Mar Y Sol gives raffia a retro makeover with this Billie clutch.
There's a fun 80s vibe around this ruffled purse. I've never seen raffia looking quite this feminine, or this pink. There are more sedate natural toned and espresso colored options, but if you're going to go girly why not commit? The blend of raffia and cotton helps the ruffles fall softly around the purse. I can just imagine Molly Ringwald carrying this cheap and cheerful accessory in Pretty in Pink.
The frills have suckered me in, but the tasseled zipper pull probably takes things a step too far. It overcomplicates a design that was already pretty fussy. You could probably give it the snip if it really bothers you, but I don't think it's such a deal-breaker. It also makes accessing the main compartment a bit easier.
If you were expecting a lot inside, you'll be disappointed. There's only a single slip inside, and it's too small to be much use. There's no shoulder strap either, so we're left clutching the Billie by hand.
For $79 it's hard to get too critical though. While it doesn't have the polish of a lot of evening purses, it's much more versatile. Pair it with jeans or a flowing maxi-dress and wait for the compliments to roll in!
