OK, so as a bit of a handbag obsessive with varying tastes, it is rare that I feel myself salivate over a changing bag but that all changed when I saw the StorkSak Emily Bag in a delicious bronze. It’s been repeatedly saying to me, ‘Natalie, you know you want me! You can find a way to sneak this past the boyf!” In this colour, I’m not so sure, and I reckon he’s getting wise to me. I can’t even say his mum brought it as she’s visiting next week…
Anyway, where there is a will, there’s a way.
Why do I love it? Because it looks like a handbag that I would buy anyway. The fact that it’s also a changing bag just makes my heart sing and gives me one of my shopping palpitations sessions. When I say that you shouldn’t lose your style kudos just because you’ve popped, I want my mama gear to accommodate my new lifestyle, not send the equivalent of a flashing neon message with a lairy, babyfied print.
This beautiful classic is made from soft nylon with an adjustable strap with gold hardware and contrast stitching. It contains a padded changing bag, a detachable bag that can be used for wipes or make-up, lots of inner pockets for your bits and bobs, plus each dual pocket is insulated so that they keep fluids warm or cold for up to 5 hours. Take a look inside the bag.
I’m a big fan of this shoulder sak style and I love the little details like the contrasting zips with the tassles that give this a handbag, not changing bag appearance. You could use this bag even when you no longer need to carry changing gear although if you’re anything like me, you’ll probably be using a different handbag by then. The point is, it looks so great, it is a handbag.
It’s also available in chocolate, black, pewter, and sand.
And for those of you who like to know which celebrities are carrying this brand, think Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brad Pitt, Liv Tyler, and Julia Roberts.
