I've been MIA for a bit crazed with work, but amidst the stress of course I could not help but pay homage to the flagship Dior store at avenue Montaigne. I particularly loved how the SA's were so knowledgable.

In any event, I discovered the most delightful thing. Some of you may know I'm obsessed with the WOC/Wallet on Chain/ pochette with card slots and space for cell phone.

I hadn't taken twice a look at the Lady Dior wallet/clutch because I thought it was too small, but the one I got is perfect. I discovered something quite tricky - this same looking wallet comes in various sizes but also most importantly it was the one with the large single gusseted compartment (when looking from the side) and the long cross-body chain that did it for me because it fit my phone and bulky car key.

I found her in a lovely patent violet hue with light gold hardware. I am in love all over again... Dior, what are you doing to me?!?!

Here she is hanging out w me as I await my flight. I've taken extras to showcase length and the lovely spacious girth

Thanks everyone! I so lucked out with the color. I was originally trying to get the Miss Dior version of this wallet (same length and girth and 4 more card slots) because it seemed more formal with the front lock clasp, but they only had very light colors like Pink and Vermillion in the entire country (France). Of course when I'm back state-side I want to bug my SA to see if she can't track one down in the US (even though a little pricier in the US).

If anyone is considering these wallet styles for cell phone storage, I highly recommend you get the one with the single gusset on the side like mine above - there are at least 3 different styles and they all look so similar and it's so confusing. The smaller ones have like two or three gussets on the side but it's more 2-dimensional and won't fit a cell phone (or will, but will make it difficult to also have that + cash + cards).

There is also a large CLUTCH version of this style but you can tell the difference because that one the front "flap" goes all the way down, not mid-way like the one showed here, which looks more like the wallet-wallet. Of course that one will hold a lot but it won't have the multple card slots like above (which to me is the whole pt).

We are such mutual enablers! I love you guys :biggrin:

Congrats! It looks very roomy! Can we get modeling shots? How does it compare to half moon WOC size wise

This is a good question!

Haven't taken worthy modeling shots quite yet but always happy to add to the PF library of reference pics for size...

Here are a selection of popular models of wallets on chain (cross body, more than 3+ CC slots, and convertible chain), and a comparison of front and side. You will notice that the Dior new lock pochette is just as slim and the same length just taller (I added to the batch towards end) and the girth is comparable to half moon although in the half moons defense it's not stuffed at all...

Very informative!!! I have the same reissue WOC and a different shade of blue half moon!
