Current Obsession: Camera Purses

Camera bags exist to serve a very specific function: to safely and securely hold camera equipment. Most have padded compartments designed to fit a DSLR camera body, a lens or two, a flash, and maybe spot for cash and keys. Unfortunately, they’re usually UGLY. I’m talking black-and-gray-nylon-and-elasticized-mesh ugly.

When I’m carrying my camera around getting street style shots or working on a photography project, I prefer to carry a bag that will fit my equipment AND my lip gloss/phone/wallet thankyouverymuch. Thanks to other enterprising women who feel the same way, there are plenty of non-ugly options for those of us who prefer to carry our cameras in style:

1. Epiphanie Lola Bag, 164.99 I love the styling and slightly slouchy shape.  | 2. Emera Classic Canvas bag, $169 Refined, simple, classic.  |  3. Cheeky Lime Livy bag, $129 This style has the added feature of a space for your laptop, too! 4. Kelly Moore Libby bag, $249 All of the Kelly Moore bags look like legit stylish purses. Nice.5. JoTotes Millie bag, $87 Rachael had one of these at the Holiday Style Bash. I was all set to compliment her on her cute purse, and it turned out to be a camera bag!

    Here I was thinking “Bags shaped like cameras!” not “Bags to hold cameras!” Which is a good alternative, too. Especially that Millie bag. LOVE IT.
