The reconception of raffia bags in the last decade has given rise to bags that are no longer confined to the beach. While I still associate woven bags with warm weather, many of them now have a refined touch that elevates them to more formal occasions.
The Ulla Johnson Paloma Ruched Convertible Shoulder Bag with leather accents and a gathered silhouette is one such bag: not only will it hold all of your essentials on a weekend errand run, it will also fit in just as well at a champagne brunch with your best-dressed friends. This (small but mighty) bag holds a surprising amount for its size (8.5″H x 9.5″L x 3″D), but doesn’t look oversized on even smaller frames.
