  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. I really don't know why, but I just do! It doesn't strike me as a color that I'd carry when wearing casual attire. Granted, I have seen plenty of ivory and white slouchy hobos, but it doesn't feel right.
    I'm in the market for an ivory bag, and all I can picture is a very structured, ladylike bag... possibly a frame bag, or something from Anya Hindmarch. Am I nuts?
     
  2. No, I think ivory would be great to wear on date or for a formal occasion. I think everyone goes for black most of the time.
     
  3. I'm with you. I have a hard time thinking of ivory or white as a casual "everyday" bag. I've even tried to get into it as an everyday bag (with an inexpensive slouchy shopper), but I never feel right. I think ivory would be gorgeous on an Anya or other structured bag.
     
  4. I wear a very casual dark white Chanel on a daily basis, depends on the style of the bag IMO, not the color necessarily.
    Here's mine, worn w/ jeans in one photo and gym clothes in the other:

  5. Gosh. That's funny. I have a Kooba Marcelle in ivory I can't seem to part with. The irony is that I'm so afraid to wear it, I don't see the point. I hold it up to my outfits and it really is beautiful. Because it's an ivory / winter white, it just works so well. In any all black outfit, it's sumptious. My debate was just whether I should sell it, or hang onto it "just in case." :confused1:

  6. novice bag person here. I need help figuring my own bag purchase. I like the way this bag looks. If the cost of the bag is affordable for you, then I would keep it. It would be nice to know if that style and color of bag will be in season for Spring 2007 and Fall 2007.
     
  7. I love the carker and the ebury by anya hindmarch. both gorgeous in the ivory!
