Timi and Leslie

Handbag designer Leslie Newton may have given up comedy but she did not lost her unique sense of humor. The one time comedian whose sketches were featured on Saturday Night Live found a new calling when her passion for redesigning vintage furniture and clothing soon caught the eyes of influential friends and launched her on a career that would find her designing kitschy and quirky diaper handbags that would be all the rage among the ultra hip. Newton and her one time partner Timi began with a simple handbag design that featured a clear vinyl coating that became known as the bebe diaper bag. Newton always enjoyed finding vintage fabrics and material and covering each with vinyl much like her grandmothers couch. The retro chic was soon popular with the nouveau riche and what started as a lark became an international business success. Leslie took the road less traveled and instead of adding to the bulky, backpack style of modern day diaper bags that are the equivalent of toddler tote SUVs she harkened back to a simpler time when ladies in the 1930s through the 1960s carried bags with classic, elegant shapes that were quirky yet still feminine. At the Dada Baby Boutique we celebrate the quirky and kitschy as much as the functional and classical. The beauty behind Leslie Newton designs is the sophisticated sense of humor one finds in the vintage fabric and vinyl coating that brings back retro style but still has a modern edge. The Dada Baby Boutique carefully selects the best from the Timi and Leslie collection so you can bring back your favorite era with stylish and unique diaper bags that says you have your own idea of what fashion is. The Timi and Leslie Tag a Long diaper bag features vinyl coating with water resistant lining, a coordinated changing pad, adjustable stroller straps, magnetic snap closure and seven sturdy pockets, four on the outside and three inside. The Timi and Leslie Large Bebe Bag is a classic of retro chic. Available in exotic color combinations including Garnet, Dhyani and Trixie this durable bag features vinyl coating, a single adjustable shoulder strap, top-flap with magnetic closure, side exterior pockets and front exterior zip pocket.
