Buying a bag for someone can be a bit difficult; although purses don’t have to “fit,” in the traditional sense of the word, most women have very specific preferences and picadillos about how their bags will be filled and carried.

Some people harbor those same preferences when it comes to wallets, but since they’re not something that has to hang on your arm all day, every day, some sort of money-holder is probably a safer gift. If you’ve still got someone on your list, perhaps consider the Marc by Marc Jacobs Saddlery Continental Wallet.

After a rough start to 2010, Marc by Marc Jacobs has turned out some truly lust-worthy bags as of late, and this little accessory is just the latest. I usually prefer brighter in-bag pieces so that they’re easy to find, but the two textures of leather and gold hardware make this wallet look so rich that I’m having a hard time resisting its considerable charms. Buy through ShopBop for $258.

    I’m really loving all the Marc Jacobs bags lately!

    Interesting Style its very Rich in look, reminds me of a better looking wallet called “JARZU CMW” Clutch Make-up Wallet. Wonderful leather always works!

  • Redo My Shoe

    This wallet is so not functional. Who’s going to want to unbuckle it each time they need to take something out. And we all know the metal plat is bound to get severely scratched.

    The metal square makes me wince. Too many scratches from being jostled about in your purse. (ipad)

    Actually I adore this wallet. Yes it’s a bit masculine and non-functional but so sturdy looking and offers up something different from the usual flip or zip styles
