I have to admit...I'm afraid of my LV bag (Alma in Monogram Canvas). :shame: I know that at some point, a spot will appear on it and it will never be the same. And yes, I know that bags are meant to be used, but...well...it just looks so beautiful right now. I want the leather to get darker, but I just don't want a speck of anything to get on it.:s For those of you who have experienced this with your first LV or any new LV, how long did it take you to get over it? I once read an interview with Sarah Jessica Parker in which she said that Matthew had given her an Hermes Birkin and for a while, she was afraid of it because it was so beautiful.
