 1-2 times a year and do a large order of a couple of purses each time in order to qualify for their wallet deals. They did give me a free wallet once for emailing a review about them but I’ve never told them (or any other company I shop at) I run a blog b/c I’m sharing the reviews with the public so I don’t want to get the good bags, and then have everyone try out sites I review and get a piece of junk! I’m very fond of DD b/c I’ve grown a little lazy in shopping around (I used to do that A LOT when I first started to shop for replicas) and like to stick with what’s works/is good… Good luck if you decide to shop with them! 🙂
