Hi everyone! Its my first time posting here (waves). Ive gotten lots of info from the purse forum and everyone seems nice and helpful. Thanks!! Anyway, Id never liked the LV mono look, but loved Marc Jacobs and his lovely pockets. Then I fell head over heels for the MJ-designed Manhattan PM last year . I was FINALLY able to convince hubby that I needed it . We went to Las Vegas for our anniversary, and walked all over the strip looking for one made in France (my personal preference - for my first LV, I just wanted one from France even though several SAs tried to convince me that all the Manhattans were made in USA :blink: ). We were able to track one down at the Forum Shops. Now I take it out of the box and look at it a lot, but have been so afraid to use it because I really like the new vachetta look. Help!! I looked through the forum and saw that several people mentioned Shining Monkey Fabric Spray. But has anyone used it THEMSELVES? I ordered it and should be getting it soon, but Id love to hear first-hand personal experience before I actually use it. Also, does it just waterproof it or also stain-proof it? Do you use something else, OR think its better to let the natural patina-ing process take place? Sorry about all the questions. Thanks in advance!!!
