a little bag of jo

Way back when, I went on a hunt for the perfect camera bag. I had just made one of my biggest Black Friday investments of my shopping career (my baby, aka: my Nikon dslr) and I needed a protective way to tote it around with me! So after a lot of searching, and a commitment to avoid bulky man-bags at all costs, I came across a new love: Jo Totes. 


This bag is perfectly sized: it's large enough to fit my camera, its goodies, and even all of my other daily necessities (like my wallet and makeup). The best part? The inside can be customized, with the detachable padded sections, to fit exactly what I need to carry. 

Even though, their bags come in a variety of colors and styles that match any outfit and personality, I fell in love with this Rose tote in black, knowing that it would match pretty much everything in my closet. Besides - black is classy, right? When I went through with placing my order though, they were completely sold out of the style I had my eye on! I tried doing more shopping, hoping I would find another bag to protect my new baby in, that I could order that day, but the shopping was futile. I was already in love, so I decided to wait, until I would be able to order the bag of my dreams. And I am so glad that I did! Now I can take my camera with me everywhere I go and not have to sacrifice the  protection of my camera for the looks of a cute bag. 

What about you?

    I was so excited for this post because of the picture of the cute bag. But when I realized it was a camera bag--I immediately got 100x more excited! I just got a DSLR too and I'm in need of a cute camera bag. And actually I'm in need of a new black purse too. AH! this just made my day--I'm going to go check it out. :) Thanks for sharing!

  6. I've been eyeing up those Jo Totes bags for quite some time but find that even though I invest in all sorts of nice bags, I end up using some cheap purse I picked up at some discount fashion store until it is in threads. Weird hey?

  8. This is perfect. I've been looking for a really cute camera bag and have yet to find one. Love it :)

  9. I like Jo Totes! I have a Ketti Bag and will probably never change since it cost me an arm and leg and a lot of patience to get it (back before she mass-produced). lol :)
