    Default Coach Straw Floral Extra Large Tote



    For quite some time now, Iíve realized that Iíve been craving and wanting to add a straw handbag to my collection. Before I continue, I would like to mention that ďstrawĒ is nowhere near my favorite handbag material; instead, I find it rather pleasing for the spring and summer seasons, only.

    The perfect accessory to pair with pretty summer dresses and to take to the beach is a straw bag. Its light in weight, cute, and may also be somewhat durable. I believe a straw bag must be simple in design, with an exception to shiny hardware, leather linings, and maybe some adornments that wonít scream ďtackyĒ, are ok.

    Take a look at this bag by Coach. Itís called the Straw Floral Extra Large Tote. I canít say I like it, but I do not hate it either. Overall, itís a pretty cute straw bag but a bit too girly for my taste. Plus in my opinion, the $698 price tag is nowhere near convincing for a Coach straw bag. Maybe some of you bagistas might disagree with me when I say that somehow, I feel like you mustnít splurge on a handbag made out of such fragile material. Now if we talk canvas or leather, then thatís a totally different story!

    Looks like something an old lady would carry around at the Farmer's Market... along with her floppy sun hat...

    Seems like a high price tag for a non-durable, very seasonal bag.

    this bag is just ok, imo. and for $698, i would get something else. way too expensive not only for Coach but for a straw purse.

    i agree with Viva on how straw is good for S/S only. in my personal opinion, i would never spend more than $100 for straw bag though...

    Yeah, I'm not a fan. But I sort of like straw bags...depends on where you're going to use it.

    Cute for $50, insane for more than that.
    What is Coach thinking about raising prices like this and are people really buying?

    okay I bought an awesome straw tote in France... It was baby blue and very unique but the damn thing fell apart... Very fragile and I will never get another straw bag again unless its under $50
