Reader Erika (hi Erika!) recently wrote to Style Lush with a request for an updated diaper bag. Now that her son is 10 months old, she doesn't need all the space her Skip*Hop messenger bag has to offer (nor does she likely need the backache - I had a black Skip*Hop messenger bag myself, and in addition to being the Black Hole of diaper bags, it was heavy and bulky) but she still wants a dedicated baby bag, just a smaller, more stylish option.
The good news, Erika, is that I found nine bags I think you'll love: they're semi-reasonably priced, they all have some sort of closure at the top to prevent spillage, and all of them are true diaper bags with room (and pockets!) for all your essentials inside. I don't know if you'll agree with my taste in patterns, but rest assured that each bag shown here comes in many different colors. Here's hoping you find something here that you love!
(Jennie can personally vouch for the awesomeness of the Keeta Collection, and I am a big fan of my Reese Li and Ju Ju Be bags. I was also a huge fan of my Sally Spicer tote until someone barfed on it and rendered it... well, let's just say it was dead to me after that.)
