So, like a lot of you ladies know I was lusting after a Botkier Sophie for a long time. I finally got her (and was SO EXCITED) but did realize that she scratches SO easily. I have not taken her out of the house yet nor have I treated her with Appleguarde or anything of the like. I am scared that I'll use her a few times and she'll just look REALLY beat up. Does anyone have any advice? The color is bordeaux, do you think that makes a difference? Have you noticed your bag doesn't look as new after just a few uses? Did you treat the bag with conditioner and rain repellant? Did you regret your purchase? Thanks for anything you can give me on this one, girls. I don't want to bring back the perfect bag but if it's that fragile, I don't want to risk it.
