You're gonna thank me!!! ***PICS***

  1. OK- so I've been waiting for Shining Monkey for over 10 days in the mail (yeah WTF?!) And I have been ITCHING TERRIBLY to use my beautiful Speedy Azur 30 and it's been sitting in my house with the plastic still on and I've been sooooo annoyed at not using this bag!!!!!!!!:cursing:

    SO - THIS MORNING---- with a "carpe momento" attitude I grabbed this leather protector I bought from Famous Footwear a couple weeks ago for my white shoes.

    I went outside----- tested the color change! ok- continued to spray the sides.......STILL NO COLOR CHANGE!!! and then the ULTIMATE test---- sprayed the heat stamp leaf....... NO CHANGE AT ALL IN BRAND NEW VACHETTA....................and I guess the biggest worry I had out of all that was the tab attached to the bag itself----I've read about Apple Garde changing the leather color----- absoluetly no CHANGE!!! :sweatdrop:

    I know some of you are anti-spray but I'm from an area where there is a lot of fog and drizzle and I'm not about to let this bag go to the dumps with endless waterstains!

    So- here it is, pictures of my Azur Speedy 30 and the spray that is my new best friend. Oh and my bag with a sag before I sprayed it (I love it with a sag's the way it was meant to be right!) and one more just to see that there was no color difference.

    I ended up spraying the bag 3 times over and it recommends waiting to use it for at least 2 hours.

    It's so funny too, when I bought the spray from Famous Footwear the salesperson looked at my Manhattan and said "it can be used on ANY type of leather" and I raised an eyebrow- thought to myself- "but probably NOT on LV"

    I was so wrong.






  2. beeeeeeeeeeeautiful! i just sprayed my batignolles the wilson's leather spray (not aerosol) last night!!!

  4. G*O*R*G*E*O*U*S*! :flowers:
  5. YOU HAVE GUTS GIRL!!! Thanks for the tip!! I love your speedy.
  6. Thanks for share :flowers:
  7. gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your experience. I actually use Wilson leather protector to protect my new vachetta and it works well also.
  8. I've also used my Uggs leather protectant on mine. I ran out of the Wilson and I really wanted to use my bag. So far it's worked wonders.
  9. Thank you so much for the info and for testing!!!! This is so helpful....:idea:

  10. Yep- I tried it on my mini pochette and works great!

  11. Thank you!---- I was BEYOND WORRIED but I'm glad I just did it--- I get to use my bag finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I ordered a regular Damier and I'm glad I don't have to go through this again!
  12. So, you used the leather protector on the canvas part too? Sorry, I never used that stuff on my purses. But definitely considering it when I get myself an azur piece.
  13. yay! glad it worked out for you and now you can wear your bags w/o fear!
  14. I just used it on all the vachetta- piping, handles, tabs. I wiped the canvas with a damp papertowel after.

    This stuff dried instantly- didn't soak up anywhere and I think it's because the mist was medium fine and sprayed wide when it came out of the can (does that make sense?)

    I :heart: it!
