I know it's only two minutes since I last wrote about Jessica Alba (pictured above, reading to children for a Unity Healthcare event) but who can resist a story about a celebrity and a handbag? It's easy to tell I'm pregnant, because suddenly I'm excited about paparazzi shots of celebs and the latest changing bag, rather than which Fendi / Chloe / Marc Jacobs various A-listers are keeping their lippy in.
Jessica has been spotted this weekend sporting the Storksak patent 'Dori' baby bag. Note the patent finish, readers, it's obviously a hot trend for changing bags right now, and hell, being on-trend with your baby paraphernalia is pretty important (I write with tongue firmly in cheek).
Storksak bags aren't cheap, but they are lovely. They're stylish, simple and would blend well with your working wardrobe if need be. I'd describe them as good options if you want to avoid looking too mumsy (definitely what I'm looking for). They've featured in Grazia, Heat, Red, InStyle, Now, You, Stella and Marie Claire, so they're clearly a favourite with editors as well as celebrities.
Jessica's Dori bag costs £78. It's water resistant crinkled PVC with a wipe clean interior and a zip enclosure. It includes a padded changing mat, loads of pockets inside plus dual thermo-insulated side zip pockets to keep fluids warm or cool for up to four hours. The Storksak website helpfully has pictures of all the inside bits.
As well as the Dori bag, my favourites include the new Jess in red (£75) and the Elizabeth shoulder bag in tan (£166). I know, I know, £166 for a changing bag, but it is leather and gorgeous to look at. It has all the right baby bits, plus it's the right size for a laptop, which means it will have a life beyond being a baby bag. That's got to be a good idea, yes?
Have you found a great changing bag that works well and also looks good? Let us know here.
