Hi ladies, i requested for some votes awhile back when i could not decide between alumino and black bow bag and nw, i finally received my much awaited bag! thank you ladies for your all your replies , i am posting my pic just to share here it is! i got car grease onto it about 5 minutes into using the bag thankfully, i was able to rub it out rather easily but i sure got into panic mode after that.... checking out the bag once every few minutes just wondering how you ladies keep up the look of the bag? are there anything that i can apply onto the leather to protect it or to make it last longer? i am sucha slob so light coloured bags normally don't last that long for me but i really want this bow bag to stick around with me for as long as possible! tia!
