Mama’s got a brand new bag!

photo (7)

So, I know what you’re thinking…is she really writing about a bag? Yep, I am…because this isn’t just a new bag for me, it’s my new “diaper” bag for Mia. Double whammy! For me, a diaper bag always seemed like a weird thing to buy…especially a designer one. I mean, what do you do with it when you don’t need it anymore? It’s not like you’ll be toting around that bag as a purse…or do you?? Anyway, I know spending crazy money on a diaper bag seems impractical, but at least I know that this  bag will 100% be used again long after Mia’s diaper days are over. That’s how I got by hubby on board ;)

Louis Vuitton 2013 010
I knew I needed to be realistic and get a bag that would be big enough to house all the new things I’m carrying (seriously, Moms practically carry a Walgreens in their bags). I went to the Bahnhofstrasse and popped into Louis Vuitton (last year’s pop led to these babies). I looked at the Neverfull but I didn’t like that it doesn’t have a zipper. I looked at the Totally MM but it wasn’t as big as I would have liked. Then my fab friend Ana mentioned to me that I should look at the Palermo GM and it was love at first sight!

It’s really a great bag with three inside pockets and a main zipper. I can fit a portable changing station, diapers, wipes, hand sanitizer, lotion, makeup bag, wallet, Kindle, iPhone, blanket, change of clothes for Mia and a bottle of water.
Seriously, I’m totally set on space AND this is the type of bag that you’ll want to keep afterwards. I know we’ll get a lot of use from it with our travels.
So, what do you think of Mama’s new bag??

If you’re a Mom…did you splurge on your diaper bag and if so, what did you get?

XOXO,
Martha

    It looks like a beautiful and very useful bag. So much nicer than a regular baby-bag, and surely you’ll be using it until it wears out. That said though, my shoulder almost got sore from hearing about all the things you new mothers need to carry around! So much stuff that I might have been tempted to get one of those bags with wheels on the bottom! ;)

    Hope everything is going well with you and your sweet family.

    Great purchase and I agree after you no longer use as a diaper bag, you can easily make it an everyday purse. And most of all it is so pretty, Louis is always a good buy ;)

    Hola Martha!

    absolutely great bag! congratulations. I didnt know about that model. I always look and look again at the Neverfull but i dont like that it doesnt have zipper so this is great news for me :)
    I m sure that u are going to use it a lot and congrats to your husband that understands that we love LV :)

    • Hi Maria!
      I have been really loving the bag. There is definitely plenty of room and believe it or not, it is not that heavy.
      Some other Louis Vuitton bags are quite heavy without having much in them, so it’s nice to know my shoulder won’t cringe with pain everytime I use it ;)
      I hope you are able to get this one or something similar as I think you’ll really like it.
      Hope all is well!
      XOXO

  8. OMG I’d be totally on board too when asked if that bag is a must-buy!!! It’s the best buy you’ve ever made Martha…both for you & Mia!!!

    Gorgeous bag! I think I need to start getting my husband on board with this idea now, even if we are a few years out from having kids! It seriously might take that long to convince him… ;)

    I couldn’t comment on your previous post about breastfeeding ! So I am doing it here ..thank you for this post , I was breastfeeding my daughter for about 1 and a half years , which might be a bit long , but I Didn’t had to go to the work etc so it wasn’t a problem for me , however it was a problem for the others , I Had questions all the time about how long I’m gonna breastfeeding etc etc , in the same time I didn’t ask how long will your 6 year old gonna use the dummy ( sarcastic I know :) !
    It’s so so rare when in the Uk woman breastfeeding it’s kind of a problem when somebody does it , I only know one girl at the moment who breastfeeding and she is European the same as me ! It’s so brave of you that you breastfeeding in public , I never did that , always hiding in ladies room , but I Know one thing I will not gonna do that if I Will have another child , I have much more experience and stronger mind about all that now ..

    I am wondering when all this about breastfeeding changed so much !? In old days there wasn’t such a problem is it?!

    And that man who said THAT needs a slap !
