Just give her to me . I really wanted the Anthracite but I missed out. I have the purple and the biscotti and I don't do anything special. When not using it be sure it place it back in its dust bag. Some ladies use Apple Guard and other lotions to protect the leather. Sometimes the age and wear on a bag gives it its beauty (KWIN). Really depends on what you like.
Sorry, I totally missed this post before. My two girls are pictured below, both are the large. Ana Muse has actually been OUT since I posted this. I just said WTF and loaded her up and off we went on a pretty snowy day and no repercussions. I tend to treat my bags like they're works of art or something. LOL
I sprayed mine with apple guard when I received it and I think it's helped protect against scratches, which metallic leathers are sometimes prone to. I haven't sprayed it again--just the one time, but I have a lot of bags and don't carry any one bag all that often.
