It is here, it is here!!! ‘It‘ being summer. Well, kind of here, not totally 100% here but it is trying to arrive. With warm weather and vacation season knocking at our doors, many are working on their beach bodies and prepping their summer wardrobe. For an accessory lover, that should include a raffia tote.
While raffia totes are clearly only suited for May, June, July, and August, that is still a third of the year and that means it will be a great wardrobe addition. If you do not want to splurge on a designer option like the Balenciaga Raffia Tote, we found a look for less with the Rebecca Minkoff Endless Love Straw Tote.
Rebecca Minkoff followed in Balenciaga’s footsteps by introducing her Love Straw Tote. I saw this bag at the Sample Sale last week (in fact Michelle Trachtenberg picked one up at the sale). The design is incredibly similar to what Balenciaga is offering at a fraction of the price.
Ultimately, it is up to you. First off would you buy a raffia bag and if so, which do you prefer?
