  • The Summer Bag: Buy, But Don't Invest

    This is Elise. 

    By all means, get yourself some BASKET BAGS for this summer. They're already everywhere, and they're completely irresistable... at least to me. But do you really think we'll all be lugging it around come fall? Probably not. So please don't spend more than like $50 on them. Here are three options I bought for $4, $12, and $15! $31 and I'm good for the summer. Here's the secret: Etsy. Search for "wicker", "straw", or "basket" bags and adjust filters to show only vintage and under $25 and you will have pages and pages of great options to look at. 

    I'm all about investment pieces and spending more for a better product, but this is not that product. It's straw people, not leather. 

    Now let's take a look:

    The Wicker Bag: $15

    The Straw Bag: $4

    The Basket Bag: $12 (And my personal fav)

    Dress: vintage
