The Bag I Covet

I have long been disparaging the fact that I have to carry two heavy bags every time I travel — my laptop bag and my camera bag. I love both — my red Lola Epiphanie bag and my black (with red trim – see how coordinated I am!?) Lodis Audrey laptop bag.

No doubt about it, there are both gorgeous bags, and both have their place, but together it is a lot to manage, that’s all I’m saying.

For some time I have been coveting the Clover Ephiphanie bag because it holds a laptop AND camera AND the various and sundry accouterments a lady must carry when she travels. However, I recently discovered Kelly Moore.

Ladies, there’s a new bag in town!

I am currently in love with the orange Libby Bag.

Isn’t that a beaut!?

No, I haven’t seen it in the flesh, but I hope to remedy that . . . long about Christmas time!

You must click over to her site and watch her video because that bag holds the kitchen sink. She packs it with her 15-inch laptop, her camera and several lenses and all the cords and such. Then she includes a plastic bag of TSA-approved toiletries and even a change of clothes and underwear. And of course her wallet and cell phone.

You can even fit an iPad in the back pocket!

Not that I have an iPad . . . another situation that will hopefully be remedied at Christmastime. *HINT*

Needless to say, with all that inside, it probably weighs as much as a small elephant, but I’ll take that any day over juggling multiple bags. Plus, I have compared dimensions, and I like how the Libby isn’t QUITE as wide as the Clover. And the styling is right up my alley. I like how it’s just a bit on the tough side.

While the orange is the one that jumped out at me, it also comes in gray, sapphire, lavender, black and a scrumptious caramel color. How’s a girl to decide!?

What do you think about the Kelly Moore bags? Have you seen them in person? Are they as gorgeous in life as they are on the computer screen? Do tell.

  1. my friend has this bag. it’s ridiculously heavy – even before you put a camera/laptop in it.

  2. It’s gorgeous! I hope you find what you’re looking for. 🙂


  4. I actually own the bag in a the carmel color. I absolutely love it! Although I wouldn’t use it for everyday as it is much too large but it is prefect for travel. Have you seen the other bags on her site? I am really loving the 2 sues or the b-hobo. It’s way to hard to decide and like you I must also wait until Christmas. booo!
