As I’ve started paying more attention to home decor + design, I can’t help but notice how much inspiration fashion draws from home design. That’s what initially drew me to my Palmgrens Rattan Bag. It’s the best, but it reminded me of a caned chair I have in my apartment. They’ve been making this exact style since the fifties and a few of you have DM’d me photos of grandparents’ bags which is so cool!
I bought mine directly from Palmgrens’ website and was a little shocked by how quickly it shipped. It was coming from Stockholm so I figured it would take a while… I was pleasantly surprised when it came within a few days. While I do think it was worth every penny, it’s also expensive so I’d recommend this or this clutch (on sale!) as an alternative! Also on the wicker/rattan front: these slides. Admittedly I don’t wear a lot of flat sandals (my feet actually feel better with a low to mid heel vs. totally flat) but I made an exception for these as they match my favorite bag!!! L-O-V-E!

And just for fun here’s a shot of me being REAL awkward.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wicker bag before – but I do love the way you styled it, especially when paired with your slippers. It’s a nice alternative to the straw/basket bags I see everywhere nowadays! 🙂

thank you briana!!! urban outfitters has so many good rattan furniture pieces!
Love the dress( our favorite color! ) , so pretty on you! When I convert the Swedish Krona amount 2,876 =320.87 US that’s less than the other bag featured at 355.00. Am I missing something? Anyway, love it and am very tempted ( this has been going on for awhile….)
Oh you may be right! I can’t remember how much mine cost, I thought it was more around $400!
Whenever I caning now I think of you (in the best way); I just love everything about this look (and especially that colour on you).
Hope Havana was THE BEST!
aw thanks so much B! xx

Hahahaha same. Sometimes the awkward ones are my favorites.
Both, your sandals and the bag are perfect accessories for the Summer outfits and your dress suits you beautifully! 🙂
