I moved to the Southeast in 1999. As a native Oregonian I was transplanted into a world of new heritage brands like Vera Bradley. No, seriously, I had never heard of Vera. Keen and Northface? Yes. Vera or my review subject, Petunia? Not so much.
This bag obsessed girl had a whole new world opened to her…
I’ve never quite fallen to the Vera love, it always perplexed me why college girls wanted to carry around a quilted granny bag, but Petunia? Classic and preppy with a hint of whimsy? More my speed.
I was gifted the Petunia Pickle Bottom Sashay Satchel in ‘Calming Cosmos’ from Fall 2012
Initial reaction – so cute! The bag also seems extremely well made, as it should for its price point. I have it on good authority (the bag purchaser and life long fan) they last forever and her daughter totes along the PPB bag that served as her own diaper bag to her sophomore year of high school.
The cute pattern in the first photo is no longer available, but there are plenty of cute Spring 2013 designs in stock, including the three shown here.
Touted as a versatile handbag to diaper bag the Petunia Pickle Bottom Sashay Satchel also transforms to a backpack to free up those hands
It also contains a matching wipeable changer, a plastic wipe case, 2 outside pockets for mama’s belongings, a key clip and ‘four’ bottle pockets. The reason I’d say the satchel only has two true pockets, is because they are lined up directly opposite of each other and you cannot use both at the same time with either the Medela or Avent style bottles I tried.
The satchel packs it in though! A good bag for day trips or even overnight the size and expansion capability delivers and has room for both myself and baby M.
