I love, love, love LV.. But I hate, hate, hate it when the vachetta turns into patina... My friend said, it's just normal, all LV turns into patina, and it's one way of knowing that your LV is authentic. And she even told me that some people wants their vachettas to turn to patinas very fast... But I feel the complete opposite of that! I feel when the vachetta turns into patina, I feel that my purse looks sooo old and dirty! And I read in the FAQ section that if you don't want your vachettas to turn quickly into patina, avoid sunlight contact. Oh no! I just went out with my hudson last saturday when we went out to find a new place and it was very, very sunny! That's why I noticed there's a little color change in my hudson's straps. Next time I'd better be careful... Anybody in here feels the same way as I do?
