Saint Laurent Small Monogram Saint Laurent Downtown Cabas

First, let’s just get the awkwardness out. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I know you know what I think this bag, the Small Monogram Saint Laurent Downtown Cabas, looks like as well. Measuring almost 43 cm across at its widest point (and by widest point I do mean that pair of wings), it stands at around 22 cm in height, a new take on the Saint Laurent Cabas (sans the protruding sides) that already exists in stores currently.

Wear it via its shoulder sling, or hand-held, I can see why this would work, especially for those who can’t deal with the original’s (yes, that one that also comes with ‘wings’) front flap and clasp that some of you have trouble getting into, especially when one is in a hurry.

It would also work for those who love YSL’s signature buckle, a roomy interior and of course, the zip closure that runs across the top of the bag. Available in a vast variety of leathers, from suede to embossed leathers and the like, it’s also available in stores now so there’s really no harm heading down to either ION Orchard or Marina Bay Sands for a quick look.

First Comes Bags, Then Comes Baby: Baby Girl is On the Way!!

Other Brands

YES, you read that correctly! After 11 years of PurseBlog, eight years of marriage, multiple moves, major personal and professional milestones, countless bags purchased and even more bags discussed, Vlad and I are so happy to announce that we will be welcoming a baby girl come late November!

I’ve wanted to be a mom since I was young, and right when Vlad and I got married, I was ready to have kids at that moment. But soon after we were married, we decided to move to NYC, and with my personality and the craze of the city, I knew I needed to be somewhere a little more zen to begin motherhood. (Plus, I’m lucky to have the option to work from anywhere, so I wanted to wait for the right moment.) This past fall, I was about to share a very different personal post with you about the journey of trying to get pregnant, which wasn’t the easiest for us. But, just as I started to write that post, I discovered I was pregnant! I’ve always been very open with our readers and plan on sharing more on that journey soon, because I do believe we can help one another through speaking openly. First, though, I wanted to start with the big reveal!

I can’t even put into words how excited I am to be the mom of this little girl growing inside of me! I’ve experienced all-day morning sickness for the first trimester and have been feeling her movements and little kicks the past few weeks, and I looked at the calendar and realized I had just passed the 22-week mark. I always assumed Vlad would want a son, but I can tell you he has been so thrilled at the fact that we’re having a daughter; watching him gush over me and my growing belly is the sweetest.

Also, I have to share the story of this little bag, because it’s absolutely hilarious and absurd.

When Vlad and I were talking marriage and already running, I knew I wanted a family and hoped for a little girl to share my bags with. I had spotted a member on PurseForum who had a photo of her daughter with a Louis Vuitton Mini Sac HL Bag, and I knew I wanted one for my future daughter.

Fast forward a few years, and I heard rumors that this bag was going to be discontinued. We were in a Louis Vuitton boutique at the time, and the store had one of the last ones in stock for the company. I wasn’t pregnant and wasn’t trying to be pregnant, but I had to have this bag.

Vlad thought I was insane, and to be honest, I really kind of was. I’ve had this bag in its box in my closet for years, and it just so happens our first child is a little girl–an appropriately ending for this bag, and beginning for us.

I’m looking forward to sharing more with you all throughout this next phase of our lives, and I’m sure it will change my handbag purchases as well what I carry inside my bags and beyond. Here’s to hoping she loves handbags–my collection would be great for playing dress-up. Either way, I’m so happy to know that our lives are going to be much more exhausting and much different, with one more little person come November!
