Today is my first full day back in Richmond. Though I'm excited to be back home, leaving Charlottesville was tougher than I expected and I am feeling very bittersweet. I had planned today's post to be all about my favorite Cville things, but I think I need a few days to reflect and adjust to the fact that my time at UVA and in Charlottesville is really over. Be on the lookout, however, next week for a "Best of Cville" post and today I will share a great new shopping find!
If you'll recall from last Monday's post, I found the greatest straw clutch/purse at Marshall's for just $16.99! When I went to use it for the first time a few nights ago, I noticed that the tag had a website on it: www.strawstudios.net. I decided to check it out, and was quite impressed!
It can be worn as a purse with the chain strap or the strap can be tucked inside to carry as a clutch.
I personally have been oooohing and aaahing over Kate Spade's straw clutches and other similar ones for years but have never been able to justify splurging on one. When I spotted this cheaper version at Marshall's I figured it was fate.
Well now that I've discovered not only the clutch, but the designer, Straw Studios, I am thrilled!
While perusing their website I found some really cute things (including my clutch which retails for $100!):
My discovery intensified when I Googled Straw Studios. Apparently this designer, which I had never heard of, is a pretty big deal! I found a clutch and handbag from previous seasons that I am dying over!
On sale for $38!
I've already ordered it!
Sofia Shoulder Bag
(It also comes in black, tan, and turquoise)
I am now on the hunt for this..so far I have only been able to find it sold out...
Have you ever heard of Straw Studios? What do you think?
Have a great weekend!
