Very recently I got my first EVER white bag. I think I always had my Dad’s voice in my head saying, “it’s impractical, it’s not a good investment, it’s going to be a grayish-brown before you know it!” I guess you could say that I had a bad case of whitebagaphobia. And after reading up on this fear online, I realized that I wasn’t the only one!

A few months ago I got an amazing white bag from Cuyana (yes, the same one as Garance has) and it changed everything. We have been inseparable ever since. The right white bag is totally practical, a great investment and stays white (sorry Dad)!

So to prove my point, we scoured the market to find the sometimes impractically sized but always perfectly cool bags to carry this spring. These are a few of our favorites we’ll be lusting after even if they do become not-so-pristine come fall…
