fashion friday: mom bags that don’t look like it

I got a request last week from Megan: “Can you do a post on fall purses? My criteria are: not black, big enough to throw two diapers in, sturdy and the outside has to be wipeable (think leather and not suede)…”

She said “Purses” so I’m in! There are about a zillion good options, so lets narrow it down to just a few. Here they are from cheaper ones to the most expensive.

The Kim by Big Buddha is on Piperlime. Love the grey, love the structure, love the shoulder strap…

Um, YUMMY! Again, this Melie Bianso Ariana bag is so totally on trend that no one will notice the diapers you have stashed inside!!

Loving this color – and hobo bags are huge 😉 Wouldn’t this look great with a charcoal gray peacoat? Or a trench?

If you don’t want boring black, Orla Kiely is perfect! Does this bag just scream “fall”???

This is gorgeous. The Extra Mile bag from Hobo International is divine. And speaking of divine…
You can never go wrong with Kate Spade.

    With the exception of the first one (which reminds me of Quilted Northern TP–sorry) these are all great choices! I’m especially fond of the second one.
