Hi!

I haven't posted here in a loooooooong time! We hit a rough patch when my husband lost his job and the first thing to get cut from the budget was personal money. It was really hard for me to come here and see all of the new bags and sales so I just took some time off.

Anyway, I have the Ashley Satchel that was in factory stores this summer in the metallic purple color (Coach calls it Iris). My problem is I am having a very hard time finding a wallet to go with it. I have pretty bad OCD in regards to matching bags and wallets. Normally, I won't even buy a bag if it doesn't have a matching wallet, but this was so pretty I just had to. I thought I would find the wallet on eBay or something, but no dice.

So my question for you knowledgeable ladies is did they even make a wallet to match this? If I could just get a style number, I could start calling all of the factory stores to see if any have one left.

Thank you in advance to any one who might be able to help! =)

And Happy Holidays to everyone! =)

From what you said about loving matching bag and wallet I would say the ones Bag Fetish found are great choices. However I would suggest maybe getting a nice silver or gunmetal wallet. I love carrying a metallic wallet because it goes with every bag and even when you carry it alone it looks great sort of like a clutch you are carrying.

Whatever you choose good luck and I am sure you will love it. Please show us pics when you get one.

I agree I think either of those choices ^^^ would be great as well.

these hold a lot as well and are nice because a cell will fit in there and is perfect for days when you dont want to carry a bag.

these a re nice as well... and will hold your life.

another thought is this madison cosmetic case...

and when you get tired of using it as a wallet you can use for a small carryall in your purse or makeup case.

I just got one of these and i'm using it for a wallet. I have a small cles/skinny mini in there for change... if you check this thread you'll see pic's there...

Thank you so much ladies! Bag Fetish, you sure know your stuff! =)

I do already have a silver metallic wallet that I guess I can use. I pretty much hate having OCD, it just drives me batty when the purse and wallet don't match! Argh! And it only bothers me if it's mine - if it's a friend, family member, stranger, whatever I don't even notice. =/

Also, I think this forum has it out for me, I mentioned taking a break last time because my husband lost his job...well I come back and he just got his hours cut. Poop. =(

Anyway, thank you both for your help and I will *try* using the silver metallic wallet I have for now. If either of you (or anyone else) come across a wallet that exactly matches this bag then please let me know! I would greatly appreciate it! =)

Happy holidays!

If you try to get one to match and it doesn't match exactly, it will look worse than if you got a contrasting color. I have a khaki purse with a plum patent stripe. I bought a wallet that looked like it matched on Ebay but it was slightly off because Coach makes a version of this color combination every year, but every year the plum is different.
I'm so sorry about your husband's job.
