Dior | Wicker and Raffia Handbag
Wonderful pretty and oh so lovely new glamorous bags are finally here. I went shopping online today like everyday, but it’s not everyday that I spot my future bag. I came across this new Dior Wicker and Raffia Large tote. I realized at that moment this tote is a perfect way to rev up that plain outfit by adding this offbeat sequined and beaded raffia flower tote. The woven wicker is a cool contrast to the bouquet of vintage embroidered raffia flowers.
I simply adore this new floral embroidery pattern, which also happens to be one of the fabulous trends of January 2006 in Lucky Magazine. In the Editor’s pick section they say “nothing is more alluring than lush floral embroidery in the dead of winter”.
I completely adore this vintage style tote, it just tickles me on the inside with excitement. I was down in California about a month ago and I visited the Dior boutique, which is when I first spotted this bag. I didn’t like it at first but now I’m hooked. When I tried it on it felt like it was made for my shoulder. It’s comfortable enough to wear over the shoulder and light enough to wear on the arm. I am very picky when I shop for large totes, I prefer ones that don’t make my arm feel like it’s going to fall off. Surprisingly this picture makes this bag look heavier then it actually is. It’s fairly lightweight but I guess that mostly depends on what you stuff in your bag.
