Honestly I can't tell! Maybe it just looks like shadow. I have read the try baby wipes... gently dab, don't rub.

personally, i'd leave that completely alone. it's so minimal that you'll only risk making it worse by trying stuff. it's hardly even noticeable and looks like stitch marks. at least now you'll know to be more careful w/dark colors!

I got color transfer out of my beige Clair with soap and water, but I don't know if you will be brave enough to try it. I basically wet the back of my bag with color transfer area with running water, put some soap on it and rubbed gentily with cloth. After I washed the leather under running warm water. I pat dried it with a towel and then let it air dry. After few hours I put some leather conditioner on the area. I have done this several times and every time it worked like a charm.

Exact same thing happened to the same bag after one use! Exact same bag and color. I wore it with a black dress and really regretted it.

OMG!!! The same thing happened to my turquoise caviar mini today. I wore it with a black sweater and I think the dye got on it... [emoji24][emoji24][emoji24] I've tried leather cleaner and was unable to get it off. I think I will just leave it alone before making it worse. Thankfully it's not very noticeable, but STILL!!!

Wow! You are brave indeed. I got scared just reading your post. I'm glad it works like a charm every time

Cadillac is the best!!! And to all who have light colored bags, before you wear them, be sure to spray it every few months with Vectra. No more getting color transfer or dirt on the leather :smile:
