So yesterday, the sun was shining, it was a happy happy day, great company, great food but lo and behold….. I fell victim to pick pockets and my beloved Anna Sui wallet is now probably lying in a gutter somewhere with some sad neo-print stickers and shop receipts falling out of it (whoever stole it are suckers because I NEVER carry cash on me and they can try all they want with my credit and bank cards but HELLO!….we now live in a PIN-number controlled world!)
However, I’m not gonna bawl about it for long because it means I now have an excuse to buy a new wallet! Now, I have already said that I’m not all that bothered about designer bags but I am prepared to shell out for a wallet because I have gone through my fair share of cheap wallets and with the amount of wear and tear I put my wallet through, I need something that smacks of quality. At the same time though, I’m not about to buy the usual suspects like Gucci, LV, Dior, Prada, Mulberry etc. only because their designs are just…so….boring…..
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far….(not even going to contemplate going window shopping for my wallet until I get all my ATM cards back…….)
For cool simplicity, I could plump for Comme des Garcons:
For that artsy crafty feel, London jewellery designer Lara Bohinc has some great brass plated wallets:
For some quirky bling, Miu Miu has some lovely wallets:
I know it’s a very typical HK label to choose but some of the Vivienne Westwood wallets are striking (not too keen on the usual plaid ones though…)
I could revert back to Anna Sui with these uber girly selections (my original one was about the most masculine one there is so I suppose I could try the other end of the spectrum!):
Any thoughts on my dilemma?
