I bought a Gold Luxe Bowler in May and was sooo careful with the bag, wouldn't let it touch the floor or let people rub against in the subway or mall (yes, call me paranoid ) Still, within a month's time a lot of the gold was rubbing off on the bottom and CORNERS (especially the parts near the CHAIN!!!) I got so worried and scare that it would get much worse that I'd just stoped using the bag all together! It's been sleeping in my closet ever since June. I remembered also seeing the "wear" on several other metalic displays in the boutique. Has this happen to anyone else's metallic Luxe? What did you do with yours? Can the boutique repair it?
