I love getting a brand new bag that's flawless. There's nothing like looking at a perfect bag. I take steps to ensure that the bag is protected - spray the bag a couple of times, never place it on the floor and am ever so careful whenever I carry it. But no matter how much I "baby" and pamper my bags, within the first week of carrying a bag, I almost always notice a new "mark." Example - I bought a Hayden Harnett Havana Hobo in chalk during their 4th of July Big Bang sale. The bag was gorgeous, totally flawless. Admittedly, I was a little worried about carrying a white colored bag, but I made sure I was extremely careful with it. Two days after I started using it, I noticed a small pink-ish color mark near the edge of the flap. I hadn't worn anything red and/or pink, and can't imagine what it's from. But so far, that's all I've noticed. I also bought a Rust colored Baca last month & started carrying it right away. I used the bags every day for about 3 weeks, and I noticed that the backside of the bag was starting to look "dirty". This really bothered me, because I know how careful I am, and I can't imagine that it's any one thing I did. With some bags, I'm anal when it comes to keeping them flawless looking (i.e., my Gryson Olivia, Chloe Paddington, my Balenciagas), but with other bags I'm a little more relaxed and just know that some wear is bound to become apparent after using the bag for a while. This is kind of how I rationalized my HH Havana - I wouldn't normally choose a bag like this in white, but that sale price was too good to pass up. So I look at it like I only paid $125 for this $400 bag - if it gets a little "banged up" I'm not going to fret over it. My Moni was bought with the intention of being a "knock around" bag - so I'm not as careful with that one (and honestly, I think it looks BETTER now than when I first got it!!) But what about you? Do you obsess about keeping your bags flawless looking? What do you do if your bag gets a mark, scuff or the ever dreadful scratch? Do you try to fix it immediately? Do you just leave it, and let the bag age normally? Do you put the bag ways and move on to one of your other ones so you don't have to think about it? Or do you sell and/or give the bag away, and replace it with a new one?
