I love a stripe and am mad about raffia.   Put the two together and the excitement can barely be contained.  I caught a glimpse of these Paul Smith beauties rushing through an airport last summer and I still regret not splashing out every time I head to the beach.  






The blue Balenciaga is way out of my league - the King of the straw bag Kingdom if you like.  But it's nice to have aspirations...
















My recent finds are these ones from 'mar y sol'.  A total malgamation of the two - and with a pompom thrown in for good measure.  They're the only ones still in production which also slightly helps. And they come in a yellow and a turquoise.
