The 'It' Bag is normally crowned to a flavour of the month designer bag, appearing in nearly every street style image, stalking you online making you want them more and more. I often question the sustainability of such an expensive designer item being something of pure trend. As much as I have loved some of the passed 'it' bags, I couldn't bring myself to splurge after it has been given such a title.
Recently though the 'it' bag has been something different for me, but something that I have realised I have a real weakness for. That is the straw/wooden bag. More suited to those of us in the warmer months but for those not, now is the time to get prepared.
My love affair started with a vintage market bag that my grandma was trying to get rid of under her house nearly two years ago. Since I have added (don't judge me) A large drawstring straw beach bag, Woven tote, wooden shoulder basket bag & a wooden geometric clutch. Yes, I know, no one needs that many straw style bags but I swear they are all for different situations! Reading that last sentence back, I feel like an addict. Even writing this post, I got the itch for more.
So if you share my latest addiction.. I have listed my favourites online at the moment. But you must also check out your local antique centre (or your nanna) because you can find some gems. ps. A lot of my favourites & bags already purchased were from Shopbop & they are currently offering a Spend & Save deal with the code GOBIG16 at checkout. So your bank account can thank me later.
