Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: This vintage light-weight basket woven bag with flap closure begs to be toted around. The optional shoulder strap makes the purse easy to carry during a day of running errands as well as a viable, vibrant night-out clutch when the strap's hidden inside the pouch.
Style It: Simplicity in summer is delightful, but it doesn't have to look poorly planned. Style the woven purse with minimalism in mind and add a pair of flared silk chiffon shorts from Elizabeth & James, a T by Alexander Wang twill button-down in pale blue, and raspberry suede kitten-heeled sandals from J. Crew.
