While I am all excited about joining the Mom Club, I am also more cautious with my spending especially when you have to start saving for your dear son. I really wanted to get a new Birkin 25, but we all know how much that would cost me! I had to find the next best alternative.
I got my first Sac De Jour in black with textured leather and silver hardware for HK$18,250. I got the size Baby ( 26 x 21 x 13cm ) which is one size smaller than size Small and one size larger than the Nano. I love this size, in fact, I find it even better than Birkin 25! I am 5’1′ by the way.
I know, Saint Laurent Sac De Jour still has a high price tag but as compared to Hermes, this is probably 1/3 of the price or less.
Although they don’t have a fancy name like Togo Leather for this cute Baby Sac De Jour. The textured leather is very similar to Hermes’s Togo Leather. Of course, it comes in other type of leather like smooth leather, alligator leather and more, but I find this classic texture leather the best looking and most durable.
This beautiful bag comes in four sizes but I ended up getting size Baby. Why? It simply looks most classy and it is the perfect size for my frame. I didn’t like size small, it is very similar to Birkin 30 and I never really liked Birkin 30. It suits most girls with the perfect torso with the perfect figure. But I am not one of those lucky girls. I find the size Baby looks most flattering on and I guess it’s made for petite women! While I find the Nano size incredibly cute, but I was shopping for a classic everyday bag that looks like a birkin 25. So my goal was clear.
A zipper compartment was only added to size small and medium back then. But Saint Laurent has added a detachable zipper pouch in the middle for size Baby this year! The pouch can be used as a clutch when detached or as a divider when attached. How smart is that!
I carry this bag with me everyday! It fits so much! Like your wallet, iphone 7 plus, card holder, cheque book, make up, more make up… Pretty much everything you need!
