    Default Should I spend $$$ on a white bag?

    I found a really pretty Anna Corinna Lady Duffle bag in white for $295. It's very pretty but I'm trying to think if it's even worth spending over $100 on a white bag...who knows what dirt it'll pick up over time! Maybe if it was ivory - that would be a LITTLE different - but this is straight up white.

    What are your thoughts?

    hmm....i think it's worth it....

    for me, i feel like i need a nice white bag too.....just won't carry it around when i know i'm doing something that is quite messy.

    my sister uses a white leather bag by michael kors as an everyday bag. she's been using it even when she goes to disneyland or a small boat going to an island.....and it still looks really clean and nice! i think it also depends on the leather (the shinier ones are easier to keep clean i think...)

    well...good luck on your decision making!!!!!! :D

    I think you should! I have a white Chloe Paddington from awhile ago and it still looks really clean. I think the color doesn't matter as much as the quality of the bag... so if the bag is made from high-quality materials, then it shouldn't get dirty too easily. But make sure to clean it sometimes, too There's just something so crisp and lovely about white bags, so I say go for it!

    If it's good quality, I'd say YES!

    Well I think I'm going to pass... it's an Anna Corinna and I heard that the leather quality on those bags are so-so for the price. that makes me nervous.

    I have heard some bad reviews on the cheap quality of the Foley + Corrina leathers. I did hear the the Anna Corrina is a little better as far as the leather. HTH!
    Maybe you could give it a good saturation of Appleguard??

    What are your thoughts?
    It must be a Texas thing, but I bought a Chloe bag last summer and wore it all summer long. If you like it and can carry it into the next year, I would buy it. Mind you, mine was the creme Chloe. I like creme over white any day.

    I wouldn't - I know people love white bags but I think it will be a mess - Spring/Summer bags are nicer in beiges and light greys -

    I would say it's worth it. I like white bags, and I usually break out my one white bag each spring. Sure, they get dirty much more easily than colored bags, but if you take it to a cleaner's or even a special handbag cleaning shop, it's totally fine. I like to take mine in to get it cleaned at the end of the summer, so if you love the bag, totally get it.

    I would say it is worth it too but it has to be a good one. Otherwise they look tacky and cheap!!
