why a cream tote gets my vote
Since black and white is far too comfortable a marriage to give up on, we must change the dynamic of the relationship. White on the bottom and black above? It can work, if you pay extra attention to fabrics and cut.
One of the easiest switches is from black bags to cream. It’s not as radical as it sounds. Cream does everything black does ie goes with everything and more. A bag that looks utilitarian and s Salvatore Ferragamo lightly banal in black looks luxurious and glamorous (in a Grace Salvatore Ferragamo Kelly on the Riviera way) in cream. Mine is a swiss roll shape from
, with taupe suede lining and gold hardware. It reminds me of every private jet I’ve never been in. It is good leather and seems remarkably dirt resistant, though I wouldn’t trust a Biro near it. Sometimes I clean i Salvatore Ferragamo t with face cream. Sam Cam, who with herexperience should know, told me leather craves nourishment, and moisturiser is the best colour match I’ve found.
A grainy, wipe down saffiano leather would be even more practical I’ve got my eye on’s classic new tote. But I suppose practicality isn’t the foremost reason for carrying a cream bag, so much as a discreet statement. And I hereby declare that not to be an oxymoron.
My J Davidson bag was much admired last summer. It’s even better in winter, when a daily diet of dark clothes can be depressingly oppressive. But it’s really lovely now in spring. Pastel leather bags? They are everywhere right now the i Salvatore Ferragamo ck factor is high. Stick with cream.
