Shopping: Nostalgia for the Camera Bag

[Marc Jacobs Small Shutter Camera Bag, US$325. Image: modasens.com]

My very first handbag was a little blue camera bag, though I didn’t know what the style was called at the time—I was about 10! It was dark blue, not quite as deep as navy, and very plain, which is the way I liked most things as a child. I’m pretty sure I got it at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s.

I have no idea what happened to it (though, as faux leather, it probably didn’t hold up too well), but camera bags seem to be making a comeback, and I am toying with the idea of getting one for my birthday.

Here are a whole whack of styles I’ve come across. Do any catch your eye?

My favorites are the Gucci Soho Disco, the Longchamp 2.0,  the Rag & Bone Mini Flight Camera Bag, and the Vasic Collection Anselmo. I quite like the blue Moschino, as well, except for the massive gold logo on the side.

  1. These are all super cute:-)
    I really like the Baggu Mini Crossbody in Oxblood (I can’t get enough of this color), Marc Jacobs Recruit crossbody bag in Teal (I feel like teal just goes with any season), Tory Burch Thea shoulder bag in French Gray (Gray goes with everything, in my opinion!) and the Vasic Collection Anselmo Crossbody Bag in White (White is just so classic, although I don’t think I could justify it, i’d be terrified to get anything on it!!)
