Cheap But Cute
When you chose to have a baby, you chose to give up throwing money at the fashion industry... but you did NOT give up looking good.
The first casualty of your baby? Those leather pants. Ah, well. Bringing a new life into the world is a fair trade for some old leather pants. But dare you still wear that fancy silk shirt when a baby's dribbling down your shoulder? And Lord knows you're not putting dirty diapers in a six thousand dollar leather bag.
But a bag that's washable yet looks like leather... that's a totally different story.
A bag like this over your shoulder gives you that non-frumpy edge. People will whisper "how can she be so stylish when it's clear she hasn't gotten a good night's sleep in a month?" Strangers will say "That baby's in good hands with a fella who owns a bag like that!" And yet, they'll never know your secret.
Which is, of course, that you had to buy this bag on Woot because all your money is going into stuff for your baby. Don't worry. The thrift shop look is in right now.
