Lily Jade Bag Comparison- The Shaylee, The Madeline, and The Meggan
It’s our favorite time again! We have another comparison for you, but this time with a few of our well loved leather Lily Jade styles. We love being able to help you decide which bag is right for you as we know you want to make a good choice on your investment.
First, let’s compare the similarities of our bags. Our convertible diaper bags were created to allow mothers to comfortably tote their baby essentials while still looking and feeling stylish. With all our styles, you get a multi-functional option of being able to wear your bag three ways- tote style, crossbody, and backpack. The three-in-one option makes our bags the “swiss army knife” of diaper bags!
Another feature of all our bags is the attention and care to details. Our leather bags are premium and made with durability to last for years. Our plush signature jade lining provides a luxurious feel. Our leather tassel strands have a finished surface on every side. Our interior pockets are trimmed with leather. Our deluxe leather line and quality craftsmanship ensures your investment will last for years to come.
Next, let’s discuss organization. With each of our full-grain leather bags, you receive an organizer tote insert. Along with keeping mom organized, we have found many other useful ways to use this around your home when you’re not on the go. The Shaylee, The Madeline, and The Meggan automatically come with the 3.0 insert which is removable & machine washable. It also features a top zipper closure, one large zipper closure insulated snack pocket, two insulated interior bottle pockets and one front anti-microbial zipper pocket. It is also designed with additional structure standing alone with ease, and includes side d-rings for stroller straps, or a crossbody strap, and also an improved outer elastic sippy cup pockets. Moms love that they can ask someone to get something out of the bag and can explain exactly where it is!
When it comes to space, you can see that all three of our bags pass the “three towel test.” Most competitor bags can’t compare. You will also notice in our images that even with a packed insert at the bottom of each bag, there is STILL more room for a rolled up blanket on top. These bags have space in spades!
We obviously feel you can’t go wrong with any of our bags, but we also want to break down and highlight various features so you can easily decide the bag that’s right for you.
Let’s start with the Shaylee. This is the pocket lovers dream! For this comparison, we are featuring our camel leather the lightest of the three. Camel goes with absolutely everything and is the perfect neutral. With this bag, there’s no need to switch between a diaper bag and purse. We have combined style with functionality. The magnetic front pockets are perfect for quick access to keys and small essentials and the zippered back pocket easily holds a large phone perfectly. Reviewers have even said that they use it as a diaper bag on weekends and a work bag during the week. It can hold all the gear for three under three (that’s 3 in diapers!!) AND a laptop, notebooks, and lunch when heading to work.
Next, we’ll look at the Madeline. For this comparison, we are featuring the bag in our original chocolatey brown brandy leather. This is your ride-or-die bag. She’s our most popular bag for a reason. The front pockets are an absolute dream making it so easy to access your most used items. This bag also feels very light for being an all leather bag and it happens to be very comfortable in all three carries! Don’t take our word for this classic beauty. Look at firsthand what one of our reviewers had to say about it:
“I bought a Madeline in brandy nearly four years ago, and since then have used it literally every day with my four children through everything from airplane trips to library visits to grocery runs to nights out with just my husband (when I quickly ditch the baby stuff and bring it anyway because it’s my nicest bag and I love it so). The leather has worn nicely and is softer than ever. The backpack carry is a lifesaver for me. I am a frugal gal, and this was a big purchase for me, but I do not regret it one bit. There is so much lovely leather and quality hardware in this bag - there is not one place where I feel like they skimped on materials or cut corners. It is designed to last, and I am here to tell you that it does!”
Last, but certainly not least we have the Meggan 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. 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. Even when you travel light and have hardly anything in your bag, it still looks amazing. With it’s 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!
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. 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.
