Venti Girl Holiday Gift Guide: The Multitasker

As you may know, even though I have a young daughter I am opposed to the concept of "diaper bags" or other child specific bags. Why, you ask? I discovered immediately that (at least for me) it was completely unnecessary. What I should have purchased (and ultimately did) was a large, high quality handbag that could be worn multiple ways. Hand held (for those rare situations where I had a free hand or was able to go out on my own, sans bébé), on the shoulder (for times when I had at least one free hand) and cross-body (arguably the most convenient position to wear a bag in, so long as you can find one with a beautiful strap and just the right "drop").

Knowing what I now know, I'm approaching the arrival of #2 with a far more educated approach. This time I want a stunning bag that can be worn multiple ways - yet still be chic enough to use when I'm bopping around the city sans company of little ones. As it turn out, I am not the kind of mom who carries an entire nursery with me when I venture out. What that little one needs most in her life is you and a handful of diapers. Just add few baby-centric necessities to your bag and go on about your day.

Meet my newest multitasking friend, the Chloé Elsie Large Day Bag in Beige. Like every busy woman I know, she does it all with panache. Boasting a sturdy top handle, she also has a detachable shoulder strap, an internal zip-fastening pocket and is fully lined in a durable olive twill. Because we all need a bit of shimmer in our lives, she has glorious gold hardware accents including an eye-catching turn lock-fastening cutout clasp at the front flap. She'll take you from design appointment to doctor's visit without skipping a beat.

And isn't a versatile element in your wardrobe the best kind of luxury one can ask for? Trust me, this beauty will prove herself to be a high performer in your closet. I know she'll be pulling double duty in mine.

What the beautiful people are saying...

OMG GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stunning. & I am so with you on not lugging around an ugly or baby-ish diaper bag. Yuk.

Something to say, gorgeous?
