I was wondering how patent leather holds up in extreme heat? What if I leave my purse in the car when it's 110 degrees outside? Is that something to worry about? Or in general, if I carry it in the sun at 100 degrees?

and how about cold, when it freezes and I leave it in the car, does that matter? Does the patent crack or melt in those circumstances?

I think there's been a thread about this already but it's late and I'm not sure....

Im thinking about a patent bag again now. It might be worth a chance. It has scared me to own one all patent,but hasnt scared me as much as suede.

I was wondering the same thing just the other day! I was thinking about my Patent Maggie and I wasn't wondering so much about the car as just where I store them because we've had a heatwave here in Victoria and our bedroom is to the front of the house where it's always sunny and always hot! And my hubby said "she's going to melt!" I hope this isn't true :sad:

Maybe someone here can volunteer to throw their patent leather wristlet in the freezer for awhile then take it and leave it in the car out in direct sunlight for a few days...
(I won't volunteer, luv my patent magenta wristlet too much for subjecting it to a battery of tests)

I'm sure its not good for ANYTHING to be subjected to these conditions. Why would you treat your bag this way?
