Super light colored handbags, much like suede shoes and white pants, are a brave choice. The chance of dirt, dust and tragic red wine incidents are awfully high. But, if you are brave (or inordinately graceful) a light colored handbag can really stand out.

This Antique White (aka, pale grey) Rebecca Minkoff Love Letter MAB Satchel is worth the effort, and potential light-purse heartache. Rebecca Minkoff bags, particularly the MAB line, are fabulous. I'll admit... I have three, all MABs. They are roomy, stylish and super well-organized thanks to smart pockets and compartments. Plus, they securely zip all the way closed, which is nice for commuting in the city.
This Love Letter MAB features a whipstich detail, which sets it apart from the rest of the MAB line, as well as chic pale goldtone hardware that really flatters the lighter colored leather. Also, I'm enamoured with the cutesy canary-printed fabric lining -- and kind of bummed that note of my MABs have canaries on the inside! Of course, the clincher is that this particular MAB is on sale for 40% off retail price.
