With weekends of beach time ahead of me, I needed a bag to show off at the shore. So I headed to Canyon Beachwear, where I found a tan "Starfish" tote by Jellyfish. This offset my bright-blue bikini perfectly. Made from straw, the bag was super-light, though the wooden starfish clasp was sturdy. And the tote lay flat, so it could easily be stashed in a suitcase. 1136 Third Ave., nr. 66th St.; 917-432-0732.
