Becoming a mom is synonymous with the word change. I’d say it’s the biggest change in one’s life. I went from independent, alone, looking after only myself (and then myself and my husband) to having a being who depending on me for every breath. I even adopted some puppies to practice for motherhood. Nothing could prepared me for the way my life changed after I saw my first little girl take her first breath. Priorities shifted. No longer did I have time to plan bimonthly manicures and hours at the mall. It was nappies and binkies and breast feeding, and formula when that didn’t work.
The biggest worry on my mind? Fashion. Just kidding. But really, you become a new mom, and fashion goes out the window. Suddenly, it’s more about which shirt doesn’t have spit up on it than whether or not it’s on trend this season. Oh how I remember the days of sweats and baggy shirts (like I still don’t have those days) thrown on amidst trying to fit in sleep, nursing, and diaper changes. The last thing on my mind was fashion.
Back then, I wish I’d had one thing that was totally me, outside of my life as a mother. That’s just what Rebekah Scott Designs gives new moms with her line of customizable diaper bags. From style to fabric to accents, RSD lets a new mom choose every single aspect of her new baby bag. And, for a new mother who suddenly lost a lot of control over her life (how can something so small affect so much?), choice is a big thing.
Let’s get down to just what I love about my RSD bag. First, there’s the fact that I got to pick every element of design from first snip to last stitch (for those who are counting that’s fabric, accent materials, and design). RSD made it easy to choose with a preview of how each available fabric looked on each style of bag. It even shows you how the black or brown faux leather accents will look. After you’ve done all that, you just have to pick the interior fabric. Here’s where it got really easy for me, I chose “Rebekah’s choice” and let her pick for me. I wasn’t disappointed. She has fabulous taste!
Stay tuned, coming next week- three ways to wear a diaper bag and never look like a mom (well, the baby on your other arm may give it away but at least your bag won’t!).
