My Next Diaper Bag AKA Purse

Ah, the important things about having a baby like selecting the perfect diaper bag. I am so not a fan of traditional diaper bags that scream “I’m a mom.” I prefer to invest in a tote/handbag that could be used for an everyday bag as well. Before Sterling was born I invested in a kick ass Gucci Tote that I still love and carry as my purse frequently. Those were the days back when I was working full time and could afford luxuries like that, now I can’t be dropping that kind of money even though I wish I could. I have narrowed down the bag to a few options so help a sista out and tell me which you think would make the perfect diaper bag for baby girl.   Keep in mind I will most likely use as my purse too.

OPTION ONE ||  GIGI NEW YORK PYTHON TOTE

 I adore this tote, its python and the perfect size, plus they will emboss initials in gold that look so good.  I am torn between going the neutral route and getting the black or tan or getting a fun color like magenta.

OPTION TWO || MADEWELL TRANSPORTATION TOTE

This one by far is the best price but I just can’t decide if it is too boring.  It is a great size and also can initials embossed on it in gold.


OPTION THREE || MISSONI WOVEN TOTE

I have a soft spot in my heart for all things Missoni.  This is a bag I could pass down to baby girl one day.  Such a fun pattern, but would I tire of it?

OPTION FOUR || REBECCA MINKOFF TOTE

My mom found this tote at TJMaxx and I am kind of smitten with it.  Love the leopard and hot pink combo.  It zips and is the perfect size.


OPTION FIVE || ANNABEL INGALL LARGE TOTE

Love this tote, would love it just to have as a purse, but of course it is the most expensive.  Is it worth the money? 

and I ordered this pouch for Diapers and Wipes, so cute right?  Plus it can double as a clutch for me.

Flamingo Pouch


Take a vote and tell me which diaper bag you think is best for baby girl- option 1,2,3, 4, or 5?

    I LOVE the Gigi New York and have it in tan, I will warn you though dark skinny jeans will "rub off" on it where it hits your jeans. I wish I had gone with the black.

    This is so tough! I like the first one and magenta would be so cute snide you're having a girl. I also love the Madrwell tote but I feel like some of the reviews said the handles are kind of short to put on your shoulder. I love the Missoni one and almost bought it in black and white over the summer. And the Rebecca Minkoff one your mom found looks nice and slouchy. I guess my fav 2 are #1 and #3.

  3. October 10, 2013 / 12:12 pm

    I am digging the Madewell bag. I tend to go for beige with everything, but at least you know it will match with whatever outfits you and sweet babe have going on 🙂

  4. October 10, 2013 / 12:13 pm

    #1 in black or tan!!! Though that bag your mom spotted is pretty sweet!

  5. October 10, 2013 / 12:14 pm

    Hi Natalie! I recently got the Annabel Ingal bag and LOVE it! I got it through Enchanted Home and it was a little cheaper. Good luck!

  6. October 10, 2013 / 12:19 pm

    I would get 2 and 4. 4 is fun and funky but you might want to mix it up depending on what you are wearing. 2 is classic and can used forever.

  7. October 10, 2013 / 12:31 pm

    #5 or #1, and I like black for that choice b/c it looks rich.

  8. October 10, 2013 / 12:45 pm

    I like the classic look of the Madewell one (and definitely get it monogrammed).

  9. October 10, 2013 / 1:26 pm

    I vote 1. You should think about the strap thickness and make sure its comfortable once you fill it.

  10. October 10, 2013 / 1:39 pm

    I'd go for the Phyton Tote…though choosing the colour might be more difficult! But i say go for the magenta one..since you're having a baby girl 🙂 it's a cool colour, which personally, i'd love wearing for many more times after the 'diaper bag' period is over 😉

  11. October 10, 2013 / 1:42 pm

    #1 in Magenta, monogrammed. The one time you can go extra girly and it will look great! That bag has such a great texture and slouch to it.

    • October 10, 2013 / 4:03 pm

      I'm considering getting the same bag. My only concern was the straps holding up. Do you hang it buy the straps on your stroller handle ever?

  12. October 10, 2013 / 2:02 pm

    ok so I ordered the Annabell Ingall and the madewell tote from shopbop and I was so dissapointed with the quality on both! I was really hoping the annabell ingall would work 🙁 I think the Gigi is awesome and a great price!

  13. October 10, 2013 / 2:07 pm

    Option #4. Cute with the pink since you're having a girl. Zipper is a BIG plus!

  14. October 10, 2013 / 2:15 pm

    Love #1 in black! I also love the last one (before the clutch)–super gorgeous and definitely can see how well-made it is.

  15. October 10, 2013 / 2:28 pm

    Option 4. Love it!! And I'm sure the price is right! 🙂

  16. October 10, 2013 / 2:33 pm

    Love all the options, but I'm definitely partial to #2 – the Madewell tote. I've had this bag for about 6 months now, and I absolutely love it. I bought it as my "work" bag, but found myself using it as a purse/tote, too. Go for that!

  17. October 10, 2013 / 2:39 pm

    I love the tan snakeskin option…but have you looked into Cuyana totes? I recently ordered one and love it! It's similar to the first one you mentioned but a littler taller and there are a million colors and you can have your initials put on it as well. OH and budget friendly!

  18. October 10, 2013 / 3:04 pm

    I seriously like them all, such a tough choice! I've hear that the Annabel one is roomy which is fantastic because you can throw a lot of stuff in there. Love the gigi too.

  19. October 10, 2013 / 3:18 pm

    I vote for the GG NY in the black or tan!!! The Annabel Ingall is a close second. I have the small size in coral and I adore it!

  20. October 10, 2013 / 3:25 pm

    I was going to say #5 but then read the comment above about the quality.. bummer! Decisions decisions… Gigi seems to be in the lead.

  21. October 10, 2013 / 6:08 pm

    I have the Annabel Ingall tote and LOVE it. I fit my wipes, diapers, toys, and cooler with bottles and snacks in it AND all of my stuff. It wipes clean very easily too and is super sturdy and not heavy. I cannot say enough good things about it!

  22. October 10, 2013 / 6:09 pm

    I vote Rebecca Minkoff. I love all of her purses. I used to want the Annabel Ingel bag but I saw it in NY and decided it was too plain to be so much.

  23. October 10, 2013 / 10:13 pm

    Option 4 is adorable with the hot pink patent strap. You can't go wrong with Rebecca Minkoff – great quality merchandise. The price at TJ is probably amazing!!! Good luck Natalie!! Love your blog!!

  24. October 11, 2013 / 12:54 am

    I like #2 and #5 the best. Neutral and go with everything. You have great taste!

  25. October 11, 2013 / 1:48 am

    1 # Tote, all the way. Which color, though. HMM

  26. October 11, 2013 / 2:41 am

    I love option 1 and option 5! It just depends on if you have the funds to go for option 5, if you do i think it is beautiful:)

  27. October 11, 2013 / 2:43 am

    I love option 1 and option 5. The black one is very pretty and is a great everyday bag. Option 5 is so beautiful and classy looking. You can tell just by looking at it, it is not cheap. If you have the funds go for option5!

  28. October 11, 2013 / 2:44 am

    I love option 1 and option 5! It just depends on if you have the funds to go for option 5, if you do i think it is beautiful:)

  29. October 11, 2013 / 3:47 am

    Love 1 & 5. Go for it! Today is National Handbag Day after all! 🙂

  30. October 11, 2013 / 10:57 am

    Have you checked out Mia Bossi? They are amazing bags and actually made to have all the conveniences of a diaper bag (extra pockets, changing pad, removable liner for washing, etc). I have the Emma and haven't looked back. Definitely worth investigating to see if it suits your style: http://www.miabossi.com/
