New Diaper Bag

If there is one specific thing that my Dad spoils me with, it's pretty new bags.  Such was the case when he flew in on the day of Fletcher's birth and surprised me with a new diaper bag. 

He may have gotten a hint that I fancied this bag... isn't it gorgeous?  I'm so in love.  It's the Burberry Bridle Hobo Bag.  My version is all leather, which I can't find anymore, but I like this plaid version a lot too.  It has 4 different compartments so organizing is easy.  My dad also surprised me with this Gucci Hysteria Tote when I had Lilly.  I guess I have a thing for "non-diaper bag" diaper bags.


So what's your style?  Do you (or will you for all of you non mommas) carry the traditional diaper bag or are you more like me and just make large bags work?

I used to be a diaper bag kinda girl, but I have turned the corner, and baby girl and I will be using my new LV as both my purse and diaper bag :)

I definitely plan to use a regular bag this time around. Those diaper bags clash with outfits. No good!! ;-)

Non traditional all the way! Great choice! LUCKY!

I definitely want a non-traditional bag. I love the LV carry-alls. Although Kate Spade does carry some cute diaper bags that look more like totes too...

Wow! What a generous + stylish dad!

I agree with Liz... your dad rocks!! I love the idea of carrying a chic bag as a diaper bag, much more stylish than a normal diaper bag. Gorgeous choices!

Wow. Nice Dad.

I plan to use a Goyard tote. I figure since it's not leather it's fluid friendly. Love the Burberry Bag:)

Gorgeous. Makes toting all of that stuff so much more enjoyable. I can't remember what I carried, but I know I copied Angelina Jolie because it was super cute ;)

I am determined never to own a "real" diaper bag!

When I had W I used the Gucci diaper bag but with M I ended up getting the LV Palermo GM, it was the perfect size with 2 little guys and still is my go to travel bag since I need it stuffed with treats when flying!

Kudos to your dad for having such fab taste!

I never could bring myself to use a real diaper bag...I've never seen one that I'm like "oh yeah, I would *TOTALLY* carry that bag even if it wasn't a diaper bag!" )c: These are absolutely gorgeous, thank goodness for being daddy's little girl, right? (c:

love both the burberry and gucci bag! funny story, a few years back i complemented a girl on her purse and it turned out to be a diaper bag! i guess there is hope after all :-)

Oh I hate diaper bags! As in the usual, regular, real diaper bags! I got a Dooney and Burke nylon bag when Matthew was born. Nowadays, I've been using my Le Pliages a lot, I think they are the perfect bag when you have kids ;)
PS: your dad is the best! love both bags!

I'd take the burberry over a diaper bag any day. I carry a diaper bag, but my dream one day is to design my own stylish diaper bag.

More proof that your dad buys the best presents EVER!!!!

Hello friends,

Nice choice! A diaper bag is a storage bag with many pocket-like spaces that is big enough to carry everything needed by someone taking care of a baby while taking a typical short outing. Thanks for sharing it.........
