A leather purse I bought at JCPenney has dye wearing off of strap that rest on my shoulder, and on top of purse around the zipper. It shows red now in those areas.
Other than that my purse looks brand new inside and out. It began changing color about 5 to 6 weeks after I purchased it. I never returned it because of the length of time I had it. I've bought cheaper purses in the past and the dye hasn't ever faded on them.
Other Liz Claiborne purses I have purchased hasn't changed either. I guess I won't ever purchase a Liz purse again as this one I carry now looks silly.
