But Ellington’s Hannah tote, that’s different. It isn’t necessarily a diaper bag; it’s a tote, designed to carry files or a small laptop — or all the diaper gear and snacks and stuff that it takes to get out the door with a baby or toddler or kid of any age, really. The inside is divided by a zippered center pocket, which means you can put diapers on one side and your things on the other.
But there’s nothing infantile about this bag; this is a totally grown up handbag crafted of buttery soft leather that resembles — dare I say it? — your sweet baby’s bottom. Only prettier. And under $200.
I love the small pockets for your cell phone and sunglasses, plus the twisted leather straps are sturdy and super comfortable, no matter what you’re carrying. I recently hauled one all the way to Texas and back, fully loaded with my laptop and camera and all the other random stuff that I need with me when I travel and it still looks great.
I just wish I’d had a Hannah tote when my kids were little; it beats the heck out of all the ugly diaper bags I owned. -Susan
