Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and just visited a LV boutique for the first time yesterday. I'm shopping for my first LV and the SA that helped me was great and showed me a number of different bags that I'm interested in. So far I think I like Alma in monogram the best, but am concerned about how the vachetta will patina. I'm wondering if it will get super dark over the years. I love the monogram pattern, but this is a big purchase for me so I am not 100% sure yet as I don't know how dark the vachetta will get. I do like the honey color that I've seen in a lot of the postings on this site. So I need your help! If you could post a photos of your monogram bags with vachetta trims and indicate how old your bag is I would really appreaciate it. Thanks!
