Last week I mentioned on Twitter that I was off to buy a diaper bag – a bit of an extravagance of a diaper bag. Because! There are a lot, a lot of things about motherhood that are all about baby, all of the time. But there are only a sparse few that are for moms. The bag is one of them. The bag is mine.
This is a StorkSak and it is a Patent Diaper Bag and it is so beautiful! And also happens amazingly wipe-clean-able.
It came in white, and lemme tell you – the white was… stupendous. But even though I was willing to spend all of my Christmas money on a bag that will most certainly carry around poop in some form, I couldn’t go that extra step of also buying it in WHITE.
If you are in the market for a bag… a pretty one, not just a functional one (because… they are out there… the meh looking ones that are HIGHLY functional, I know nothing about those kind) you should check out StorkSak…. because of this and this and this (and those are just a few). Also check out timi & leslie, and yeah – Diaper Dude (Kamel will for sure be receiving one of these for all of his dad duties).
So many awesome pockets! Some snug enough for bottles, some big enough for diapers/wallets/phones/small stuffed animals. And this pretty bag came with a changing pad and a waterproof draw-string bag that I can only assume is for… wet things, things that you want kept away from other, more dry things.
This isn’t sponsored or even well-tested, but I love the pretty… and the sensible. And when I find something that even surprises me with its awesome, I want to share. I stalked this bag online, and then went to find it in the stores, but of course I couldn’t find it actually IN Nordstrom when I went to scope it out, so I took a risk and bought it online and … it is just so much more awesome than I thought it could be. I really worried that these pretty bags were just a cover and a ploy to get people like me to spend too much money on something that would eventually fail them. I don’t think that’s what is happening here.
Happy shopping! Even if it is for something practical. I have a yellow and white polka dot laptop for a reason – happiness. I now have a sassy diaper bag that will (as said before) eventually carry around some form of poop for the same exact reason.
