Have you seen the Saint Laurent Sac du Jour, I don’t mean just seen, but more looked at it, deeply looked at it and appreciated it? If this bag has passed you by and hasn’t knocked you off your feet at first glance let me advise you to take a step back and look at that beauty again.
Why am I so impressed you ask………well let me give you just a few reasons why I think this is the best bag to come along in a very long time.
It was made with the modern woman in mind – From outside looks to its internal features, it is just a well thought out bag. The Sac de Jour is chic and elegant, but most importantly, it is a non-fussy bag that you will find easy to carry.
It won’t date. Simple as that. The Saint Laurent Sac du Jour has all the elements of a bag that you’ll be able to pull out of your wardrobe in 10 years and still want use it and still have everyone envying it.
No obvious embellishments, logos or hardware, in fact it’s rather minimal. It’s almost as though the entire bag is one glorious piece of minimalist art, which means you can have fun with the latest trend of personalizing it…..think outside the box and add scarves to the handles of lengths or ribbon. Pom-poms are also rather fashionable of late. Or simply
choose a bright color to stand out. Whatever you choose this bag comes in so many colors there’s a perfect size (or two, three…maybe even four) for everyone.
Celebrities love it too, and come on be honest……us girls always love it when your fave celeb has your fave bag.
The fact in comes in many sizes, because big isn’t always better!
The Birkin influence, there is no getting away from it as it does resemble a Birkin bag, but Heidi Slimane, (creative director) created this bag and openly admitted to drawing inspiration from the Birkin. It is not a case of “Birkin plagiarism more that The Sac de Jour is a masterpiece of its own taking inspiration from the Birkin, which is the most iconic bag across the globe. Saint Laurent has taken the many of the beloved features of the Birkin like its top handles, gussets, and clochette, and modernized them.
So those are my reasons why I love this bag! But as usual my dreams of owning this in the near future were slim unless I was to win the lottery so I decided to trawl the replica sites to see if I could find one…….
I ordered from my tried and tested favorite site which I’ve used many times in the past
It’s fairly easy to navigate around this site, all the names are listed on the right hand side of the page (and along the top too), so simply click on the brand you are looking for, in this case “Saint Lauren” and start scrolling. There is also the option to search for the bag you want too.
As luck would have it the Saint Laurent Sac du Jour was available in 5 colors, 4 neutral, grey, tan, black and brown and one bright blue leather bag that instantly stood out to me.
This was my baby.
With the original version retailing at $1500- £2500 I was rather happy to see that the replica bag version was only a fraction of the cost. There are two prices, so if you only purchase one bag the price is higher, but if you purchase a couple the price drops down by a further $80.
Unfortunately finances dictated that this time I could only have one…sad me! However when I got to the check out I was also gifted a free LV pochette….happy again.
Payment is relatively with card payments or western union options available.
J’adore! I honestly….I love it. The color is perfect, it pops. It’s so bright, just like in the picture. It looks fab with jeans but also with my work outfits. With minimal details little could be wrong with the actual bag other than the quality of the leather, which is super. It feels strong, but is supple and it isn’t too heavy to carry. The stitching is all lovely and straight and the interior is so nice too. So many replica sites sell bags with awful, cheap interiors. This was just perfect and in keeping with the rest of the bag and unlike the Birkin it has a very handy compartmentalized interior, which is just super for keeping things where they are meant to be. If I had to rate this from 1 – 10 it would be 11. It’s 100% perfect and I’ll more than likely be buying the Saint Laurent Sac du Jour again just in a different color.
