While online shopping I noticed that I had about 3 choices.
1. A cheap, not so attractive, but functional black bag. BORING!
2. A super cute, stylish, trendy and colorful bag from one of these fun sites
3. Or, a timeless, classy bag with lots of pockets. This is obviously the choice I am going with.
Although I love some of the bags above, and they may be cooler, I tend to shop for items like this on the "safe side." If I am going to invest a lot of money into something I want it to last me a long time.
I fell in love with this one, below. Although it is not as trendy, pretty, a bright fun color, etc, I think it is one that will grow with me as a photographer with lots of pockets and never go out of style.
I continued to shop around for something that could be a backup. I have found this one but the colors seem a little off (it comes in khaki, black, and green) and it's a canvas bag vs leather, but it's a heck of a lot cheaper, so it may be a good choice.
