I like looking after my bags but I don't want to be scared to use it and feel like I need to mother it. I adore the Sunset medium in smooth leather, but I've had other bags with similar looking leathers (judging by pictures) and found that it was very easily scratched by my nails or if someone knocked against me. I'm looking for a shoulder/crossbody bag that will mostly be used during usual day to day activity (not often enough for errand running or going to work, but equally not something that's only saved for an event/special occassion - think days out, shopping trips etc) but looks pretty enough to be day-to-night suitable and versatile. The other option for me would be to go for the medium Sunset satchel in the black grained leather, as texture wise this looks like it can withstand a lot more and stay looking perfect though use. I much prefer the chain strap though as I think it gives a gorgeous overall finish, and it wouldn't be quite as fitting if I were to use it in an evening as it does look slightly more casual. I'm not really considering one of the Sunset bags with the grained leather with the half chain/half leather strap that don't have the visible front pocket, as I just think they lack a charm the other Sunset bags have! They're beautiful, but I don't love it enough to spend £1500 on it! Does anyone have any experience with the durability of the Sunset smooth leather bags that can provide advice? I want something where the finish will still look beautiful, even after day-to-day wear!
