Straw basket bags are hotter than ever this summer, but they're not just for the beach. From oversized totes to tiny woven baskets to playful pom-pom clutches, the It accessory is ideal for Sunday brunch with your besties, date night at the movies, or just hitting the city streets. Though the gorgeous straw styles from Cult Gaia and Clare V. may not suit everyone's budget, you can still score the cool-girl cary-all for a steal. Here are 14 under-$50 straw bags we'll be carrying all season.
From street style stars to the pages of our favorite fashion magazines, we can't seem to escape the trend that is micro purses. In the time we took trying to figure out how to fit anything other than our cell phone in these tiny little bags to toying with our emotions towards hanging up our favorite totes, designer brands have crafted up the perfect little (emphasis on the little) bags of our dreams and we're finally ready to hop on the mini bag bandwagon. Are you?

Picture your perfect pair of 5-inch heels and how easily it is to walk around all day in them, running from errand to errand. Yeah, we can't imagine that either.

Don’t get it twisted, we love our high-heeled leg lengtheners, but strutting from place to place at a snail’s pace isn’t practical for a girl on the go. Which is why we’re tipping our hats—and lowering our heels—to high fashion’s renewed sense of comfort-meets-style.
