Cool enough to take you to the pool, beach and beyond, but are they worth the price?
Last year I became obsessed with owning a wicker bag. This Prada bag to be exact. As one does when they become obsessed with something I told everyone that would listen how badly I wanted it. I showed it to my roommate, babbled on and on to my mom that I was about to spend entirely too much money on a bag, and stalked the bag both in stores and online. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, life happened and I realized that I had no business purchasing a big ticket item last spring. By the time the fall rolled around I was financially ready to make a bag purchase, but the obsession with my dream wicker bag had fallen aside. Fast forward to a year later and not only is the wicker bag trend back big time, but so is the exact bag that I wanted last spring. I can't help but give wicker another thought, especially with so many new wicker bags popping up! It seems that every one of our favorite designers has a wicker bag available for sale right now. I know what a lot of you are thinking—hard no!—but I am wondering if some of you are feeling the trend like I am. I'm eyeing the Fendi below, but what about you guys? Would you buy into the wicker trend?
