I had pretty much decided to get a bubblegum pink first and then I saw the vert thyme and sahara firsts at Shirisse's. I am trying to decide from a practical perspective which color would actually be the most useful. Ok. Let's face it. BG pink is NOT practical. But I love it. Vert thyme had really nice leather. Distressed but matte, which I love. The sahara is a good neutral and in the summer, I wear a lot of bright colors so it might see more use. The SA was trying to convince me to use my white bags more and that her guy can easily clean them so don't worry about getting them dirty. I tend to use white bags for evenings out or special occasions. So, what would you do? I have no other spring/summer bags except the white ones. I sold my sandstone bag, which I used last summer.
