By now, many of you have read about the lengthy endeavor that lead to me treating myself to this Saint Laurent Monogramme Bag. As promised, I’ve used my bag plenty of times since it finally arrived to give you an accurate look at what fits inside. Spoiler alert: I carry a lot of stuff–anyone in the office will tell you that I’m a walking Duane Reade.

Personally, I hate bags that look stuffed full from the outside. I’m happy to report that, even after fitting 15 items in my bag, you’d never know it was full from simply looking at it. Even so, my bag wasn’t overly stuffed, and it’s easy to get things in and out when I need them. In the short amount of time I’ve had this bag, I’ve taken it to work, a vacation in the Poconos, nights out in Atlantic City, family parties and out shopping, and I’ve never felt the need to complain about its functionality or size. It fits everything I need at any given time, and when you buy a bag, isn’t that what matters most?

    Pretty bag…I just have a difficult time trying to alter what I carry with me for an every day bag. If you carry a lot, you would laugh at what I carry! My cosmetic bag and my sunglasses bag would have to go for sure!????

    I love the what fits feature – so helpful – thanks!

    • Katherine Callaghan

      Good, I’m glad!

  • Giselle

    Any modeling shots?

  • Violet

    Please show some modeling shots of you and the bag empty and you with the bag full. (Let us know how tall you are too, please). This seems like a great size bag based on your post but I need to see it on a person.

    That is such a gorgeous bag, I’m jealous. So much better than the python version. Could you add one more photo of everything inside the bag? And do you carry all those cosmetics loose or in a pouch? I’d be afraid of the top coming off the hand cream tube, for example. Or the lipstick tube coming open. (Not like to happen with Chanel, I know, but I had an Armani lipstick whose cap never stayed on. I finally had to stop carrying it.)

      I’m glad I decided on the croc-embossed! When I carry small bags like this, I actually don’t keep anything in a cosmetic case or pouch. I probably should to be safe, haha.

  • FashionableLena

    I just can’t visualize those sunglasses fitting in this bag. The profile looks too slim.

    • Katherine Callaghan

      I was skeptical also when I bought the bag if my sunglasses would fit but it does! I place them on top of all my stuff that way I don’t bend the glasses and the bag closes perfectly.

  • Just wanted to add we’ll start doing modeling shots with the What Fits category going forward! Sorry we left it out in the first two!
