Ok, I'm so guilty of this it isn't funny. I fret over getting a light color bag for fear of stains. I hate when the piping on dark bags fade from normal wear and tear or the corners of lighter bags get a little dark. In the past I've cleaned one or two beautifully colored purses with Coach cleaner until I faded the color myself.... I want to enjoy my purses and wear them, while taking good care of them, not pitch a hissy over every little mark over regular wear. Pens happen, lotion happens...I have a beautiful electric blue satin hobo that I've never worn cause I'm scared. I was going through my collection and I touched it after moisturizing my hands and there was a little stain and I almost fainted...sigh. I'm going to be careful, but not obsess and think of it as character added to my bag these little things.
