My Gorgeous New JoTotes Bag


JoTotes Camera Bags

When I was given my DSLR for Christmas a couple of years ago, I knew nothing about photography.  I had a point and shoot digital that I’d used before then and it was clear from the pictures that it wasn’t a quality camera.

So when I got my DSLR, I was so excited to get started using it.  I’ve taken thousands of photos in the last couple of years and am slowly learning more about my camera and all of the cool lenses and products I want to use with it. I’ve done a lot of browsing online for camera bags too.  I found some a couple of years ago that I thought were cute, but now realize that they’re just too small. I can barely fit my camera in them with one extra lens. There’s no room for anything else.

So when I started looking for a new camera bag that will actually hold everything I need it to, I came across JoTotes.  Look at these gorgeous JoTotes bags:


So when I was given the chance to review one of the amazing JoTotes bags, I was thrilled!

I chose this beautiful little thing, the Rose bag in Teal:



I love it!  It’s just as pretty in person as it looks in the photos.  It’s a vintage style handbag that’s cute enough to carry everyday as a purse, but has extra padding and lots of adjustable sections so it’s perfect for my camera gear too.



And it even comes in a cute bag. I love great packaging. I think it says a lot about a company and how much they love their products. Check out the fun shipping box and decorative bag my JoTotes Bag came in:


Here’s a closer look at the details of my JoTotes Rose Bag:

The Rose Bag is made of a top quality faux leather and has so many pretty details in its design. From the rosette and pleats along the front panel to the smart look of black and white houndstooth in the interior lining, no details were overlooked in making this bag.



It’s the perfect all-in-one bag for women. Pretty and feminine, but still large enough to use as a day bag and camera bag.  There is 1/2″ foam sewn into the lining of all four sides and the bottom to protect your camera. And with all of the adjustable pads included, I can configure the Rose bag however I want.



Here I have my DSLR, 2 additional lenses, several cords and my battery charger.  There is still plenty of room left in case I need to add more equipment or if I want to add my wallet, keys and cell phone.



There are also several pockets for additional storage, including a large zippered pocket on the back and a smaller zippered pocket inside.  

The Rose bag comes with both shoulder straps and a removable and adjustable cross-body strap, which I totally love. I have been using the shoulder straps during the day when I’m out shopping or at an event, but once I start snapping pictures, I find it a lot easier to grab whatever I need out of the bag if I’m wearing the cross-strap.

Overall, I have to say I really love the Rose bag. It’s not an overwhelming size, but is roomy enough for everything I need and it is absolutely adorable! I’ll definitely be buying more JoTotes bags in the future.

  37. sara m ford says:

    I am a bag lady all kinds I really love the inside of this bag 

  38. Kasee Johnson says:

    I love that you have the option of using shoulder straps or a cross-body strap. I carry a messenger bag, and while I love wearing it across my body, it’s such a pain to adjust the strap on the go so that I can just sling it over my shoulder. I don’t have a big camera, but I carry my digital point-and-shoot AND my video camera AND all the tiny gear that 4 kids need – baby wipes, cleaning cloths, sunscreen, chap stick. Fun stuff. JoTotes look like there’s room for it all! Thanks for sharing.

  39. Joretta Foster says:

    love this bag. don’t really look like a camera bag

  40. Deborah Hogue says:

    These bags are cute and colorful. I like that you can match the bags to your wardrobe by buying different colors or styles

  41. natasha brodsky says:

    That looks like the perfect size for me with the kids.  I could get everything I needed in there and NOT need another bag.

  42. tammy dodson says:

    My daughter would love this to carry to school

  43. Alexandra Roach says:

    This would be a great gift for my friend who is a photographer

  44. Stephanie Gonzalez says:

    Those bags are beautiful, I would love one!
