Babyriffic Trendy Mommy Must Haves and a Swagalicious Giveaway!

Congrats to our winner Suzie L.

Pre-marriage and subsequent baby in the carriage, I considered myself tragically hip — and, yes, maybe somewhat enslaved to trendy footwear. In fact, as a New York City single twenty-something, I even went so far as to fork over one entire paycheck for a pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos. Fortunately for both my pocketbook and husband, I am currently comfortably ensconced in my role as sensible mommy and my days of flagrant spending on trendy must-haves are behind me.

Babyriffic Trendy Mommy Must Haves and a Swagalicious Giveaway!

But I know there are many moms who, like me, are not quite ready to sport “mom jeans” and oversized sweatshirts. Moms who still long to be — within budget and reason — just a bit trendy and even get their little babies and kids decked out in fabulous threads and gear. I know I may sound superficial, but sometimes funky diaper bags and jewelry, and oh so decadent coffee/espresso/latte machines may be just the thing that can reinvigorate a mom who feels kind of like she’s lost her zing since having kids and restore that mischievous twinkle in her eye. So if you’re an urban, diaper-bag-toting mama in need of a little bling, keep reading for  Babyriffic Trendy Mommy Must Haves that will make you feel “divalicious”  and a Swagalicious Giveaway!

The SKIP HOP Duo Luxe French Stripe diaper bags boast all of the features of the classic Duo, Skip Hop’s original diaper bag, including a multitude of pockets to keep everything organized, a changing pad for on-the-go convenience as well as Skip Hop’s patented Shuttle Clips. With a chic European-inspired french stripe pattern, the Duo Luxe French Stripe includes an adjustable shoulder strap and rolled handles, helping mom tote all of baby’s items in style and the wipe-clean fabric helps protect against any small spills or dirt.


Duo’s multitude of pockets and compartments easily organize diapers, bottles, sippy cups, food and toys, while keeping your phone, camera, wallet, keys and other personal items safe and dry.

The Duo features our patented Shuttle Clips, allowing it to quickly and easily convert from a shoulder bag to a stroller bag. When attached to the stroller, you can leave the shoulder strap attached or remove it for a cleaner look. The Duo has ten pockets in total, magnetic closures throughout and a comfy shoulder pad. Introduced to celebrate Skip Hop’s 10th anniversary, the bag will only be available for a limited time.

    Ok, so I wouldn’t go as far to say in a trendy mom… but, I am a wannabe trendy mom! I am slightly fashion challenged, so I ask my sis often if an outfit works of is a never wear it again outfit! I think the cute bag and accessories would definitely put me a step in the right direction! :)
