*Warning, the following post is on a recent splurge* If I'm honest, I wasn't sure whether or not to publish this post as, it's on a ridiculously spendy purchase and I don't want it to seem as if I'm bragging or anything like that but I'm just too stupidly excited by this so thought I would share but long time LLA readers will know that while my many talents include justifying almost any purchase and though I don't mind splurging on skincare (in my eternal quest for clear skin) with the exception of a few accessories, for everything else, I'm all about the high street, Topshop, Zara et al all the way!
Anyway disclaimer out of the way onto the item in question. Say hello to my new love! The Saint Laurent Monogramme Sac Université Leather shoulder bag. Isn't it a utterly beautiful? I think this is the medium size. I was going to go for the smaller version but being the crazy bag lady that I am, I knew that I would use the slightly larger one more. I really wanted a cross body bag so love the adjustable strap on this. It has a snap closure and inside there are two compartments, one with a zip. This has the softest albeit delicate calf skin leather.
I actually went to buy their camera bag but for me IRL, it was just too small, I couldn't justify spending so much when I knew I wouldn't use it as much. I'm so glad that I splurged on this. A to me, from me x infinity present! While the interlocking gold YSL is undeniably chic, part of me wishes this was just embossed with the small Saint Laurent logo instead. They had this in a gorgeous bordeaux colour too but I know I'll get more wear out of the black. I adore this bag, a classic and I know I'll have it for years to come.
