wow - I love that raffia bag! There was a mombasa bag like that that I have always wanted. But the shiny patent would look great on your vacation too.
I'm no help, both are great choices.

I think the Rafia would be a better choice for a Caribbean trip since it's got more of a "casual" spring vacation vibe. But the Muse is beautiful!

Are you going for casual look or a little more "formal"--that's what I'd use to make up my mind, i.e. Rafia = Casual and Muse = Formal.

Have a great time!

I definitely think the Downtown is a great choice for traveling and will be perfect for the Caribbean. I've never seen the raffia in person, so I'd love to see pictures of yours once it arrives! And have a great time on your trip! :beach:

There is an outlet at Woodbury commons here in NY. It usually has several muses, tributes and downtowns, plus a few of the other bags, but less of them lately. and clothes too! I almost got a cropped ysl rain swingcoat at bergdorf the other day, but came to my senses, as this trend is not worthy of a $2k coat! (I got one at kenneth cole for 60!:smile:

But the outlets always have some fun stuff! They had a canvas downtown there too. Probably gone by now with cruise season well underway!

Was at the outlets today, got an ivory calfskin medium and a large khaki canvas downtown. Together was under $1300! BUT< wanted to tell you they have the exact bag you have pictured above there. The medium is $479 there. The large is like 549. THey have the brown leather accents or the ivory leather accents...If you paid alot more, might be worth a trip up to Woodbury commons to get it for alot less (and get something else too!) Just a fyi...
