Recently I have had the desire for a new Coach wallet. I refuse to spend the money on a Coach handbag, but for some reason I think spending an absurd amount of money on the wallet is just fine. I guess I love the idea of something expensive holding my money and keeping it safe. Plus I get all warm and fuzzy when pulling it out at the checkout at Walmart ;) There are two wallets that I am currently in love with, but if I truly intend to buy, I'd have to check out the PX (no tax and all).
Here are the two I love:
Kristin Leather Checkbook Wallet--I am totally drawn to this pink one, and I am NOT usually a pink type of girl. It also come in yellow or mushroom which I like as well. And now that I'm looking again, I'm torn b/w the pink or yellow one. Since I have no plans on buying one of these leather beauties anytime soon I have time to make up my mind.
Madison Dotted Op Art Checkbook Wallet--I love this one in the Khaki color with the pink interior. (What is it with me and pink right now?) I like the light color being a contrast to my current black wallet because I always like to change things up. The body of this wallet is fabric and leather, and I do worry about the fabric getting dirty though.
The other thing that is on my wish list and I will be purchasing soon is sandals. I prefer cheap ones. And they MUST be comfortable. I usually am a flip flop girl, but like I said in my other post, I'm trying to dress up a bit more and find femininity. I have quite a few casual dresses for the summer, some that are dressed down with a tank underneath and others that are slightly less dressed down. Has anyone seen any cute, cheap, and comfortable sandals anywhere--flats, wedges, flip flop style, it doesn't matter? Where did your favorite sandals come from?
The last thing I want to share is a shopping experience with you. A few weeks ago I purchased a bathing suit from Land's End Canvas. Land's End Canvas is a division of the original Land's End but focused at a modern lifestyle, and the clothes have a closer to the body fit and clean lines. I had never shopped there before, and to be honest, I felt like the prices were pretty high. I liked the casual, practical styles though. I was just browsing through the sale pages and saw lots of great bathing suits for pretty cheap. I had fallen in love with one color a while back when browsing, so this time at the site I decided to purchase it. I spent $30 (including shipping) and got a really cute tankini. I tried it on, and it is both a great quality and a nice fit. I was pretty pleased with my purchase. But the real thing I wanted to share was that about a week and a half after my purchase arrived I received a HANDWRITTEN thank you note from Land's End for my purchase. I thought that was pretty cool that the company does that. I've never received a handwritten thank you note from any other online shopping before. But that wasn't all. About a week after the note, I receive a message on my answering machine thanking me for the purchase and saying that if I needed any help to call them. Some might think this is overkill, but I appreciate the effort this company is putting in to customer service. The note they sent says their items are 100% guaranteed--period! So I do recommend checking them out even if only because of their customer service--plus they still have some really inexpensive bathing suits in the sale section!
And just for the record, I am not paid for any of my reviews or opinions. I am not compensated, and if that ever changes I will be the first to let you know. I just want to share my experience and thoughts with you.
