You may have noticed in my recent Instagram photo I’m carrying a basket instead of a traditional purse. Some of you may question my choices, but a straw or whicker basket is the perfect spring and summer trend. Jane Birkin was known to carry a basket and they were inseparable. Her reasoning was she had too much stuff and couldn’t fit it all in a regular purse. Using a basket instead of purse can make you feel like red riding hood or according to my boyfriends father, like you’re about to go on a picnic, but that’s the fun of it.
Designers love this trend and have been incorporating straw and whicker details into their purses, Kate Spade, Michel Kors, and Tory Burch are a couple that come to mind. So have a little fun this spring and buy yourself a basket, you’ll look like a French ‘it’ girl.
