How much $$ should I spend on the wallet that holds my $$?
We, of course, want the $$ to be well spent. For a specific #, to each their own.
The following was my thought process:
My wallet needs to hold all my cards, plus stash my cash. And, I must be able to easily access both…don’t want to be the person holding up the morning coffee line. Plus, I need to discreetly, externally store my precious monthly metrocard. Therefore, I chose a continental wallet with an exterior pocket.
I would rather not have to go on a search and rescue mission to find my wallet in the dark abyss of my carry all purse. Therefore, I chose polka dots.
I want this daily-used statement piece to be around for a while. Fabric wears & tears. Leather scratches. Therefore, I chose patent leather.
Hope you enjoy wallet shopping as much as I do, it’s my favorite type of shopping.
