My Diaper Bag (+ Clava Giveaway!)

Let’s take a look at my unconventional diaper bag by Clava today, shall we?

Except that, yeah, I don’t carry it that way since I’m juggling a super squirmy 9-month-old. I usually wear it like this:

(Top: Lands End, Trouser Jeans: Gap, Charm Necklace: John Wind, City Flats: Gap, Sunglasses, Ray-Ban.)

However, unlike the above photo, there is a 78% chance that 1) my hair is in a ponytail, 2) my stretched-out sunglasses are falling off my face as I bend over to pick up some random teething toy that Wita has pelted at a stranger, and 3) I’m yelling at Wito to SLOW DOWN as he flails wildly into pedestrian traffic. Otherwise, yep, that’s me. Me and my diaper bag. Calm, cool and collected.

Here’s my thing about diaper bags. I really don’t like them. There just a little too diaper-y for me – in looks and in function. I’ve found that the ones I’ve owned in the past have had really large openings and been very roomy on the inside, which is great for most (I guess?), but I just found myself constantly digging around in my bag while the contents get all jumbled.

When Clava contacted me about trying out a bag from their Carina Collection, I immediately knew that I wanted the Carina Zipper Tote. When I told them that I wanted to use it as a diaper bag, I’m pretty sure they considered me a FOOL, as I noticed they quickly emailed links to other bags from the line that might be more suitable for that particular function. I mean, the Zipper Tote was designed for circling the globe in style! A perfectly chic laptop/work bag!

However, my mind was made up. I was going to rock that Zipper Tote as a diaper bag, dammit. Just watch me, world!

And guess what? I love my Carina Zipper Tote as a diaper bag. Check it.

(click photo for larger image)

It fits everything I need without it looking all sausage-stuffed from the outside AND the large inside pockets keep everything from getting jumbled AND the coated cotton canvas outer material can be wiped down easily AND the interior material is waterproof (sippy cup disasters averted!) AND when I no longer need to carry a diaper bag, this puppy will still be used for years and years as an awesome tote AND the best part? It doesn’t look like a diaper bag! HOLLA.

I think you should have a Carina Tote too. (Don’t worry, I won’t force you at gunpoint to use it as a diaper bag, I promise.)

Leave a comment on this post telling me which bag from the Carina Collection is your favorite, and you will be entered to win a Carina Zipper Tote of your color choice. Get crackin’, folks! Contest ends Friday, April 1st at 6pm PST. Good luck!

    OOOO I really like that sky blue!

  • Christina

    March 28, 2011 at 10:23 am

    The Gym bag for sure! I need a ‘purse’ to replace my daiper bag, and this one or the tote would totally work, big enough to hold some of the baby stuff, not too big to carry every day!

  • lauren

    March 28, 2011 at 10:23 am

    I like the Weekender. Perfect for overnight work trips.

  • Darcey

    March 28, 2011 at 10:25 am

    I’m actually pretty in love with the zipper tote – it would be great for the work days where I’m actually NOT having to haul my laptop everywhere!

  • Jenifer

    March 28, 2011 at 10:25 am

    I’d love the triangle tote in indigo

  • Lauren

    March 28, 2011 at 10:26 am

    I’m loving the Carina Weekender in the army color. These bags rock and I would love to have a zipper tote!

  • Christina

    March 28, 2011 at 10:27 am

    The Weekender Bag speaks to me. I just like the idea of going away for a weekend. ::sigh::

  • Alicia C

    March 28, 2011 at 10:27 am

    I think the Square Pocket Tote is y favorite, but I do love the Zipper tote! :) I like it in the Cafe color.

  • Annika

    March 28, 2011 at 10:27 am

    I am totally digging the Weekender!

  • Sherin

    March 28, 2011 at 10:28 am

    Ohh, it’s a tie between the vertical tote and the zipper shoulder bag! Pregnancy brain means I am totally incapable of making a choice.

  • Jess F

    March 28, 2011 at 10:28 am

    I think the mini zip cross body could be so handy.

  • Shannon

    March 28, 2011 at 10:31 am

    I love the Zipper Tote/Shoulder Bag in Indigo. :)

  • Amelia

    March 28, 2011 at 10:32 am

    Personally I love the weekender, but I would love to win the zipper tote for my best friend to use just as you do, for she is expecting her first baby in May.

  • Michelle

    March 28, 2011 at 10:34 am

    love, love, love the zipper tote in the army color. Expecting baby number 3 in early September!

  • Tammi Marie

    March 28, 2011 at 10:34 am

    That’s really cute. I like the white Carina tote!

  • Meghan

    March 28, 2011 at 10:35 am

    It’s a tie for me between the tassel handbag and the zipper tote, they’re both so gorgeous!

  • kakaty

    March 28, 2011 at 10:35 am

    I adore the Tassel Handbag; even looks big enough to stash a single diaper and mini-pack of wipes for when the baby is older and you don’t need all the the stuff!

  • Martha

    March 28, 2011 at 10:36 am

    I agree with you, I like the Zipper Tote best. It reminds me a bit of Hayden Harnett’s Ibiza bag that I have been coveting for forever…. I used a red leather laptop bag that I bought at Marshall’s as a diaper bag until the zippers broke – I got so many compliments on that bag, it was cheaper than a nice diaper bag, and I loved it! I hate how anything associated with babies gets marked up 50%.

  • Abby

    March 28, 2011 at 10:37 am

    I love the zipper tote in Army — it’s amazing how it holds so much without looking bulky!

  • Jessica

    March 28, 2011 at 10:37 am

    I carried a diaper bag for a year but then I switched to a roomy messenger bag with pockets. Next baby, I will have no diaper bag and this is a great idea! I love the Watermelon the most!

  • Norah

    March 28, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Love the Zipper Tote! Crazy organization for a crazy first time mama to be!

  • Emily Poechman

    March 28, 2011 at 10:37 am

    I think the bag you chose, the shoulder bag/tote, would work the best for a diaper bag because of being able to wear it over your shoulder like in the picture.

    The colour I like is the stone coated canvas!

  • Priscilla

    March 28, 2011 at 10:37 am

    I love the Carina Gym Bag

  • Lauren

    March 28, 2011 at 10:38 am

    Love the pocket duffle!

  • MO

    March 28, 2011 at 10:38 am

    The navy blue is the business.

  • Lisa

    March 28, 2011 at 10:38 am

    They’re all so beautiful. I quite love the triangle bag in blue. Thank you for the chance to enter!

  • Ris

    March 28, 2011 at 10:38 am

    I LOVE the Triangle Tote–so cute!

  • bouncy

    March 28, 2011 at 10:38 am

    I like the watermelon one!

  • Jennie

    March 28, 2011 at 10:38 am

    I LOVE The Weekender! I can’t decide which color I like best, but the watermelon is so fun.

  • molly

    March 28, 2011 at 10:38 am

    I love using “non-diaper bags” for a diaper bag! This one is so awesome!!

  • Amy

    March 28, 2011 at 10:39 am

    Loving the large tote as well as the zipper tote! 2 weeks until my due date with #4…

  • Julie

    March 28, 2011 at 10:40 am

    I so need that zipper tote! We are in the process of becoming foster parents and our age range is 0-2 plus we have 1 bio son so I will need a bag that can handle everything and still look classy.

  • AC

    March 28, 2011 at 10:42 am

    Love the zipper tote in army!

  • Katie

    March 28, 2011 at 10:42 am

    I’m with you, the zipper tote is my favorite.

  • bethany actually

    March 28, 2011 at 10:44 am

    I like their cosmetic/toiletry cases!

  • Kelli

    March 28, 2011 at 10:46 am

    I also seem to be obsessed with the zipper tote. I feel like it would make the hassles of a daily commute on public transportation a million times easier — and stylish!

  • findingmagnolia

    March 28, 2011 at 10:48 am

    I love so many of these bags, but right now I’m trying to upgrade our luggage, so I’m most drawn to the Weekender. I love the structure of these bags and the great color choices.

  • Marianne

    March 28, 2011 at 10:48 am

    Aaaaaand, now I want that zipper tote. To use as a diaper bag. BAD.

  • Amanda

    March 28, 2011 at 10:49 am

    I SOOOO need a new diaper bag. I hate diaper bags as well. I must just carry too much shit b/c the ones I’ve used in the past have been too small or I can’t get them closed after I’ve shoved all my stuff in there. I love the look of this and I LOVE that it has the messenger type of strap. I would definitely go with the same color your chose.

  • Elizabeth

    March 28, 2011 at 10:49 am

    Those are some beautiful bags! I like your zipper tote, in the cafe color.

  • Erinn

    March 28, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Love the weekender… and the zip tote!

  • Janna

    March 28, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Oooh – I love the zipper tote! And I’m with you on disliking most diaper bags.

  • Beth

    March 28, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Definitely the Carina- I would use it for a diaper bag too! Even my husband has mentioned that I need to think about a new bag- the other one is too worn from my 22 month old.

  • Lauren

    March 28, 2011 at 10:51 am

    I love the baby blue one! Gorgeous.

  • Celeste

    March 28, 2011 at 10:51 am

    I love both the Vertical Tote and the Zipper Tote. And I would totally use the Zipper Tote as a diaper bag too! My second is due in June and I’m on the hunt.

  • Melissa E

    March 28, 2011 at 10:52 am

    Oh, I love the gym bag, but I wish it had a longer handle. That being said, i definitely LOVE the Zipper Tote. Gorgeous! (And it will be used as a diaper bag, seeing as I’m due with my second in September).

  • BreAnn

    March 28, 2011 at 10:52 am

    Oh the weekender is great, but I think my favorite is the square pocket tote. It’s perfect!

  • Amanda

    March 28, 2011 at 10:53 am

    OH WOW! LOVE that cross body strap!! That would be sooooo perfect while I’m trying to carry my ginormous baby! This is def on my wishlist now…swoooooon.

  • renee

    March 28, 2011 at 10:54 am

    i’m loving the tan one you’re sporting!

  • Navigating the Mothership

    March 28, 2011 at 10:54 am

    Ooh, I like the the look of that gym bag!

  • Miss E

    March 28, 2011 at 10:55 am

    I love the Zipper Tote and also the Weeekender Bag! I’m currently looking for a diaper bag, so I’d be super excited to win!

  • Amy

    March 28, 2011 at 10:56 am

    Yes! Love the black zipper tote for our little girl due the end of April! Great idea! Thank-you!

  • Tracy

    March 28, 2011 at 10:56 am

    Ooh, I love the black. My diaper bag lives in my car and I have a “quick stash” of stuff in my purse. I invariably always need something from my diaper bag which either a) makes me go back to my car or b) remember it and then stuff it into my purse making my purse look huge.

    Not cute.

  • Laney

    March 28, 2011 at 10:56 am

    Love the Zipper Tote/Shoulderbag. My inner New Yorker says black but I actually really love the army coated canvas that you have. I’m pregnant with my first and desperate for a non-diaper-y diaper bag that will still allow me to look chic & pulled together (despite, yes, a messy ponytail and yoga pants.) I think that one does the trick!

  • Jen

    March 28, 2011 at 10:56 am

    OOo, love these. Esp. the cream one on the bottom left. I’m about to upgrade from one kid to two, and I’d love to upgrade my diaper bag at the same time!!

  • Amy Smith

    March 28, 2011 at 10:57 am

    I’m with you on the zipper tote. My last “diaper bag” was very similar (though not nearly as cute) and I simply LOVED having a space for everything…instead of a big black-hole-of-a-mess! I would love one for baby #3 arriving in August!!

  • Emily

    March 28, 2011 at 10:57 am

    I’m lovin’ both the zipper tote and the and the square pocket crossbody. such great looking bags!!

  • Kim

    March 28, 2011 at 10:57 am

    i think my fave IS the zipper tote. though i’m also drawn to the gym and weekender bags.

  • andrea

    March 28, 2011 at 10:58 am

    I’m going to need a new diaper bag in a few months so I’d definitely go with the zipper tote. If I’m not the lucky winner I’ll be purchasing one of these for myself!

  • denita

    March 28, 2011 at 11:00 am

    I really like the Weekender in the collection…although the shoulder bag is a close second.
    I like the army green color the best I believe…although the watermelon might be just amazing.

  • Kimberly Z.

    March 28, 2011 at 11:00 am

    I love the Leather Zip Tote-Shoulder Bag , it would be a great work bag, but I love the colors that the Zipper Tote comes in!

  • Lexi

    March 28, 2011 at 11:00 am

    My favorite is ALSO the zipper tote…in your color combination. It’s so great looking! But you already knew that.

  • Shawna

    March 28, 2011 at 11:01 am

    I totally NEED the Carina Zipper tote. NEEEEEDDDD!

  • AmandaL

    March 28, 2011 at 11:01 am

    I love the zipper tote, too! So cute. Perfect timing as my current (over-loved) purse is falling apart!

  • Amy T

    March 28, 2011 at 11:02 am

    I absolutely love the Gym bag!

  • Alissa

    March 28, 2011 at 11:03 am

    My favourite is probably the one you love as well :) I also like any of the cross-body ones as well .

  • Julie

    March 28, 2011 at 11:03 am

    After seeing you with the zipper tote, how could I not fall in love? So cute!

  • Katrina

    March 28, 2011 at 11:04 am

    Am I allowed to choose the Zipper Tote as my favorite? It’s so great! I also like the Zip Crossbody. I’d love to use the Tote as a travel bag. I can see myself now, navigating the markets of Buenos Aires with ease – everything I need conveniently tucked away in a zippered pocket.

  • laurenmcwilliams

    March 28, 2011 at 11:05 am

    just had baby #2 and my old diaper bag so does not work this time around! i need a bag with extra room for not only my 5 week old, but also snacks and a sippy cup for my 3 year old!

  • CarrieO

    March 28, 2011 at 11:05 am

    I like the Weekender, but I like the Zipper Tote – especially to use as a diaper bag. I need a different one, mine’s not working out so well.

  • The Maiden Metallurgist

    March 28, 2011 at 11:06 am

    Love it! I like the olive one you have, I’d use it as a diaper bag too, I’m due in 1 days!

  • Elizabeth

    March 28, 2011 at 11:06 am

    Wow, I love them all but I’d probably pick the cafe color.

  • Alice

    March 28, 2011 at 11:07 am

    I love the zipper tote as well as the Carina square cross body. I think the zipper tote is the winner though.

  • Jenny

    March 28, 2011 at 11:07 am

    I would totally use the zipper tote for work! I love, love, love the (light) blue one!

  • Melis

    March 28, 2011 at 11:07 am

    The zipper tote is my favorite, and I especially love the color you selected. This will be perfect as a carry on for my travel-heavy job!

  • Alexandra

    March 28, 2011 at 11:07 am

    I think the Carina Weekender and the Carina Tassel Handbag are both absolutely adorable!

  • MommyTime

    March 28, 2011 at 11:07 am

    I love the zipper tote you have (in ivory, to make me feel like I’ve emerged from winter), but for something small and springy, the tassel handbag in powder blue with a red stripe is FANTASTIC too. So many great choices, so hard to choose!

  • SaraMcDevitt

    March 28, 2011 at 11:08 am

    The crossbody! Good for concerts!

  • Lauren

    March 28, 2011 at 11:08 am

    All the bags are cute, but honestly the zipper tote looks the most useful!

  • Abigail

    March 28, 2011 at 11:09 am

    I love the Weekender bag but I would probably get more use out of the zipper tote (sans diapers)!

  • Christy

    March 28, 2011 at 11:09 am

    I love the Carina Vertical Tote.

  • Ann

    March 28, 2011 at 11:09 am

    Tie between the vertical tote and the zipper tote/shoulderbag!

    March 28, 2011 at 11:11 am

    The zipper tote/shoulder bag is totally what I’ve been looking for! I’d love to have one of those …. perfect for work, for shopping, for travel!

  • Mama Bub

    March 28, 2011 at 11:13 am

    Love the zipper tote in cafe, or indigo, or oh, crap.

  • Gabriella

    I actually like the Carina Zipper Bag the best! I’d have a tough time choosing one colour though! xo, Gabriella

  • reena

    Love the one in white with red details. I wonder if I can get away with white with my 8 month old.

  • caroline

    LOVE the zipper tote. Not a mama but tend to carry tons of stuff with me at all times, so that would be perfect!

    OH! I heart this bag….I would chose the stone color with the adorable olive green accents. LOVE IT!

  • Allison

    March 28, 2011 at 11:13 am

    I am a diaper bag hater as well……I have only used my super fabulous cross body purse for baby #2. This looks great…I think I would go with the red to be dramatic!!!

  • ppp

    March 28, 2011 at 11:14 am

    LOVE the zipper tote and i would SO copy you and use it as a diaper bag! Its great!

  • brandi

    March 28, 2011 at 11:14 am

    I love the Weekender! But I think I need the Zipper Tote as a diaper bag, obviously, since I just found out I’m pregnant for the first time. :)

  • Marianne

    March 28, 2011 at 11:14 am

    I’d go for the weekender in either the army or the blue. Super fun and a good bag to practice travelling with carry on only with!

  • Valerie

    March 28, 2011 at 11:15 am

    I have to say I am WITH YOU on this one…every diaper bag I have ever seen has made me kind of want to gag. Even the bags that claim to be ‘un-diaper bag-ish’ are still wrong. This is the perfect solution.

  • Jess

    March 28, 2011 at 11:16 am

    The Weekender is very cute!

  • Korinna

    March 28, 2011 at 11:16 am

    I love that zipper tote in turquoise, but that gym bag is tempting too. Adorable!

    March 28, 2011 at 11:22 am

    My fav is the Carina Triangle Tote in Indigo.

  • Christina

    March 28, 2011 at 11:22 am

    You have just sold me on the zipper tote. I just got another tote and it hasn’t been exactly what I wanted, and now you have me craving this one. Thanks for sharing it!

  • ashley

    I think the zipper tote is my favorite, though the Mini Zip Crossbody is super cute as well. I love all the colors, but I think the Army is my favorite!

  • Stacey

    March 28, 2011 at 11:26 am

    The Weekender or Zipper Tote, I think.

  • Angie elliott

    March 28, 2011 at 11:26 am

    I love the all black zipper tote for work and airports! I could easily stick a small purse inside along with my bonanza of magazines and ipad and not look like a bag lady. Great giveaway!

    I love the army colored zipper tote!

  • Jen

    March 28, 2011 at 11:31 am

    I love the Carina Square Pocket Crossbody, but the zipper tote is awesome as well. I LOVE all the color choices. Hard to choose!

    Due in May with my first baby and currently in the throes of the great diaper bag debate. I LOVE this bag – it is perfect. I’m thinking I’ve found my bag – Carina Zipper Tote Indigo.

  • shannon

    March 28, 2011 at 11:33 am

    well, if I had to choose, it would be the zipper tote in indigo, but I also really like the square tote in indigo and the triangle tote in army.

    ps – what is that cute little teether/toy in your bag? it looks like the same rubber type thingy as a Sophie Giraffe?

  • JillyL

    March 28, 2011 at 11:33 am

    I love th Carina Zipper Tote/Shoulderbag in Cafe Coated Canvas. I could use a great diaper bag. I HATE diaper bags, so hard to find anything.

  • Adrienne

    March 28, 2011 at 11:33 am

    I LOVE the zipper tote! In army green please! :)

  • cck

    March 28, 2011 at 11:34 am

    I am in hot love with the Square Pocket Tote. Cute!

  • AppleTree

    March 28, 2011 at 11:34 am

    The weekender is super cute.

  • Gabriella

    March 28, 2011 at 11:36 am

    Love the white one!! Although anyone would do ;-)

  • Wendi McCombs

    March 28, 2011 at 11:37 am

    The Zipper Tote in Army coated canvas.

  • Jannette

    March 28, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Love the zipper tote — similar to my normal purse that I use and I love the “Cafe Coated Canvas” color or the “Army Coated Canvas” one that you’re sporting! Looks very functional!

  • Kelly

    March 28, 2011 at 11:38 am

    I think you have done it perfectly with the zipper tote in Army.

  • Tess

    March 28, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Luckily for me, my fave from the collection is the zipper tote! As a poor grad student, I would love to win this bag and be able to tote all my medical student wares around the hospital in style!

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

  • Rebecca (Bearca)

    March 28, 2011 at 11:40 am

    That zipper tote is PERFECTION. It would definitely be my pick…

  • claudia

    March 28, 2011 at 11:40 am

    That Zipper Tote is the one. Never heard of Clava, but will look into their lines. I’m always looking for a great new bag.

  • Jessica

    March 28, 2011 at 11:41 am

    Love it! You’re right about conventional diaper bags, too. This looks perfect!

  • Sarah

    March 28, 2011 at 11:41 am

    Oh, now I have really bad bag envy. I’ve been looking for a bag just like this for weeks and weeks and making hubby crazy. I want cross body with shoulder option (because chasing a toddler requires both hands and shoulder bags don’t stay put), outside pocket, light colored interior so I can see what the heck is inside. This meets all my requirements except price, of course. ;)
    I hope I win!

  • Christy M

    March 28, 2011 at 11:41 am

    The zipper tote is awesome! That blue color is seriously making me salivate. I’m right there with you about the diaper-bag-look. Ewww.

  • Leah E

    March 28, 2011 at 11:42 am

    I love the zipper tote. I’m a sucker for a bag with lots of pockets and can be carried both on the shoulder/arm and across the body.

  • Sarah Brown

    March 28, 2011 at 11:42 am

    I’m loving that Triangle Tote… and in blue, surprisingly? I can only carry bags that have straps like that, all others drive me crazy.

  • hallie

    March 28, 2011 at 11:42 am

    oh my. my baby boy gage is a week old and i would die for that bag in the army green!

  • Sarah Viola

    March 28, 2011 at 11:43 am

    OH MAN, do I want that zipper tote. I think I’d choose Army, like yours. Or maybe watermelon?

  • natalie

    March 28, 2011 at 11:44 am

    I love the Carina zipper tote in the army color! It’s the perfect size for my diaper bag needs!

  • Stacey

    March 28, 2011 at 11:44 am

    I’d love the army coated canvas just like you have right there. Snazzy!

  • Chels

    March 28, 2011 at 11:44 am

    I love the tote in cafe coated canvas!!! What a great looking bag!

  • Payal

    March 28, 2011 at 11:44 am

    Definitely the zipper tote. I have the same problem – hate carrying a diaper bag.

  • Rowenna

    March 28, 2011 at 11:45 am

    I love the zipper tote – maybe in a blue? I have the same problem with losing things in a bag that’s too big, but I also hate something that’s too small or has too many tiny pockets. This one looks perfect!

  • Stephanie

    March 28, 2011 at 11:46 am

    I love the Carina Tassel bag. They are all very cute!

  • FrauB

    March 28, 2011 at 11:46 am

    I want to pretend like I am the Triangle Tote kind of chick, but with three under 4 years old, Zipper Tote here I come. I have The. Worst. diaper bag, leftover from my messenger bag days in NYC. This would be a HUGE update for my (non-existent) look.

  • Michelle

    March 28, 2011 at 11:48 am

    Definetely 100% the zipper tote. I’ll go a step further and state my claim on the army-green one like yours. LOVE IT!

  • April

    March 28, 2011 at 11:48 am

    I’ve been looking for a diaper bag (I’m due in July with my first) that isn’t baby bag like and can also be used as a travel bag. I love how you use the Carina Zipper Tote for a diaper bag. It is my favourite in the collection as well.

  • lindsaywillman

    March 28, 2011 at 11:48 am

    my favorite is the carina zipper tote in army. it’s lovely.

  • mommaruthsays

    March 28, 2011 at 11:49 am

    It’s definitely a tie between the Carina Tassle Tote and the Carina Zipper Tote for me! I love them both!!!

    Super-great giveaway, I hope I win!

  • Lauren

    March 28, 2011 at 11:49 am

    I like the zipper tote. While I wouldn’t be using it for a diaper bag (for a while at least), it looks really cute and functional! Love!

  • Jessica

    March 28, 2011 at 11:49 am

    I think I’d have to pick the Gym Bag in turquoise. I love the shape of it, and that I could use it for my diaper bag and regular bag. And the white handles, the turquoise color and red accents? GORGEOUS.

  • Gillian

    March 28, 2011 at 11:50 am

    Ummm, am I allowed to like all of their bags?! The Weekender is fantastic. I am always on the look out for a classy bag that I can use on short trips. Oh and the clutch. I need a new one of those. And then there is the Pocket Duffel. Because I hate suitcases. Passionately.

    The Zipper Tote is lovely, and I how it looks so functional. I’d be hard pressed to pick between the green you have and the dark blue. Both are beautiful colours.

  • Adrienne

    March 28, 2011 at 11:53 am

    I too love the zipper tote! I have 4 kids and need a bag to hold all sorts of things!

  • Lynne

    March 28, 2011 at 11:56 am

    The weekender bag looks awesome!

  • Mary Sue

    March 28, 2011 at 11:56 am

    I want the exact same one as you! These are so cute and would also work as a camera bag with a padded insert.

  • Michelle

    March 28, 2011 at 11:56 am

    I love the black one for my sister who is currently baking my nephew – due in June!

    Love your simple yet chic outfit!

  • Kate

    March 28, 2011 at 11:57 am

    I love the zipper tote, too, but my second favorite is the weekender! Neither of which would be used as a diaper bag. Both in Army, please and thank you.

  • Bree

    March 28, 2011 at 11:57 am

    Zipper Tote for sure! I’ve been looking for an upgrade since we are adding a second BOY to our bunch. Definitely indigo for me! :)

  • sarah

    March 28, 2011 at 11:57 am

    ooh i love this and I don’t even have a baby :) I would become a nanny and carry it as my diaper bag for someone else’s baby if I won, though. I promise you that! Army coated canvas, please and thank you!

  • Rose

    March 28, 2011 at 11:58 am

    Although maybe totally impractical for a diaper bag (which I need as I’m due May 1st – yay!), I’d pick the zipper tote in the stone color.

  • Em

    March 28, 2011 at 11:59 am

    Love the whole look! I’d pick the army/red combo, too.

  • Medrie

    March 28, 2011 at 11:59 am

    I’d choose the zipper tote in ice blue!

  • bshine

    March 28, 2011 at 12:00 pm

    The army one definitely. Yay new diaper bag!!

  • Corey

    March 28, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Oooooooohhhhhh! The zipper tote in red or blue. Gorgeous!

  • Abby - Bright Yellow World

    March 28, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    The Weekender is glorious!!! I love the army color.

  • Kristen

    March 28, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    I’m going to be a copycat and say the Zipper Tote is by far my fave!!! I have 3 boys six and under, so I’d be rocking it as a baby/toddler bag for now! :)

  • Jolana

    March 28, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    I love the Zipper tote and would love the dark brown one.

  • Rach

    March 28, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    The zipper tote looks pretty perfect as a purse and a mom carry all.

  • Jill

    March 28, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    That Zipper Tote is the epitome of awesome. I love it.

  • Rene

    March 28, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    I am unexpectedly drawn to the light blue.

  • Samantha

    March 28, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Love the Zipper Tote!

  • Rhi

    March 28, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    I think the Zipper Tote is my favorite!

  • Jen B

    March 28, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    I love the Carina Weekender!!

  • Dawn K.

    March 28, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    Definitely the zipper tote! The Indigo would be my color of choice.

  • Melissa

    March 28, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    I’m drawn to the Triangle tote but they’re all fabulous!

  • Amanda

    March 28, 2011 at 12:13 pm

    I love the Vertical Tote! Great idea to use the zipper tote for a diaper bag.

  • Pam

    March 28, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    I LOVE the zipper tote and would totally use that as a diaper bag.

  • Jamie

    March 28, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    Loving the crossbody! It’s hard finding something small like that that’s actually cute.

  • abd

    March 28, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    The Carina Zipper Tote would be perfect for grad school and fieldwork. I usually haul around a mini-computer, a water bottle, wallet, cell phone, pens, and other junk and this would be the perfect size bag! I love the light brown and light blue colors.

  • Brooke R.

    March 28, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    The Zipper Tote has got to be my favorite as well!

  • Kris

    March 28, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    I kind of like that Clava myself. And totally would use it as a diaper bag, and then as a laptop bag once I no longer needed the diaper bag (someday in the far distant future when I will no longer need to be carrying diapers, changes of clothes or someone elses stuff. It could happen, right? RIGHT?!?!?)

  • Red Boots

    March 28, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    Definitely the zipper tote! It’s gorgeous and so practical (and the two don’t always go together!). x

  • Mary O

    March 28, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    Oh yeah, I would totally go for the tote/shoulder bag too. Those colors are delectable. And I love a cross-body strap.

  • Crisanne

    March 28, 2011 at 12:21 pm

    I LOVE the zipper tote!! With 3 kids, I find I always need room for extra stuff but I hate the jumbled mess of so many larger bags.

  • TLR

    March 28, 2011 at 12:22 pm

    They are all awesome! Love the Tassel and the Weekender and the Vertical and the…. Thanks for the contest!

  • stickyheels

    March 28, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    Ohoh oh oh I love both the one YOU have, the Carina Zipper Tote and I also love the Mini Zip Crossbody!

  • Shannon

    March 28, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    Loving the zipper tote as diaper bag – it would be awesome for me as a new mama!

  • Tina

    March 28, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    I love the olive one and the light blue!
    Best,
    Tina

  • Christina

    March 28, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    I was just online looking for a non-diaper bag looking bag to use as a diaper bag ;) I love it!!!

  • Kate A

    March 28, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    This is perfect timing – I’ve been looking for a new diaper bag for spring/summer and the Zipper Tote in stone coated canvas would be perfect!

  • molly

    March 28, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    I love the white one on the bottom left! It would be a huge upgrade from the tote I use now where toys get lost with diapers, etc.

  • Cheryl

    March 28, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    I am with you on the diaper bag dilemma! I love bags with the cross body strap. It helps relieve my over-worked shoulder.

    I am torn between the navy, white, or army color. Or maybe my usual cream.

  • Lana

    March 28, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Love the mini square cross body tote, but really all the totes are great!

    Great colour selection too!

  • Katie Lee

    March 28, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Obviously white makes everything look so amazing, but in a purse it would get too dirty. I like the color you have because it goes with EVERYTHING!

  • Gretchen Burleson

    March 28, 2011 at 12:34 pm

    I like the zipper tote in indigo! And I’m expecting twins any day now and would love a stylish bag!

    oh my – they are all beautiful!
    I love the green, the one that you are modeling so hotly :)
    and let me tell you – i need a new diaper bag.
    My current hot pink bag really is not right with my 8 month old son.
    Cheers.

  • duchessbelle

    March 28, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    The weekender in the blue coated canvas would be amazing

  • Maggie

    March 28, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    You look so fashionable with that bag! No one would know that it houses diapers.

    I love that zipper bag and the blue with red details looks absolutely luscious!

  • Toni

    March 28, 2011 at 12:40 pm

    Well, you have pretty much sold me on the zipper tote, but I also really like the square pocket tote. Thanks!

  • Emily

    March 28, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    I like the Carina pocket duffle – it comes in Watermelon! So perfect for an overnight bag.

  • Emilie-VT

    March 28, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    um, ya—the one you are caring happens to be on the top of my list :)

  • The Tutugirl

    March 28, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    The Zipper Tote would be perfect for my job this summer, and for carrying to school next year!

  • Mrs. Smith

    March 28, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    While I really love several of them (Weekender, tassel handbag!), the exact one you have is just perfection! I adore it. That’s absolutely the one I’d pick.

  • Krista

    March 28, 2011 at 12:49 pm

    Love the zipper tote in Stone, also the weekender! Great bags

  • Janssen

    March 28, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    You better believe that I will follow your good lead in taste and choose the same one you did. In dark blue.

  • Sara

    March 28, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    The zipper tote looks like the one for me. Perfect for my stuff, the 3 year old and 5 week old’s stuff. Can’t wait for the day when I get to stop carrying other people’s stuff.

  • sizzle

    March 28, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    Leave it to you to turn a stylish tote into a diaper bag. I expect nothing less from you!

    I am baby-less but love a good tote. I’m partial to the tote myself – particularly the ice blue one with red accents (adore that color combo!).

  • Kirsten

    March 28, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    I think the zipper tote is my favorite. I am totally thinking about copying you and using it as a diaper bag for my upcoming arrivals (twins in May!).

  • Danielle

    March 28, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    I love that zipper tote! I have a 9-month old also (and a 6 year old and a 4 year old)! I MUST have this bag! (Thanks!!)

  • nap

    March 28, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    I want to love the mini zip crossbody but sadly it’s too small for all the stuff I tote around. The normal crossbody is more my size :)

  • Kate

    March 28, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    I would love the Carina square pocket crossbody.

    I really wish the website had views of the inside of the bags–that would be most helpful!

  • rayshell cook

    March 28, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    Love the Cafe Coated Canvas! Would really come in handy once our new peincess arrives in July! Even now it would get good use as my everyday bag is rather large.

  • Amy

    March 28, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    I love the Carina Square Pocket Crossbody but it was really hard to choose just one.

  • Christine H.

    March 28, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    Zipper tote, definitely. I would use it for a laptop bag.

  • Jen

    March 28, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    I love how you’ve used the tote as a diaper bag!
    I am enamored with the triangle tote… so cute and I can still stash a diaper and small pack of wipes for my daughter.

  • erica d.

    March 28, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    I am loving the Cafe color! So handy with all the storage areas. Great bag!

    My favourite is the zipper tote too – especially in Indigo.

  • Mon

    March 28, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    I’ve just been looking for a tote to bring on a plane with me (in addition to my carryon). I love the Carina Tote (that light blue is amazing, I’m not normally a light blue type of gal)…although the Weekender is pretty sweet too.

  • Elizabeth

    March 28, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    I love the zipper tote in the army. I have been looking everywhere for a diaper bag (baby due in 4 weeks!!) that can function as a diaper bag without looking like one. What a great find!

  • Rachel

    March 28, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    I could not agree with you more. I hate diaper bags that look like diaper bags. I’m always glad to get past that initial stage where blow-outs happen so I can just throw a bag of diapers and wipes into my purse.

    These are really cute and I think the one you picked would be perfect for a diaper bag. And the olive is a good choice so that the husband will actually carry it. Although that never happens, so i might as well get the baby blue. :)

  • Camille

    March 28, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    I love the Carina Gym Bag. It’s super cute!

  • Oma

    March 28, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    the zipper tote in cafe is cooler than just about everything i own.

  • Cheri

    March 28, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    I love the triangle tote but would love to win this one too!

  • Andrea

    March 28, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Zipper tote in indigo is gorgeous!

  • RebeccaW

    March 28, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    I like the black one! :) Using that as a diaper bag is brilliant I hated my big ugly diaper bag.

  • Amber

    March 28, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    They are all beautiful, but my fav is the triangle tote, followed closely by the zipper tote.

  • Christine

    March 28, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    I need a diaper bag (though it cannot look like one!) since I am expecting a baby and I love the brown one.

  • Emily B

    March 28, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    I like the square pocket crossbody, and also all of the other ones. How to choose?

  • dawn

    March 28, 2011 at 1:29 pm

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with the zippered tote and I whole heartedly agree that traditional diaper bags are for the birds!

  • souphead

    March 28, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    torn between the weekender and the gym bag, but I love the zipper tote in Army.

  • Linette

    March 28, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Ah, only wish I had known of these when I was in diaper bag carrying days. Loving the Carina Zip Crossbody.

  • Angela

    March 28, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    I am not familiar with these bags, but after seeing the zipper tote, I have decided I need one! I am a very compartment-type person, so I think the interior of the bag is perfect. Indigo is my choice. :-)

  • Morgan

    March 28, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    I’ve been looking for a less-diapery bag with more internal organization – this looks awesome! I am a fan of the olive/red combo.,.or maybe basic black so the husband won’t mind carrying it….

  • Mary

    March 28, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    I’m going to be a grandma at the end of June and will need my own diaper bag – this one would be perfect!!! What a beautiful bag!! I’d love it in simple black to go with everything and stay clean.

  • Erin L. Thiele

    March 28, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    I really like the Weekender, but sometimes if I have a bigger bag, I’ll overpack and then I hate carrying the heavy sucker. The zipper tote seems great for everyday for sure. And I’m all about a diaper bag that doesn’t look like a diaper bag.

  • Robin

    March 28, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    I think the zipper tote is my favorite! I also like the square tote. The color you have is great. I’ve always thought that the whole “diaper bag” thing is just a marketing ploy…you just need a sturdy bag with pockets that’s easy to clean!

  • Leyre

    March 28, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    Love the zipper tote, but I also love the mini cross body bag!

  • Taylor

    March 28, 2011 at 1:43 pm

    Oh, I am so utterly torn between the dark blue one and the light blue one. Can I have both? Pretty please?

  • Windy

    March 28, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    I love the weekender in indigo or the zipper tote in stone. Great bags!

  • Amy

    March 28, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    LOVE the Carina Zipper Tote in Army! Since I am due with #2 in 3 weeks, this will work perfectly as a super-stylish diaper bag!

  • cassie

    March 28, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    Love the zipper tote, and the color of yours is gorgeous!

  • Keri

    March 28, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    This collection of bags is SO my style – thanks for sharing! I love the zipper bag (in either of the blue shades), but I also love the triangle tote (although I suppose they are very similar). You have spectacular taste!

  • Lindsay

    March 28, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    I actually think the Zipper Tote IS my favorite – particularly the sage-y green one you’re holding in your photos. I also love the Weekender…if ever there is a chance to get away for a weekend, right?!

  • liz

    March 28, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    The zipper tote is my favorite. How pretty and useful!

    impossible to choose…but if forced to i’d pick the gym bag in black. woot!

    I’m loving the Carina Zipper Tote – Army color!

  • Lisa

    March 28, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    I like the black to go w/everything or maybe the red!

  • Aristella

    March 28, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Definitely the zipper tote. I need a new diaperbag and how I hate actual diaper bag. How I wish this were in my price rage.

  • Jenni

    March 28, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Definitely the Carina Zipper Tote. It looks perfect!

  • Nancy

    March 28, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    The zipper tote is so cute! So many pockets! Though the vertical tote is a close second!

  • Jenna Z

    March 28, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    I really really like the Carina Weekender! In Blue canvas!

  • Cara

    March 28, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    I love this zipper tote! I would absolutely love it in the shade of green that you are modeling! I’m a sucker for larger bags with tons of space for storage. No kids yet, but I could totally see using it in the future as a chic diaper bag :)

    Oooh, I love the Triangle tote, but I wish it came in Watermelon. That being said, I’d make out with the Zipper tote (in Watermelon) if I was to win one. And then I’d fill it full of diapers and stuff and attempt to look as stylish as you do while toting my 6 month old around. In my stylish hair that hasn’t seen a cut since before I had said child, so probably not so stylish.

  • Whitney

    March 28, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    The weekender is so cute! But I’d take the one you have in stone in a heartbeat too.

  • Christine

    March 28, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    I want the one you have. So cute and versatile!

  • Vanessa

    March 28, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    I love the same one you’re using and would totally use it as a diaper bag as well!

  • angie

    March 28, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    tough call…there are a ton of great ones, but i’d say either the zipper tote or square pocket tote are my faves! great colors too. crossing my fingers…i could use an (un)diaper bag!

  • Erin

    March 28, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    I think the zipper tote is my favorite with the gym bag a very close second!

  • Miranda

    March 28, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    I have to say the zipper tote is actually my favorite- making the prospect of winning one that much more exciting!

  • Sarhar

    March 28, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Totally love it in white!

  • kerrie

    March 28, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    ps and you wear it well too!

  • Kristen M.

    March 28, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    Love them all….but I am with you! All of my gifted diaper bags gathered dust while other bags really fit the bill if they were washable and full of pockets.

  • katherine

    March 28, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    Zipper tote in army ftw! Perfect for a law student now…maybe a diaper bag later :)

  • Nicole

    March 28, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Oooo! I love the stone! I am 8 weeks pregnant and it would be AWESOME if this turned out to be the very first baby related item I own. LOL

  • Brooke

    March 28, 2011 at 3:04 pm

  • Melissa

    March 28, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    Love the Carina Weekender, as well as the Zipper Tote. Both would be great for travel. Am looking for a new carry on bag after my trusty backpack wore thin on this last trip.

  • kirsten

    March 28, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    Love all of them! But either the shoulder tote or the tassel handbag would be perfect for me right now. Large enough to function as a diaper bag, but still a real purse/ hand bag
    love them all!

  • Kimberly

    March 28, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    That dark blue zipper tote neeeeds to be mine!

  • Mint

    March 28, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    The cafe coated canvas zipper tote looks like the BEST CARRY-ON EVAH!!!

  • birdie

    March 28, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    Zipper tote for sure! I love the light blue/aqua color.

  • Elena

    March 28, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    OOOh, I love the weekender bag, but the zipper tote would be perfect for a diaper bag too! Thanks for the awesome giveaway~

  • Amy A.

    March 28, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    Ooh! Love the zippered tote in cream or gray. I’ve bee looking for a new diaper bag (expecting number 3 in 5 weeks) and I’m happy to hear that this zippered tote is Whoorl-endorsed to be used as a diaper bag!

  • tv

    March 28, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    BIG fan of the zipper tote. BIGGER fan of the top handle AND cross body option. The zippered top & light weight material the deal. Living in a big city + mass trans + having a lot of stuff = this would be the perfect bag.

  • Manda

    March 28, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    I love the Weekender AND the Zipper Tote (since I’m traveling with two in diapers right now, the bigger the better and a zipper is a must). Thanks for inspiring me to be stylish as a mom once again, Sarah … I have to KEEP TRYING! :)

  • Ashley

    March 28, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    The photo of the interior of that bag made me shiver – Purse/Diaper Bag HEAVEN! For an organizer by heart, a well kept bag is a dream, I’m officially IN LOVE! However, it’s a toss between the Carina Tassle and the Carina Triangle.

    Maybe I should just tell my husband that I need one of each, then I’ll never buy another purse again….or at least until next Fall when fashion demands a change!

  • Valerie

    March 28, 2011 at 3:20 pm

    I would love the Carina Zipper Tote/Shoulderbag. I desperately need a new work bag!

  • Roxanne

    March 28, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    The Carina Weekender is my fave, but really I’d take any of them. :)

  • Michelle

    March 28, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    I love the Carina Foldover Clutch but would love the Zipper Tote to gift to my sister who is preggers with her 1st baby!

  • Sarah

    March 28, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    I like the vertical tote!

  • Andrea

    March 28, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    oooh! I’d love to ditch my Skip Hop (even though it’s a great bag) and look way cooler with this bag! I think you got the best one in the collection – although the gym bag is pretty cute, too :)

  • Heather Ben

    March 28, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    I am loving the gym bag, but it doesn’t have the cross-body strap. So, I think i would have to go to the weekender. But i totally love the zipper as well. all for different needs! in black…

  • Alecia

    March 28, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    I love the Carina zipper tote too. Exactly my kind of bag… and I’ll be using it as a diaper bag as well. I too love lots of pockets for the bags I use as diaper bags. Everything in its place. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Jenn Bo

    March 28, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    The Triangle Tote is cute! The perfect size of a purse I would normally use.

    I am expecting my first baby soon (girl!) and have had no luck finding a diaper bag that isn’t so diaper bag looking… The inside photo of the bag you are using was helpful… so I’d have to say I would be honored to carry that thing around as my diaper bag!

  • Sarah C.

    March 28, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    The dark blue, so dreamy!

  • Claire H.

    March 28, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    I can’t decide between the Zipper Tote/Shoulderbag and Large tote- love the look and function!!

  • Romona

    March 28, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    nice pockets. i think i like the army coated canvas the best.

  • Carrisa

    March 28, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    The zipper tote really is the best. And you nailed it with your color choice. I really like the light blue coated canvas with the red zippers. I think I could pull that off

  • Grete

    March 28, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    So cute! And you should definitely be on their website as a bag-model. Love your ensemble!

    The Carina Weekender seems like a handy-size bag, but I’d love the zipper-tote, too, also to double as a diaper bag. The Army color is my fav, followed by the sky blue.

  • Amy C.

    March 28, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    Love the zipper tote – the white (or stone???) with the red zipper accents…so cute for summer!

  • Kate Robinson

    March 28, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    I NEED the sky blue zipper tote!

  • Page

    March 28, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    It was love at first sight when I spied the zipper tote in your hands! ZIpper tote like yours FTW! And we are in the bizness of making our first baby now, so wouldn’t it just be the bee’s knees to have a stylish diaper bag (esp since my plans for boot camp have been FOILED)?

    Hooray! And you look fabulous!

  • mommymae

    March 28, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    that zipper tote is totes cute. red would be delectable!!

  • Josie

    love the indigo one. I’m so in love with indigo these days.

    You look great!

  • Crystal

    March 28, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    I love the army color zippered tote, but white and ice blue are also nice. That bag would come in handy for so many different including work, baby, beach it would be hard to decide which to use it for!

    Ooh. Tie between the Zipper tote and the Weekender, but Zipper tote probably would win that showdown for me. Love these cute bags! (And your ensemble! )

    Thank you for the zipper-tote review! I was starting to think that I would be stuck with “diapery” diaper bags forEVER. Definitely love the zipper tote (the mini crossbody isn’t too bad either).

  • Anna

    March 28, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    zipper tote that you have. I need that!!

  • Danielle

    Cute look by the way!

  • Mia

    March 28, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    You look amazing, mama! And I think I’d pick the same one you’re rocking, though as I’m childless, I’d use it as a school/everyday bag. Awesome giveaway!

  • MariaB

    March 28, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Oooh, you totally picked the best one- fun collection, but the zipper tote looks the most awesome!!

  • Carrie S.

    March 28, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    I really like the blue and the army colors. I too like the idea of a diaper bag that doesn’t scream diaper bad. In fact, I’ve never used a REAL diaper bag, always a regular bag outfitted as a diaper bag.

  • Amy

    March 28, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    I think the Zipper Tote is the best too – I am a huge fan of compartments/zippers and that bag would totally cover me. It would be hard to choose a color because I like so many of them but maybe the army color like the one you’re carrying. This bag would be perfect for me as I’m due in May with my first!

  • Melanie

    March 28, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    I love the white, perfect for summer!!! Loving all those compartments too!

  • Katie

    March 28, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Oooh, so hard to decide. I love the army green that you have, but I think the pale blue is my fave. And I WOULD use it as a diaper bag.

  • Rebe G.

    March 28, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    I’m totally loving the zippered tote bag and would use it just like you! Baby #2 is due in 2 weeks, so this would be absolutely perfect timing to win!

  • kate

    March 28, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    I think you’re spot on with the zipper tote, it’s perfect for almost anything!

  • Rebe G.

    March 28, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    I’d definitely go for the zippered tote bag and would use it just like you! Baby #2 is due in 2 weeks, so this would be absolutely perfect timing to win!

  • The Third Jessica

    March 28, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Oooh, that light blue one is prettyprettypretty. And I would also use it as a diaper bag!

  • Lindsey

    March 28, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    I am LOVING this bag! My fav is definitely the Zipper tote/Shoulder bag! That green-ish (??) color with the red zipper would go with EVERYTHING! Before I even knew you were giving this bag away, I thought, “I NEED THIS BAG!” THANKS!!!

    March 28, 2011 at 6:39 pm

  • Amanda Brown

    March 28, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    The zipper tote is my favourite too, and I’d go for the blue coated canvas. Love it! And you look amazing, as always. :)

  • Kristy

    March 28, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Zipper tote which I would use as a diaper bag. The cross body strap sold me! The only thing I carry that you don’t have in there is a blanket for nursing. And I usually have some matchbox cars and diapers for my 2 yr old.

  • verdemama

    March 28, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    I wouldn’t mind any of them… but I think I like either Stone or Indigo the best!

  • Elizabeth

    March 28, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    I love the color you have. And I probably wouldn’t use it as a diaper bag at least for a few more years…

  • tadpoledrain

    March 28, 2011 at 7:20 pm

    Ooh, I love love love the Weekender, but for sheer practicality, the Zipper Tote is fantastic. :)

  • Miss Virginia

    March 28, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Ok, not only do I LOVE the zipper tote, but Iove your entire outfit as well. Off to the gap and lands end tomorrow for the jeans, shoes and shirt (already have the glasses). BTW…you look quite glam, in fact, at first I thought that was a professional model shot from JCrew.

  • Pauline

    March 28, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    I would have to go with the zipper tote because I have young kids and it’s got the sholder strap. But I also really like the gym bag….

  • Melanie

    March 28, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    The Weekender, definitely – I love the boxy style and the different color around the zipper. So cute!

  • Laura

    March 28, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    The Carina Mini-zip Crossbody. Love!

  • Elizabeth

    A toss up between weekender and zipper tote

  • MichelleG

    March 28, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    oooohh… Carina Zipper Tote/Shoulderbag. in your picture of the color choices: top row, third from the left (“Stone”, i think?)

    i was JUST telling my mother-in-law and sis-in-laws that i didn’t want a traditional diaper bag and would probably just carry one of those roll-up mats in a large tote (ala tjmax, etc)… and they all looked at me like i was CRAZY. well girls, whose crazy now? :o)

  • Sarah

    March 28, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    I love the looks of the weekender.

  • Elizabeth

    March 28, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    So happy I don’t actually need a diaper bag anymore. I’ve been changing diapers for almost 10 years straight. We have three girls and the youngest just got potty trained, yay!! I could use that bag for other purposes though. I love all of the colors! Very cute!

  • kristy

    March 28, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    love the stone colored one!

  • SarahD

    March 28, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    The red is pretty flashy…I’m not usually one for red, but with my black with white polka dot coat, it’d be sweet!! So red for me. Pick me, pick me!!

  • Sarah

    March 28, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    I think you got the best one! It’s definitely the cutest. Good choice!

  • Cynthia

    I love the blue zipper tote!

  • Irene

    March 28, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    Prior to this post I would have considered the Pocket Tote for a diaper bag, but as usual your sense of style is outstanding and steal worthy (it’s flattery, right?). Now I’m coveting the Zipper Bag in blue – trendy and practical!

  • ViewLulu

    March 28, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    I love the one on the main page- I think that’s the Stone Cold one? LOVE!

  • Tina

    March 28, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    Okay the zipper tote rocks. I am so sick of my skiphop but all of the other diaper bags I’ve looked at are hideous.

    I also love the other two crossbody bags – crossbody bags are definitely a must with two babes!

  • mary

    March 28, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    This zipper tote looks great! I would love to double it as a diaper bag :)

  • emily

    March 28, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    That zipper tote looks amazing! I love the long strap for carrying the bag cross-body.. that is my biggest pet peeve, bags falling off my shoulder when trying to wrassle my Jojo.

  • A Little Coffee

    March 28, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    Love the white one with the brown zippers, in the bottom left corner!

  • Sarah West

    March 28, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    I am always on the lookout for a fun and not too “diapery” diaper bag. These are perfect. With me being only 5 feet tall it is easy for bags to look like they are taking over and this one looks like the perfect size. Baby #2 is scheduled to come via c-section on this wednesday (3/30/11) and I find the white one with the red zippers would be perfect for either a boy or a girl (since we do not know what we are having yet :) ) Love it!!!!!

  • Lisa

    March 28, 2011 at 11:56 pm

    I Loooove a big purse and sometimes use it for an overnight bag if I don’t need too much stuff. My favorite is the pink zippered bag. I had a purse that color that the strap broke on and have not found one I like enough to replace it since. This could be the one!!!

    oh I want to win this so very badly….so, very, badly! My favorite is probably the one you have (original, I know!) but the large tote is pretty great too! (might even fit the baby? wait….)

  • Regina

    March 29, 2011 at 12:25 am

    It doesn’t get any cuter than the Carina Zipper Tote/Shoulderbag does it?!! Tres cute! Now choosing a color is hard. Its a toss up between Indigo and Army.
    Did I mention its my birthday on the 2nd of April. Fingers crossed! :)

  • Jennifer

    March 29, 2011 at 1:01 am

    I think the Zipper Tote is my favorite! Great giveaway!

  • Meghan

    March 29, 2011 at 1:01 am

    Love Love Love the zipper tote/weekender you are sporting. I am getting tired of carrying around diaper bags, I think 17 months is long enough! As for color, loving the army green or possibly what looks to be black with green accents. I am so in need of a new multi-purpose bag! By the way, you totally look rocking in the pics with the bag…I am still trying to get my style and body back since baby #1 came along.

  • Karin H

    March 29, 2011 at 2:18 am

    I really love the mini carina zip crossbody in the same colour as the zipper tote your wearing in the pics. So army… or indigo… or cafe! Argh, I can’t decide!

  • Nancy

    i really love the zipper tote best. i’d probably get it in black or army. or indigo.

  • Mel Ridlon

    March 29, 2011 at 4:02 am

    God willing, I would so rock the Carina Zipper Tote in Stone. Your creative organized illustration sold me! Done.

  • Audra

    I would love this bag in the cream and brown. I overspent for my diaper bag and it hasn’t held up well!

  • amy david

    March 29, 2011 at 4:57 am

    My fave is the one you carry…olive and red, love it!
    Been looking at a crossbody bag for a while now.

  • Sue Ly

    I love the bag that looks just like yours! Which Ray Ban Aviators do you recommend….the large style or the small?

  • JoAnn

    March 29, 2011 at 5:55 am

    I HATE my diaper bag. Such a PIA, I was constantly digging through the black hole of that large space to find a bink or a teether.

    The zipper tote in indigo is amazing! Definintely my favorite.

    You look fantabulous, by the way! Your bootcamp success has inspired me to kick up my workouts a notch.

  • Jeanne

    March 29, 2011 at 6:02 am

    Ohh..I love this bag! I like the color you have best!

  • Elaine C.

    March 29, 2011 at 6:06 am

    Ooh, these are all fantastic! For me it’s a tie between the triangle tote and the zipper tote.

  • Jody

    March 29, 2011 at 6:11 am

    I’d love the mini cross body for everyday weekend use, but the toe you have would be perfect for back and forth to work. Hmmm ,if I win the tote maybe I’ll have to get the cross body too.

  • Colleen

    March 29, 2011 at 6:13 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVE and God knows NEED this! Any colour would be awesome but I’m partial to black (or pink).

  • Mary H.

    March 29, 2011 at 6:15 am

    Loved yours – the Carina Zipper Tote/Shoulderbag! And I would definitely use it as a diaper bag – baby #1 arriving in August!

  • Becky

    March 29, 2011 at 6:16 am

    let’s be honest. all those bad boys are pretty amazing. if i were to choose, i would say the dark blue.

  • Rachel

    March 29, 2011 at 6:16 am

    I love the Triangle Tote. Super cute and functional too!

  • Kate

    March 29, 2011 at 6:19 am

    The gym bag and the zipper tote are my two favorites, both look super cute while still allowing you to haul around a ton of stuff…great combo!

  • Sheila Hickmon

    March 29, 2011 at 6:19 am

    My fave is the Carina Tassel Handbag!! Thanks!

  • Emily

  • Christine

    March 29, 2011 at 6:37 am

    Ohhh, I never get to have a really nice bag anymore and I would LOVE to win this! I adore the zipper tote in Army or Cafe. Simply beautiful and I would feel so fancy carrying such a great bag around with me (I would use it for everything and with two kids it would fit my needs perfectly while making me look chic!)

    LOVE!

  • francie

    March 29, 2011 at 6:43 am

    i’m digging the cream colored on with the brown handles (far left, bottom). they look like they’d be great work bags, too!

  • Jennifer

    March 29, 2011 at 6:50 am

    Am I allowed to say I love them all!??!?!?!

  • Lauren

    March 29, 2011 at 6:54 am

    I’d pick the exact one you have, in the same color. What can I say, you’ve got good taste.

  • Hillary

    March 29, 2011 at 7:04 am

    I love the zipper tote, just like you have!

  • Stacie

    March 29, 2011 at 7:05 am

    Love it! I’m well past the diaper bag stage but I’m sure I could find another suitable use for it… maybe jetsetting around the globe!

  • sarah

    March 29, 2011 at 7:14 am

    the zipper tote is my fav too, and the army color is the perfect spring bag, not too light, not too dark. great stuff!

  • kelly

    March 29, 2011 at 7:21 am

    i never thought i would say it but i really like the zipper tote!
    it’s not my usual style but i love the room & the function.

  • Jodi

  • Andrea in Fort Worth

    March 29, 2011 at 7:23 am

    DIAPER BAG ENVY!!! *swoon*

    I’m liking the Army color but ALSO loving the watermelon color…just because it’s called watermelon.

  • Sasha

    March 29, 2011 at 7:32 am

    I love the olive one that you are rocking! Or, the olive and off white! They are all lovely though:)

  • Melissa

  • Betsy

    March 29, 2011 at 7:41 am

    I have been looking for a nice summer bag lately (dreaming of warmer weather), and I love the cream colored zipper tote. Which I would use for a work bag… if I ever find a job! (Maybe I should just buy the bag first, and the job will follow. That’s good financial planning, right?)

  • Jessica L.

    March 29, 2011 at 7:41 am

    The triangle tote is downright adorable…I would love to carry it around everywhere I go! I would also love to have this amazing weekend bag (no kids yet!) in that gorgeous navy color!

  • Carolyn V

    March 29, 2011 at 7:44 am

    I’ll have to be a copy-cat and agree with you on the zipper tote. Love the compartments and it would be great for taking to work.

  • Lyndsay

    March 29, 2011 at 7:45 am

    Sky blue zipper tote!

  • Molly C.

    March 29, 2011 at 7:50 am

    I really like it in the Army color because that seems like a good neutral. I don’t think I could commit to any other color

  • kimberley p

    March 29, 2011 at 8:06 am

    So there are about ten bags I would absolutely love, and thats saying a lot since I am a diehard Dooney fan. BUT, I’d love to give the canvas and leather mailbag to my lovely daughter. She is graduating from HS this spring, and headed to University of the Pacific!!! And she needs a new bag. And this one is so cool!

  • Joanna

    March 29, 2011 at 8:08 am

    hmmm, that’s a tough one. i love the camel colored you are holding and the white with the grey trim and orange detailing.

  • Lisa

    March 29, 2011 at 8:47 am

    Totally digging the Zipper Tote in the same color you have – real original of me, eh? Perfect for upcoming summer travel with a 2 and 4 year old!

  • Ellyn

    Ooooh sooo cute! This makes me feel like my diaper bag is so ugly and frumpy. I love the navy one! Adorableness.

  • Savannah C.

    March 29, 2011 at 9:03 am

    The navy blue one is my fav :)

  • Meagan

    March 29, 2011 at 9:08 am

    They’re all pretty cute, but I think the zipper tote is my favorite. Maybe the white with grey accents? Or the light blue? Hmmm…

    LOVE the zipper tote. Would use it as a super trendy laptop bag.

  • Darcy

    March 29, 2011 at 9:14 am

    I love the zipper tote in army. It’s neutral but not boring, and would certainly add something to my neutral and boring wardrobe. :)

  • Christen

    March 29, 2011 at 9:19 am

    The foldover clutch is adorable! Sometimes you need something small for date night, but so many clutches are covered in sequins or something. This would be perfect!

  • cassie

    March 29, 2011 at 9:19 am

    The Square Pocket Tote looks really nice and functional!

  • Isabel

    March 29, 2011 at 9:26 am

    So beautiful. (Both the bag and you!) I have a squirmy 7 month old and am trying desperately to find the right bag. My husband would die before using the current bag, which has no closures anywhere and really isn’t doing it’s job as a diaper bag.

    I would love, love, love to be sporting a new Clava Zipper Tote around Seattle with my sweet baby. (If I win I promise to not like my husband use it. He’s not worthy.)

  • Betsy

    March 29, 2011 at 9:29 am

    Love, LOVE the zipper tote! I currently hate my diaper bag, and with another baby on the way…I have to find something more functional :)

    PINK! :)

  • laziza

    March 29, 2011 at 9:40 am

  • C.K.

    March 29, 2011 at 9:49 am

    I’m gonna have to say the Zipper Tote. (The Vertical Tote was tempting me, but those extra outside pockets on the Zipper Tote just won me over.)

  • Kristyn

    March 29, 2011 at 9:50 am

    I’m partial to the square pocket cross-body. I also love the zipper tote as I am still in my diaper bag days and it looks so great…..but really I wouldn’t be turning down any of them.

  • Megan

    March 29, 2011 at 10:04 am

    Oooh, fabulous timing–I’ve just been shopping for a new tote as mine has literally fallen to pieces. I love the zipper tote, especially in grey.

    They are all awesome bags, but I’d love to have the Carina Square Pocket Crossbody in army!

  • Rebecca

    March 29, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Definitely the vertical tote!

  • Meagan

    March 29, 2011 at 10:58 am

    The zipper tote, definitely. What a perfect laptop bag! I’m in love with the light blue/red combo – so chic.

  • Amy

    March 29, 2011 at 11:02 am

    Holy cow. I am in love with these bags. I love the Zipper Tote, but the Triangle Tote is adorable too. And the colors! Love the light blue, but the olive is a lot more versatile. Thanks for introducing these, they are fantastic!

  • Tracy

    March 29, 2011 at 11:04 am

    Ah-mazing! It would be hard to decide…

  • Kerry

    March 29, 2011 at 11:04 am

    Definitely the carina zipper tote!

  • KateP

    March 29, 2011 at 11:19 am

    It’s a toss up between the Zipper Tote and the Tassel Tote. Either in the light blue are perfect for summer.

  • Ali

    March 29, 2011 at 11:34 am

    I LOVE the Carina Zipper Tote as a diaper bag in Army like you are using it as! I’m due in the next few weeks with twins, so this would make my life a whole lot easier plus with a dash of style!!!!

  • janine

    March 29, 2011 at 11:38 am

    the zipper tote is AMAZING. as a part time nanny i’m always on the lookout for purses that can double as diaper/kid bags. this looks like a great transition bag–meaning i can sling it over my shoulder full of barbies and juice boxes during the day and not look crazy meeting friends after work. thanks for the heads up!

  • Kate

    March 29, 2011 at 11:44 am

    Zipper tote!

  • Jenny

    March 29, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    The weekender bag would be awesome…most likely b/c I haven’t been on a trip in a year and a half. The zipper tote is super cute as well and would definitely be great for me to haul my kid’s things around in.

  • marisa

    March 29, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    me likes the zipper tote as well – and would use as a diaper bag to boot! white or the caffe color.

    fyi, i lurve you.

    The gym bag is very cool, but I prefer the compartments in your bag. Zipper tote shoulderbag all the way! I’d be so psyched to win it!

  • Mary

    March 29, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    I’m loving the zipper tote, as a diaper bag, in either the dark blue or the chocolate…tough decision.

    I think I’m actually loving the zipper tote.

  • Meegan

    March 29, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    Well, I don’t mean to be such a copy-cat, but I would like the exact bag you are holding in those gorgeous photos (Boot Camp! Hot mama!). And I would also use it as a diaper bag. We are nearing a diaper-free existence over here (well, during the day anyway) and I love that it’s such a cool tote, post diapers. And let’s be honest, I’ll still be toting sippies….

  • Stephanie

    March 29, 2011 at 2:31 pm

    If I truly had to pick one, I’d probably be practical and go for the dark brown or black… but if I had to pick one just because it was pretty that light blue sure jumps out at me.

  • eileen

    March 29, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I love it! The one you have! In the color you have!

    If I had guts, I’d go with the stone..but just how “wipe downable” is that canvas? I don’t trust myself.

  • Aurora

    March 29, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Zipper tote is definitely my favorite – gotta have the shoulder strap when you have more than one crazy running around!

  • Chichi

    March 29, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    The blue one please; LOVE IT! And yup, it’ll be a diaper bag too :)

  • Ami

    March 29, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    I love the triangle tote!

  • Christina

    March 29, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    I love the large tote and I really love the zippered tote you are demonstrating here. Even if I don’t win, I may just purchase from Clava. Thanks for bringing this line to my attention.

    I love the carina foldover clutch. so cute.

  • Ann

    March 29, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    I love the zipper tote in stone. It would work great for my everyday, carry all my crap bag. Would have loved to have it as a diaper bag but alas the girls are out of diapers and carrying their own bags now!

  • Lindsay

    March 29, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    I love the zipper tote or the triangle tote. Not sure I could pick a favorite!

    March 29, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    so i saw this top in your kgphotos and thought ooooo i need that. so now i am off to order it!

    The dark blue zipper tote! I love it!

  • Monica

    March 29, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    I am in love with that zipper tote. It would be perfect to use for hauling all the things I need to with a toddler when we are traveling.

  • Jac

    March 29, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    Definitely the same one you’re rockin…. love it, love the army color.

  • Stephanie

    March 29, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    I love the tote you have in army green. I am due to have a baby boy in 8 weeks and this is really the perfect diaper bag!

  • Barb @ getupandplay

    March 29, 2011 at 4:24 pm

    I’m loving the sky blue!

  • Kate F.

    March 29, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    My Real Diaper bag has been sitting idle for a couple months now; I just cram everything into a little tote. This would be much more dignified.

  • Kate F.

    March 29, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    (Ugh, I pressed submit by accident. I am in deep, deep love with the green one you have. Red zippers! Eee!)

  • Mama in the City

    March 29, 2011 at 4:33 pm

    SARAH!!!! I love this giveaway, what a fantastic bunch of bags too! I love their Weekender bag. Could fit a lot of things into that tote.

  • Danielle

    March 29, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    Ohhh this bag is all sorts of awesome! I would have to choose the zipper tote in Stone Coated Canvas. LOVE!

  • Amber

    March 29, 2011 at 5:18 pm

    Zipper tote!

  • lauren

    March 29, 2011 at 5:20 pm

    My favorites would be the Carina gym bag and the zipper tote, and I love all the color choices!

  • Julie

    March 29, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    I’m digging the zipper tote.

  • giselle

    cute! i want one!! the pink one!

  • Tara

    March 29, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    Ooh I love the zipper tote! Looks purrrrfect for everyday purse/kid supplies…. Maybe could even use it as a camera bag.

  • COLiz

    March 29, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    Methinks the zipper tote is my favorite. It would make a lovely gift for someone’s birthday. Mine is Saturday — hint, hint, Random Number Generator! :)

  • Rachel

    March 29, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    i love the zipper tote too, but otherwise the little crossbody one is my favorite (not super practical though, as I am expecting baby #4!).

  • Samantha

    March 29, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    I just can’t pick between the zipper tote and the tassel handbag! both are super cute = )

  • Jess

    March 29, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    i’m pretty sure that my fav bag out of that whole collection is the zipper tote but in that fantastic baby blue color! they have some great looking wallets too.

  • Sarah

    March 29, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    ooh, hello pretty sky blue bag….*waves*

  • Liz

    March 29, 2011 at 6:47 pm

    love that bag and also the tote. the color combo you picked is awesome. love it

  • Kelly

    March 29, 2011 at 6:53 pm

    Loving them all… I think the Weekender is my favorite.

  • Amanda Lipstein

    March 29, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    I love an unconventional diaper bag, and this one is so stylish as well as functional! Go Zipper Tote! I love the white on top with red zippers.

  • Nancy R

    March 29, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    I think I’d love your diaper bag as a non-diaper bag. I like the mini cross-body too, and think it would make a swanky bag for my daughter to carry her Epi-pen…but she’s going to have to wait.

  • Carolee Beckham

    March 29, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    love the carina weekender. am always in need of a bigger bag… :P

    but in all reality, i’d rock that diaper bag. definitely need one of those in the super-near future :)

  • Holly

    March 29, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Loving the zipper tote….with an 8 yr old and a 5 yr old, I’m still carrying ‘stuff’ for them and it always ends up lost in my purse. The zipper tote could solve a lot of that!

  • andrea hogan

    March 29, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    ME = about to have a baby and still desperately seeking the perfect diaper/non diaper bag!

    You have found it for me!!! I love love love the one that you have!!

  • Tiffany

    March 29, 2011 at 8:03 pm

    Have to say, the zipper tote is my favorite. I’m forever losing things in my purse.

  • Linette

    March 29, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    In LOVE with the Carina zipper tote in the Stone Coated Canvas color!!! Actually, all color combo’s are fantastic!

  • Linda

    March 29, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Love the red one! So pretty!

  • Tracy d

    March 29, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    I really like the tote you have in cafe or navy. Looks like it holds a lot and is stylish and practical too!

  • Morgan

    March 29, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I love the zipper tote in black and would totally use it as a diaper bag, too. You are rockin’ your whole outfit- love it!

  • Andrea Utz

    March 29, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    I would pick the zipper tote too, in the same color you chose. It’s adorable!

  • Caro

    March 29, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    I love the pale blue tote!

  • kathleen

    March 29, 2011 at 11:57 pm

    Good heavens, I can’t decide! They are all amazing.
    I’d be happy to own any of those bags. I love the color that
    you got. It’s so versatile. I love the chocolate color and the navy color, as well!

  • Caitie

    March 30, 2011 at 12:30 am

    Pretty much in love with the brown colour AND the one you’re clearly rocking.

  • Anna

    March 30, 2011 at 12:41 am

    I can’t go past the Carina zipper tote. Love the “I could go on safari” look of it!

  • Tori

    March 30, 2011 at 3:18 am

    I’m with you, I definitely like the zipper tote the best! I have a 4mo old and hate how bulky my diaper bag is! This seems like a great solution. I’d probably do the same color choice as your sample as well, it’s a good shade that’ll go with most outfits. :)

  • Aneets

    March 30, 2011 at 4:09 am

    I love the Carina Zipper tote you’re sporting. I hate using actual diaper bags for toting around the baby stuff- I find using an actual non diaper bag (which functions as one) makes me feel more put together and less frumpy.

  • Melissa

    March 30, 2011 at 5:42 am

    Zipper Tote! Zipper Tote!! It’s calling my name!

  • Amanda

    March 30, 2011 at 6:01 am

    Oh! Great post! I have a petunia picklebottom that I used with my daughter but now that she’s older I don’t lug around so much crap and usually end up stuffing a few diapers, wipes and a wet bag in my purse when we go out (NOT CONVENIENT) instead of carrying around that giant diaper bag. I would LOVE a Clava bag!

    I especially love the camel one with the red zippers!!

  • Andrea

    March 30, 2011 at 6:09 am

    Hot!!! I had almost convinced myself to just use a backpack for this baby (3 weeks and counting so i’d better go find me something!) – but your picture has changed my mind! Loving the zipper tote, all i’ve ever bought are cheap bags that last me one season, time for a splurge!

  • Kristen R.

    March 30, 2011 at 6:24 am

    I love the white coated canvas Carina tote with the brown trim! So classic and roomy.

  • Karen

    March 30, 2011 at 6:38 am

    The white is perfect!

  • Susan

    March 30, 2011 at 6:43 am

    I love the zipper tote also! I’m a shoulder bag gal, always searching for the perfect one and never finding it. I like the dark brown one.

  • Amy beth

    March 30, 2011 at 6:53 am

    love the zipper bag the most! can’t decide between army or stone though…but i would like very much to have to make that choice!! thanks!

  • Jess

    March 30, 2011 at 7:02 am

    The navy tote is way rad – and I am totally with you on the diaper bag front. I used a Chinese Laundry dual zippered tote for mine – one side for the kid and one for me!

  • Emily

    March 30, 2011 at 7:19 am

    I have to say, the Carina zipper tote in either the indigo or army is my favorite. It would be so great to use now as a diaper bag, and when my daughter is older, I can keep using it (unlike the bag I have now that screams “diaper bag”!)

  • Rose

    March 30, 2011 at 7:19 am

    Love the Carina Square Pocket Tote!

  • Lisa

    March 30, 2011 at 7:45 am

    Love the versatility of this bag – great for someone who has 3 kids and carries everything including wipes, money, snacks, crayons and even hockey pucks!!

  • Christina Cesena

    March 30, 2011 at 7:47 am

    My favorite is is the zipper tote. Fashion and functionality?!?! Hooray!

  • Kathleen

    March 30, 2011 at 8:03 am

    Ooh, after looking through the whole Carina collection, I think the zipper tote is actually my favorite. As much as I like the light blue one, knowing me it’d get dirty within days…I’m actually really digging the watermelon one.

  • Laura

    March 30, 2011 at 8:33 am

    ohhhh….so hard to choose. the Weekender followed closely by the Carina Zip Crossbody.

  • Jill V.

    March 30, 2011 at 8:37 am

    Damn! Already 586 others in this one! Crossing my fingers for the zipper tote! Looooooooooove it as a diaper bag! I too have the same aversion and never carry a traditional one so this would be awesome for me.

    Have an 11 mo. old squirmer also.

    Thanks!

  • Sarah

    March 30, 2011 at 8:43 am

    You’ve totally sold me on the zipper tote; ‘army’ is a great colour. And I have a soft spot for ‘watermelon’.

    ps. You look fantastic.

  • Babs

    March 30, 2011 at 8:55 am

    zipper tote for sure. Can’t help it, I’m a sucker for advertising and your post sold me!

    Ohh, I love the zipper tote in black coated canvas! I’m expecting my second child in September, and this bag would be perfect.

  • lisa

    March 30, 2011 at 9:11 am

    oooh. def the zipper tote, although i like a lot of them. in cafe. yum, pockets.

    Don’t have a baby, but would love this bag!

    The zipper tote for sure. You’ve sold me on all it’s perks!

    That chocolate brown Zipper Tote is divine!

  • marcie

    March 30, 2011 at 11:26 am

    Swooning over the Navy one. I don’t like conventional diaper bags either. This would be a nice alternative to the swim bag I’m currently using!

  • Mrs G

    March 30, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    I would love the same style you have! I completely agree with you about most diaper bags, and as I’m expecting my 1st baby this summer, I would totally rock this as a diaper bag too. So cute!

  • Ann K

    March 30, 2011 at 12:11 pm

  • thisnomad

    March 30, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    I love me some pockets. So I’d have to go with with the zipper tote, although the gym bag is also looking quite functional.

  • lisa

    I am with you… loving the zipper tote. I like the white, but with kids, i imagine it would not be white for long! I’d go green…

  • Krista

    they are all beautiful but I think you’re right about the zipper tote– so functional, especially with little ones. it’s my favorite for sure!

  • Carley

    March 30, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    I see why you picked the zipper tote – it’s definitely my favorite one! I like all of the colors too. It’s a hard choice to pick just one!

  • Robin

    March 30, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I think it’s a tie between the Tassel Handbag and the Tassel Tote! Love them both!

    I should say the black on black as it would be far more versatile, but I’m going with the army khaki green!

  • Diane

    March 30, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    Oohh, the zipper tote in red! And I would use it as a diaper bag!

  • Marie

    March 30, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    I actually like the zipper tote the best. Being able to use it as a shoulder tote or crossbody really makes it versatile. What color? Navy. Or maybe black. Yeah, black.

  • Jane

    March 30, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Totally agree on the zipper tote! I love the small little clutch too, but as a Mommy of 3 – I’d have to go practical (and stylin’) with the Zipper tote!

  • Heather S

    March 30, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    hmmmm….i’m torn – the weekender or the zipper bag. I love them both!

  • Shauna

    March 31, 2011 at 6:31 am

    I Loooveee the zipper tote. The white and the olive are both amazing. Alhtough I would not use it as a diaper bag – I sure would be able to fill it up.

  • Kim

    March 31, 2011 at 7:08 am

    I love the color of the bag you have. It would be awesome as a diaper bag – and beyond.

  • Andrea

    March 31, 2011 at 7:24 am

    I like the weekender! I love to travel and I’m a master at packing light, I could probably make that bag work for a week long trip. I’ve been looking for something to use as a diaper and the zipper bag looks perfect. My first baby is due on April 1!

  • Ari

    March 31, 2011 at 7:44 am

    Perfect timing! I am currently looking for a diaper bag and I am not finding anything I love. The zipper tote would be perfect!

  • Pfieffer

    March 31, 2011 at 8:15 am

    I love the Weekender because of all my local roadtrips I have planned but the Tote would be perfect for the workweek! I’m having serious color indecision- white? (would I make it messy), black? (basic. too basic?), pink (I’m not a pink person. Well, except when I work out. But still, siren song of pink, I hear you!). And you are a total skinny minnie! I hope I get great results like that from my bootcamp endeavors!

  • Darcy

  • Cheryl

    March 31, 2011 at 9:14 am

    I really love the triangle tote, but as a soon to be mom, I have a feeling a bag that small will be impractical.

  • Kristy Center

    March 31, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Oh my! J’adore!! Can I have them all? Absolutely you chose the best one, in my humble opinion – the zipper bag in army. But for summer I also love the stone and white colors!

  • MSP

    March 31, 2011 at 9:39 am

    I have never had such a beautiful bag so am already envisioning myself as the winner and the ensuing crys of “where did you get that? .. it’s gorgeous. and look, it’s making you gorgeous too!” I’d take any one of them but the one you are rocking is my favorite. Let me win. Please?

    Absolutely love the zipper tote (especially in “Cafe” or “Indigo”)! Perfect for the everyday life as a busy college student!

    Ooooh, I’m torn between the Carina weekender and the Clava tote. I’d probably use the Clava more but the Carina is such a perfect weekend-away size – not too bulky, easily organizable, adjustable shoulder strap, coated canvas to quickly wipe off the latte I’d surely spill all over it in an early morning airport run… I love them both. In the event that by some happy leprechaun riding a glittery unicorn chance I happen to win, can you choose which bag for me? I’m a libra you see so all decisions have to be carefully weighed and measured and I will just trust your judgement on this one. :)

    Oooh! I love the Carina zipper tote in Olive, just like you have. I am an expecting first-time mom and have been wondering how I can avoid that “diaper bag” look….this is perfect! I would totally use it as a diaper bag.

    I love the tassel tote. My kids are slightly older than yours, so it looks perfect for carrying the basics.

    I love the weekender in the turquoise blue color! I am currently using a nike duffel bag for an overnight bag. SO UGLY!!

    Love this! My favorite is the blue, which surprised me a little. I thoughts I owned a bag in every color, but when I checked my inventory, I don’t have blue!

    My favorite is the zipper tote…..love the blue!!

    I like the Weekender as well, but it’s a little large looking to be used as a diaper bag, which is what I will use it for! I love the Zipper Tote in the dark brown Cafe color!

    I am ALMOST diaperbag less! This would be a great transition bag as soon as potty training is finished. I like the Olive green one.

    I would have to go with the black zipper tote. I have three children ages 2.5-7 and this would definitely hold all my stuff!

  • Jessica

    March 31, 2011 at 11:31 am

    Oh my holy WOW. I love the Carina Zipper Tote in pretty much every gosh darn color they offer… The Army green is awesome b/c of the red highlights, but I also really like the pink…

  • Kelly

    March 31, 2011 at 11:33 am

    Sadly, I no longer need a diaper bag with a four-year old. I think I could fit goldfish crackers and a few Spider-Man toys just fine in the Triangle bag in Indigo.

  • Rita

    March 31, 2011 at 11:59 am

    Oooh, I would have a hard time choosing between your style, and the ‘gym bag”. Either way, I think I’d go with the red… so cute!

  • Keri

    March 31, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    Ooh, I really like that bag you’re sportin’!

  • Gina

    March 31, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Holy Moly! I need this so bad! I just had my third kiddo and I have never had a diper bag that I have liked. Right now we are using my old backpack from college and it sucks. I like the vertical tote for the vastness of it but the zipper tote has that sweet shoulder strap which is so necessary! Oh please, please, please pick me!

  • Elise

    March 31, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Awesome bag! I love the army green one.

  • Meghan

    March 31, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    Army coated canvas!

  • Sky

    March 31, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    I love the zipper tote in white/red — and I would also use it as a diaper bag… I still have not found the perfect one and baby is due any day!

  • Christine Moore

    March 31, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    I would LOVE watermelon or sky blue zipper tote!! I desperately need to replace my black and white polka dot diaper bag!

  • Michelle

    March 31, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    The Zipper Tote is pretty cute in the cafe and army colors!

  • Cathi

    I really like the Zipper Tote in cafe. That would be my favorite.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

  • Michelle

    March 31, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Seriously, even after reviewing all the purses, the Carina Zipper Tote is my favorite! It’s gorgeous, everything I have been wanting in a purse for so long. I love the white especially, but I would probably get it dirty in like, 3 seconds. I would love any color though. I seriously would love this bag for school and work…perfect fit for my laptop!

  • Elizabeth

    I love, love, love the sky blue color in the Carina Zipper Tote – so perfect for spring AND my little boy! Who knew diaper bags could be stylish, too?

  • Shannon

    March 31, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    Love the one in the picture. So cute!

  • Lelia

    March 31, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    Wow – I think the triangle tote would also make a good diaper bag. If I had to choose, I’d pick your zipper tote, though!

  • Juliet

    March 31, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    The tassle handbag is so great! Love the size!

  • Christy B

    Square pocket tote. Hubba hubba

  • Annabelle

    March 31, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    Indeed the zipper tote in green with the snazzy red zips. You have fantastic taste. My diaper bag is so… boring.

  • Amy

    March 31, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    Zipper tote looks fantabulous! Light bluish color is great summer color!

  • MetroDad

    March 31, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    I don’t want a diaper bag but I just wanted to say that you’re looking very Nancy Botwin today! (And yes, that’s a compliment!)

  • Cupboard Love

    March 31, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    Haha, I’m always buying diaper bags in search of the perfect knitting tote. I really love the Carina Square Pocket Tote, but the Zipper Tote would be pretty awesome. I’m just thinking about all the notions I could put in it!

  • Kate

    March 31, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Carina Square Pocket Crossbody is my fave but I’d love to win the Zipper Tote!

  • Sarah Ann

    Zipper Tote in army for the baby girl due this summer! No gunpoint required.

  • Tami A

    March 31, 2011 at 8:57 pm

    Ooooh! I love the zipper tote/shoulder bag in red!

  • Becky

    March 31, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    Square pocket and triangle totes are my faves! But they’re all pretty great, no?

  • Michele R.

    March 31, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    My favorite is the Carina Gym Bag.

  • Holly

    March 31, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    These are so great! It’s a toss up between the light blue, the army green, and the red. Love the red zippers! Does the inside of your diaper bag always stay that organized? If yes, impressive! If no, welcome to my side of a bucket bag!

  • Shar

    i LOVE the zipper tote that you’re sportin, lovely lady. it’s a nontraditional diaper bag, but i could imagine it works in a pinch when toting a laptop, ipad, etc…

    what a great giveaway!

  • Jilly

    I love the bag you are holding in the pic. Perfect.

    is it cheating to say that my favorite is your Carina? Because true story.

    Also- be my personal stylist? yes?

  • Lisa

    April 1, 2011 at 9:53 am

    I love the zipper tote as a diaper bag! I would go for that one and use it as a diaper bag as well. My last diaper bag was very similar and I loved the crossover strap and the fact that it didn’t look like a “normal” diaper bag. This ones even cuter and has more pockets!!!

  • KatieBigTex

    April 1, 2011 at 10:02 am

    Love the zipper tote! My current diaper bag is a ridiculously cheap looking canvas mess. LOVE the green/red color combo.

    Without question, the Zipper Tote Bag is perfect. It is professional enough for a meeting, fun enough for everyday, and versatile. For a young professor, like me, it is sleek without being stuff. It is really great.

  • Emily

    Aaaaahhhhh!!!! My friend and co-worker has been carrying around this hideous $10 “purse”-that’s-really-a-gym-bag-with-a-broken-strap-but-she-uses-it-as-a-diaper-bag for months! We’ve been trying to convince her that she MUST find something that would be universal and much more fashionable – this zipper tote would be PERFECT for her!!
