::Sale:: Surprise Two Day Sale 6/29-6/30!

When: 6/29-6/30 9PST/12EST

What: Touring Totes, 
Sojourn Slings, 
Boxy Backpacks, 
Sightseer Carriers, 
Layette Gift Sets,  
Cross Town Clutches

Who: US Residents (Sorry Sarah! I know it sucks they don't ship to Canada!)
Many new or die hard Petunia fans have been dying for another outlet sale.  Last night around 9pm EST, Petunia announced the news that makes every PPB mama do the happy dance! It's the 2 Day Surprise Outlet Sale!!!
The first detail I searched for was WHAT was going to be included in the sale.  Now, I don't see CAKE and I am just a little down about that.  Don't get me wrong, all PPB products are gorgeous, but it's just that CAKE who always gets me.  
This is definitely a perfect opportunity for any PPB fan to stock up on bags to give out at baby showers or add on to the existing collections.  I'd say you can never go wrong with the touring totes and the boxy backpacks.  Touring totes can be used as diaper bags or purses and the boxy backpacks are roomy enough for a long day out or if you have two kids' worth of stuff.  (Or if you tend to over pack like I do) 
Have fun mama's! 
Oh I really can't believe there really IS some CAKE to make my drool.  Too bad the only carryall included in the outlet sale is the Mocha Berry Cream Cake...not really my kind of cake, but good deal at $209! If you want a cake carryall, try Polka Dot Panda, they still have some Pistachio Layer Cake Carryalls left.  Not at $209 but not the original $349 either!

How much can a Cosmopolitan Carryall hold?

It is very likely for someone who's never seen the Petunia Pickle Bottom Cosmopolitan Carryall in person mistaken it as a beautiful purse that "is not" very functional. If you do get one because you have this exceptional taste...I assure you someone might stop you somewhere and compliment on that gorgeous thing on your shoulder and as you start telling her what your baby's name is, she actually meant, no! that "other" baby on your "other" shoulder.  Ha, I know that is enough to make you blush.  You love the attention your CAKE brings you, but you often wonder if it's stealing the spotlight off of your charming little princess wooing away in the Bugaboo. 

A lot of times, beauty and functionality don't go hand-in-hand.  Yet recent years, lots of talented baby product designers have turned the baby retail world upside down and inside out.  Has Petunia Pickle Bottom done her homework? Oh yeah, since like a decade ago! Although the Cake collection has just made its appearance in recent years, the cosmopolitan carryall has become fashionable moms who don't want to give up function an easy way out.  We no longer have to pay top $ for a Burberry diaper bag that, well, breaks your arm and bank. 

Here is how Petunia present it:
Vintage style meets current-day functionality for the sophisticated mom on the go! This doctor style bag is done in aster pink and chocolate European cut velvet with coordinating aster pink wool tweed and aster pink lining. Versatile bag features detachable padded shoulder straps and a detachable messenger-style strap. Additional features include zippered changing station with plush pad and wipes case, interior key clip, two interior and two exterior bottle pockets, exterior cell phone pocket, and three internal and three external pockets.

These photos will wow you..see just how much you are able to fit in this baby!

The key clip is a life saver and all the pockets keep you organized!

As you can see...I was able to fit 2 wide-neck bottles plus all the other essentials!

One of my favorites - 2 back pockets
This is where I keep my hand lotion, lip balm, and iPhone.
