In a vain attempt to appear like a fashionable young professional, I made the mistake of buying an ugly tote bag in white leather. It's real leather, I paid an embarrassing amount for it, and it's too late to give it away/return it. I've decided to embrace my choice, and add a little adventure to my life by trying to dye it a nice chocolate brown. I need advice because I don't want to throw away more cash making more mistakes.
This is the purse (description is accurate):
I want to make it match my favorite purchase (this shiny, chocolate brown color): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Coach-Julia-Chocolate-Patent-leather-Zippy-Wallet-w-detachable-strap-46726-NWT-/350782217836
Any advice (what to use; leave it to a professional, etc) will be greatly appreciated.
