@VickiBatman : What's in Your Closet? #handbagMonday

~Handbag Monday~

Recently, I attended a shower for a bride and wore a salmon-colored linen dress and carried this:

The box-shaped bag is made of straw with a gold clasp, nice vinyl interior, and embellished with raffia fruit and leaves. I remember it was one of my first purchases on eBay. The rattan is plastic coated which makes it nice for surprise tropical showers. (The brownish tone of the photo doesn't do it justice. Actually is more blonde. Alas, my photo skills are lacking.) On the bottom are leather straps covering the gold hinges, and gold-toned feet. The label on the inside pocket says "Simon, Made in Hong Kong, Styled by Mister Ernest."

It's fairly light-weight and hold all my stuff perfectly.

News: I've been on eBay and ETSY and have found a few new additions to my handbag family.  I'll be featuring them on Handbag Monday too. And if you want to be on Handbag Monday, shoot me an email: vlmbatman@hotmail.com

Happy Handbag Shopping!

I love that bag. So unique.


Isn't it cute? I've seen variations on it on ebay too. Thanks for stopping, Cara.

very cute! Certainly a one of a kind!


Hi, Melissa! Evidently, the wrapped wicker or rattan was popular. I like the size too.
