Ladies, believe it or not having a baby doesn’t mean you have to throw out all your ultra stylish handbags in favour of something covered in Winnie the Pooh, fluffy sheep, or blinking owls (ok, we’ll admit, owls are pretty darn cute!) Thanks to local designer Love Milo, moms are taking back their wardrobes and strutting around town with some stylish new arm candy. That’s right moms, those days of treating elegance and style as a rare extravagance are over because this new Love Milo nappy bag-slash-tote is both practical and stylish serving both you and baby on the go.
Love Milo says it is possible to have a beautiful baby bag that can carry-on serving you by doubling up as a handbag when your little man or lady grows out of the nappy phase. The Love Milo Nappy Bag looks like a striking leather tote but has a water resistant inner lining and a delightfully sophisticated changing mat that is just as stylish. Easy to reach into without a plethora of zip caves that, let’s be honest, nobody has time to open and close, this classic accessory is a must-have for moms who don’t want to splash out on an expensive baby bag that will be useless in a few year’s time.
Mother of three, Love Milo’s Nicki Ellis realised by baby number two that brightly coloured plastic just wasn’t going to cut it for her. “After having three babies, I’d say I’ve seen my fair share of nappy bags, none of which were ever really nice. I really felt a need for an elegant carrier that could be used at a later stage and didn’t shout – I had a baby so now I have no style!” says Nicki.
This beautiful bag is made entirely from soft genuine leather and is decorated with a Flying Bird canvas inner lining. The 100% cotton canvas is both stylish and practical and has a water resistant finish making it easy to wipe clean. The bag also comes with a matching changing mat in the same design so you and baby can both use the bag with ease. And, when you grow out of the nappy phase you have yourself the perfect over-sized tote for shopping trips and carry around your kids’ endless amounts of stuff. Brilliant!
The Love Milo Nappy Bag is available to buy online and will set you back R2500. The price may seem steep but when you compare it to the price of other nappy bags, and other leather bags it’s a great deal! Remember leather also lasts a lifetime! Click here to buy this stylish tote now.
