Hi lovely people,
I’ve been eyeing the velvet toy loulou in burgundy. I missed out last year and have been waiting for it to be released again but so far nothing :sad: has it been discontinued? I’ve never owned a velvet bag before, any tips from those who have one?
Thanks! :smile:

Hi everyone, yesterday I noticed some corner scuffing on my Loulou. It's only a year old and I haven't worn it much plus I was super careful with it. I've read here and there on the forum that people have had this issue as well. Is there anything one could/should do about it or do I just have to live with it? Thanks!

Hi all! I’m debating between the Toy LouLou and Small LouLou. I don’t carry much at all day-to-day (compact wallet, LV key holder, chapstick, small hand lotion, hand sanitizer), but am looking for a nice small bag that I can use to run errands & and buy groceries.

Long term, I’d love to get both sizes, but then that brings up color. I think I have my heart set on getting the small in black & gold, and the toy in a lighter color - either one of the beiges or blanc vintage. Orrrr...should I get the small in beige and toy in black? so hard to decide!

For context, my style is quite minimalist and I usually gravitate towards neutrals and darker colors. However, I LOVE the look of the lighter LouLou shades. What do you all think?

I've been thinking about the same thing! I have been wanting the toy loulou after seeing others carry it, but the small seems like a better option for everyday use. One of my all time favorite color combinations is the monochrome black leather with black hardware. I love how it's very discreet and sophisticated. I'm also considering the toy in beige. Besides maybe being too small, I also dislike the leather strap. It looks really flimsy and too long for my body...

I think the small would be a better choice first. It's probably what I'll be getting.

I have the black on black toy loulou. It's adorable, seems well made, is lightweight & can fit the basics, BUT my big cell phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 10+) will NOT fit easily with any case on it. That was a big disappointment since I always have my phone with me. It fits without the case, but I'm always afraid of dropping my phone since I'm so used to having a case on it. Other than that, it's an easy small bag to use on a daily basis, assuming you don't carry a lot with you. There are also a couple cardslots built into the bag, as well as a handy slim middle open pocket.

In terms of the strap, I actually like the leather strap since it's comfortable and light. I did buy dark gunmetal and black all metal chain straps from another brand (Coach) though for when I want to change it up. Someone (here on tpf or YT) recommended the Coach Dinky chain strap, which is what I purchased. They're nice, substantial feeling chain straps & fairly inexpensive. You could always look for other crossbody strap options if you don't like the all leather one. I almost always wear my bags crossbody since we usually have our dog with us. The leather strap it comes with is a good length for me to wear crossbody (I'm 5-6).

Hope that helps! I don't think you can go wrong with either size bag. It just depends on how much stuff you carry with you. Happy shopping!

Hey guys! Just received my long awaited Toy Loulou... could someone tell me if these deep creases in the bag are normal?? I don't have the heart to send it back yet because I've been waiting so long! Thanks :smile:

Thank you for that information! I have a Samsung Galaxy Jean2 which is 15 cm x 5cm (~6in x 3 in) so I think it would be able to fit into a toy loulou. I do like the idea of getting an interchangeable strap. It's such a cute bag so it's really hard to decide.
