I just wondered if anyone else has ever bought two identical bags in a style that they knew they loved. Especially a limited edition or discontinued style. I personally LOVE the white MC Sologne bag, and wear it all the time. I'm pretty good about keeping my bags dry, so I usually don't have to worry about rain water marks. Perspiration, on the other hand, is much harder to control. If I am wearing a cross-body shoulder bag and walking a long distance, I inevitably get some sweat stains on the vachetta. But when people walk long distances, they perspire. Nothing anyone can do about that. Even though LV bags are so well-made that I'm sure they will last for several years, I figure that they are going to wear out eventually (I have no idea when). For this reason, I recently purchased a "like new" white MC Sologne to hold onto for whenever my original Sologne starts to look worn out. Plus, I figure it's best to buy it now, before prices go up even more. Am I the only person on here who has ever purchased two identical bags? Or do others do so, for the reasons I have listed above? I'd love to hear any feedback or experiences. Part of me wishes I'd purchased an entirely new style of handbag, but I do like to stay with what's tried and true. The Sologne is my perfect bag, so it only made sense to buy a back-up. Does anyone know if LV bags last "forever"? Or do they eventually wear out after several years? (I know it varies from person to person and depends on how careful people are with their bags. I try to treat my bags very well, so I'm guessing that they will last for several years. They probably start to look worn out at some point, though, right? Thanks for any info or experiences!
