One Quality Accessory Every Mom Needs!

by Nellie

Full disclosure: When I got the email (yes I call it “the email”) that I was getting gifted a Dooney & Bourke Purse my reaction was somewhere along the lines of:

My very jubilant reaction was because I have been taught by my mom the value of a really good purse. She always tells me to save my money and buy a statement piece, one that will be perfect for any occasion in including work and simply just hanging out with the boys.

She was right.

I took the boys to Brooklyn Bridge Park over the Memorial Day weekend because the weather was perfect and it really is one of our most favorite places to be. The views alone are enough to put you in an immediate state of zen.

I received my bag a few days before and I decided to use her for the first time on our trip to the park. I placed my camera, some money and of course a few cars, snacks and tablets for travel purposes.

I wasn’t surprised by how easily she fit in with the rest of us.  The durability and beauty of the bag is simply unmatched. From the gorgeous leather double handles to the ease in which it hangs off my shoulder or in the crux of my forearm–I fell in love instantly.

My favorite part of the bag is actually the zipper on the front, for quick access to my phone, metro card and spare cash.

When it comes to color I had had a hard time choosing, I referred to my bag consultant, my mom for a color suggestion because I already knew that I had fallen in love with the Raleigh Leather Tara Shopper. When she said red, I balked–I mean the majority of my clothing is white, blue, or black. She advised red because it is the perfect pop of color especially in the wintertime. Brilliant. I knew I asked her for a reason!

The inside is just as gorgeous if you are wondering, with two zippered pockets on each side–perfect for business cards and a nice large space in the middle suitable for toys, snacks and even diapers! The best part is that I can carry stuff for the kids and still be completely cute in the process. 🙂

The Dooney & Bourke Leather Tara Shopper bag was something that I never knew I wanted so much until I met her face to face. From the detailed embroidery to extra pieces on the bottom that separate the bag from any surface you place it on, this really is the perfect bag. Not to mention there is a one year guarantee  against any defects in craftsmanship for a full year!

I was gifted a Dooney & Bourke Bag with no obligation to post. All opinions are my own.

Do you have any fancy bags? Do you own a lot of bags or just a select few? How do you carry around all of the “stuff” that comes with children?

I am a huge handbag lover from way back. And Dooney & Burke is still one of my favorites, too. So, love the bag you got and the color is awesome – so bright, fun and colorful!! 🙂

Your boys are so, so cute! They are growing so nicely.

Loving the color of the bag. I have one in that color that I haven’t worn in a while. This is a reminder to pull it out!

I love a good quality bag, and that red will work for so many things! Love it.

It’s so cute! Unfortunately, I’m afraid I’ll be trading in my purse for a diaper bag since my baby boy is due in a month.

I have always believe in spending money on a quality bag. I have a ton! My husband wants me to sell off some because they are overtaking my closet. LOL

I’m a red bag girl myself! For my purse and camera bag – and both are large. Once diaper bags flew out of the equation, I needed an extra strong and sturdy bag.

I’m ashamed to say that diaper bags have been my purses for years now, I’ve even been gifted some pretty awesome bags that I can’t wait to pull out once we’re FINALLY past diapers.Definitely agree with your mom. I’ve found that jewel-toned bags and the right shade of pink are practically neutrals when it comes to purses.
