The Straw Bag Obsession

The straw bag trend has made a splash and we are obsessing over this must-have item. If you haven’t got your hands on one as yet, the time is now, and, darlings, we are here to show you why!

We associate straw bags with the beach, and what more perfect way to pair it than with a straw hat, a flowy white dress, and some sandals. Even if you’re nowhere near a beach, you’ll be convinced you can hear the waves.

And we love that there are so many varieties to choose from. From oversized straw bags to your little-woven tote bag and bamboo clutches, you can have one for every day of the week!

I am the Assistant Fashion Editor at People Magazine but also a fashion designer, blogger, and stylist in my spare time. Working at a magazine on the fashion side is every girl’s dream job; magical, I tell you! I get to meet and work with an endless list of celebrities and not forgetting attending Fashion Week, yay! When I’m not at people I can be found working on my clothing brand, blogging and reading self-help books. Most importantly I believe in love and red lipstick.
