How small is small when it comes to Saint Laurent’s Classic Sac De Jour? From the regular SDJ that’s good for work to the Nano that measures a wee 22 cm across (there are 4 sizes in all, by the way), the size I’m adoring the most that’s small but not too small (yes, there is such a thing when it comes to bags, no?) is the one that’s appropriately named Baby.
One up from the Nano and coming in at almost 26 cm across, the Baby Classic Sac De Jour is in my opinion the one you’ll have to get if you’re looking for a good city-sized bag, one that’s big enough for the day’s essentials, but not too big until it becomes a convenient dumping ground for things you don’t need in the first place, which I have witnessed for myself when I poked around in some women friends’ bags, from three mini umbrellas (really, who needs 3 umbrellas?) to 7 lip balms gathered at the bottom of the bag.
Wear it by the sling or just use it via its top handles, the Baby Classic SDJ is priced at SGD3190. Yes, I know, it’s not cheap right? Then again, what luxury bag is nowadays, so you might as well spend your hard-earned money on something you really love, yes?
It’s available in grained or smooth leather variations, although I’m always partial to anything grained since in my books it would mean it would hold up to accidental nicks and scratches better. However, that would be your choice at the end of the day, as would be the colour you pick, be it Lipstick Fuchsia, Royal Blue and Yellow.

I was deciding between the SDJ or Celine Nano Luggage before my trip to SG. Yesterday, I went to both stores and somehow I fell in love with the SDJ Nano so I got mine in grained black leather. I already have a Celine Mini and somehow I felt it was too pricey for the Nano.
Happy with my buy!
That’s great news! Thanks for sharing too!
