Wary to fork over serious cash for a super-seasonal raffia bag? So was I once I took note of Miu Miu‘s nearly $1,500 woven satchel.
Instead, consider Marc by Marc Jacobs braided raffia wallet. Indigo blue is an unexpected shade for the most summery of materials and offers a more formal finish. With purse-worthy hardware and a chain strap so long you can even wear it as a cross-body bag, it reads like a bag. A great piece for traveling – it forces you to pack light and keeps your cards and money organized. Plus, no one can swipe your wallet if it’s strapped across you! Remove the chain and you have a wallet or clutch. At $230, this handy three-in-one accoutrement is a pretty good deal. On Ssense for $230.
Pair with: Clare Vivier‘s hologram metallic shopper tote is just the oversized piece to toss your wallet/clutch/bag into when you’ve got places to go and gear to carry. And at a true Frugal Snob price, you’ll be filling it with new purchases. Clare Vivier Shopping Tote, $189.
