Ooh La La: That’s One Hot Diaper Bag

I’m a nut for totes, purses, handbags, clutches, etc. When I spotted this gorgeous bag at Arte Bebe, I just had to blog about it…


This is the leather Mercer Bag, a new addition to the Nest’s collection. And what a diaper bag it is! It features suede details and gold tones hardware. It’s also a departure from black – remember navy? I think it’s a refreshing change.

Other features include:
– separate zippered diaper compartment at the bottom keeps the rest of the bag neat and fresh and includes an extra large changing pad and diaper and wipes pocket
– 2 large exterior and 1 interior zippered pockets
– 2 interior bottle holders
– 2 divided pockets to hold extra clothes, toys, etc
– key chain holder
– removable, adjustable long strap

Indulge at Arte Bebe for $385. Shipping is free.
