I am a Southern girl and growing up as one, I was brought up with the knowledge that one doesn't wear white after Labor Day or before Easter. Ever since I saw Jennifer Aniston in Rumor Has It carrying a white purse, I've thought I would like to have one, but I've never really found one I liked until now. But is it truly too late in the season to get/carry one? I saw this http://www.target.com/Merona-Tote-Bag-Ivory/dp/B0017ZOK6W/qid=1219446856/ref=br_1_4/602-6609407-8247801?ie=UTF8&node=12940951&frombrowse=1&rh=tgt%5F2%3AWhite&page=1 at Target recently. In person, this tote size purse is cute and definitely more ivory colored than what is pictured here. My question...Do you wear white or carry white purses after Labor Day? I'm tempted to get and save for the spring, but by then there will probably be one out I like better. My friend says that winter white is okay. Tell me your thoughts!
