A couple weeks ago I celebrated my birthday and I was lucky to get YSL Monogram Blogger Bag, my first YSL bag, as a birthday present from my hubby. Yay!!! To be honest, I have been looking for a small red cross-body bag for a while. The choice was between Gucci Soho Mini, Mulberry Mini Lily and YSL Monogram Blogger Bag. Being a blogger, it was very appropriate to get a ‘blogger bag’, plus I loved its practicality and value for money. After all this blog is about staying stylish without breaking the bank, right?
Apparently, YSL’s creative director Hedi Slimane dedicated this Blogger Bag to the fashion bloggers, thus making it more affordable than most of their bags and satisfying fashion bloggers’ crave for luxury brand bags. And it’s such a versatile and cute bag – I just can’t get enough of it! Yes, it’s pretty small when you first look at it (H: 12cm, W: 14cm, D: 6.5cm,) yet it has room for all of the essentials. Plus, it has an outside back pocket for a metro pass.
Here is a quick review I recorded to show how much you can fit into this cutie.
And here are few more looks I styled – from super casual, weekend looks to dressy going out outfits.
Summer Chilling – pairing up relaxed t-shirt with boyfriend jeans and cute lace up sandals.
Flower Power – another summary look with fitted black top and flower pattern shorts, paired up with colorful accessories and pom pom sandals.
London Calling – for an evening, more sophisticated look, I choose red lace dress and gold heels/accessories look.
Sea Breeze – I love a nautical theme which always makes pairing stripes and polka dots in reds and blues a winning combo!
Sporty Chic – if you are after a polished look on casual days, this pairing of a funky sweatshirt with skinnies and white trainers is a great solution.
So, as you can see, this little yet mighty red YSL Blogger Bag is super versatile and chic. If you are interested in getting one, you can buy it here. I hope you love it as much as I do!
