Carlene’s Pick: MZ Wallace
No, you don’t need to buy an actual dorky diaper bag you’ll never use by the time your kid turns three. Take, this MZ Wallace tote for example, beloved by Anne Hathaway and Jamie King. It’s nylon inside and out, so it’s easy to wipe down. It’s also lightweight, smush-able and it has half a dozen interior pouches to stash fishy crackers, bottles and boogie wipes. When diaper days are over, it’s the perf gym bag, or you can use it as a party tote for vodka, club soda and limes.
