So this girl walks into a google search engine… types, “chicest, most practical diaper bags in existence” and waits for said “chic” and “practical” diaper bag(s) to appear on the screen like magic. Shockingly, this is not what happens. Hours later, girl is still searching. Because for whatever reason it’s very difficult to find an (affordable) totally gorgeous and equally practical bag to lug one’s baby shit. And yes, this girl is me.
Hi, how are you. Please help.
I’ve never carried a diaper bag before. Instead I just threw all baby items in an oversized purse and called it a day except this is a different time and I’m about to have TWO newborn babies at once + two other children + myself to carry things around for. And no matter how hard I (still) believe that diaper bags are a ridiculous marketing ploy to convince women they NEED unnecessary things, my “oversized” purse will not suffice. So here I am; on the prowl for the perfect DIAPER bag with a thousand pockets + five cubic feet of space to hold forty bottles, sixty diapers and a cardboard cut-out of The Nanny to take with me to the grocery store to confuse people.
So far I fell in love with this one (which according to the goose chase I just went on) is Fall 2010 extinct RIP.
Marc Jacobs via Nordstrom:
This one, which is a pinch out of my price range:
Hermes Croc (Mean!) Blue Sapphire Diamond Bag, $280,000.00 (ed: money apparently doesn’t buy taste)
This one, which is just… so amazing I can’t even… speak. (thanks ever so much for the tip, Bethany):
This one I really dig but it’s way too small to satisfy my needs:
Petunia Picklebottom, $147.00
And this one, which I can’t tell if I love or not because Zappos always finds a way to make everything look cheap. (Or is it just me?)
Anyway, I’m calling on YOU dear readers to help me find the cutest diaper bag ever. Here are my criteria:
- It must be extremely large.
-It must be extremely cute.
-It must not be terribly expensive.
-Thank you in advance.
-I love your shoes.
