I see a lot of fear about owning white bags, but have you ever actually ruined one? I own several white bags and don't understand the problem and the fear over owning one, at least not a leather one. I really wish people would not criticize white unless you have actually tried one. Maybe it's the fact that all of my white bags are Coach, which is very durable. I have a Legacy vintage leather Mandy, a Legacy vintage leather tote, a pebbled leather Hamptons carryall, and a white patent Ergo all in white and they all look like they've never been used. Maybe it's cuz I am careful with my bags, but nothing overly cautious - I just don't draw on them with ballpoint pen or drag them on the floor. I take them to work and have 2 kids and go to the grocery store with them so they definately get used. I have to be much more careful with my Kooba which is a grey color than I do with my white bags.
