Staying True to My Style: Vanchi Ziggy Tote Changing Bag

July 4, 2013

If you say you are not conscious about your after pregnancy shape (and how quickly you’d be able to fit into your pre-pregnancy skinny jeans or favourite dress), you’re probably fooling yourself. Blooming and looking gorgeous when expecting is one thing, but after I had my first daughter 5 years ago I couldn’t wait to go back to my pre-pregnancy shape. Every little think which could boost my confidence and self-esteem was welcome.

Now with my second one on the go, I’m already making plans and resolutions: no chocolate, being more active and… finding things and ways to indulge myself.

I felt so excited from the moment I opened the box and had a first glimpse of the bag – it looks absolutely stunning! Changing bag was the last thing that comes to mind: The Ziggy Tote looks so stylish, I’d be happy to carry it even as a handbag without the baby gear in it. This is something that would definitely make me feel gorgeous again. Coming in perfect size (47(W) x 34(H) x 20(Gusset) cm), it’s small enough to use as an everyday handbag but large enough to fit all the essentials for the baby.

It’s in trendy neutral coulour and so soft in touch – it’s made of NU leather outer with nylon lining, which is an Earth friendly and animal free man made material. Because of this it can be cleaned easily with a soft cloth and warm soapy cloth. The lining is water-resistant for easy care as well.

It could be worn as a handbag or on prams/ strollers as it’s got adjustable pram strap as well as comfortable non-slip shoulder straps. It is both eye-catching and versatile and has been thoughtfully designed to enable you to use it as your day or work bag when changing days end.

The Ziggy Tote comes with a large coordinated change mat with waterproof lining, ingenious matching dummy safe/snacks container, bottle holder with insulated lining, mummy pouch, pram strap, generous sized clear wetpack for soiled or wet nappies and… to add to the style even more, a VANCHI’s signature dummy charm.

For me what makes this changing bag unique is the style really. It really helps me stay true to my own personality and look, without compromising on the essentials you’d expect from a good changing bag. Also, having both front and rear external pockets for easy access, as well as the full length zipper closure makes it really comfortable. The matching bottle warmer and snack holder come in handy, but I what I’ll be using most would be the changer with the waterproof changing mat and the clear wetpack for wet nappies (zipping away the smell).

You can buy it from VUPbaby for £99.95 and you’ve got a choice of two colours to select from.
