What to Buy Spring 2007: Summer Straw Bags

One of this season’s hottest accessories is the straw bag.
Here’s some basic rules to follow when looking for straw bag this summer:

1. Shop in your-mom’s-grandma’s-older friend’s closet. Most likely they have a fabulous straw bag lurking somewhere in the deep recesses of their closet. If you’re a mom-grandma-older friend, then shop in your own closet.

2. Head to the Thrift Store.  Thrift stores always have a great selection of straw bags, mostly from other people’s mom-grandma-older friends.

3. Never pay more than $25. Why blow your paycheck on a purse you’re only going to carry for 3 months?

4. Pair it with the nautical look. Straw bags work VERY well with the nautical look.  Pair it with a stripped shirt and a pair of wide leg pants in crisp white.

Don’t have a closet to raid? Don’t like thrift stores? Then check out these great summer straw bags..
