Hey ladies... okay, so I have a beautiful medium classic in black caviar leather with silver hardware. She isn't used daily by any means, at most once a week... and I am super anal about my bags (I even bring the dustbag to restaurants, theaters etc. OCD style haha). Anyway, I just noticed that by the button closure on the left side there are four small areas where the leather has turned white... as if the black has faded!! I should mention that it isn't visible when the bag is closed, however, it still bothers me. I have also noticed the same thing on the handles of my mom's black Medallion tote, but to a greater extent (the tote she uses quite frequently). So my question is, has this happened to any of your black caviar leather bags (or for that matter any caviar bags)? I haven't noticed this on any other bags I have (brown caviar, light beige, pink, coral, etc.) and I'm really sad. It was purchased several years ago at NM, so I don't know what their policy/price is for sending it out for repairs, etc. ahh. Any advice or help would be appreciated... thanks in advance ladies!!
