ONA Chelsea Camera Bag (Giveaway)

ONA recently wrote to me to ask if I was interested in reviewing and giving away a new camera bag they were coming out with. I did the same for their Brooklyn camera bag (which I still use and love), so I agreed. They sent over their newest, the Chelsea camera bag in cognac leather.

If I’m going out with my big camera in tow, I’m not going to carry a camera bag and a separate purse. With my other bags, I have to pare down a bit, but the Chelsea fits everything I usually carry, plus my camera with a small lens attached and two additional large lenses. I also like the classic, feminine shape and gold hardware.

Ona Chelsea Cognac Leather Camera Bag

Would you like a Chelsea camera bag (in either cognac or black) of your own? ONA will give one away to a lucky Making it Lovely reader. Just leave a comment on this post to enter. Good luck!

One entry per person, open to U.S. and international entrants. The giveaway ends next Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at midnight CST, and a winner will be selected randomly.

p.s. You can keep up with ONA by liking their Facebook page.

* Congratulations to the winner, Molly!
