Add: Sari confirmed with me that she can order more of the blue wallets, so if you want one, let her know!!
Lately I have found myself leaving the house with my wallet only. My wallet is a big Louis Vuitton zip wallet, which can hold my cell phone, passport, and lip gloss without bulging hugely. This is a huge perk for me, as I typically do not need many things with me when I run out of the house for an errand. Once there will be children, there will be an entirely different story, but for now many times my wallet works. But I need to dress this wallet up. A wallet that doubles over as a clutch needs to be a statement piece, just as our handbags are. I need this to be my accessory to my outfit, and for this, I have found the perfect wallet! Remember our December giveaway for 2007, which included a Chanel Classic Flap, $1000 gift card to Hayden Harnett, and that beautiful wallet? Well it was an Adriana Castro Wallet, which is my new obsession. Adriana Castro is a lover of exotic skins, which she began to appreciate as a child growing up in Columbia since her father had a crocodile farm. The young designer has been dreaming up designs since she was a child, and today they are making their way into the hearts of many. Lucky for me, Adriana lives close by and we will be meeting her this week or next week! Lucky for you, two of her fabulous wallets are for sale on Lux Couture right now.
First there is the Adriana Castro Lady Zip Wallet in Blue crocodile. This color is eye catching and perfect for a true statement piece. I am very fond of blue, as it brings out my eyes and goes perfectly with my skin tone. The inside is made with leather and has a center zip pocket and many credit card slots. Dimensions are 4.5″H x 8″W. The clincher is the price! This is not one of those $1000 wallets, furthermore it is similar in price to my Damier Canvas LV Wallet. And while I love my LV wallet, the materials of this wallet are far more luxurious. Buy this blue gem via Lux Couture for $450 (right now it says sold out, but contact Sari and see if she can order for you! She is always willing to help).
Next is the Adriana Castro Snap Wallet in Caramel crocodile which is a timeless color on an easily accessible wallet. The inside leather is also caramel and there is an envelope pocket along with credit card slots. Dimensions are 4.5″H x 8″W. This color plays it safe, but by no means is dull. Caramel glazed crocodile will stand out and garner all the attention you need. Again, the price is beyond amazing. The quality of these wallets are astounding! Buy through Lux Couture for $450.
