Timi_femme_chic_2Like many new moms, I started out motherhood fully obsessed with diaper bags. Motherhood was scary and unfamiliar, but accessories, Iknew.  Once I was an expert at the diapering, however, I found myselfgazing longingly back to the "regular" handbagsection. I assembled a clever collection of pouches and ziplocs forwipes, clothes, snack but I soon realized though that I could not bring myself to put a sippy cup in my designer bag because of almost imminent sippy cup leakage.  There had to be a solution.Something that made me feel chic. Without making me freak.

The Femme Chic collection from Timi and Leslie, was the answer to my fashion prayers.

On the outside this new bag from the well respected manufacturer, ispure class. The elegantly quilted tote, in rich luxurious leatherreminds me of  Marc Jacobs or Chanel – it has a pure designer vibe. Itlives up to the Femme Chic name. And it’s pleasantly lightweight for aleather bag of this size. It sits comfortably on the shoulder. And thecolor choices like caramel and black reflect the classy vibecompletely. These bags go with everything, from jeans to work clothes.

But it’s what’s inside that makes the difference. Big difference. Awaterproof croc embossed lining. With plenty of slots for sippy cups.And whatever else you need to tote. Pockets galore.  It’s the first bagthat I’d actually put (deep breath) milk in. Without flinching. Mychildren need thirst no more.

Another great functional feature that this bags boasts are the fullyhidden stroller straps. Integrated into the interior, they make thebucket tote completely stroller friendly in two quick clips. So youneed not fret about bringing any other bag to the mall. Don’t besurprised if you get asked, by some non mommy types, where you got thegorgeous purse.
