Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson was recently spotted leaving La Conversation Cafe in West Hollywood with an unidentified pooch companion. If her bag is giving you a little deja vu, you're not alone - that's the Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour Bag, and yes, it's very much like a Saint Laurent Birkin. Even so, it's a very attractive bag, IMO, and wonderfully minimalistic. Also, it's about $7,000 less than your basic Birkin, which is always a plus. You can pick it up for $2950 at Net-A-Porter.
My high school French is a little rusty, but doesn't "Sac Du Jour" translate to "bag of the day?" That's quite an amusing name to bestow on such a luxe, nearly $3,000 Saint Laurent bag. I like that Hedi Slimane clearly has a sense of humor. For celebs like Ashley Benson (and countless others, of course), the title is probably quite literal.
