Glam Camera Bags + Straps

I’ve always strived to make things that are somewhat icky or bulky-looking appear more girl-ified.  And I know I’m not alone here.  I mean, who didn’t go crazy with glitter glue pens for the better part of their childhood?

The hubby actually bought me this super snazzy (and supposedly user friendly … err, I think I know how to turn it on) camera many moons ago, and I rarely use it.  Part of it is that I am always running around like a crazy woman and I generally just forget it (and later kick myself for it), but also, and I know this sounds awful, it’s big, black, bulky, and kind of ugly.  There are some guys and gals who just look so cool rocking cameras around their neck, but they also look so cool in glasses, skinny jeans, and suspenders.  I blame hipsters for making me feel self-conscious in skinny jeans!  Boy have I run off on a tangent …

Right – the ugly camera.  It’s ugly.  And I make my husband carry it.  When I actually remember to bring it.

But not anymore!  Because apparently there are chic Rebecca Minkoff camera cases.  I never leave the house without a cute handbag to go with my look, so maybe, just maybe, if my camera were hidden in an RM bag, I’d remember to take it along!

Then there are the adorable camera straps with ruffles and sequins on them.  Girl-ified to the maximum.  It’s like glitter glue pens all over again.  I may just DIY this one, but the photos are so lovely!  You really wanna carry your camera now, don’t you?

Also, my camera isn’t at all quirky and vintage and cool like the camera in the pictures. Only awesome artsy hipster-types carry those.

    • Lexi

      That is fabulous news! Where did you hear that? #cannotwait

  3. Oh I’m obsessed with that bag. I refused to buy a camera bag bc they are all so ugly and bulky! But I will buy this!!!! Until then, I want that sequin camera strap!!! So cute! I’m so glad you posted this. And thanks so much for your comment today. It made me feel better that I can contact you to vent 🙂

      I felt the same, and even now that I have one, I don’t use it nearly as much as I should. But the pictures are SO much better! The pretty carrying cases help. 🙂

    Those cases are fantastic– can’t wait for them to become available! And I am fully in love with the Bloom Theory straps– have been lusting after them forever!

    • Lexi

      Totally agree – I’ve been drooling over the Bloom Theory straps for months!

    All of these pieces are just beautiful! Love the camera straps, so fun! And that camera bag/purse is PERFECT! I would take it everywhere.

      I actually think I’d use the camera bag as a night-time purse also! It’s so classic!

    I have like a big canon 7d, there’s no way I could trust to use one of those straps but they’re so pretty. I know there’s a girl (she made Susie Bubble’s strap) who makes them for DSLR’s though so I may just have to invest.

  7. We are going to New York soon and this would be the perfect accessory (both bag and strap)! It would make me look not so touristy. Now…to talk my husband into buying it for me 🙂

  8. Straps are my favorite way to pretty up my camera, and they make me loos less like a tourist!
