How Much Are You Willing To Splurge On A Diaper Bag?

This question popped up when I started my hunt for THE NEXT DIAPER BAG. I’ve spent so much money on cheap bags that would last 3-4 months before giving way. I guess it is also partly my fault for buying normal bags and not diaper bags. You see, diaper bags were made to withstand all that battle ammo you throw in. Like the diapers, wet tissue pack, milk bottles, warmer, bibs, books or toys and so on. But yet, the fashionista in me finds most diaper bags boring. I didn’t want to be seen with a bag that obviously looked like a diaper bag. Because let’s face it, most diaper bags are ugly and not stylish.

My first diaper bag was a proper diaper bag but we had so much stuff in it and the sling wasn’t cushioned so it actually hurt to carry it around. After that, I bought a few other bags which eventually had their straps break because they could not withstand the weight I was carrying around.

Now, I’m wondering if I should just invest in an expensive diaper bag. Maybe a branded one. Or maybe I should just get a branded bag to double up as a diaper bag since branded stuff last longer, right?

But was I willing to splurge on something which some mothers point out that might be constantly covered in drool, poop and food. (Actually, I had gotten poo on my Prada before) Look at the Louis Vuitton Mini Lin Diaper Bag (discontinued), I think it could pass off as a laptop bag. Oh yes, anything that doesn’t spell out Diaper Bag!

Adelina Madelina has some really cute prints but I’m still not so sure about the whole design. I know, I know, you must be wanting to slap me hard now because diaper bags look like diaper bags because they ARE diaper bags. Obviously, I am clear on that. I just wished that they could design and manufacture something that didn’t scream DIAPER BAG!

Maybe something like the McQueen bag which Rachel Zoe decides to use as a diaper bag. Well, I actually have my eye on a bag (and it is not a diaper bag) now but it is gonna cost me a bomb. So it’s between the bag or using the money to pay off life insurance premiums. Hmmm…

Lucky Dawn goes shopping at LV Island Maison for FREE

And so the 4th bag has been won by lucky Dawn Ng, an active member of the MFP FORUM. You can still try your luck for the remaining 3 brands – YSL, Miumiu & Chanel. Oh yes, Chanel… *inhale.. exhale*

Are you green with envy? Cuz I sure am and since it’s her bday month. MFP was so nice to let her top up 50% to a gorgeous Louis Vuitton Monogram Empreinte Artsy Ombre!

Nice bag, yeah? I think it oozes style & class, so much sophisticated looking than the usual brown monograms.
