So I have seen 2 I like. One is a kipling and the other is a charlie lapson. Both only seen on the web. Are white handbags ok or am I likely to be laffed at?

i bought a lovely white jaeger one when i was pregnant and baby brain ruled. It also came in a patent blue and red, which would have been much more practical buying. I hardly ever use it... but I do love it! Main problem is, when I wear it with jeans, colour can transfer onto the bag (i bought some special creams for it, but is a hassle). Also I don't like putting it on the dirty floor in cafes, etc.

I personally don't like white bags, don't do white shoes either, but that is just me.

only if patent and hence wipe-clean
and then only if cool and slouchy not prissy

cream / stone / ligth tan much better

I bought a lovely Liz Claiborne one. Only I found out just how quickly it gets dirty and how your clothes mark the bag really quickly.

This is okish

MrsBadger Sun 23-Aug-09 21:40:10

that was the kind of thing I was envisaging

MrsBadger Sun 23-Aug-09 21:43:43

Fimbo Sun 23-Aug-09 21:57:36

Don't like the white at all.

MrsBadger Sun 23-Aug-09 22:07:56
