Hey all, need some help here! OK, first of all, I know writing checks is very passe nowadays - we've got debit cards, paypal and online bill paying now, right? I definitely do all that but still occasionally have a need to write a check. And I need to update my checkbook cover in a huge way! I'm almost embarrased to say this but here goes: mine is an old Liz Claiborne one that I've had since college. Remember when those bags with the triangle repeated patterns were all the rage? Well, I got a wallet in that pattern years ago (dark grey and black) and eventually separated the checkbook cover from the rest of the wallet. It's held up amazingly well but gives me 1988 flashbacks, yikes . I really like carrying my checkbook separate from my wallet (a black leather Prada). I don't need my checkbook every day but when I do I really would like to find something up to date if that's possible. I love dark colors as most of my bags I normally carry are LV mono or various designers in black or other deep colors. I went to Nordstrom last weekend and was disappointed that the only checkbook colors were these lame shiny leather things that looked totally cheezy. Should I just use the plastic one that came with my bank and just give up? Sorry this is long! TIA!
