| Camera Bag - £33, eBay |
When I think of a camera bag, I tend to think of something like this; practical, durable, convenient...but let's be honest, it's not winning any style awards. I bought my Nikon way back in September and although I absolutely love it to death, I have neglected my responsibility to provide it with a nice, comfy bag to live in. I've basically been lugging it around in the box it came in (not exactly convenient) or carefully placing it in your run-of-the-mill handbag (not exactly safe). However, if you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen me very excitedly post a picture of this little beauty last week.
It wasn't until I searched 'Camera Satchel' into eBay that I found there are a whole host of cute, stylish camera bags in a range of colours perfect for the more fashion conscious photographer (although I would hardly refer to myself as a photographer - auto mode all the way!). I bought this one for about £33 and it was delivered for free all the way from China in just six days. On eBay it looks like a kind of coral-pinky colour, but when it arrived I was pleased to see it's actually a lovely eye-catching bright red. It's perfectly padded inside and has two separate compartments for the lense and the body, and it has a convenient pocket under the flap which is the perfect size for my purse. It's not leather despite being advertised as leather on eBay, but it looks pretty real and I did think £33 was quite cheap for real leather! It came with a little tassel but I thought it looked a bit rubbish so I took it off, but I I'm keeping my eyes peeled for something else to hang on it to make it a bit unique. I'm absolutely thrilled with my camera bag and cannot wait to take it on it's first proper outing to London Fashion Week next month! x
