Celebrities, Feminism and the Diaper Bag Revolution

In the recent past, there was only one consideration for choosing a good diaper bag: with or without yellow duckies? Thanks in part to the boon of celebrity babies, style has finally caught up with parenting gear.

But the birth of the designer diaper bag is not merely an idle fad. Looking deeper into the metamorphosis of diaper bags from burlap sacks to high-end designer accessories, I have found that the root of the change is the shifting gender profile of both women and men.

Hollywood Masculinity

Consider this: because diaper bags used to only be made for women, baby-toting fathers were forced to shirk around in public with flowery-looking gear. Not today; fathers are no longer chided for helping take care of their babies; they’re celebrated for helping out.

My evidence is that many Hollywood fathers — the most visible and influential examples of modern masculinity — have been seen carrying diaper bags, including Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and David Arquette.

The diaper bags these men are toting are rugged in design, or gender-neutral. Popular styles now include camouflage, dark colors, black leather, and even designs made from recycled materials like old tires or seatbelts! Watch men’s designer diaper bags in the near future; they’re booming not just because of celebrity fad but because of a changing sense of what it means to be a man. In a word: Daddy-spice.

Designer Diaper Bags and Feminism

Another piece of the puzzle about this curious style transformation is that attitudes about carrying diaper bags to work have softened in recent years. After all, 72% of American mothers now work outside the home. In response to the upsurge of working mothers, many diaper bags resemble attaché cases as well as purses.

Corporate culture no longer frowns upon childcare realities like it did a generation ago. Sleek and “no-nonsense” diaper bags help working moms blend their child-rearing duties with their office responsibilities. Also, with flex-time schedules being more common in the workplace, mothers are more free to trade off the baby gear with their partners at the office.

In my opinion, the increased visibility of working mothers has directly led to the fresh look for diaper bags. Certainly, the new culture of working moms means no longer shaving to hide the frumpy and neon-colored diaper bag in the corner. The wide choice of diaper bags now available at the local department store can also be seen as one of the unintended fruits of feminism. Who knew that the women’s movement would spell the demise of yellow duckies?

So, next time your are distraught over all the choices in designer diaper bags, consider that the diaper bag is a cultural artifact that is reflecting changes in the social construction of gender. Maybe it won’t help with the ultimate decision (a sleek handheld or maybe recycled camo?) but it may empower you to join the cultural creators.

Think I’m being coy? Look how Brad Pitt is using his celebrity status these days. He’s saving the world, one designer diaper bag at a time.

Dooney & Bourke – My Pick For Fabulous High End Handbags

Ladies, have you ever asked yourself what the rave of having a designer bag is all about? Do you sometimes wonder why we women will go out and drop half a grand or much more on a handbag that we may get tired of wearing in a month or so? I find myself thinking about that every once in awhile, but I always think back to my first experience of receiving my first handbag and how I got it.

I can remember the first time I saw a Louis up close and personal. No lie, I looked at it like it was a piece of meat and I hadn’t eaten in a week. It was like looking at the Hope diamond or something extraordinary. It was at that moment of seeing one in a store in New Jersey that made me see for myself the reason women want and go after designer handbags. It’s that feeling you get when you get it.

Now, let me be honest here with you. As much as I wanted that bag at that particular moment, my conscience would not let me spend the asking price for it. I just could not stop thinking of all the other things that I could be buying for that in-store purchase price. From that point on my desire for the bag diminished a bit, but at that very moment standing there looking hungry and desperate, I said to myself, “Just because I can’t have this particular handbag doesn’t mean that I can’t have any others.” With that thought I shook off my disappointment and walked out of the store with my head up and went about my day.

Now, I am hooked on Dooney & Bourke handbags. They are functional, durable and every bit as stylish as the others. They have styles and designs for all personalities. My particular favorite is the ‘It” handbag. These are the cutest and funnest handbags out. I can wear it with mostly anything. Although, I do think it is best to switch up your bag often, Dooney & Bourke handbags have so many different styles and sizes that you can have one for any occassion.

I still ask myself sometimes if I could ever pay that much on a handbag, and to this day the answer is, No. I have a closet full of designer handbags, including a Louis very similar to the one in the store, but guess what…it didn’t come from the store. I got my authentic handbag in the same place that I get all of my Dooney & Bourke and other designer handbags. I went online and bought it. Yes, my friend I went online and have lost my mind with handbag shopping.

Did you know that you could get your Louis, Coach, Dooney & Bourke and just about any other authentic designer handbag on live auctions? Well, I’m here to tell you. You can save a fraction of the costs of retail and walk away with that feeling of satisfaction that we all get when we make that expensive purchase for ourselves and no one else. The only difference here ladies is we aren’t left with the guilt because of the tons of money saved by buying online.

You too can have those feelings of exhilaration and excitement of having your first designer handbag or your tenth. Which ever number it is, I guarantee when you think back to what you paid in the store versus the hundreds you will save by buying online, you will be sure to continue to have those feelings often and soon lose your mind shopping online as well.

Are you ready to find out just how you can get those Dooney & Bourke handbags for a steal? Come take a look at what I have found out about live auctions and I will share the secret to having designer handbags for pennies on the dollar.

Dooney & Bourke wallets come in a variety of styles and colors as well as multiple sizes. Checkbook wallets or just the checkbook covers are available with the same DB emblem on them as the handbags. You can not go wrong when buying Dooney & Bourke handbags, but if you have one and no Dooney wallet, then your look is not complete.

The wallet doesn’t necessarily have to be the exact design as the handbag, though. That is the good thing about wearing a Dooney design. The wallets are made so that each individual style can be met. You may want a solid color wallet like the Vintage Leather to go with your handbag. And, that is cool! Or, the all too familiar Signature Anniversary wallet. These come in a multitude of styles and colors. If you want to add color to your solid color handbag, you can do that by getting a Bumblebee wallet, Doodle wallet or the popular “It” wallet.

If you don’t own a Dooney handbag right now, it’s okay to put your new Dooney wallet in your other bag for now. The Dooney wallet and handbag is a fabulous look together, but hey…as long as the colors of the wallet match your other bag, it will keep until you do get your Dooney handbag.

Dooney & Bourke Handbags – Why Buying Online Is So Important

For those of you who went online and found that fabulous handbag that you are toting around, already know about the best kept secret in fashion. That’s right ladies, the best kept secret in fashion is not who to wear, but how to get it and it happens to be on the internet.

I’m sure you have all seen the commercials about getting “it” on the internet? The commercials that tell you that whatever it is that you are searching for or needing to buy, you will find “it” online? Well, for those of you who are looking for Dooney & Bourke handbags, the ads are true for you. You can find Dooney online for costs that you would never pay in the stores. I mean prices so low that you will think that something is wrong with the items. There is a reason you can get a Dooney online at a fraction of retail and I will tell you how. Here goes the secret so listen carefully…

Think of how much money businesses typically have to pay for their building rent/lease, electricity or even employees in some cases. Those costs add up and are put into the products. The costs are then passed on to us and we have to pay for it when we buy from the stores. By buying online from places like eBay we do not have to pay those hiked up prices because having to pay for all the store costs and inventory are not an issue. This cost savings is passed directly on to consumers, effectively allowing the little guys to directly compete with the big guys.

Do you see where I’m going with this ladies? We can get our Dooney & Bourke handbag or anything else for almost pennies on the dollar because of just buying from online. It’s really simple. Celebrities are doing it all of the time. Read about it in InStyle magazine.

All you are doing is going to online auctions and bidding on your handbag and walking away with it for a steal. One thing you have to know about buying from places that save you the most money like online auctions is how to register. You must be registered to make bids or purchases in online auctions, but doing so is a snap. It’s like filling out those questionaire’s that we have all filled out when we see the shiny new car in the mall or a give-a-way to a tropical island somewhere. It takes about 5 minutes of your time and you are set from then on out.

You will be in the system and from there you can bid and make purchases freely. You may even find that you want to start selling your own goods from auctions. You never know. With the amount of handbags you are about to start buying, you just may have to to keep your rotation of new bags going. Sell a few here to buy a few there. It’s a fabulous and fun cycle.

So, when you are ready to start doing your online shopping, which should be today, you now know where to go and why. A word of advise about online shopping, ladies. You can not and I can’t stress this hard enough, wait until you have found that item you want to buy and then decide you are going to register. By the time you get back to bidding on your item, it may be gone. I have seen this happen and it hurts our feelings when we lose out on what we wanted. To avoid that all together just register immediately and let it sit until you are ready to purchase. All it takes is one time and you can start shopping whenever you are good and ready.

So, what are you waiting for…get online and start shopping while the best savings are available.

Are you ready to find out just how you can get those Dooney & Bourke handbags for a steal? Come take a look at what I have found out about live auctions and I will share the secret to having designer handbags for pennies on the dollar. I have sites that offer the best of Dooney & Bourke all on one page. All of the searching has been done for you. I not only save you money, but also time. I have even taken the time to list handbags in specific categories from highest to lowest so that you can choose which area you are ready to buy from. No more wishing for that Dooney. It will be yours soon enough.

Coach Handbags – Choosing The Right Fit For Your Body Type

Handbags have become the most popular accessory on the market over the past year. With thousands of styles to choose from, finding the perfect handbag that fits your style can be difficult. As smart as women are, we still tend to pick the wrong bag for our body type. Believe it or not ladies, a fabulous handbag can ruin your whole look if it doesn’t match your fit.

When I say “fit” I mean the size of your body. We all are aware of the different shapes and sizes of women. But, did you know that certain handbags look better on certain people? I know…your thinking, “WHAT!” It’s hard enough having to deal with weight issues, now we have to worry about our handbag making us look bigger? Relax, I’m not saying that your handbag will make you look bigger. I’m just saying that a handbag that complements your size as well as your look, is always best. Let’s use Coach for an example. Coach has a variety of sizes for all body types.

Lets say you are 5′-9″ and thin. You are the luckiest of all body types because you can pretty much get away with any size handbag. With the length of your body you can wear a large Tote or a large Hobo. These bags cover the middle of the body and allows the body to still be shown. Try not to get too carried away with your sizing though. Remember, there are handbags for wearing and handbags for travel luggage. We don’t wear our luggage for everyday wear. Your body will look especially nice if you are carrying a smaller handbag. Just be sure it fits snug under your arm. Wearing it this way shows off the waist line. It also makes the body look longer for those who are going for the tall look.

Lets say you are 5′-3″ and round. You are going to want to go with the smaller handbag. These bags will make you look taller than you really are and if worn under the arm, draws attention to the top of the body. Larger bags will only make you look shorter. And quite possibly wider.

Lets say you are 5′-6″ and curvy. Look for a handbag that accentuates your waistline. The Satchel in medium or the Hippie in medium will look great for your size. Wearing medium sizes are best for your body type because it falls just above the waist. Showing off that sexy curve of yours that’s just above the hip area.

Lets say you are full figured or plus sized. Wearing larger bags like the large Tote are best for your body type because they are made wider and larger and help to make the body look smaller. A smaller handbag with smaller straps will only add to your size and possibly make you appear bigger than you really are.

Making the right choices for you handbag is essential when putting your whole look together. Having a handbag that is too small or too big can ruin a great look. You wouldn’t put on a patent leather shoe with sweats would you? No!! Wearing the wrong handbag can do the same damage to your look. Some handbags can flatter your body type, whether it be big or small. Also, try mixing up your handbags.

Also, try to wear a different handbag for different occasions. If you are wearing jeans, wear a sportier handbag like the Scribble. If you are dressed up for a special occasion, wear the clutch or one of the smaller bags. For all other attire, the Signature handbags always look nice. Just try to match the bag with the shoes. We all have to have a brown and black handbag. Having more than one handbag is a must!

To find more information on Coach handbags like the latest style of the Coach Ergo visit my Coach handbags website. My lens will contain all the Coach handbags you could ever want for a fraction of retail prices. Searching countless hours for that Coach product you fell in love with in the store is over. Shopping on my site for Coach not only saves you time, but you will not get these low prices in the stores. The prices are so low, it will leave you wondering why you haven’t been shopping online all along. The website is http://www.squidoo.com/coach_ergo_handbags

Fossil Handbags – Uncompromised Quality at Affordable Prices

Next to diamonds, the handbag is womankind’s best friend. A handbag is such a loyal companion that it goes with us wherever we go, carrying all those precious little things we simply can’t do without in any given day. Plus, a handbag makes us look smart and fashionable. Let’s examine one brand that fits this description and more: Fossil. Fossil handbags are fashionable, stylish and so much more.

Fossil Handbags are Durable, Stylish, Functional and Affordable

There is no question about the quality that Fossil handbags offer. You can be sure of the durability of Fossil handbags, whether they are made of leather or some other material. Stylishness is just as assured, usually a combination of trendiness and timeless elegance. Fossil handbags are as functional as they can get: they have pockets and compartments for a whole bundle of women’s accessories, including cell phones and sunglasses. Matching key rings and coin purses complete the set.

We often worry whenever we find a handbag of our dreams that the price tag will make it unreachable. This is not the case with Fossil handbags. Fossil handbags come at very reasonable prices. Furthermore, when a new season stock of Fossil handbags arrives, the previous Fossil handbag styles usually go on sale.

Fossil Handbags are Made with Other Accessories in Mind

When we grow so fond of our handbag that we use them more often than we originally intended, we start looking for matching accessories. Fossil knows this, so they also offer along with the Fossil handbags such items as schedule planners of the same material and design; lipstick, key, glasses and check holders, coin purses and money holders of various sizes.

When we add accessories that go well with our handbag, we complete the look and style we are after. Having a whole set manufactured by one company — and by one like Fossil — ensures that the coordination is impeccable and the items themselves are of excellent quality.

When it comes to shoes and bags, no modern woman ever wants to be out of step. Being in style in this area and having class without having to spend a fortune is part of our idea of looking great. That should make a Fossil handbag, with its reasonable price and uncompromised quality, an irresistible proposition.

The Photo Bag, a Perfect Gift for Your Little Princess

Watching your little baby girl grow up is an experience no dad or mom will ever want to miss. Getting the chance to watch her bloom from a little baby to a darling little princess will be such a joy. Each and every year you celebrate her birthday and wonder why time has flown so fast. One moment she stays all day in her crib cooing and playing and the next moment she is going to pajama parties and sleep-overs.

All through the years you have bought her gifts for every occasion conceivable. From little baby toys, to dolls and now your pride and joy has grown up and you have observed her take a liking to dresses and such. A shift of interest that is inevitable.

So what do you get her next? It looks like she already has tons of shoes in different colors. She even has make up already. What gift could you give her this year that would not only show you love her but also a gift that she would truly appreciate?

Early teeners just can’t wait to grow up. They are now messing around with their mothers stuff and plays make believe that she is already a grown up. They tend to act like they are grown ups already and would want things that are associated with adults.

A photo bag would certainly be a gift that would show that you see what interests her and makes her happy. This will also show that you are acknowledging her developments and yet show her that she is still your baby and will always be.

Giving her a photo bag would most probably be appreciated and treasured than a regular store bought bag which could be just one of hundreds of others just like it. Many children today want to go against the flow; they don’t want something that others already have, especially in a bag. When they are unique, they get a special feeling and they get the attention that they need.

Getting your precious daughter a photo bag is not as hard as it seems. Even though you live in a town where no shops offer this kind of service, you wouldn’t have a hard time getting one just in time for the celebration. As a matter of fact, it is easier to just shop around the internet.

All you need is a digital photo that you think your daughter would love to show to the world and to all her friends. Try to talk to your spouse and get his or her advice. Check out all the photos that you have, if you don’t have digitized photos yet, you can just have them scanned.

The Classic Tote

The Classic Tote

If you have a digital camera, then you can just easily get a recent photo of hers. Another great idea is to gather a number of photos that she likes and do a collage of it. Then the collage can be printed on the bag.

After selecting the design that you want and the photo as well, you can just easily upload it to the site where you will be ordering the photo bag. Then all you have to do is pay for the bag, give it to your address and have it delivered. It will definitely be a gift she will appreciate for a long time.

Piracy Experts Tainting The Designer Handbag World?

All of us who work so hard at representing the real thing, but in the accessories market, particularly designer handbags purses and wallets are copied at a pace faster than light. Not only are these new designer handbags and other big ticket fashion items being copied they are actually trying to pass the high quality replicas as the real thing.

I suppose everyone can not afford the true designer handbags and accessories but will this monster known as piracy ever stop. Especially with the Chinese claiming the “AAA quality” thing and people here in North America trying to portray this stuff as authentic. Is it that the people are so desperate to sell these designer handbags they end up selling fakes? Or do they just not care. at least if you portray it as replica it might be fine? but still It does taint the market nevertheless.

So what is the root of the problem? Is it corrupt Chinese manufacturing companies producing these high quality designer handbag copies due to their lenient government tactics? .If a new brand or designer handbag is released by the designers it seems as though it is a rat race to produce the best replica.

The true fashion guru knows when they buy their designer handbag or purse to check the authenticity guarantee on the site they are shopping on. Nowadays, with this term authentic being thrown around so loosely it is no wonder most are skeptical of purchasing a designer handbag on the internet. Now we must steer clear of the terms like “high quality” or “full quality”, why would one need to state that our beloved designer brands are high in quality when we already know this as enthusiasts.

It has been said that mimicry is the best form of flattery. But please let the monster stop. Will it ever? Will North American governments need to do something about this eventually, or can it even be stopped? Although the government in China has been doing annual checks for piracy in factories, the factories are prepared and hide their fakes when the inspection comes. With this extent of corruption the designer handbag world just continues to flood with the high quality fake designer handbags.

The world of designer handbags and big ticket fashion items are a dream of most women of today, so the ones who shop for authentic should deserve authentic. As a true advocate for internet shopping and my love for Designer handbags i am asking the uneducated purse purchasers to really search before committing to buy their designer handbag.

Dooney & Bourke Handbags Are All Over The Internet

Having a designer handbag now-a-day’s is like having two side dishes with your meat. It just must be done to make the meal well balanced. Your handbag doesn’t have to be designer, but it does need to match with what you are wearing in order to balance out the look that you are going for. With some designer handbags you have to get the solid colored styles in brown leather or black because they only make them in a few colors. With Dooney & Bourke handbags you definitely will not have that problem.

The Picture Handbag – a Gift Moms and Grandmas Will Cherish Forever

Saying thanks to our moms for taking care of us takes a lifetime. Not because we have to, but because we want to. Showing her that we appreciate everything that she has done for us is a way of saying thanks to her. Some ways of showing her our appreciation is by buying her gifts for those special occasions in our lives.

The Photo Handbag, A Gift That will Truly Be Appreciated

Many relationships have experienced tumultuous times because a husband forgot an occasion. Sure you may be very busy, but forgetting an anniversary or a birthday is something that may be unforgiveable, well maybe for just a couple of days. There is really no excuse for this.

Besides, if you truly love your wife or your partner, you wouldn’t want to hurt her feelings now do you? Forgetting an important occasion would make her feel unimportant, unappreciated and unloved. This may sound too trivial for some men, but hey, who said that life is fair?

One great way to make amends is to give her a gift. Sure this may sound materialistic but if you get her a gift that shows how truly sorry you are, then all may be forgiven. Plus, when you start being creative, it will show that you took the time to find a good gift and this means that you love her, appreciate her and she is important to you.

So what kind of gift should you get that shows all of what has been said in the previous paragraph? What gift says you took the time and the effort to make it really personal? Definitely a Playstation 3 is out of the question. You need something feminine yet has some touches that show that it’s not just something you picked out from a rack. It would also be great if it’s practical, something she can use on a daily basis and something she can show off to her friends.

Chocolates and flowers are too cliché, you need something that lasts. Something like a handbag. But not just a handbag, it should be a handbag that shows you put some effort into it; this calls for the photo handbag. A photo handbag just shrieks of personalization, it means that you personalized it, there is something in the handbag that she will appreciate.
