It definately looks great on Kate and it's a very nice almost true white. I've been looking for a sober white bag for some time now but didn't want to spend a fortune for my first attempt at white (have a 15 month old, + two preteen girls). I do have a paddy in blanc which is actually rather a saturated ivory and really doesn't go with true white. I pretty much gave up on finding a nice true white until I saw this yesterday. What do you think keep or return...is it too "boring"?
