So I'm stuck on making a wristlet decision and I need guidance. I have a couple of Coach bags, but my daily-use one now is a blue Kristin Hippie. I can actually stuff quite a bit in it including my wallet- a black Sutton signature skinny (46407), and a mesh pounch of really-small-things-that-would-be-a-nightmare-to-pick-up-if-my-purse-falls-open. Said mesh pouch is in need of an upgrade, but I don't know what to buy.
I stopped by my boutique, and I kinda liked the Madison small pebbled leather wristlet (4x6 in), but it doesn't seem as flexible as a fabric one, and it's only available in persimmon & black now. Also, some of my small things (e.g. a jewelers loupe) are pretty wide, and that makes for a tight fit in the leather.
On the other hand, fabric wristlets all have a signature pattern, and I prefer sig. patterns in one hue. Since I'm not a fan of sig. + brown though, that leaves black, which then is too matchy and easily confused with my wallet.
Am I too picky? Is there a particular older-style small pouch I should look for on the 'bay or ask for @ Jax? Can leather be purposefully stretched by over-stuffing a wristlet, or is that sacrilege? Are fabric wristlets as durable as leather or vice versa? Any input is much appreciated. Thank you!
