Fashion-forward photographer friends, have you heard of THE IT bags?!?
I featured it last year on my gift guide and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. No one got it for me for Christmas (whomp whomp) but the owner, Nicole, was kind enough to send me a sample for review. I am pleased to say that it lives up to my high expectations. It’s also a Canadian brand, based in Toronto! Love me some local businesses ;)
I used to carry around my DSLR with me everywhere when I first got it.
But then I stopped because it just looked ridiculous in my bags (made them too bulky) or I would have to bring the standard camera case… and let’s face it, those are hideous. Then I started to just wrap it around a scarf and bring it with me in my purse (I still sometimes do this lol) but I feel like it’s not really safe, you know?
I am always on the look out for structured, stylish bags that my baby can live in and this is my absolute favourite at the moment. Let me tell you why!
The “Bossi” bag is a classic! It looks good with any and every outfit. It comes with 2 handles so you can wear it in a few different ways. It can be dressed up or dressed down… super easy to style, as you can see here!
The inside is nice and soft, with custom dividers for your camera, lenses and/or flash. But you can also remove it if you want to take it out sans camera.
If black isn’t your colour, there is also the Gravel Bossi. For a little bling, the Bossi and Gravel Bossi both have studded versions. The Lula is something new (and available for pre-order on the site HERE) and comes in great colours too! I feel like I need that pink Lula for spring time.
Anyway, I love this bag so much that I asked THEIT if I could do a giveaway for BEAUTY AND A BITE readers and the owner, Nicole, said yes! Whoop whoop! I know there’s a bunch of you that are really into photography and would just love this (my friends IRL included, ahem). This giveaway is for you. The only mandatory step in the Rafflecopter is to leave a comment telling me what type of camera you own, what you love about it and your favourite photo you’ve ever taken.
As usual, I will go first! I have a Canon 30D and an Olympus EPM-2. I love the quality from both cameras, the control of my DSLR and the compact-ness of my Olympus (I know that sounds ridiculous, but it’s true). My favourite photo I’ve ever taken…. wow that’s a hard one. I have so many! But I would have to say… a lot are self-timed photos of me and Kris. Sometimes you get to capture that moment on a self-timed photo where everything is actually perfect – this makes me very happy!
Now it’s your turn! Good luck, friends!
** If you have a minute, tell me about your favourite camera bags! As much as I love letting you guys know about the cool stuff I come across, I love hearing it from you guys too. I love discovering new brands from real people, so please don’t be shy to share!**
Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. I was sent the Bossi bag for a review and I’m happily sharing with you because I love it! I love it so much that I want to give one to a reader! :)
