So my Rag and Bone wallet wasn't as durable as I hoped. And was too stuffed. So it was time for a new wallet. One that would hold most of my cards, ocassionally fit my phone, and deal with the stuff that accumulates. I have a Prada continental wallet, but it was too small for my phone. I decided to hit up all the boutiques and department stores. I was waffling between full sized and phone sized. I wanted a non neutral color, but not something cherry red. Or pastel. And this is the season of pastels. I wanted mostly leather lined and something premium feeling. Contenders: Ferragamo Prada Celine Michael Kors Collection Prada had potential with the partial zip continental. But there wasn't a color I fell in love with. I thought about visiting the outlets this weekend hoping last seasons colors would work. I found a similar Ferragamo, but the boring black and lack of a back zip made me hesitate. There was a Celine envelope that looked great but was possibly too big. On a whim I stopped in the Burberry store a 15 minutes before closing. I was pleasantly surprised by the zip/flap combo of the Alvington. The zipper area was huge. There were 12 card slots 3 slip pockets. I liked the large zip area that could function as a cash / coins / phone area. And there was an extra slip pocket. The lining was mostly leather. The logo and branding were super minimal. And I left with a big wallet, slightly bigger the my phone wallet. That is fairly slim. Fits my more than essentials. And has room for my mini pen. Who knew Burberry would have what I wanted. As for the color? Dark plum, a nice oxblood / burgundy like color. And it happily fits in most of my small purses. Pics to follow.
