actually people say, that men are hunters and women are gatherers. Well, sometimes I ask myself if I am a real women, because everything that belongs to fashion for me sometimes is more a race where I hunt for pieces than a comfortable trip to find something.
I am always on the search for extraordinary pieces, places and styles. I could search for hours at the online stores and the shops in different cities, I compare for hours and I have around thousands of notes on my laptop, where to get what. I am always restless, never satisfied and sometimes too much perfectionist. This is me, a slob and a perfectionist at the same time.
When I was a child I could spent hours sitting in my room working on creative projects. My motto has always been: “nothing or everything”. And therefore my parents had to carry me out of my room to intercept my work and to give me some food and beverage. Yes, I know, it sounds weird. But this is me, a slob and a perfectionist at the same time.
For today I picked out a summer must-have, that is definitely trend no.1 this summer and I like it very much. The reason why I like it that much is very simple. It is one piece and it enhances the whole look completely. I am always taken back how great events often come from little causes. And this year’s little cause is named “straw bag”. You can take the most simple straw bag and create an amazing accessories. And this is really great.
At my case I took a vintage straw bag and put on my newest Hermès silk scarf. Et voilà, one of the most exciting accessories is made. My vintage straw bag I will combine with off-shoulder dresses and other romantic clothing.
The most beautiful straw bags
Today straw bags are the must-have and it-piece by themselves. Once they were boring and some kind of “last year”, today they are luxurious and glamorous. There are so many possibilities to follow the straw-bag-trend. On the one hand you can buy an expensive designer piece and on the other hand you can take a vintage piece and enhance it with scarfs, bows and flowers. It is very simple and doesn’t depend on a special budget or on a label. And that I like about this trend. I am not fixated on a special brand, I buy what I like. Of course, CHANEL is one of my very favorite labels, but I feel free to follow what I want and not to follow a group behavior.
How to combine a straw bag
Don’t be shy, combine your bag with amazing dresses, skirts and accessories like straw hats, golden jewelry and beautiful espadrilles. Big earrings, many bracelets, bows, ruffles and big sunglasses are a straw bag’s best friends.
Where to wear the straw bag
Yesterday we wore the straw bag only at the beach, but today it is an it-piece, a fashion must-have and therefore we can wear the straw bag for many different occasions. It only depends on how you match it and what your look is like. For example I recommend to break rules again: take a designer straw clutch and wear it for a summer rooftop cocktail party. Take a designer straw bag for your next shopping trip at the designer stores. I swear, the shop assistants will recognize your bag in a positive way, because you don’t wear the boring bags they know from everyone else.
