Bags for Every Budget

Bags for Every Budget

Our favorite totes that fit every price point--and every essential. 

 

Motherhood comes with a bit of baggage, but that’s not to say that it can’t be cute. We’d even be bold enough to take it one step further: motherhood can be cute, and functional. We’ve literally built our brand on it. Yes, there will be sacrifices. Sushi will not be a part of your life for the full nine months of pregnancy. You have almost certainly had your last night out (past 10 pm). And once you’re past the infant phase, you’re almost guaranteed to also be past the piece of your weekend designated for Netflix binge-watching. 

 

But alas, there are a few things you can hold onto, like your favorite bags. Whether you’re taking these from pre-baby to post-baby, or you’re just in the market for a new bag, these are our favorite carryalls for every budget.

11. PROENZA SCHOULER LARGE TOTE  $995

Proenza Schouler is one of those designers that spits out fool-proof style every season. Which makes the reasons we love this particular tote virtually endless.

    Omg I Finally Got Helped !! I’m so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out.. I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I’m so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp cell number +2347012841542
