Lusting After Celine Dress, Wedge & Straw Accessories for a Perfect Summer Look

What is summer without a stylish straw tote at the beach? Of course, not all raffia/straw accessories are created equal. Some are cuter and more stylish than others. I don't really like plain straw totes or accessories, I like ones with details or in wild fun colors. I associate summer with color and casual style. So what is more casual and fun than a savvy straw accessory to complete a gal's summer look?1. Kate Spade Ida hula straw tote $295 via Nordstrom --- I really like this for the fun element. This savvy tote will pair well with plain jeans and tee or a cute summer day dress.
2. Anya Hindmarch Halen straw tote $645 via Saks
3. Rafe weave clutch $299 via Zappo
4. Tory Burch straw clutch $325 via Saks
5. Straw tote with flowers
6. Dior straw heels $795 via Eluxury
7. Burberry rope sandals $295 via Nordstrom
8. Prada raffia wedges $595 via Saks
9. Stuart Weitzman espadrilles $375 via Saks
I can imagine wearing this straw hat having afternoon in an English garden. This floral fedora retails for $118 via Nordstrom.

So getting down to business. I am seriously drooling over 09 SS Celine ready to wear collection. Everything is fresh, feminine and SO stylish. Normally I don't go gaga over Celine. This particular blue ombre dress is by far my favorite. Of course, Celine just happens to offer the perfect straw espadrilles. I usually have very good luck with Celine shoes. Somehow the arch fits my arch perfectly, giving me the exact support. which is very important when buying shoes. Anyhoo, this pair of lovely will set a gal back about $400, plus/minus a few bucks after tax. So my lovely readers, what do you think of straw/raffia for summer?


  1. Gorgeous selection! I never spend very much on straw accessories though because I'm a bit heavy handed so they get thrown around a lot and bashed up (my car looks like the inside of a tractor in the summer months). I love the third bag! :) x
