The Songbird ($199) comes in raven, saddle, orchid and cobalt and not only has slots to keep your money separate from your camera equipment...
...it also has a removable basket design, which allows you to remove an inside section and easily transition it to an everyday bag.
We never knew a camera bag could be as girly as the Mimi ($199), which also comes with a removable shoulder strap.
The Chapel convertible backpack ($229) lets you carry a lot of heavy camera stuff while keeping your hands free.
While we love our smartphone snapshots, many of us break out our good cameras when we?re at special friends-and-family occasions (or, ahem, for our grilled-cheese-sandwich blog). But no matter our skill level, from hobbyist to professional photographer, we?re faced with carrying an ugly padded camera bag. Not a good look.
It?s akin to wearing a JanSport backpack with a couture dress.
But now that we?ve discovered Kelly Moore bags, we can transport our camera in style. Developed by a professional photographer, they come in beaucoup colors and recall contemporary bag classics: The Mimi style ($199) has gathers like Prada, while the Riva design ($149) evokes Marc Jacobs?s Frankie satchel.
Each of the ten leather designs has customizable foam dividers to cradle camera bodies and interchangeable lenses. And there are numerous zippers and pockets to keep camera stuff (memory cards, filters, lens cloths) separate from purse stuff (credit cards, keys and even an iPad). The website has a handy online checklist to help you decide which style?s right for you.
