REVIEW: Layla Grayce- Serena and Lily

I have a confession to make. I love huge handbags. The bigger the better. Sometimes I use diaper bags as handbags. My newest favorite bag is the Gypsy Tote by Serena and Lily.

I was given the greatest pleasure of reviewing this tote for Layla Grayce. After using it for several weeks, I can honestly say that there isn’t a flaw in this bag at all. The tote is fully loaded with pockets, one of my favorite features, which makes this the perfect bag for busy moms.
The strap on this great tote is wide and adjustable. I am able to comfortably wear it on my shoulder or across my body. I loaded it up with water bottles, an umbrella, rain ponchos, and other mom necessities and carried it with me for a week through the Disney parks without any discomfort.
My sister is quite envious of the Gypsy Tote and is hinting she wants one as a gift for her baby shower. After close examination of the bag, she said that in addition to all the terrific pockets, she appreciated the wipeable interior of the bag. She borrowed the tote and filled it with a changing pad, diapers, wiped, pacifiers, baby toys, a clutch, and snacks. She remarked that the depth of the tote seemed never-ending. Even after stuffing it full of items, it still didn’t look bulky. I think I will need to make sure she receives one soon (very soon, considering Luke was born six weeks early!)!
I adore all the little details on the Gypsy Tote- from the blue leather button closure to the beautiful embroidery on the front of the bag.
Here is the information about this beautiful bag from the Layla Grayce website:
The one-bag-holds-all solution for the one-mom-does-all lifestyle, this gorgeous Gypsy Tote was created by (and for) Serena when she couldn't find the perfect "un"diaper bag. It's got a pocketgypsy 2 for everything. It hangs perfectly over a stroller handle. It scrunches up to fit inside another bag. It's machine washable and wipeable. But best of all, it's modular design means it's only a diaper bag when you want it to be, so it looks amazing through the bottle-and-binky years and beyond. Beautiful flax linen with leather detailing and hand-embroidery inspired by the design of Serena and Lily's original Prague Collection Market Sling. Leather disk/button closure for easy access. Adjustable strap for a perfect fit. Machine washable. Interior is also wipeable. Consider adding the coordinating brag book or diaper changing pad.
