I have been wanting a white handbag for awhile. I have always been wary of white handbags. Either I thought they would look too bright, cheesey/tacky or beauty queenish....(I know it sounds weird) or I worried that it would get really dirty. I guess I have just seen a lot of bad white bags. I saw this one on E-bay for a great price ($300.) and decided to go for it. It was a display at Nordstrom (I think the seller bought it at Last Chance). It looks like it is refurbished. The only problem that there is with the bag is on the back of the buckle. It looks like it got a little messed up and that it was fixed. It is not perfect, but you really cannot see it. I am going to try to keep it really clean.
