One Response to The Inevitable White Bag

  1. Alix, the Michael Kors Marina Leather Large Drawstring Shoulder Tote is a definite winner for me! Roomy, versatile and just a great looking bag. And you’re so right about white getting dirty. I have a fabulous off-white B. Makqwsky bag that I purchased last year and fell in love with it. Hmmm…unfortunately, now it’s more off-white than I care for it to be due to smudges, ink pen smears and general daily use. Guess it’s time to go shopping for a bag!
