If you have been following me for a while, you may already know I am obsessed with luxury bags. Some people love watches or cars… I love bags, nothing I can do about it… not that I would change it!
I have always been a huge Saint Laurent fan and knew that someday I would start my Saint Laurent collection. Before I buy any bags, I tend to to a little research on the different styles a brand has, usability, sizes, colors, metal color options… I am not rich whatsoever so I do try to know some basics about each model so I can make a more informative decision while spending such a big amount of money.
If you are not familiar with the Loulou toy Bag, it is a sleek smooth leather cross body bag. It comes with different colors as well as metal finishes. The one I went for was the black calfskin leather with silver hardware. I was on the hunt for a new black back I could wear with my casual outfits, and this bag is perfect.
The bag itself is pretty small, it being 20 X 14 X 7,5 cm. It has a rectangular shape and it is pretty puffy. It has a snap closer in the front and offers 3 card slots, a flat central pocket and one zipped pocked. The quality of the leather is simply amazing. The bag offers the option of detaching the shoulder strap so you can also use the bag as a little clutch. Though I have to say, the shoulder strap is not adjustable, but it is great for me (I am 1,74m). You can also fold it in half so you can have a shoulder bag instead of a cross-body.
Is size an issue? For me not really. I am really into mini bags and I personally do not carry that many things in my purses anyways so small bags are just great for me. If you are someone who loves big bags and have to carry half of your house around, this bag is definitely not for you. But if you are like me and like to only carry the essentials, then I really recommend this bag for a more casual less flashy look.
As I have previously mentioned, the bag offers a few inner pockets. These are great to just carry your cards in those instead of carrying a separate purse. The good thing about smaller bags are the use of space. It provides the perfect amount of room for the bare necessities.
As it has different compartments, it is easy to organize the items you bring with you pretty easily. I like to know where everything in my bag is, so this just makes my life so much easier.
Now onto the wearability. This is a classic design that is both simple and chic. The outfit options for a bag like this are endless which makes it such a versatile piece. The colouring is neutral allowing it to work well with any colour scheme. I love the options to wear it by altering the strap and the effortless way it can take you from day into night. If I were to take this on a trip away with me I wouldn’t need to worry about packing anything else as it does work with everything.
What are your thoughts on the Saint Laurent Toy Loulou bag? Would you ever consider buying a luxury handbag?
