This is such a gorgeous bag! Its very reminiscent of the Gucci Marmont Matelassé because of the leather tassel, chevron style quilting, and gold chain straps. Somehow, though, they each have their own vibe. So yes, it’s ok to have both! 😁
Measuring at 4.13″ High, 7.09″ Wide, and 1.97″Diameter, the Yves Saint Laurent Lou Mini is pretty small. It’s big enough for all of your essentials, though. I easily fit a hand sanitizer, makeup, pens, a medicine bottle, and some other things in mine, with room left over. You can also fit a standard size wallet, but there’s no need since it has 3 card slots inside. Also, there is a chevron shaped pocket on the back of the bag.
The interior is smooth leather, and much more roomy than it appears! Where most bags have a zipper pocket on the inside back, the Lou has 3 card slots (but you can fit 2 cards in each slot). This frees up room that would otherwise be taken by a wallet.
The outside is made of 100% calf skin leather, and the YSL initials are metal. It has a zip closure with a leather tassel for the pull. The shoulder strap is a gold chain with good weight to it, and there’s leather at the shoulder part for comfort. It’s a little short to wear crossbody style, but definitely possible. It just depends on your preference. There is a chevron shaped pocket on the back of the bag.
This is a beautiful, elegant, and dainty little bag that’s perfect for everyday use. If you don’t carry any large items, I for sure recommend this! Otherwise you may want to size up. The regular size is only $160 more!
