A fashionista is known for her effortless style and impeccable taste. That applies not only to her choice of clothing but also to her accessories, and nothing makes a statement more than a fabulous bag. Moministas and Preginistas will not let go of their style just because they are moms and moms-to-be. They just adjust and get a bigger bag!
I searched my partners at Shopstyle and identified what I think are the 5 bag (or types of bags) that every Mominista must own. Here they are, in no particular order of gawgeousness:
The Everyday Bag
I like this Madewell’s cowhide tote because of its earthy color and the fact that it is also versatile and would complement any outfit. It’s made of pebbled leather. and is spacious inside so it would fit all of your stuff and more! You can get it at ShopBop for $168 which is a steal for an everyday bag.
This Longchamp bag Le Pliage Nylon Backpack also retails for $125 and is great on those trips to the shopping mall, grocery shopping, a casual day event or a stroll down the boardwalk on a cool night. It keeps your hands free in case you’re pushing a little one in a stroller or plan on shopping and having a lot of bags to carry about.
The Travel Tote
If you want a durable bag that will stand the test of time and is also an iconic luxury bag, then the Louis Vuitton Monogram Cabas Piano Tote is your bag. It is spacious, and has well stitched straps which can withstand the weight of your mini laptop, changing pad, a few diapers, your wallet and more. Right now this $1,045 retail bag is on sale for just $475 at TheRealReal but I’m not sure how long that sale will last. Good luck getting your hand on one before they sell out.
The Earth Friendy Bag
If you are one of those people who dislike wearing animals and are a vegan, there are options out there in synthetic bags that resemble genuine leather like Urban Outfitter’s reversible vegan tote. You can use the black or tan side and it is a really great deal at just $59.00. It comes with a removable strap for those times you need to wear it across the chest and remain really hands free.
The Glam Bag
When you’re going to a more formal occasion, such as a reception or a fancy event, you want to go more upscale with your tote. Sometimes a clutch just isn’t large enough so you can get a tote that can also fit on a red carpet. Christian Dior’s Mini Cannage tote will work and it too is one sale for $42o
There you have it. Do you own one or more of these totes? Are you an official mominista?
