So Mandy shared her current handbag obsession on Monday and i thought i’d share mine today. I’m not a huge handbag girl and by that i mean, i love quality bags but am not a big one to chop and change according to my outfit or mood. I have two or three spacious tote type bags for work, a big Longchamp bag which i use on weekends since its perfect for carting a gajillion things in it and two Missibaba smaller bags for when i am not carting baby paraphernalia and water bottles and drawing stuff to keep us busy if we go to a restaurant. I do have loads of clutches for going out – i love a clutch!
Lately i’ve had that ‘i need a new bag feeling’, so the timing was perfect when one of my blogger friends Nicola shared one of her favourite local handbag brands Thandana with me. They have a large range of nappy/baby as well as the most amazing leather totes – in classic shapes and shades that go with everything- and i’m thrilled to have discovered them…take a look at some of their wares…especially if you’re on the hunt for a non baby-baby, baby bag…
So, you’re looking for a baby bag that in no way looks like one? Here’s your answer – a beautiful soft leahter backpack with a nifty changing mat – something Dad won’t be embarrassed to cart around when he has the small person while you’re having a long lazy lunch with your friends and something that won’t clash with your outfit of the day!
Here it is in laminated fabric – with space for every conceivable item you may need for your baby – from bottle holders to separate inner dividers. This is also a fab choice for a gym bag!
Thandana’s laminated fabric and leather trim bags are very much their signature – this is their large weekender – perfect for chucking in everything you need for your weekend away.
I love this style of nappy bag for when you’re going away for a night or two – it comes with a changing mat and the separate compartments are super useful for stashing nappies and essential baby gear so that its close to hand. Of course it doesn’t have to be used only for baby – that’s just where my head is at right now.
Here it is in on trend chevron with leather trim.
How sweet are the little pouches?
Now take a look at their all-leather offerings…love!
THIS is my kinda bag – a soft leather tote bag with space for everything imaginable – love it! It comes in tan, dark brown and black.
Here it is in brown – nice huh?
The Jax bag is also a goodie but i think it’s the tote i want!
