I'm so excited to tell you about my Kelly Moore Camera bag. Not only because I'm completely in love with it, but because you now have the chance to win one too! I had been seeing a few options of stylish camera bags pop up around blog land but hadn't found one that I just had to have, until I searched around a bit and found a new designer option, Kelly Moore Bags! Not only do they have beautiful bags for women, but they have a great bag for men too!
I must admit, I was kind of already in love with my bag from the moment I opened the box. When you open a box to find this, how could your heart not flutter a bit.....
All packaged up in it's own custom storage dust cover bag!
Libby Bag in Caramel. I chose the caramel color because I think it's timeless and will look even better with wear. I decided on the Libby because of these two images-
I love that you can carry a serious amount of gear, as shown above. As an aspiring photographer I'm learning and know that I will eventually want to carry around more gear than I currently do so this bag has room for me to grow.
But as you can see below, it's great for carrying tons of other stuff too! So at the moment when I want to have my camera with me all the time so I can practice, practice, practice.... I can still carry around my day to day stuff and not have to carry two bags.
B-Hobo in Canary!
Isn't she pretty? And still with fully adjustable interior and all kinds of options.
I've been putting my Libby bag to good use for a while now. I've accidentally nicked it with my wedding ring and left some dings, but as I suspected when I ordered the Caramel color, the nicks start to blend in and add character to the bag. Don't get me wrong, it's not like it's delicate and nicks every time I bump it, this bag is seriously durable, but it happens.
Kelly Moore is a photographer herself so she knows what is expected from a photography bag. There are awesome little videos on most of the bags in the website so that you can get a better feel for what each bag looks like and size proportion. I found the video extremely helpful as I had almost ordered a different bag until I saw the Libby in the video and realized I had barely looked at it on the site!
You can also check out the Kelly Moore Bag Blog for in depth details and more photos.
I can't say enough about the quality of this bag. The zippers are metal and heavy duty. The velcro inside (as I mentioned) is really really strong, to the point that it takes a bit to get used to adjusting the inserts, but you can feel the quality. This bag is an investment and you want to feel like it's going to last you and not wear out as velcro can do. I'm confident my bag will last me MANY years to come.
I know what your thinking. Taylor! You said GIVEAWAY!
I was so excited when Kelly Moore offered the chance for you very lucky MJ&G readers to WIN your very own Kelly Moore Bag!
Here are the details-
Mandatory entry- Visit Kelly Moore Bags and tell me which bag you simply must have. *I do need to mention here that the Libby bag I have is a $250 value. This giveaway is for a bag up to a $200 value. If you simply must have the Libby, you will need to pay the difference (totally worth it!) but pretty much any other bag on the site is less than the $200 cap.
Second entry- Follow Kelly Moore Clark on Twitter. Leave a separate comment that you did
Third (and final) chance. Because good things come in threes. Pass the word on about this giveaway. What ever way you prefer, announce it on Facebook, twitter about it, stumble upon it. Do what ever you do to share that there is an amazing giveaway going on, then leave me a comment saying what you did.
Giveaway ends April 30th at midnight central time. I will draw a winner at random. Good Luck!!!!
