    Default Spring/Summer Style: White Handbags

    Warmer weather is just around the corner! I can't wait to break out my sunglasses and flip flops. But as the spring/summer season approaches, there is something else I should be thinking about. Yep, that age-old dilemma... do I get a white handbag for the season? This is a tough decision. On the one hand, a white handbag is the epitome of spring and summer style. They are light and airy and they go with just about anything. On the other hand, a white handbag is extremely high maintenance. They get dirty easily, making them something most people think twice about before making such an investment. Hence the abundance of "throw away" white handbags that are inexpensive enough so you don't feel guilty about throwing it out at the end of the season. Talk about difficult choices! So here is what I am going to do. I am going to propose a compromise. Spend a little more, but make sure that white handbag is made of a stain resistant material. Saffiano leather, for example, is scratch and stain resistant, making it the ideal candidate for a white handbag.

    One of my favorite bag trends I can't wait to get all my white bags out of storage.. come to think of it I need to get a couple of them cleaned.


    I love all the bags you posted! The Rebecca Minkoff & Michael Kors are just classic.. I love the size, perfect to carry work (or school) stuff. And the Elizabeth & James is perfect for day-to-night.. I just love the drawstring bucket bag trend

    I like that Michael Kors style in white, although I'm too chicken to buy white.

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the leather treated with to make it stain resistant?

    ^^^ The leather is heated, pressed, and stamped with the cross-hatch texture. The texture itself is what makes it scratch resistant. I believe the leather is then treated with wax, which makes it easier to wipe scuff marks and some stains off.
