I've been looking for a straw purse for a week or so. I have a straw beach bag but I wanted to change up my looks with my maxi dresses while on vacation (soon) with my mom who recently graduated and KT.
I look for inspiration in a lot of places. Imagine the happy dance I did when I received my first F.R.E.E. issue of Lucky magazine and the straw totes were featured. Funny eh because I saw the article after making my purchase. See what I mean when I say GOD is always near & at work.
This story gets better. For the first time I visited a store called Syms. Have you heard of it? It reminds me of TJ Maxx. Totally overpriced but I perused the place since I had a free moment. I picked up a few things, tried them on but nothing gave me that you've found something great goosebump feeling. Weird eh?? I kept eyeing the straw hats and bags. The hats were $50. Huh? o.O I was gifted one that I think is just as cute from the dollar store at a mere cost of $3.
I decided to check out accessories and found two cute pairs of dangly earrings. The pair in the middle are from Bakers purchased a month or so ago. I thought of them after seeing the fantastic ones rocked by Evelyn on Basketball Wives Season 3. Aren't they kau-te? I'm being random and all over the place again. LOL!
I'd heard good things about Syms and so desperately wanted it to be true. It was ok. I eont be rushing back to shop. I did find a straw tote. It isn't flimsy nor extremely firm so I'll definitely need to go light with the contents. This won't be a problem since the vacation plan is to do nothing for a week while surrounded by nature trails, fishing lakes, tennis, 3 pools and other amenities including things for KT. I'm looking forward to putting away the leather handbags and enjoying a relaxed summer look with this tote.
Are you a fan of the straw bag/tote?
P. S. My apologies for the way pictures are only at the top of the post. I'm blogging from my phone and I can't manipulate the inclusion.of photos. Free app...don't judge me. ;)
