ABM + Kelly Moore Bag Details

A Beautiful Mess + Kelly Moore Bag CollaborationHey, friends! First of all, thank you so much for the incredible response to our A Beautiful Mess + Kelly Moore collaboration camera bag. We're so happy you love it! I'm back today to share more details about the bag and a tour of its features and functions. 

Above, you can see the two straps it comes with. We wanted to add a fun option and a practical option. I personally use the stripe strap most often. A Beautiful Mess + Kelly Moore Bag Collaboration Isn't the logo inside pretty? We're so happy with the striped lining, too. Details!

Here's a quick video tour of the features of the bag:

When we designed this bag we had three functions in mind. 

First, of course—a camera bag! Packed for photo shootPacked for photo shootYou can easily fit all of your camera gear (and then some) into these bags. We made sure to make it laptop friendly as well, since in the digital age your laptop pretty much is a piece of photography equipment, right? Packed for everyday lifePacked for everyday lifeOur most common use of the bag is everyday life. We use our bags every day to tote our work around with us. This is a pretty typical assortment of things we carry—laptop, iPad, camera … plus a whole bunch of random stuff. When we travel we often switch to a clutch purse so we can carry this bag and a small suitcase on the plane. Packed for diaper bagPacked for diaper bagAnd last, but not least, a diaper bag! We were SO excited about the possibility of multitasking this bag into a diaper bag. There is a bonus changing pad included (with matching stripes—so cute), and the lens case can also hold water bottles. Sarah has been wearing one of our bags as her diaper bag for the past month, and this is how she packs it. 

Let us know if you have any questions about the bag, and for more details check out the full product description at Kelly Moore's site. xo. Elsie

  • Please make more of this bag! Is there anywhere i can get a hold of this bag??

    • Hi Carrie! We’re coming out with a new style soon. We’ll announce it on the blog as soon as they’re available. 🙂

  • You all did such a wonderful job with this bag! The detailing is so well thought out and I just love the striped lining! The caramel color is my favorite. Your team’s many talents amaze me!

  • This is perfect! I have been juggling diaper bag/purse/camera bag for awhile and I love that I could combine everything into this! Nicely done ladies!

  • Ugh! I live in Canada and the shipping would be 40$! My heart is broken but I’ll have to pass… Well done, though, the bag looks wonderful. I’m in love with the green one.

  • I am about to go to art school and I think this bag will be perfect for everything I will need to carry around!

  • This is beautiful, but I wish it had backpack attachments – I find that that much heavy equipment needs to be carried more evenly when traveling long distances and would definitely buy it if it were a backpack.

    Next time please 😉

  • This is great! Fashionable and functional! Love it!

  • Do you guys know if this bag will fit a 15″ Macbook Pro? I saw on the description that it said it could fit a 13″ laptop, but I was reallyyyyyyy hoping that I could somehow squeeze in those extra 2″ so I can have the excuse to buy this gem. 🙂

  • These have turned out super cute! Congratulations or the fun collaboration! 🙂

  • I loved them the moment I saw them! I really liked the kelly green one and the striped straps (and the striped lining!!!)

  • So seriously in love with this bag! I’m in need of a new bag that can double as a work/camera/school bag and this one seems to be pretty much it! Plus, I love supporting people I love! And maybe it can be a birthday present from David. 😉


  • This is such an amazing bag!! It is a definite must have item!! Thanks for the video tour, it makes me want one even more!!! LOL

  • That´s such a great job you did with that bag. Congratulations!!
    I´m getting one in black, just wondering if it can fit a 17″ Macbook Pro in it, and what kind of man made material is it made? It would be great if you could answer those questions.

  • Seriously love, love, love this bag – the striped interior and the extra strap are fabulous! It’s on the wishlist for Santa this year!

  • I’m in LOVE with that green color. I’ve been looking around for a new camera bag. This might be it!

  • So perfect! I need a camera/diaper/everything bag and nothing has worked so far. This looks like it would, and it’s cute too! I love the extra pockets and that the camera compartment it removable. Also glad it’s faux leather since I don’t buy leather products. I have a hard time spending that much on myself, but this is something I’d use daily and it really would make life easier so I think it’s worth it. Great design, ladies!

  • Wonderful – thanks! Ordered mine in caramel and can’t wait to get my hands on it! 🙂

  • You guys are just so amazing! This bag is beautiful and love how you can use it for many purposes! I was looking for a pretty camera bag and this is just perfect! I just bought one in black and so looking forward to take it on trips with me 🙂 Thank you!!!

  • Beautifuly bags!! It’s fun to see you guys starting to do some videos, you’re too cute Elsie!

  • I don’t like taking my big heavy camera everywhere because the bag I do have just isn’t easy to use! This is a must have, you guys are brilliant. Now to go green or brown…

  • Beautiful bags I only wish they were made with genuine leather. Maybe in the future?

  • I received an error message the first time I posted this, so I apologize if it shows up twice. Anyway, such a great video! I really love all the details of this bag. I wish I could afford one, especially since I’ll be having my own wee babe soon. Will you be hosting any giveaways with them soon by chance?

  • Congrats on your new camera bag collection with Kelly Moore!! For those who are not parents…or not YET parents…I just thought of an unconventional way to utilize the changing pad. It could be a good barrier to keep your gear protected in case you are working in outdoor environments. For example, if you are working on your laptop at a nearby park during a lunch break, the laptop can rest on the changing pad instead of directly on a not-so-clean park table or on your lap…because if it’s on your lap, are you brave enough to eat you lunch at the same time? Not me! 😉 The changing pad can also be the landing spot for your camera and lenses in between picture-taking to keep them protected from possibly getting scratched up. Again, congratulations! I’m so happy for you guys!

  • The striped inside gets me every time. I’m obsessed! Loved the video that accompanied this post!


  • What a great bag! I am so impressed!

  • Have y’all worn the bag across the body? I usually ride my bike to work and am looking for something to wear across my body but definitely wanted your opinion first. Thanks!

  • Hi Cyd,
    Yes, it does fit! Katie and Sarah both have that size.
    XX- Elsie

  • Hi Courtney,
    Yes two of us have that same computer and it fits!

    XO- Elsie

  • I am IN LOVE with that tan one. SO PRETTY. I am definitely bookmarking this for when I need to purchase a new camera bag! Love it!

    xx Sally http://whenyouthinkhappiness.wordpress.com/

  • Literally SO in love with these bags! Super cute too!

    Lulu xx


  • Oh wow. Super cute. I love the striped lining. I’ve needed a new camera bag for over a year now so thus will be in the running.

  • I love my current Kelly Moore bag but I’m needing to upgrade to something bigger. I feel like I need that green one in my life!

  • I read that the dimensions are 15″ for length. Have you tried to comfortably fit a 15″ Macbook in it?


  • i knew there was a reason why i was holding off buying a camera bag 🙂
    seriously, is there anything you ladies can’t do?!

  • Ahh, the bag is totally amazing, I love it! Although – I will have to save some money to be able to buy it, but I guess it’s worth its price.
    What a fantastic idea to integrate i changing mat – as I watched the video and you said: “If you don’t have a baby, save it for late” while you quickly unfolded the mat to show it, my first thought was that the white side of the mat could be used as an improvised reflector in case you need one on the go.
    What do you thing, could that work?

    Great job, as always! 🙂

  • This is the most amazing camra bag I have ever seen. I want one so bad for my mission! So beautiful and crazy functional! Love, love, LOVE!

  • Loving the bags! I’ve been considering a Kelly Moore bag for a while now. As a blogger, I definitely need something that’s travel-friendly and will fit my camera and my laptop securely when flying, etc. I have a 15″ MacBook Pro, any information on whether or not this will fit? Otherwise I travel with my Canon EOS 6D and usually two lenses. Thanks! 🙂

  • Oh my goodness! I seriously can’t wait to get one. They are so pretty and I love that you can organize it and fit so much in. Brilliant! Thanks so much for putting up more details too. I know I had a few questions and it’s such a lovely product.

    Love and Luck,

    Laurali Star

  • Lovely video Elsie, you’re so cute!! And congratulations on your bag girls it’s gorgeous and looks definitely perfect to carry around at all times!! Loving, gonna save money for it! 😉
    Congrats again!

  • You’ve designed the bag so beautifully! Its seriously classy, and I love the striped strap! Such a great product!

  • I love the bag and the functionality of it, but to be honest, I think its a little pricey especially to not be made of real leather 🙂

  • we picked up one of these bags 2.5 years ago as our diaper bag. we loved it and continue to love it. it turned into my briefcase when i returned to work. also we travel a lot and it’s always been our go to carry on managing to handle what the three of us need for the flight. truly lovely bags.

  • Hi Britta,
    Yep, you usually can. They aren’t even as stuffed as these photos as I sometimes have them in real life! 😉

    I’m not sure what you mean about the top handle, but we think the messenger straps are really comfortable!

    xx- Elsie

  • I also totally love Kelly Moore bags, but can you still close the zipper when the bag is stuffed as in the images above?
    I was also wondering why you didn’t include a top handle? I think that would work better…

  • Thanks so much Michelle! We’re so glad you’re enjoying the videos!
    xx- Elsie

  • Hi Jess!
    It’s Pool Party by China Glaze. It’s awesome and crazy!
    xx- Elsie

  • <3 the green bag !
    I also love the nail polish you’re wearing in the video, would you pleeeeease tell what it is and if it’s really that bright in real life ?

  • So many great little details on this bag 🙂 And I love the green color option!

  • In love with the green!!!! I also like how you folks included so many other things with the bag (additional strap, lens holder, etc.) … makes it very versatile.

  • I want this bag in every colour!


  • Congratulations on this awesome project! The creativity of you guys never ceases to amaze me. I just love how versatile this bag is — the amount of thought you all put into it really shows! Love it! 🙂

  • I love the bag! My favorite features are the snaps with buckles because I love the look of buckles but hate the impracticality and also the changing pad. This bag is so versatile, it’s definitely going on my wishlist. Great job ladies!

  • I love the brown color, looks like a great buy! A good camera bag (that can be used for other things, too) is hard to find.

  • Oh they are so great! perfekt to travel and go to work with! I really really want one!

  • Those are beautiful camera bags! I love the green 🙂


  • Kelly bags are always fantastic. This one is probably the best yet. Really terrific bag! So complete! 🙂

  • You’re so cute, Elsie! After years of reading and seeing you in pictures, it’s fun to see you moving and to hear your voice on the videos! Great job, guys!

  • Love, love, love. Also really love the video! And the one ya’ll did on the mix drink. Really cool.

  • So great! At first I was thinking that having such a large bag was something I wouldn’t need/use for my camera, but I love that you pointed out the versatility of it. This would be absolutely perfect for travel! Beautiful job ladies!

  • It looks so good! I love that the inside is customizable.

    A link to the product would be useful. I tried kellymoorebags and kellymoore and got a paints site and a defunct one. :/

  • this bag is simply adorable! so roomy, so pretty, so many great details! I wish I could afford it, but alas. I’ll just have to admire it from afar.

  • Thanks for today’s bonus (WINK WINK)
    Can’t decide between the green and the black one though!

  • I’m really loving all the videos that have been uploaded. I can’t wait to watch more! I’ve needed a new bag for such a long time, this seems like the perfect option right now. You guys always come up with the best stuff.
