Retail Price Tag: $975
Description: Available in Black or beige-ebony. It is a fabric with leather trim; Dimensions: 11 2/5″H x 15″W x 7 1/2″D; Made in Italy.
Bellyitch Says: Like most bags monogrammed with the brand on it, this bag is another social status symbol because most people in the world will not be able to afford such a high end bag. However, for the fortunate few,capable of affording such luxury, this bag seems roomy, durable and a good investment. One of my colleagues owns one and it is so spacey that she carries it around like a work bag after she drops her twins off at the sitters.

Bellyitch Says: I’ve always liked Prada’s sleek nylon bags and can really appreciate the neutrality of the style in that dad can feel comfortable carrying this bag around too. This one tops the list because while it is room yand probably well constructed, you’re still paying nearly $1,000 for a NYLON BAG!

Bellyitch says: I dare say this is a signature bag that many professional women have and carry as a staple (well not this particular version pictured, but the Hamptons leather version. I purchased one at one of Coach’s outlets when I had my first child and it was such a great durable bag that I let it double as a work bag for years and years until I had my 2nd child. By then however, the weight of the heavy leather was a bit too much for me to bear with all the other crap and a double stroller I had to push around. So I retired it to my closet, but bring it out every once in a while. It was a lasting investment, but the weight of the bag makes me appreciate the Nylon bags I’ve been complaining about even more.

Make: Baby Tote

Bellyitch says: I can see this on the hips of younger moms, but yet it is attractive and still slightly conservative in styling that an older mom who isn’t too concerned by the young branding of Juicy can pull it off. I love the fact that the bag comes with a bib and diaper cloth. So goes introducing the posh life to your baby from jump street! Ha!
