Chic DSLR Camera Bags, Pt. 2

If you recall my search for a fabulous DSLR bag, my fantasy bag was the gorgeous Ona Nevis bag.  Alas, it's so spendy that I'd have to sell the DSLR to get the bag.  So back to square one.

Ona Nevis Bag

I briefly considered the Epiphanie Lola bag, which at $164.99 is considerably more reasonable than the Nevis.  If it's good enough for the Pioneer Woman and Dooce, it's good enough for me.

I was concerned though that it might be a bit chunky.  I want a bag that I can alternate between wearing on the shoulder and slung across like a messenger bag, and the Lola looks like it would stick out quite a bit when worn the second way (esp. considering the junk in my trunk . . . and hips).  Also, since I'm a total beginner and don't need to carry around multiple lenses, I can easily get away with a bag with a slimmer profile.

Does such a bag exist?  

Why yes.  Behold the Kelly Moore B-Hobo bag:


It's chic, slim, and as cute worn on the shoulder as it is as a messenger bag.  It's $159.  Plus it comes in green, walnut, blackgrey, mustard, and teal.

All the bags, regardless of outside color, have a gorgeous lavender lining.

Now I just need to decide on a color.

I'm leaning toward the grey (versatile) and mustard (fun).  Both are backordered for now, but the grey is coming in November, and the mustard in early December.

What do you think?

P.S. If you're also intrigued by the Epiphanie Lola and the Kelly Moore B-Hobo, the most helpful reviews of both I found (with gorgeous and very helpful photos) were written by photographer Michelle Moore.  See her Lola review here.  And her B-Hobo review here.

thank you so much for all this research. i was going to get my sister a gift certificate for epiphanie (they just started offering them), but now i'm going to look into the other bag. i'm with you--the lola is very cute but i'm wondering if it's too clunky.

Ahhhhh you're killing me with all of the awesome camera bags! I adore this one as well...saving it for future reference (for the hubby)!

@ lavenderpug: You should check out the other Kelly Moore bags too. They have a number of chic designs, and most are slightly cheaper than Epiphanie's.

@ Katie: LOL. I'm glad to help with the Christmas list.
