One of my favorite gifts this Christmas was this Jo Totes camera bag. I’ve been desperate for a decent, fairly large camera bag. And I preferred a cute one that could disguise itself as a purse. My camera bag inventory consisted of the square Nikon bag that came in the kit when I bought my DSLR and a small, gray, mannish messenger bag I purchased from Best Buy because I needed a quick fix for something I could throw over my shoulders on a trip to DC.
In all of my blog reading I discovered Jo Totes and was positive that this was exactly what I was looking for. When I was asked what was on my Christmas list I directed everyone to Jo Totes. I squealed on Christmas morning when I opened a large package and found their Rose bag in bronze. In less than a month of owning this bag it has become one of my absolute essential items – second to coffee and chapstick.
After using my beloved Jo Tote for a short while I thought it would be fun to show you the different ways I have used my new gem. I carry it everywhere and decided to do a little “remix” to show you how I organize, store, and carry my items.
*Note: Since I had to use my DSLR camera in the examples, these shots were taken with my point & shoot camera.
1.Battery pouch / 2.Flash difuser / 3.Wallet / 4.Business Cards / 5.Phone / 6.Camera body + 35mm lens / 7.User manual / 8.Flash / 9.Memory card storage / 10.18-55mm lens / 11.55-200mm lens
1.Accessories pouch (where I keep my purse “nick nacks”) / 2.ipad (case from here) / 3.Phone / 4.Camera body & 35mm lens / 5.35mm lens / 6.Business cards / 7.Mini notebook (where I jot down EVERYTHING) / 8.Wallet
1.Camera battery charger / 2.18-55mm lens / 3.35mm lens / 4.Camera body / 5.ipad (case from here) / 6.MacBook / 7.MacBook charger / 8.ipad charger / 9.My Passport hard drive / 10.Memory card case
And because I know you’re probably thinking, “The bag looks so full it probably won’t zip!” here is proof that this bag doubles as a Mary Poppins bag and will zip up. It also comes with an over-the-shoulder strap for when it gets hefty when you’re doing serious hauling.
I’m so happy with my new bag that I’m planning on purchasing a few more in different styles & colors whenever I have some extra cash to spend. Since I carry my camera and laptop/ipad around almost everywhere this is a great solution…and it’s stylish! It’s important to be cute, duh!

Note: I was not compensated for this post. I just really like my new bag.
