starry backpack

  This is my favourite backpack...ever.  Inexplicably ASOS are selling it as a man's backpack, so if you want it you have to go to the Man's bit of ASOS, can't figure that ASOS decision, but in no position to argue.  Was £20, now down to £16.  Made of  cotton canvas with pleather-tagged zip around closure on main compartment and the front storage pocket, a grab top handle, adjustable shoulder straps, and measures  H 43cm, W 36cm and D 16cm.

perfect camera bag

  I was looking for a bag for when I take my Canon EOS M with extra lens and spare batteries out.  BUT I wanted it to be a handbag because camera bags are generally too canvas, too ugly, too utilitarian looking.  Also I didn't want to be having to carry two bags about, my camera bag would have a separate camera storage and be gorgeous with handbag bits for my handbag stuff.  Then I saw this bag, with its' two main zipped compartments, camera stuff in the back, handbag stuff in the front, no need for anything else.  Thank you Topshop, this is perfect.
