I love a stripe and am mad about raffia. Put the two together and the excitement can barely be contained. I caught a glimpse of these Paul Smith beauties rushing through an airport last summer and I still regret not splashing out every time I head to the beach.
The blue Balenciaga is way out of my league - the King of the straw bag Kingdom if you like. But it's nice to have aspirations...
My recent finds are these ones from 'mar y sol'. A total malgamation of the two - and with a pompom thrown in for good measure. They're the only ones still in production which also slightly helps. And they come in a yellow and a turquoise.
