I must admit that I am a handbag snob. As soon as I got my first paycheck from working at my part time job in high school, I went to the mall and got a purse. Of course, I did not spend too much money because I did not make very much money at the time. After finishing graduate school and working at my first job, I did not hesitate to walk into a designer store and spend hundreds of dollars on a single bag or wallet. I did not have kids and I had a lot of disposable income. With 2 kids now, I am not buying as many designer handbags as I like (though my husband does spoil me every year by picking one up for me), but now I am a diaper carrying mom. The last time I went out for a mommy's night out, my friends teased me because I was still carrying a diaper bag, lol. Yeah, I deserved that. I did not have the time to switch out my bag and I haven't gotten a new bag in so long that I was not really excited to move things into another handbag just for the night. However, the next time I head out for mommy's night out with my friends, I will be carrying my chic Nicole Lee bag.
Here's a video for it:
This cute quilted bag has plenty of room for my stuff. I was able to put my wallet, car keys, cell phone, small make up bag and even 2 cloth diapers with baby wipes in it. The wide straps for shoulders make the bag really comfortable to carry. I especially like the pearls accenting the bag and the shoulder straps. There is an outer zipper bag and a zipper pocket inside the bag. There are also compartments for my cell phone and loose items like lipstick and gum. Most of all, I love how fashionable the bag looks. It is so nice to be carrying a bag that dresses up an outfit and does not automatically scream "she is a mom."
