Congrats! I personally wear light colored bags in the winter. In fact, I am currently carrying a pink/fuchsia fendilicious woc. It acts as a great contrast to the dark grays, blacks, blues and browns I wear. Matter of fact, I have carried a white Burberry buckleigh in the middle of winter - white bans be damned :P

I would definitely follow randr's advice on pre treating your bag so as to prevent color transfer.

We spend too much money not to enjoy our pieces when we d@mn well please, I say :smile: enjoy your newest bag in good health.

It is a beautiful bag and you could carry that all year long. It is season-less in my opinion! Imagine it paired with an all winter white outfit (gorgeous!). Enjoy your bag!

Thank you all! I am waiting for the pre treating to arrive in the mail that randr recommended and then I will take her out for a spin. :P

be careful to note that the lexol product (non-darkening) you purchased is more to make it smooshy, not necessarily guard against water spots or spaghetti sauce, e.g. that may require something else. if the smoosh factor is your first concern, then by all means condition it. once you are satisfied with that, and you think you might need the water repellent sprays (if you live in a rainy city, e.g.) then apply that as a second layer afterwards...spaced a week or more apart.

Got it! Lexol for smoosh, then protect. :smile: What water repellent spray do you use?

i dont have as light colored bag as yours so i dont really protect against water, not do i do it for my darker colored bags. i'd suggest searching through the entire tpf for water repellent or scotch guard in the other designer forums..or maybe, someone here can suggest.
