As counter-intuitive as it might sound, spending money on a wallet--the device that holds your cold hard cash--is not a bad investment. I think there's something hopeful about springing for something shiny to replace a boring plain wallet. If you need a reason to rationalize, then consider this: a wallet is something we all use multiple times a day, every day.
If you like your wallet on the petite side, check out Burberry's glittery Ziggy Wallet. Coach has a more affordable version of the cute mini square with a detachable strap that makes it holiday party worthy. For simplicity with shine, Vivienne Westwood has a nice sized wallet that won't break the bank at $192. Set on having a black wallet? The YSL Y Mail is a whimsical but timeless collectible that puts a sparkly spin on basic black, or if you'd like a more of a rocker feel, the new MJ Large Zip Python-effect wallet can provide just that. For all out glam, the Givenchy Metallic Continental trumps the bunch (with a glitzy price tag to match).
After living in Los Angeles for over a decade, a Prada wallet rarely excites me because they're so ubiquitous--but this gold Saffiano Zip-Around version just might change my mind!
So tell me, is there a special wallet that makes your heart beat faster?
