So, the old diaper bag just wasn’t cutting it anymore. It was getting too…shleppy. And I needed to feel less diaper-ish and more stylish. For myself. I needed out of this frumpy style rut and what better style upgrade than a tote/purse that you carry every day. It’s like an upgrade for every. Single. Outfit. It is definitely a worthy investment for your wardrobe.
But, while I love stylish…I also need functionality. I need to be able to whip out diapers, wet wipes, goldfish, and lip gloss at a moment’s notice because let’s be honest ladies, you don’t always get a warning before your kid craps his/her pants or you run into your high school ex boyfriend at the park… or both simultaneously. So when I found this bag… I fell in love. It was like “50 Shades of Grey” on the outside and “Good Night Moon” on the inside, just what I was looking for.
The designer of this masterpiece is Kate Landry and all of her bags are “vegan,” not that I really give a sh*t about that, but it does happen to mean that everything is faux leather, which means you can clean it with a diaper wipe when you spill your coffee down the side of it and you are not going to pay the high price of real leather, but you still get the same sexy look- Yaaaaas.
It also features a detachable zipper insert for loose items like a wallet, keys, or lip glosses. This zipper insert is so fantastic because you can pull it out and toss it into your giant pool bag if you need to bring those things somewhere, but don’t want to carry another tote.
And the best part about all of Kate Landry’s designs in my opinion, is that they are FUN, FUN, FUN! So many color and print options available and she never forgets about the interior of the bag. I’m going to preach on about having fun ladies, because we don’t have to be so serious all the time. Yes, there is a time and place for your classic black leather overpriced Kate Spade tote…like a funeral or a job interview. Neither of which are very much fun. So come on, step out a little, have some fun!
Below, you can see that I completely lost my mind and bought TWO of these fantastic Kate Landry Tulip Tote bags. They are online now and only cost $39! You can leave the tulip tassels on or take them off. You need this tote.
