It's been a while since the concept of a white bag crossed my mind. The first, when Cousin C showed off her hard-earned Miu Miu Matelassé. Then Galpal M finally succumbed to the allure of the Valextra Boston bag.
When I chanced upon Kate Spade's 'Head in the Sand Melinda' tote at 30% off online (US$298, about S$388), a chorus of angels erupted. I'd previously posted about the delicious blueberry version but a white version? I had doubts. How was the leather? Would it hold its shape? Could I carry it off? After a whistle-stop tour of the Raffles City boutique, it was the bone-white spoke to me like a burning bush.
Just to put things in perspective, the same style is discounted in Singapore but, buyer beware, the sale price in Singapore (S$588) is pretty much the US full retail price! Are you still here? See you at the checkout!
