I like your friend! LOL! Has she thought about selling it? If you don't want to keep both, maybe you can sell it? Would she be objected to it? I wouldn't give them away for just that reason!

If she's a rich one and can afford to give her bags away after some use, then by all means take it! :lol:

that is how louis vuittons age. the white leather handles turn to a REALLY dark brown, and only true LV lovers (like me & then some )can tell if the purse is old or not JUST by the white to brown leather. heck i wish my friends would give me their LVs lol. and IF ur going to use it EVERYDAY its bound to turn brown MUCH MUCH faster. ps.. most ppl no matter how old it is, if u have it...says RICH to some ppl.

Lucky you.:amuse: You should post some pictures when you get them. I want to see how dark they are. I hate when they get too dark, too, but there's nothing you can do besides keep them clean. So the patina will never be black.

IMO....If you really feel bad about it..maybe you should be honest with you friend about it before she gives you the bags...

maybe she's just misinformed and doesnt know that the patina is supposed to turn a honey color and that she can even get them replaced...
