One exact month after that post, I discovered I was pregnant! Talk about easily impressionable!
Being in my sixth month, I thought it was time I started my quest for a good looking diaper bag. It's funny how I already have a baby registry at Babies r Us, but I didn't include a diaper bag in it because I just didn't like their selection, and I rather pick that special bag myself.
There are two completely different directions I am being pulled when trying to pick this diaper bag: one is the fashionable direction, the other one is the adorable direction. For the adorable section:
Snoopy Pink Diaper Bag $25.99
How is this for adorable?
And can you beat that price???
Snoopy Blue Diaper Bag $25.99
I actually really liked this Snoopy model here,
but since I'm expecting a little girl,
there is no way I would buy a blue diaper bag.
I'm traditional like that... ;)
Being a bit of a Precious Moment fan,
I was very happy to find that they make
a diaper bag in pink and that looks totally cute.
Vera Bradley Baby Bag $97
Moving away from the extremely adorable
towards something a bit more grown-up,
here is one of Vera Bradley's baby bags.
I love this one in the "Hope Garden" pattern.
Juicy Couture Pretty Day Velour Ms. Daydreamer Bag $228.00
On to Juicy, as you can see, and as expected the price
is starting to get quite expensive,
but now we are talking about designer bags!
Although this is not a diaper bag,
I do think it would work just fine. And it's pink!
Poppy Metallic Signature Sateen Glam Tote $198
You didn't think that Coach wasn't going to make the cut, did you???
There are actually a few Coach handbags pretty in pink, even if I am not sure they would be very practical as diaper bags.
True story: I was in a Coach store about 3 weeks ago, and I was already showing, so as soon as I walked in and started looking around, the sales girl asked me: "looking for the diaper bag?"
I was and I wasn't, but I said: "Sure, do you have one?"
So she brings me over the bag, and it was pink, and I pick it up and I looked inside at the pretty pink changing pad. It was so pretty and so silky, I couldn't help myself so I said to her: "I can just imagine this delicate and pretty pink pad getting soiled with poop!"
She laughed and so did I. Then she told me: "In all honesty, you don't need this bag. You should get a backpack or something more practical".
She was also tacitly implying that I didn't need to spend $400 on a diaper bag.
I agreed with her and thanked her for her advice.
That's why if I would ever get a Coach bag to use as a diaper bag, I would actually pick a bag that wasn't specifically a diaper bag, but something that I could continue wearing after diaper season is over, too. Like this Madison handbag from this older post.
Or this Parker Op Art Shoulder Bag $298.00,
that is quickly becoming my new favorite!
(update 2012 - This bag is not available from Coach anymore)
