Our introduction to fashion camera bags is courtesy of Epiphanie bags where a Lola bag was provided for review purposes. No other compensation was received. All opinions are our own.
Would it surprise you if I said, I used to think the idea of a bag was silly? I used to think all you needed was one plain sturdy bag and you were set. Boy how silly I was. After living in Germany for three years and needing bags to carry groceries and all kinds of goodies from markets, I developed a love for bags! All kinds, shapes and sizes! I learned they each have their purpose!
After falling in love with bags, I then learned to appreciate those bags that are more fashionable. So when I got my new DSLR camera last December, I knew I couldn’t settle for just a plain jane bag. When I go out for my photo shoots, I don’t want to scream, “I’m carrying an expensive camera!” I want to be noticed for how great I styled my outfit that day. Or if they are drawn to my camera bag, at least they should be drawn for a great reason such as how absolutely adorable it is!
Finding the perfect Fashion camera bags
Sure, it may be a little vain, but sometimes Moms need something nice to make them feel feminine and fashionable. Goodness knows after having food puked on us, or snot rubbed all over our clothes all day long; we definitely can all use some help in that department. Am I right?
Epiphanie bags caught my eye immediately. I saw one of their bags and was instantly in love. And this was before I even realized they were camera bags! I first saw Epiphanie bags a few years ago on a blog. And wanted one badly. But when I saw they were designed for cameras, I put it off cause I didn’t have a fancy camera at that time.
Well once I got my camera I knew immediately it was time to get my coveted Epiphanie bag! And you know what? I realized that while they are designed as camera bags, that shouldn’t stop you from getting one!
Inside is the padded sectionals that are removable so you can arrange them for whatever gear you are carrying that needs protecting. That means if you just want an amazingly gorgeous bag, just because, you can take the sectionals out and use it as a regular fashion bag!
Or you can use the sectionals to help organize your bag!
But I love that I can carry my camera, lens and a few pieces of gear with me, in a fashionable bag when I’m heading out for a photo shoot. Usually I pack
- camera lens
- extra camera lens
- rocket puffer for cleaning the lens
- extra batteries
- my iPad
- my phone
- notebook for photo shoot idea sketches
- my wallet
- my remote clicker for self portraits.
- Business Cards
Basically the only thing I can’t fit in the Lola bag is my camera tripod!
I absolutely love my Epiphanie bag! I love the comfortable handles for carrying it around, and even the shoulder strap that is padded for comfort, and we can’t forget the sweet camera bling attached.
My Lola Epiphanie bag completely fits my fashionable photo life. It is well constructed and looks great every time I am out on a photo shoot. But really, I don’t need to say much about the Epiphanie bags. Their fashion seems to speak for themselves! Just see what people had to say about it from my last Karina Dresses tunic top outfit of the day post! Everyone was raving about my sweet Epiphanie bag.
I’m excited to announce that Epiphanie is our proud sponsor for the Spring Fashionista event 2014! That means from March 6-14th you can enter to win your own Epiphanie bag!
