High-end wallets can last ten times as long as cheapies, and you’ll use them every day. But that can be a tough pill to swallow. We found this eye-catching Tory Burch Zip Around Continental wallet ($195) and fell hard for it–until we found a Tory Burch beach tote, beach towel, sunglasses and flip flops all for the price of just the wallet. So we ask:
Which would you rather?
This hot Tory Burch Zip Around Continental wallet ($195)
A full beach outfit including: Tory Burch beach tote, wayfarer sunglasses, Havaiana flip flops, and a Lacoste towel?
A great way to get brand name bags is to shop their beach totes. This two-tone Tory Burch Small Sail tote ($109.38) is not your average beach tote: its chic enough to carry straight from the beach to shopping or happy hour. We couldn’t be happier that plastic flip flops came back in style, because the price and cool design of these Havaianas Slim “Zebra” flip flops ($24) is just right.
Saving on accessories means you can splurge on bigger ticket items like clothing. We love the price tag and classic style of these Delia Jennifer sunglasses ($12.50), (plus, if you’re like me you lose at least 1 pair a season). If your beach destination is anywhere chic (say, the Hamptons or Palm Beach) you will need this chic Lacoste “Crocobayadere” beach towel ($27) to fit in. Or just for fun.
