I wanted to introduce to you my new bestie LouLou, aka the Saint Laurent Toy LouLou bag. I have been lusting after this bag for about 4 years now. About 2 years ago, Selfridges had it on sale but I sadly missed it and since then the price has continued to increase. I knew it would be a solid choice regardless of the increasing price tag however I wasn’t yet prepared to depart with £815 to secure it.
After my First Designer Purchase experience with my beloved Trail Boots, I knew my next big purchase had to be a bag. I thought about saving up so I could buy this bag on my next trip to Paris in September however timing was on my side for once and I spotted this by chance, on sale & in the exact combination I wanted.
I immediately ordered, it arrived the very next day, well evening actually and I was absolutely delighted. I wasn’t sure if it would be too small and end up being impractical however it’s actually bigger than I expected and has a few different sections to make it easy to fit things in.
It’s not quite the same buying something so poignant (for me anyway) online, you don’t have that in store experience however on this occasion it was 100% the right way to do it and if I’d waited even a day I’d have missed out.
I’ve been using a black quilted bag from Mango just about the same size for so many years now and that’s part of the reason I knew this particular bag would be the best option for my first designer bag purchase. It’s a style and shape I love and it can be dressed up or down. It’s also a classic and I know I’ll be able to wear it for years to come.
