I posted in another thread that my city GH was faded on the corners. I would have normally returned/exchanged but since it was a gift from DF. I mentioned to him about the fading & he was like "you said that the B bags have distressed leather, so I knew you'd like it". I guess he actually listens when I babble on about fashion & I didn't want him to feel like he picked out something wrong or I didn't like it. So I applied Lubriderm lotion w/ a q-tip & the bag looks great!!!! I will post pics when I'm finished doing both sides!
