Epiphanie Black Lola Camera Handbag Review


Epiphanie Black Lola Camera Bag Hybrid Purse Review

Last month I came across the Epiphanie Lola Camera Handbags. I fell in love with the Black Lola and made it mine. Epiphanie Bags are created by Maile Wilson. She launched her company in 2009 and they’ve been a huge success. I wish I had come across them sooner!

Epiphanie Lola Bag Interior
Main compartment 14″ (length) x 8″ (width) x 5″ (height)

6 adjustable velcro panels (4 short, 2 long)

Inside my epiphanie lola camera bag

Inside my bag, you can see all the panels. I make a nest for my camera in the center of the bag, then reinforce it with all the extra panels.

Things I typically keep in my camera bag:
kindle fire
Canon Rebel t3i
tokidoki 24 karat makeup bag (for those of you who loved my tokidoki 24 karat makeup bags I found someone selling them on Amazon!)
dakine wallet

The bottom of the Epiphanie Lola bag is sturdy! The purse stands upright on its own. I love that it has a sort of slouchy style to it. It appears smaller than it is, yet holds way more than I anticipated it would. I love that! I’ve gotten several compliments on it already too, which always makes me happy.

As I mentioned in the video, there is really only one negative to the purse. The zipper is easy to open, but it’s a bit difficult to close. Oh, and if I was wishing, I would add a separate slide media pocket for my kindle fire. But other than that, it exceeded my every expectation for the bag.

I’m very glad that I purchased this bag and I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a stylish camera bag that can also double as a handbag or diaper bag. I hope they come out with more colors! I would love to see a bright teal blue bag in my future, or maybe even a tokidoki collaboration!

  3. I love my bag from them! I wish mine was bigger and that the zipper closed! I can’t carry anything in mine besides a camera and 2 lenses. I’d love to fit an Ipad in there, along with a wallet..

  4. What a cute bag, I love it! I could carry a tonf of mani supplies in it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. OK, the bag is very nice, but I must admit that since I have two big Bernese Mtn Dog girls, I was distracted by Phaedra! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I have this exact bag except mine has hot pink lining. I have used it almost everyday for over a year and a half and it still looks brand new. They wear exceptionally well. I don’t have any problems with my zipper so maybe yours just needs to be broken in a bit. My favorite part of Epiphanie bags is you can rearrange the panels to suit your needs. I carry my Rebel, another lens, plus my wallet and atleast 10 lip glosses perfectly. Enjoy your new bag!

    1. HollieHaradon I love this bag! I wish mine had hot pink lining. I’ll have to figure out how to break it in. It’s just a pain to zip it shut, but it opens just fine.
