I have been searching for the perfect Mama bag for well over a year and a half. Maybe you’ll recall, I’ve posted about this before. My trusty backpack is not cutting it anymore- it’s such a pain to dig things out of the bottom of it. Here were my criteria:
a) Must have ample exterior pockets for quick-grab items like phone, wallet, hand lotion, sanitizer, lip gloss, etc.
b) Must have a cross-body shoulder strap AND handles, preferably two handles as opposed to one.
c) Must have divided interior sections.
d) Must not have the kind of zippers that hurt my fingers to open them. (You know, the toothy metal kind.)
d) Ideally, would be medium brown.
Well, I finally found one that meets four out of five of my criteria, and I’m FRILLED. Meet my bag. I’m in love.
The interior has three sections, two with magnetic snap closure, the middle one with zip closure.
Notice that the lining is actually of a tasteful and attractive fabric.
And the ample front pockets keep wallet and phone handy, among other things.
Look at what this baby holds, with room for more!
In case you’re curious, here’s a run-down of what I often carry:
I’m loving this gal. The only criterion she didn’t meet was that she’s black instead of brown. Oh well, she’s still smart and stylish and very non-diaper-bag-ish. A best of all, I got her on SALE for $65, originally $200. Can’t beat that, right?
