Win a NEW Camera Bag * You Pick the Style and Color

Contest: Enter to win a Jo Totes Camera Bag

Are you forever on the search for the perfect camera bag?  There are so many different styles and types of camera bags out there.  How do I know?  Because I’ve owned most of them at one time or another.  I am a firm believer that just like there is no perfect food, there is no one-size-fits-all camera bag.  I use different camera and lens bags depending on the situation and occasion. The common denominator for me, they have to be both functional and attractive.  From my Shootsac for times when I am on the go and need to switch lenses quickly, to my large Jill-E Jack bag for rolling all my gear and for travel, I need variety. In case you are wondering, I have tons of purses too… And I tend to love camera bags that look like over-sized purses and for that reason I have owned a Kelly Moore bag and my newest one, the Jo Tote camera bags.

For those of you who LOVE the look of a purse style camera bag, and who want to carry with you a camera, a lens or two and stuff like your wallet and a lip gloss, you must check out my latest advertiser to the MCP Blog, Jo Totes.  April, the owner, sent me two styles. The Rose, which has a dressy, classic look, is just beautiful.  It would be dressy enough for toting around at a wedding yet fun enough for every day.  Plus it comes in great colors. The Rose is the perfect day bag for carrying your camera and an extra lens with your purse items while out and about. The Missy, which fits a little more and can handle more weight than the Rose, has a fun, vintage look. And lots of pockets. Even after trying both, I am torn on which I prefer.  But Jo Totes are so reasonably priced, you may just want to get one of each.  The Tote style looks really nice too, but I cannot speak from experience for that one.

    I’m loving the Rose bag, of course it is my last name, but I think the Missy would suit my needs better, plus it comes in pink!

    I Love the Jo tote bags. I have Olive that I got when they first came out last year. I am thinking I need to add a Rose to my ever growing camera bag collection in either teal or Clementine.

    I would have to say the Missy appeals to me the most.

    OMG I love these bags! I can’t decide which color in the ROSE. Either the plum, teal, or marigold.

    I fell in love with the Pink Missy from when I first saw it awhile back. <3 <3 <3 I love the look and it fits my personality so well. That and I have a HUGE… no wait… HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE bag/purse/handbag fetish. Most women have shoes. I have purses/bags/handbags. And to have a stylish camera bag? Oh, that would just be totally awesome!

    I am so dying to get the Missy bag (black). But alas, by purse refuses to corporate! 🙁 I have been drooling at Jo Totes bags for a VERY long time! I will upload a picture of my current, grubby makeshift camera bag soon… trust me, it’s awful!

    Hope I win!
