We’re back with another set of bag comparisons! This series is the place where we break down and highlight features so you can easily decide the bag that’s right for you. This round, we’re featuring some well-loved classics along with a new launch piece.
No detail was spared in the design of these bags. We know it's important to not only have a fashion forward bag, but also one that is functional. You can see one of the best features of any bag is our pockets! Hydroflask bottles, coffee mugs, blender bottles and tumblers are part of motherhood and taking them with you on the go is simply a given. Notice here how well our bags handle large drink containers.
The Caroline has a tall tote look but features deep pockets for lots of organization. The Caroline is very lightweight in our luxurious faux leather and our community has said that people constantly assume it is real. The Caroline also has a magnetic closure “vanishing pocket” (see that stitch line above the two front pockets?) in front that is super handy for sliding important items securely within reach. The ample side pockets allow for water bottles without compromising the interior space and the flat bottom easily holds all your necessities without sagging down or toppling over like a traditional tote bag.
The Meggan here is featured in our lovely Old English leather. While Old English has a timeless look, we think the Meggan is amazing in any color. She can hold it all and is perfect for moms of multiples. Even when you travel light and have hardly anything in your bag, it still looks amazing. With its classic tote styling, the Meggan is also the perfect "teacher bag" great for holding supplies. Reviewers have also found that the size is perfect for day trips with littles, solo vacations, and even a camera bag with the proper insert! For those days when you need to pack extras, Meggan has ample space to throw in that extra sweater or blanket. Some days it might be just you and even when the bag is only half full, it has that perfect slouch that hangs beautifully.
The Sarah Grace is larger than the best-selling Caroline bag, this style is a workhorse of a bag without the bulk. Her side pockets each hold a 40oz Hydroflask, a large protein-style tumbler, or a one-liter water bottle. That’s some volume. The front of the Sarah Grace offers the chicest organization. The zipper pocket covers the length of the bag, the small front flap has a magnetic closure, leaving the last front pocket completely open for easy grab-n-go. It’s what dreams are made of!
Adding to the list of her perfected qualities, she converts into a backpack with padded straps that can be concealed and hidden with zipper closure. It’s a city diaper bag, a courtroom tote, a travel must-have, a mama of twins answered prayer, and so much more!
When it comes to space, most competitor bags can’t compare. You can see that all three of our bags pass the “three towel test,” for maximum storage.
Of note: the finishes on the bags. Both our vegan bag and leather bag have our signature leather tassels with hand polished stone beads. Our zippers boast our embossed Lily Jade logo on the leather pull tabs as well. Our reviewers have noted that Our Old English Leather is just truly classic natural leather with the potential to patina and get softer with time.
To further personalize your bag, Lily Jade also has a collection of woven cotton and nylon straps that provide an extra measure of customization and comfort to your crossbody carry, adding a splash of color, and an easy way to create a "fresh new look" to your well-loved Lily Jade bag.
While we know you will get compliments everywhere you go with any of our bags, you can, above all, feel put together, stylish and organized no matter which bag you choose. While all our bags have a quality feel and give you a sense of luxury, we have not sacrificed function as they are so practical for everyday living.
