View Full Version : best UNDERSTATED yet UPSCALE diaper bag?

11-13-2005, 08:41 AM
Ok, I am looking for a nice, understated diaper bag for my 1 year old. background inf: we are pretty wealthy, & because of that, try to not be so 'showy' & so I am trying to find something that isn't so recognizable (like a Petunia or Gucci etc..) something without a distinct logo/brand....

Any ideas?

PS-I do like fashion a lot, so Im trying to find something cute, just not so 'showy'

should i do a plain black bag maybe? a Kate spade (the ones w/o the logos sticking on them maybe?) OR, should I just do a nice black large handbag?

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

If you're into leather (so to speak) check out

Timi & Leslie Mommy Chic -- logos only on inside pouches
Fleurville Luxe -- tiny embossed logo on leather patch on front, doubt anyone would ID it

or for handbags that can do double duty, lots of folks seem to like the Apres Midi d'un Chien Fourmi W, but it's a recognizable brand

Consensus is that Kate Spade bags are poorly organized, though I'm sure some folks love them. I have no experience with them.

I have been drooling over the new Mia Bossi bags. They can be found online at www.miabossi.com or at www.bellablumaternity.com. I don't think they have a logo that is noticeable and they are so new, I doubt anyone would recognize them. I also agree that the Kate Spades, however cute, are not very organized. Best of luck with your search!

I'm not a fan of anything remotely resembling a diaper bag, which is probably why I'm a fan of the Un Apres Fourmi W. I like simple and stylish, so it works.

You can get a great price on a Fourmi on ebay. There are usually a few listed.

Good Luck!

How about a Dante Beatrix? Some of them are low key and very stylish IMO. Ebags and Babystyle carry them (last I checked)
