if you’ve spent anytime hanging around these parts, you know by now that i’m a sucker (and i mean sucker) for a great bag. my collection is mostly out of control, but i try to put all of them on heavy rotation so that they don’t collect too much dust in my closet. i have a vast collection of handbags, totes, clutches, and tiny bags that don’t really have a purpose but continue to be purchased because they’re cute and tiny. i love tiny things! (i now understand why Mike rolls his eye when i tell him i bought a new purse. it’s all making sense).
the one thing that i have always – well since i’ve owned my DSLR – wanted is a camera bag that’s easy to travel with and is cute. call me crazy, but there aren’t many of them out there, at least not that i’ve come across. especially since i live in the city now, i always go to grab my camera before heading out but then realize that i don’t exactly want to chuck it in my purse with all of my other junk, so i relent to letting my iPhone be my camera for the day and am always a little disappointed.
and then i was introduced to Jo Totes and all of my functional and stylish camera bag needs were met.
there are a variety of things that i love about this bag. first, it’s stinkin’ cute. it’s nicely padded to protect my camera and accessories and i don’t have to worry about any scratches to anything. it may not look like it, but it is roomy inside. i was able to fit my camera and my fold up tripod easily into the bag, which is amazing. it comes with separators, so that the bag can be well organized and hold other lenses, accessories without too much trouble. it’s really well made AND it has enough room to throw in the essentials, like a wallet, phone, keys, and a lipstick or two. not to mention, it could double as a laptop carrier when i’m not toting my camera around with me. are you convinced about how awesome it is yet?
