Hi all,

I am planning on purchasing my first Saint Laurent bag and wanted your help as all stores in my area are closed due to lockdown and I can't go into the store to check them out.

I am debating between the small envelope, medium envelope, toy Loulou, and small loulou
I know that whichever bag I get I will get in black.
I also know that if I get the loulou I will get the black hardware.
I am not sure what hardware I would get on the envelopes but likely gold or silver.

please mention which bag, size, and hardware you would get/own

thank you!

for reference, I am 5'1

The bags are different looks/personalities. Are you looking for structure or pliability? The envelope is more formal. I too like the small Lou in black. I like the shoulder or cross body versatility. The toy is nice if your current need is a mini bag. Think about what's missing from your collection. Which makes your heart sing? :loveeyes:

I have the med envelope (black w black hardware) and toy lou (dark green w silver hardware), love them both. The med envelope was actually my first YSL handbag purchase so I am partial to it! It started the love for the brand for me so honestly it would be my top suggestion for you.
I agree with the previous poster that they are all different vibes :smile: It of course depends on your needs but I find the small envelope is too small for me. The small lou lou is on my current wish list but need to try it in person first; I want to be sure it can fit all my essentials.

Do you prefer structured bags or something more relaxed? Look into your closet, the answer is already there. I can't do structured bags, I look funny with them. So I vote for the small Lou or the toy lou.

Between the small lou and the toy lou, small lou is bigger, so it carries more. I prefer function in this instance.
