browsing the kate spade website for spring inspiration i fell in love with this bag. the point breeze coal is so pretty for spring and summer but with gasoline running $4 a gallon, it's out of my budget, not that i ever go anywhere...but still.
i am not a crafty type person at all, but i figured i could maybe find something more budget friendly. this is what i came up with. this straw bag with non-leather handles (yay) was $19.99 at marshalls. the bag itself is nicely made and it's lined. i'm not normally a fan of cheapo purses and shoes, but i am very hard on summer purses for some reason. maybe it's the all the sitting outside at the cafe sipping lattes. anyway, i went next door to joanne fabric and spent $2 on a yard of black grosgrain ribbon, tied it on and there you have it.
my new spring/summer bag...
