Fashion Meets Function With Skip Hop Chelsea Diaper Backpack

I've been searching for the perfect diaper bag for as long as I could remember. There are a lot of things that need to be considered before purchasing one like the functionality, the design and of course the price. Me and my husband, we didn't really see eye to eye in this particular matter. He prefer manly designs and hate all the previous diaper bags that I bought. He even claimed that it emasculate his masculinity! Well technically, its not my fault that cutesy bags make him looks less macho-ish. After all, diaper bags should be as sweet as your precious one, right?

I was wrong obviously, we need something that's not only comes with all the functions to ease our travelling adventure with the little one, it's also have to be fashionable and compliment both my husband and my style effortlessly too! Sounds impossible? Not exactly because I already found mine recently and it's from Skip Hop, a global lifestyle brand for parents, babies and toddler from New York. My pick is none other than the beautiful and stylish Chelsea Downtown Chic Diaper Backpack, it's truly love at first sight!

If you're still wondering why I love it so much, it's the true definition of fashion meets function. It doesn't looks like any other diaper bags that I've come across so far at all. Should I start with the design, lovelies? I like how the faux leather details and the gold metal hardware added a refined and posh looks to the bag and yes, the material is from lightweight durable fabric and easy to clean too. Another lovely touch is the metal feet to keep the bag off the ground besides the expandable drawstring opening which really looks fancy.

This is the kind of bag that my husband don't mind caught wearing. It's black, trendy and chic, cool enough for both men and women. The backpack style let the parents to be hands-free, something that really comes in handy especially when you're dealing with a spirited toddler like us. Did I mention how gorgeous it really is, yet? Black and gold, who would have thought a diaper bag can create such drama, right? Not me obviously, hee~ Bye-bye boring looking diaper bag, say hello to Chelsea Downtown Chic Diaper Backpack!

Looking fashionable is definitely a plus point but how about the functions? Let me break it down to you some of the components from the bag that deserve your attention! First thing first, the spacious room inside the bag. You can put everything in it. By everything I mean every single thing you can think of for your child such as clothing, toys, toiletries, diapers, wipes, bottles, books, formula and the list goes on... It's great for short trip as well, it's a comfort to know that you can pretty much trust it with your kids essentials and more.

Don't get me started with the pockets! I know this can be make or break criteria for parents out there. Rest assured lovelies, this diaper bag comes with 7 pockets, they even include pocket inside of pocket for you as well. I normally used the zippered front compartment for my stuff so I don't have to worry about bringing additional bag. The two side insulated bottle pockets are great for hot and cool water meanwhile the flap pocket can be used for things like keys or maybe sunglasses. There are 3 other pockets inside too for diapers, wipes, lotions and potions.

Yes, the multiple compartments offer endless ways to organize your kids stuff while on the go but that's not all you get with this lovely diaper bag. Of course you're going to need a comfortable changing mat that match the bag too and this bag I happily announce comes with one. It's cushioned for protection, non bulky and easily folded. Last but not least is my favorite feature of them all, it's the clip-on stroller straps! What can I say, this is really a great touch indeed. It makes the bag hangs neatly on a stroller so I don't even have to carry the diaper bag if I don't want to!

All in all, I would say this is a great investment for parents like us. I like how portable it is, how it's conveniently design for everyday usage and all the tiny details that surely make big difference to me. Retail for RM549, it might be a little on the expensive side but believe me, it worth every penny! You can purchase it from leading maternity, baby and kids outlet like Mothercare and The Baby Loft or visit Skip Hop official sites listed below for more information and details. Until then, I'm wishing you a wonderful week ahead lovelies, adieu~
