Bright and Fun Wallets
I’ve been using a black Donna Karan wallet for the longest time. It’s professional looking and matches with virtually any purse and outfit I use. But right on time with springs colorful selection, I decided to put away the mature black, and go for something that’s a little more fun. What I found was a pleated leather coin purse that doubles as either a wristlet or a wallet. It’s washed with a pale aqua color, and I love that the coin purse effect reminds me of being a little girl (I was shy, but I loved to dress up and be theatrical). Yet, it is definitely polished.
Being so pleased with my purchase, I want to help you guys find some choices for new wallets of your own. Loosen your grip on your old one. You deserve something new and fun.
While I’m feeling more encouraged to try things with a dash of fresh yellow, I’m still a little iffy on it. But the Barneys New York Classic Leather Ladies Wallet for $225.00 is wildly appealing to me, even so. The shock of the color is balanced nicely with the very traditional design of the wallet. Uptown ladies, meet your go-to wallet for Spring/Summer ’08.
Metallic and snakeskin (embossing)? Sign me up now! This Jill Stuart ‘Tribeca Metallic Cassidy’ Clutch Wallet for $175.00 from Nordstrom is fantastic, in my humble, yet undeniably fashionable, opinion. It has fifteen card slots, and do you really need anymore than that? This is completely glamorous in a way that almost has me start singing that horrible Fergie song.
To invoke a more relaxed vibe, I don’t think you can go better than with the Crosshatch Stem Wallet for $88.00 from Anthropologie. Whether green is your thing, or you like orange, you’ll find the wallet in a corresponding hue you’ll love. It reminds me of both leaves, and a dragonfly.
In honor of coin purses being so cute, I must include the Embroidered Coin Purse for $18.00, also from Anthropologie. The hard part isn’t deciding whether or not to buy it. It’s deciding which of the four colors you like best. I love the green, but the purple is so pretty…
