As a Native New Yorker, I know just how picky women here are about Handbags in general. The first criteria for a good Diaper Bag in New York City is that it look like anything BUT a Diaper Bag. And let's face it, few bags fit the bill. For the most part, moms are still offered GIANT tote bags, and expected to be happy with that.
I don't know about you, but I save the 'tote' structure as my beach bag for summer, other than that, it's not a silhouette I'd carry on a daily basis. I want something a bit more structured even if it's a 'daily' or 'commuter' or 'errands' bag.
So for my busy mama's on the go, I give you......
The only thing that would have made it absolutely perfect since I'm not yet a mom is a leather option. I tend to go with Leather bags, and while this is not leather, it's a non-PVC Faux leather, it actually can pass for leather which of course makes me happy! But I'd love it if they added a Leather Option down the line! :)
