Clutching at Straws

Here’s the perfect summer bag for a summer picnic: vintage woven straw embroidered with orange blossoms on front and top. All the more perfect because it looks just like an Asian lunchbox! At 20cm x 20cm (8" x 8"), it’s also large enough to take on a Sunday stroll through a flea market, and to be filled with more vintage goodies.

Too adorable and inexpensive to resist, I recently purchased the bag for $20 from Etsy store Junky Monkey (who specialise in vintage clothing patterns). The seller listed it as a 70s item, although to me it is more reminiscent of the 1960s for some reason – how cute would it look with a vintage silk cheongsam of that era?

Here’s to delicious sunny days … bon appétit!
