Raise your hand if you want a Winnie-the-Pooh diaper bag. No? How about a bag with soccer balls and baseball bats on it? Elmo? Dora? Bright pink daisies? No?
Couture moms-to-be want a bag that doesn't scream "dirty diapers inside here." They want a bag that is upscale, chic, elegant...a bag like the ones offered by Petunia Pickle Bottom.
The Ventura, CA company offers backpacks, shoulder bags, totes, satchels, and clutches with refined details and a sophisticated edge.
I recently had an opportunity to review the Boxy Backpack in Rhone Blooms. The exterior is stunning and sensible. It wipes clean easily...and also features a built-in changing pad, a detachable dirty diaper pouch, and plenty of pockets. It reminds me of something you might see in a cafe in Europe - worn by a vogue mama wearing a flowery dress w/ a gorgeous, rosy-cheeked baby on her hip.
The only downside that I can possibly see is that it's a little wide in berth (see right). Oh, and then there's the price (gulp).
Other than that, though, it's perfectly lovely and functional at the same time.
