ok..little background...I've ALWAYS just bought one good brownish Coach bag and wore it everyday ALL YEAR. Since joining this forum, I now own 4 new bags (woo hoo!) of different colors and I'm not sure about "the rules". When I lived in the midwest it was the golden rule to put away your white and summer bags after Labor Day or shortly after. Now that I live in Arizona, does that rule still apply? Arizona's seasons are more like summer, spring and then more summer. I'm still wearing shorts, sandals and sunscreen through Novemeber so it just seems odd to put away my white bag and grab the winter suede?? so confused! I recently bought a white pebbled leather hobo with a mahogany brown shoulder strap from an outlet. (love her) Can I wear it into the Fall until our weather breaks? What do the rest of you warm climate girls do? Also, Is Clay and Citron Fall/Winter colors only? I would think they could be year-round depending on your outfit but then again I'm obviously confused and in need of guidance! oh, what about Gardenia? Is that an off-white or cream? If so, is it Fall/ Winter white only? Do you see my utter confusion here? LOL Thanks!!!!
