The Near Future: White Now!

Candy Pratts Price at Vogue has already decided what are the most stimulating bags, shoes, and jewels for Spring 2010. I'm actually crazy enough to go through all 79 photos from her Spring 2010 Accessory Report (so that you don't have to). Just so you know, out of 79 picks, only four were bags. One is a purple + logo backpack/duffel thing and I won't be writing one more word about that. One is very lovely, but we'll save it for next week. Two of the four, interestingly were white. I know I'm asking a lot--it's a freezing cold Friday half way to Christmas, but I'd like you to consider a couple of white hot bags. Come on, nothing beats holiday shopping like a little spring window-shopping!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that Gucci's white leather shoulder bag with metal embroidery is going to cause a frenzy. It's just rocker-chic enough to garner some celeb interest and yet it's got a classic shape that's wearable. I also think that the white tones down the hardcore vibe just enough to win over some ladies who lunch.

Also earning major stripes for making it on this coveted list is Dolce & Gabbana's Miss Sicily bag. I'm a sucker for it's streamlined classic shape that has 'lady-like' written all over it. And don't you love the two little coin purses updating it, as if to say this is no grandma bag. In the immortal words of SJP, me likey!

    Mary Jo, you picked two bags I know will be a hit come spring. That Gucci bag has "celebrity status symbol" written all over it. It's actually a design I can get excited about, and it's from Gucci! Who would have thought that possible?!?!
