if you ask me, style and function go hand in hand. especially when it comes to accessorizing, i look for things that fit within my personal style and serve a purpose (generally speaking). the easiest example of this is using a handbag. although the outside of the bag is what catches my eye first, before falling in love too quickly, i always check out the inside to see how large it is, how many pockets it has, if it has a divider inside, etc.
the Siena Leather Camera Bag from Jo Totes is a great example of style and function in one. while it's main purpose is to make carrying a DSLR camera easier (and safer!), it also has plenty of room to hold your regular handbag items, like your phone, keys, wallet, lip balm, and whatever else you need! truthfully, i tend to leave my camera at home when i'm traveling or doing something in the city merely because i don't have a safe and pretty way to transport it. not so anymore!
i love the shape of this bag - the structure of it is what allows for the protection of the camera, while also making it stylish and versatile. the leather is a rich cognac and the adjustable strap allows for easy wear. the adjustable pads on the inside make it easy to store an extra lens and keep the body of your camera from moving around and risk any scratches or damage.
i'm happy to say that i no longer have a good reason to leave the DSLR at home, thanks to Jo Totes! i'm looking forward to bringing my camera with me when i travel, especially when i go to see my nephew, so that i can snap some photos that aren't on my iPhone ;)
