While so many of the accessories we lust and obsess over are not essential, when you are a new mommy a diaper bag is essential. You have to be prepared at all times with diapers, bottles, food, toys, wipes, pacifiers, and whatever else I am leaving out. For the new mom who does not want to spend too much and wants a stylish yet casual bag the Burberry Denim Messenger Diaper Bag is a bull’s eye. Rather than overpowering the outside, the inside of this diaper bag is lined with the signature Novacheck pattern while the outside shows off practical and casual blue denim. Because this bag is all about practicality, there are two side pockets, a path pocket on the front flap, and a terry cloth changing pad included. The dimensions are 11″H x 5 1/2″W x 11″D. I may not be a mommie but I am half tempted to buy this bag for everyday use. Casual chic Burberry style is available through Saks for $229.
Just because you are running on 1 hour of sleep, look disheveled, and just want to collapse, being a mommie is a great thing. For bag loving women, being a mommie means needing a great diaper bag. The Timi & Leslie Hardware Mommy Bag is designed from durable leather and lined in waterproof metallic bronze which helps baby proof the bag. Inside there is also a changing pad and a matching Chinese brocade wristlet. On the outside you will find enough storage room with two front and back open pockets and side pockets. While some baby bags scream out ‘this is yet another baby bag’ this black bag is a little more edgy with gold hardware and a hanging gold heart charm dangling from the front. The bag closes with a magnetic snap and measures 16″ x 13″. Buy it for yourself or a mommie to be for $400 via Shop Intuition.
Oh yes, it is here. I have always raved about Coach producing new lines constantly. As if handbags, coats, glasses, and watches were not enough- Coach is now proud to be producing baby goods. I, for one, am thoroughly excited. Not that I have a baby, or even plan on having one anytime soon- but because when I do have a baby, I plan on dressing it in ridiculously cute clothes and buying ridiculously cute accessories. Now, my mom has always told me how impractical it is to spend big bucks on baby clothing and shoes, because they grow out of them so fast. So I do plan on listening to my mom; I will not buy them the ridiculously cute designer gear. I will let her do it.
For starters, every new mommie needs an adorable baby bag. I’m going to opt for the corny yet always classic and cute pink if it’s a girl blue if it’s a boy combo. The Coach Optic Signature Baby Bag is actually stylish to be worn even if you are not toting new baby. If you are looking for pocket space, this bag features an inside zip pocket, five open pockets, a back snap pocket, and two side gusseted pockets. I’m gonna bet that with all those pockets and all the baby stuff you have to carry, you might be lovin’ the pocket to ‘baby stuff’ ratio. Along with the pocket party, this diaper bag contains the ever needed changing pad for the dirty clean ups. I love the simplicity of the bag but the fun touch of the optic signature jacquard fabric. The inside is lined in fabric. For you dimensions junkies, which come in handy, the straps are 21 1/4Ã¢â‚¬Â while the overall bag is 15 1/2 (L) x 11 3/4 (H) x 5 1/2 (W). Turn your mommie changing woes into designer fun for $398 via Coach.
I always want to dress my baby in cute hats. I have to give props to my mommie because she always had all 4 of us dressed so cute. I am in love with the softness of the Coach Baby Pom Pom Hat. I’m actually wondering if I pulled, tugged, stretched, and wore it long enough just maybe it would fit my own head. This hat is made of cashmere and there is only one size available. Again, I wonder if it is one size fits all expandable type of hat. Probably not. This adorable little thing comes in light blue and pink also. For $98 through Coach any baby can be stylin’ and warm all at once. Now, if you have a hat, you have to get some matching mittens. What could be cuter than a baby with matching accessories? Umm… I venture to say just about nothing (oh, maybe that English Bulldog puppy I want soo bad!!). The Coach Baby Mittens are so cute that I want to fly back into the past and ask my mom to get them for my little baby hands. Made of none other than the softest imported cashmere, these mittens can make any little finger feel warm and cuddly. If any of you are looking for baby shower gifts, don’t you dare leave out the mittens if you get the hat or vice versa! Just for an extra precaution, the mittens have an attached string to help you keep from losing one out of the pair. These little guys also come in light blue or pink and are on sale for $98 at Coach.
Now it is time for the itsy bitsy tiny 10 little toes. We are looking for cuteness and warmth for this season, and Coach sure has it. For starters there is the Coach Baby Booties. These booties are simple and cute- just the way I like them. Like the hat and mittens, these booties are made of cashmere and are offered in light blue and pink. Grab these baby treats for $98 via Coach. But if you want your baby to really stand out with some fashionable tootsies, you need to opt for the material of the season- shearling. Ah yes, shearling is even being used for little baby feet. The Coach Optic Signature Shearling Baby Slippers scream out ‘Stud in the making’ or definitely ‘Diva in the making’. These little slippers show off the Coach Optic Signature fabric pattern. There is even more. The leather strap has a stylish turnlock detail and the slipper gleams with its shearling trim. To finish this petite treat off is a suede outsole. Hey, if you are buying stylish shoes for yourself, why not do the same for your baby (this is where my mommie would come in handy ;-) JK). Buy these through Coach for $128.
And finally, what childhood isn’t complete without a teddy bear? I know I have had the same bear since I was about 3. My sister’s teddy bear has made it through so much in life it is ridiculous ‘Barf Bear’ is still alive (don’t ask about the name, that was so her choice). We had surgeries performed on our bears numerous times, and I don’t know where I would be today without ‘Bear-Bear’. The Coach Baby Bear is ultimately cute and topped off with a little Coach Signature fabric satin scarf bow around the neck. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you much about the bear itself or its dimensions (knowing our designer luck it is probably a beanie baby- I will have to look into it this weekend). Nevertheless this teddy bear is quite cute. Buy this pink or blue themed bear with its matching colored nose for $58 via Coach.
If you still haven’t found what you are looking for, try the Coach Baby Cashmere Blanket (for $198), the Coach Baby Bear Suede Picture Frame (available for $98), or the Coach Enamel Teddy Bear Keyfob ($48 through Coach).
Oh how I’d love to be a Coach Baby kid!!
So little Miss Fiore has not been my favorite lately. Some of her designs are cheaply appalling. But then I stumbled across this Isabella Fiore “Bubbles” Large Baby Bag and realized that I really really liked it. Just plain and simple, I like the bag. It’s a cute summer diaper bag that can show off a fun-side from the average black baby diaper bag. I know when I have kids, I will be sure to have different bags to tote around like a diaper is a fashion statement. Hey, it is! So for you mommies who want to prove to the world how much fun you can still have when being a new mom, I really suggest this bag. The bag measures 16.5″W x 10″H x 6″D and can be purchased through Adasa for $310.
All I keep hearing about is women who are expecting. I bet this is actually some of you ladies, right? It must be spring. Yes, let’s blame it on spring. Either way, finding a diaper bag must be a pain. I know there are beautiful designer bags, but I have noticed that many of them are made of cotton, which is probably a really bad idea when you think of it. Think of spit up, dirty diapers, baby food being slung, and all of that other beautifully clean “stuff” babies do. Don’t get me wrong, I love babies!! But I know they always find a way to make a mess, and I, being the Purse and Handbag Connoisseur, don’t want to let you mommies have your precious bags be negatively affected!
With that being said I ran across this Crystalyn Kae Bossa Nova Baby Bag and that ding-ding-ding, light bulb flashing sort of deal went off in my head. Not only is this baby bag not the typical box shape, it is also washable!! Score! For this one I am going to let the website do all the talking because I don’t want to leave any important information out:
“The striking contrast of metal hardware and draped sashes, punctuate these buttery-soft glazed handbags. Delicately ribbed grosgrain showcases front flap details and lining. The draped strap is cinched into metal rings and attaches with silver snaps to allow for you to wear it long across your chest, or shorten the strap to 18″ or 24″ to tuck under your arm. Inside, 3 elasticized pockets, large enough to accommodate bottles, plus cell phone pocket, PDA / Mp3 player pocket, and inner zip pocket keep everything in place. Zipper closure with snap flap. 15″ tall, 18″wide, 3.5″ deep, 34″ strap – (snaps to adjust to 18″ or 24″). Hand wash in cold water, hang dry.”
So women, let me know what you think! I think this is one of the most practical and stylish baby bags ever. If this bag does it for you, click your way to Virgin Threads and buy it for $145.
If your mother is a new mother, a new diaper bag is not only a nice idea but a necessity for new mommies and their babies. There are two diaper bags that can be either for a baby boy or girl and can show off the mother’s sense of style (even when she is actually beyond exhausted). First I want to delve into the glorified simplicity of designer Kate Spade with her Kate Spade Large Baby Bag. The baby bag is made of cotton canvas with adorable doodle-print nylon changing pad and lining. Other necessary features include double shoulder straps, leather tie closure, four open and one zipper pocket inside and comes sized at 10″H X 15″L X 5″W. I would chose this hot number for a mommie with a new baby boy, because the blue color is simple and divine. For a not so bad price, you can find this baby bag for $325.00 at Saks.
Now for my pick for the mommie with the new baby girl. I know it almost seems arbitrary to buy blue for a boy and pink for a girl, but I like the old-fashioned idea, and can not believe that it would ever go out of style. At first I was going to chose the Burberry Diaper Bag with the signature burberry check style, but decided on this lovely Burberry Quilted Diaper Bag in pink. I assume the store has it in blue also, but online I only see pink, so this is my pick for girls. Not to mention the quilted outside adds a feminine touch. Back to the bag. Burberry features a pink quilted fabric. Making sure it is evident that the bag is made by Burberry, the shoulder strap back is printed in the signature novacheck pattern along with other outer accents. Also it has a flap front with snaps, side pockets, and of course unzips to a changing pad. The bag can be purchased for $216 at Saks.
To you new and expecting mommies, I didn’t forget about you! Diaper bags become the acccessory you end up carrying when you have a newborn. The DKNY Baby Bag Tote combines style and simplicity to provide you with a new mommie neccessity. The bag comes with a removable changing pad, bottle wrap, and removable pocket, and is consumed by colorful lining and soft leather trim. Other features include the leather tie closure and inside zip pocket for your valuables. The bag finishes off with double leather shoulder straps with 11″ drop. There is no reason not to love this bag for a mere $185 of gorgeous practicality. Available through Eluxury.
What more could an expecting mommie want than a totally personal and adorable diaper bag? Look no further. The Shih “Jet Set” Charm Diaper Bag is not only practical but personal and fun. The bag can hold up to 11 charms which can be used to spell out the new baby’s name.
Want to buy it as a baby shower gift? Here’s an idea: put “BABY” on the bag and then get a gift certificate so that when Baby gets a name, Mom can order the charms to spell out the baby’s name! The bag is made of PVC so those messy spills will clean up easily. This hip bag comes with a baby bottle warmer, detachable shoulder strap, and changing pad. Dimensions: 14″ x 12″ x 5 1/2″. For merely $149 you can make the expecting mommie to be the trendiest mom at the playground!
It seems celebrities these days are having babies left and right and of course you know these super star parents would never carry just any diaper bag. Their bags are as diverse as their babies names which means they are totally original and one of a kind.
You’d like to grab the look of the endless list of hip celebrity mommies like Hillary Swank, Susan Sarandon, Annette Bening, Faith Hill, Cindy Crawford, Angela Bassett, Kelly Preston, Kelly Ripa, Jenny McCarthy, and Julia Louis-Dryfuss? I’ve found the bag for you.
These mommies are carrying around their babies diapers and goods in the Timi and Leslie Diaper Bag which lets the mom be unique and in style at the same time.
