    Default Designer Straw Beach Baskets for all Budgets

    Designer Straw Beach Baskets for all Budgets

    Here are a few Straw Beach Baskets that all share similar characteristics but differ greatly in price:

    > Merona Large Straw Tote - On the super cheap-cheap side of the spectrum, it’s this Merona Target brand shoulder bag. This bag is made of woven corn husk that have been dried then dyed which gives it a yellowish tint. The bag also features synthetic-leather (plastic) trim and a tab flap over closure. Measurements: 20” length x 12” width x 6” depth.

    I wouldn’t call this bag cheap-looking but rather not quality. I honestly doubt it will last you the whole summer, but hey that’s what $20 will get you.

    > Michael Kors 'Santorini Large' Shopper - Priced in the middle ground, it’s the Santorini tagged in the $300 range. This roomy beach-chic tote features leather straps, gold hardware trim and topped off with the signature Michael Kors flap over buckle. Measurements: 14" width x 10" height x 6" depth.

    In my opinion, out of the bags above this bag comes in at the best deal. It’s a struggle to find a good beach bag, and I wouldn’t want a bag that will fall apart before the summer is over (talking to you Merona). But maybe that’s just me.. I’m a firm believer in quality over quantity.

    > Limited Edition Coach Jasmine Tote - And finally on the higher-priced side of the spectrum, it’s the Coach basket, that retails for a whopping (for Coach) $998. The bag is dressed in hand-woven straw and trimmed with bright orange leather and snakeskin trim and features the Fragrance fabric lining. Measurements: 24” length x 13.5” height x 10.5” width. There are other bags in the new Coach Straw line that retail for slightly less.

    I bought a MK straw bag on ebay. I am not sure if its authentic. The closer is inside bag.
    Its the large tote with braided leather handles,gold trim. Probably last years. Do you know if such bag was made?

    hum... the closure should be on the outside of the bag, if this is the one you are talking about.... do you happen to have a picture available? or the ebay listing number?
