Beige has gotten a bad rap over the years. Like vanilla (which I happen to prefer over chocolate), the understated neutral has become a synonym for "boring" or "unremarkable." With the aid of Akris's refined carryall, I'm taking the color back and redefining the hue to be the definition of chic. This tote will go as fabulously with a summer day as a cone of ice creamin vanilla, naturally.
