Now *THIS* is a Diaper Bag

On the hunt for a new bag, I came across the Prada Diaper Bag.

Back in July, I was eying this Prada Vitello Daino Hobo as I compiled my favorite red, white & blue inspirations for Fourth of July. Its buttery-soft leather and cool blue hue had me day dreaming of strolling the avenues with it fashionably tucked under my arm.

Fast forward a month or so and I started getting serious about a diaper bag purchase. Traditional diapers bags are certainly practical, with all their pockets and pouches, but even the more stylish always felt so dowdy to me.

First time around, I opted for a bunch of LeSportsac variations in cutesy prints as I considered a diaper bag to be more of an accessory for the baby than for me. But one afternoon shopping on Bleecker about a year ago, I spied the most gorgeous leather diaper bag in the window of Little Marc Jacobs, which made me believe I could actually carry one and still be me.

Of course that bag has since been discontinued but I figured I could always try and track one down.

My first course of action was to search eBay, one of my go-to resources for accessories, particularly anything sold out or discontinued. Remember the yellow bubble necklace I wore a few weeks ago? eBay all the way!

I wasn't able to locate the diaper bag I'd seen sometime ago BUT while searching for totes with side pockets I found THIS beauty staring back at me, a Prada diaper bag! Well, not really a diaper bag but it sure fits the bill:

The same collection and color as the hobo in a big, roomy tote, with side pockets to boot! It's sold out in stores but was still priced at a major discount to retail.

I had to have it. Especially after noticing the new stretch marks on my under belly.
