From time to time around these parts, we tackle the somewhat tricky issue of diaper bags – do you go for a pattern or a solid? Leather or nylon? High-end or practical? The same one no matter what you’re wearing or several different ones to coordinate with your outfits? As I always feel compelled to mention in these posts, I’m single and without children, so I’ve never had to make these decisions for myself, which makes your input in the comments all the more important.
If I was looking to spend a little money on a fun diaper bag right now, though, the Kate Spade Union Square Stevie Baby Bag would be a strong contender – it’s patterned to hide wear but not too girly, and animal prints (particularly those involving black) look right at home in my wardrobe.
What I particularly like about this bag is that the design makes it clear that it’s not just your average tote, but it’s not one of those sickly sweet pink paisley things that you see so often (no offense to people that like those, of course). It’s a diaper bag for a grown woman with a sense of humor who wants something that straddles the line between function and fashion. Buy through Nordstrom for $395.
