One of Saint Laurent's Least Expensive Handbags Is Called the ‘Blogger Bag’

According to Purse Blog editor Amanda Mull on Twitter, Saint Laurent has named one of their least expensive handbags the "Blogger Bag," making it perhaps the most amusing form of fashion industry shade we've seen in a while.

Coming in at $995, the bag isn't actually cheap. But considering that most of the brand's other satchels and clutches fall anywhere between $1,500 to $2,700, it's a steal for anyone who needs a logo in their life.

It looks like a purse a street style blogger would carry; the mini shoulder bag comes in your choice of black, powder pink, or sky blue, featuring the iconic interlocking YSL logo and a fringe charm that's practically longer than the damn bag.

At 4.7 inches wide and 2.1 inches thick, it's literally just big enough to fit an iPhone 6s, some keys, your platinum Amex, and maybe (maybe) iPhone #2 (you know, the one you use exclusively for Instagram).

It isn't, however, the cheapest Saint Laurent bag on the market. But the cross-body leather phone pouch for $695 is just called Phone Pouch. Styling your tiny 'lil blogger bag is easy because it looks good in just about any Instagram filter. Position it atop a croissant for the perfect brunch photo or wear it with your "Ain't Laurent Without Yves" T-Shirt, because it's cute and ironic.

If you're looking for ideas on how to perfectly capture your new blogger bag once it comes in the mail, check out some of the Instagram shots below, courtesy of — you guessed it — style bloggers.
