Those amazing, slouchy Yves Saint Laurent Roady bags that dwarf every starlet whose arm is appears on? Starting November 19, you'll be able to get your own customized version. Just in time for the holidays, the Rodeo Drive boutique will have someone on hand to outfit your bag with special skin handles—start by picking a bag, color and finish, then pick a handle made from ostrich, crocodile or lizard. It's like the Yogurtland of high-end handbags! Needless to say, it's also on the spendy side. Bags range in price from $1,195 - $1,795, and the handles run you extra, up to $515 for the croco. Wonder if you can show up and just buy the handles? [Racked Inbox]
