Coach Straw Floral Extra Large Tote
For quite some time now, Iâ€™ve realized that Iâ€™ve been craving and wanting to add a straw handbag to my collection. Before I continue, I would like to mention that â€œstrawâ€? is nowhere near my favorite handbag material; instead, I find it rather pleasing for the spring and summer seasons, only.
The perfect accessory to pair with pretty summer dresses and to take to the beach is a straw bag. Its light in weight, cute, and may also be somewhat durable. I believe a straw bag must be simple in design, with an exception to shiny hardware, leather linings, and maybe some adornments that wonâ€™t scream â€œtackyâ€?, are ok.
Take a look at this bag by Coach. Itâ€™s called the Straw Floral Extra Large Tote. I canâ€™t say I like it, but I do not hate it either. Overall, itâ€™s a pretty cute straw bag but a bit too girly for my taste. Plus in my opinion, the $698 price tag is nowhere near convincing for a Coach straw bag. Maybe some of you bagistas might disagree with me when I say that somehow, I feel like you mustnâ€™t splurge on a handbag made out of such fragile material. Now if we talk canvas or leather, then thatâ€™s a totally different story!
