From Diaper Bag To Handbag

Besides saving a butt load of money on diapers and wipes, one of the other benefits of having an (almost) potty trained toddler is no more diaper bag.

For the past 3 years I’ve been carrying around a Vera Bradley diaper bag. I love the bag but over the years it’s become a little dirty and well, it’s a diaper bag and I want nothing to do with diapers.

So, I’ve got a new Piazza handbag on it’s way to me. Genuine leather, beautiful hardware, and no room for diapers. #winning

But…before I share with you what bag I ordered (and what color) I want to know what bag you would get.

Here are your choices of bags (the color options are warm white, rich red, olive green, and peacock. They have other colors but these four are their new colors in the spring collection):

1.) Ava Hobo


2.) Torino Backpack


3.) Sorrento Shopper


4.) Capri Tote


5.) Corsica Shoulder Bag


6). Gia Crossbody


7.) Bianca Shopper


8.) Lucca Satchel


Spill it. What bag would you get in what color?

A hint on the bag I picked…it will look fabulous on my arm while I’m drinking this Strawberry Basil Mojito.

Update…click on this link to see which bag I picked.

Note…I am being sent a Piazza handbag from eBags to review but I am truly excited to be making the switch from a diaper bag back to a handbag so this post is something fun I wanted to do to find out what bag everyone would pick. After I get my bag I’ll post my opinion on the Piazza handbag.

    You’re so lucky. I’ve still got, like, two years of diapers. And that’s assuming we’re done. Those bags are so pretty. I love the shoppers, the crossbody, and the satchel. That red is gorgeous! (And it goes with your blog.)

      The red does go with my blog…I didn’t notice that before.

      I never want to touch another diaper in my life (until I have grandchildren that is).

    I have at least another 3 years with diapers. Don’t be jealous. ;)

    I really like the Ava Hobo. I’m afraid of getting that in white though.

    I like that Sorrento Shopper. I can’t do a crossbody because of the hooters. ;)

    #3 is a dream, hands down my favorite. I actually just got a new purse recently and it’s red. My last 3 were brown so I decided this one had to be a little more bold.

    • Jessica Torres says:

      I’ve always gone with black or grey purses so it was really hard for me to pick one of these in a bright color. Number 3 was in my top 3 choices.

    Number four is a winner for me. Now if you excuse me, as much as I like bags, I am off to see that Mojito.

    Number 1. Hands down. Love that look. I know – I’m so excited for cooper to be potty trained (fingers crossed for summer!) and get rid of the large purse/diaper bag. I’m ready for a little bit of mommy luxury. ;)

    I like #1 and #3. They’re both super cute and seem like they can carry a lot. I know you don’t need diapers anymore, but I think the big size is still needed. You’ll have to carry all the stuff toddlers still need…ie wipes (marker face, anyone? LOL), snacks and/or small toys. I always carry a big bag, baby or no baby!

    Probably the Bianca shopper in red. Maybe in peacock so I can think of Elena every time I use it.

    I gots to have the Crossbody in red for the ease of keeping it on my no shoulder body while trying to hold on to both kids.
    But I would love the Lucca in peacock too.

    But most of all I just want that mojito!

    I would likely go for the Bianca Shopper in the olive green. So pretty :)

    I’m guessing you went with Sorrento Shopper. Yes? No?

    I’d go with no. 7 but in red or maybe in peacock.
    But I never had a real diaper bag, I always used a handbag/shopper instead. And all the diaper related things I had in a plastic bag inside the handbag. This used to work perfectly, the bag over one shoulder and the baby on the other shoulder/arm. Gives you a great workout at the same time. Especially when the baby is getting bigger and heavier. Seriously.

    • Jessica Torres says:

      My diaper bag was so big that it fit everything I needed and my husband would take it sometimes so I didn’t want to use a handbag as the diaper bag. But I know what you mean by a workout with the big bag and the kid. Both can be very heavy.

    For all our travels, i love having a backpack style while out and about with the kids – and black really because i am old … i mean old fashioned and like things to match and would look stupid wearing peacock.
    But that last one is quite snazzy too … see i even use words like snazzy ;)

    • Jessica Torres says:

      I always get my bags in black so that they match with my clothes so it was hard for me to step out and order one of these bags in a bright color. I’m hoping it works out.

    I love number 5 the Corsica shoulder bag… I would go for peacock. They are all pretty nice. And genuine leather, yeah, I would love that.

  34. Definitely #7. In red. I don’t really need a diaper bag anymore since I only carry a couple diapers and some snacks. I want something cuter and have been looking around. I may have to check out this site.

      You should. They have a ton of bags from all different companies. I love the Kate Spade collection they have.

  35. Tonya says:

    Luckily, Lucas always poops before we leave the house in the morning so I haven’t carried a diaper bag in over a year. I just stuff a diaper and wipes and any snacks he might need in my over-sized purse.

    My favorite of the above is the Sorrento Shopper. I need a red bag!
