The Saint Laurent Sac de Jour bag is a hot item on the market these days. Over the past few years, the Sac de Jour has become more popular, with many women choosing to purchase one for their own collection. I have found myself as a member of the Sac de Jour group! My thoughts on this bag are extensive and after receiving both questions, and compliments on this bag, I thought it would be best to share an in depth review. This bag is powerful and sharp, while still remaining luxurious and classic. Below you will find an in depth review of the bag including specific details of the bag itself, what I love about this bag and a few regards I have about the Sac de Jour.
Saint Laurent Sac de Jour
The Saint Laurent Sac de Jour is available in 4 different bag sizes, ranging from the smallest, the Nano, to the Largest, Large. The size shown in this post is the Small, also known as the second largest of the bags (you can see a comparison of sizes here). The bag comes in a variety of different materials, leather, suede, exotic skins and hair, as well as studded. You can also find the bag in many different colors, from neutrals, to brights and metallics. As you can see there are many different options and combinations for this bag. For me, when making this investment. The choice was simple. I wanted black grained leather with gold hardware. A classic, and in my opinions, safe and wearable combination. That Small Sac de Jour measures 12 ½ “ W x 9 ¾” H x 6 ½” D, with a top handle drop of 3 ¾”. The bag is quite roomy and can fit a variety of different items ranging from small leather goods, a medium size agenda, and even a small Macbook. The bag also features compression snap straps that allow for the bags accordion-pleated sides to be expanded.
As for the hardware on the bag, I love the many gold details found on and around the bag. You will find that the Saint Laurent brand has a subtle but continuous presence on the bag, as it is found on all of the hardware detailing. Everything from the button closures on the compression snaps, to the zippers and lock, contain the Saint Laurent logo. The bag comes with 5 metal feet on the bottom, to protect the leather from any damage that may occur when placing theban on a given surface. This is one of my favorite features of the bag. That bag also comes with a removable strap that allows fora 19″ shoulder drop, if you desire to carry the bag as a shoulder, or cross body, bag. As for the interior, the bag comes with basically three main compartments, one of which is the center zip pouch. There is also a smaller additional zip ouch at the back of the bag and two small pockets on the front of the interior,which could be used fora small amount of cash, or maybe a credit card.

What I Love About This Bag
Truthfully, there are so many things I love about this bag. I love how its structure is simple and timeless, but that Saint Laurent has infused their branding and personal flare to the bag. The accordion-pleated sides add so much character and a fierceness to the bag. The gold hardware is absolutely beautiful and I love how it is shown in pops throughout the bag, but it doesn’t overtake the overall appearance of the bag. The Small size is perfect for me because it is large enough to fit everything that I need to carry, but it isn’t bulky at all. Rather it is convenient in every way! The grained calfskin leather is one of my favorite parts about this bag. It is rich and luxurious, while still being durable. It does not scratch easily and ages so well!
Overall I love the appearance, quality and structure of the bag. It is such a GirlBoss bag and is fashionable, without being trendy. In my opinion, it’s definitely a must have in any girls bag collection.
What I Don’t Love About This Bag
In my associated Youtube Video, I explained one of my biggest disappointments with this bag. If you watch that video, I go more into depth about my issue with this specific bag. However, I will say that another one of my disappointments with this bag is just how the front of the bag lays. I love the overall structure however I wish the leather on the front of the bag was straightened structured. For some reason, the front of my bag has all kinds of lumps and bumps on it, and it drives me crazy! You can see more of that in the video as well!
