This mama is busy! And when I say busy, I mean, two laptops, folio, binder, DSLR camera and multiple notebooks occupy my bag most days. I have actually gone through times where I left the house with two purses, because just one couldn’t fit everything I needed. Hot mess express coming through!
There are many companies who make large totes, the trouble is, 99% of the time it is literally a giant bucket, with no compartments to actually fit the things you need properly, resulting in a complete disorganized disaster inside your bag. And adding insult to injury, those also tend to lack in quality, making them last, oh about 2 minutes.
So, when I started a search for that perfect bag that would fit everything I needed, The Constanza bag by Luna by Lavoie kind of stopped me in my tracks. I mean, yes the blush color had me at “hello pretty!” but then came everything else on my list. Stylish, made out of luxurious fine Italian leather, water resistant lining, and more compartments than I thought I could ever even utilize! Don’t worry I manage to still fill them all daily. When I think of true luxury Italian leather companies I tend to refer to everyone’s staples that don’t exactly scream ‘every day versatility’ let alone offer it. Well, it has been amazing to discover a brand like this, which I am sure will become an instant classic. To me, when a brand can mix style, with versatility and great quality, you have a recipe for success! I have carried my Constanza bag through countless airports, filled it with snack and games for the girls, used it as my go-to equipment holder during photoshoots and guess what, it still looks and feels brand new.
A little bit more on why this brand is a standout to me. You know I love brands created by strong women and this one was thought up by Luna founder Marina LaVoie, when she was on her way to motherhood and discovered a huge gap in options when searching for the perfect, stylish diaper bag. What was originally going to be a diaper bag brand, quickly evolved to the perfect for all brand. I love seeing stories of strong women who decided to search for an answer instead of settling for the only available options on the market. Marina knew what she wanted to create and she did it!
The end result is a beautifully crafted collection of versatile, fashion forward, and well-made pieces that will last a lifetime. I am endlessly glad that I finally have a bag that is my catch all. The difference it has made in my daily routine has really been unparalleled. What are some of your favorite styles? I’ve been crushing on the Valentina, which would be the perfect bag/backpack combo bag for traveling with kids! My absolute favorite little goodie though, is the business card holder, which I just swear by!
Hope you’ve found your perfect bag and have a fabulous busy day, whatever it brings with it!
