Handbag help!

For my birthday last month I decided to treat myself to a new handbag with some of the money I received and after much deliberation which drove the bf insane, this is the one I went for form Aldo:


I always tend to go for a light coloured handbag for the summer months - I don't feel quite right with a dark coloured bag when it's summer - although that wouldn't make much difference at the moment with the rubbish weather we've been having!

I love this bag-it's big enough to hold all of my *necessary* items that I feel the need to carry around with me (including a tape measure-you just never know)! But I need some help pelase! This bag is described on the website as being a synthetic material - the only way I can describe it is being a very soft leather type material and because of this I get awful dye transfer where the bag has rubbed against my jeans.


Looks rubbish right! Well, a friend at work very kindly gave me a suede rubber which she had no use for to try out and I have used this a few times and it does make a hell of a difference as you can see below but there is still some dye transfer on the bag - it doesn't get rid of it all! 


Have you ever had this problem before? Any suggestions on anything I can use to get rid of it?

Granted, I should of used some kind of protection spray when I first bought the bag, but I didn't (I have learnt my lesson) but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  1. I would send it back, no matter what material it is it shouldn't end up in that condition!!

  2. The bag is so pretty but that's such a shame about the dye transfer. This happened to a friend of mine with a bag from river island but I don't think she ever managed to get the dye out =(
