Ju-Ju-Be has released their new Legacy Collection with beautifully designed bags made of their Earth Leather…instead of trying to tell you what Earth Leather is, I will let Ju-Ju-Be do it for you…
“We wanted something as supple, beautiful and durable as leather, but without the impact on the environment that tanned animal hides have. We also wanted one more critical thing that we thought was going to be a pipe dream — we wanted it to be machine-washable. After countless hours of engineering and research, we’ve got it. We’re proud of it. We love it.” – Ju-Ju-Be Blog
The Behave and Be Fabulous are two of Ju-Ju-Be‘s new bags from their spring collection. First up for review and a photo shoot is the Be Fabulous in black Earth Leather!

Here is a picture of the interior of the Ju-Ju-Be Be Fab packed up. I packed it as I would for traveling on a plane: my Pompidou, BE Kiss Me Clutch, a Be Quick (another fits on top, but I left it out so you could see the pockets), a sippy for one child on the inside, a huge pack of wipes, and then I would put a medium be set in the other pocket. Travel documents or other items fit great in the pocket that runs lengthwise along the flap!
Very useful bottle pockets on the Be Fab! I can fit a sippy in one outside pocket and another on the opposing interior pocket. With my coffee mug in the opposite, that just verifies that the Be Fab is a great travel bag for me.
The flap on the Be Fab stays open nicely with the gussets and has room for two pics of your kids, loved ones, pets, or whoever. The long zippered pocket goes all the way down and make a perfect spot for a few extra diapers or even accessories for your laptop.
The back of the Ju-Ju-Be Be Fab has a large full length zippered pocket that has two slip pockets in it. This pocket is large enough to fit…
a book! Again, great for travel on a plane, day trips, or weekend getaways!
The front “mommy pocket” on the Ju-Ju-Be Be Fab is wonderful! The sunglass case is larger than those in other bags allowing for you to slide your sunglasses in and out with ease. The slip pocket (left side closest to you), key fob, and small zippered pocket are all nicely sized as well. I can keep my mail keys and gum in the slip pocket, receipts in the zippered pocket and my Belen Echandia Protect Me in the slip pocket next to the sunglass case.

Additionally, you can leave the zippers at the top so that you can unzip them with one hand and quickly reach in to access what you need…all without removing the bag from your shoulder.

The dimensions of the Ju-Ju-Be Be Fab are: 12″H x 14″ W x 6″ D so depending on the size of your laptop, this would make for a great work bag as well!
Now onto some fun pictures…comparing the Be Fabulous to other bags!
Here we have (from left to right): Ju-Ju-Be Behave, Ju-Ju-Be Be All, Ju-Ju-Be Be Smart, Ju-Ju-Be Be Fab, and the Fleurville Sling Tote.

A front comparison picture of the Ju-Ju-Be Be Fabulous and the Fleurville Sling Tote. As you can see, they are pretty similar in size, which to be honest, surprised me. I thought the Be Fabulous would be a bit too big for me, but the size is GREAT!

A front comparison picture of the Ju-Ju-Be Be Smart and the Ju-Ju-Be Be Fabulous…again very similar in size.
A comparison of the Ju-Ju-Be Be Fabulous to the Ju-Ju-Be Behave. The Behave is shorter in the center and carries like a purse.

What are my overall impressions? It is lovely! The Be Fab is perfect for overnight trips, an airplane bag, a work bag, a day trip bag, or a “purse” diaper bag that is a bit bigger for when your children are younger.
One of my favorite features is that is does not feel boxy when carried. The tapered shape makes it so comfy and also makes it feel less bulky. The bottle pockets are a great dimension and fit even my big coffee mug…major bonus! There are pockets galore; I would be amazed if someone could not find a place to store everything they need. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how Ju-Ju-Be got rid of the mesh pockets and made them all the same as the interior lining. Nothing snags on them when you take stuff in and out of the pocket and well, it just gives it a classier look.
A fun twist I would love to see? The ability to customize it by changing the lining to our favorite prints! Now THAT would add a bit more fab to the Be Fabulous.
