Review: LV Zippy Coin Purse

Hi guys!  Hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving.  I'm back with another wallet review and this is going to be a really quick post.  I'm trying to finish as much requested review as I can since I'm going for 2 month vacation.  Yay!  Can't wait to spend the holidays with my family!

Anyways, today's review is about the Zippy Coin Purse.


Detailed Features:  (www.louisvuitton.com)
  • 4.33 x 3.15 inches
  • Monogram Multicolore canvas, grained leather lining, golden brass pieces
  • Zipper closure
  • Two gusseted compartments
  • Retails for 455 usd
Thoughts:

The reason why I got this wallet is because whenever I ran errand or grab a cup of coffee, I don't really like to take my big purse with me, rather I love to use my Eva clutch.  That clutch is pretty small and I want a wallet that would hold my cards and bills.   I used to use a small coach wallet before but it is all streched out now that my cards fall off easily which is really unsafe.  That's why when I was looking for a replacement I made sure  that my cards will be safe.  Then I saw the zippy coin purse and that's when I knew it was the right one for me.  It has a zipper that goes all around... the size is compact and fits great inside the eva clutch.  They have different colors of lining to choose from.  For mine I chose the baby pink and I think it is referred to as "litchi" in their site.

Inside there are two large compartments where you can put your bills, coins or receipts.  Then there is another two "hidden"  pockets on both ends.  On both sides of the wallet there is two card slots but I don't really use the slots.  I love that the compartment is very roomy.  I just all stick my cards inside and I don't have to worry of stuffing it so much because I know all my cards and bills are secure inside.  


It is a little pricey for a coin purse but LV wallets last a really long time.  I've used it so much together with my Eva clutch.  I felt like they go so well together.  

I love that it is white because it looks very feminine but the only issue I have is that it gets dirty easy.  It is hard to clean the stain especially on the zipper fabric.  I guess it is a trade off because white is really a dirt magnet.  But other than that, I love the zippy coin purse a lot. 

Hope this review is helpful guys!

Review: LV Sarah Wallet in Multicolore

Hi guys! It has been awhile! So sorry for the lack of posts. I am doing well.. =)  Been traveling and been busy with so many things and with a little bit of procrastinating... but anyways, thank you so much for  visiting my blog and to my two lovely sisters who keeps on bugging me for reviews and updates.. finally a post!  Hehehe! You know I love you two! ;)  And also I have a great news to share!  But will put it in a separate posts! 

Anyways, today I'll share with you another requested wallet review and it is the LV Sarah Wallet in Multicolore.

The Monogram Multicolore canvas was designed by Takashi Murakami  and was introduced in the Spring of 2003. It is consists of 33 silkscreened colors.  I love how vibrant the colors are.  Each purses or wallets differ on the predominance of color combination.  Some have fuchsia, white, green.. some have dark yellow, dark pink, and dark purple.  And with my Sarah wallet the predominant combination of colors are dark blue, chartreuse,  and light blue.



Detailed features:  (www.louisvuitton.com)
  • 7.5X4 inches
  • Monogram Multicolore canvas, grained leather lining, golden brass pieced
  • Press stud closure
  • Ten credit card slots (4 in front, 6 inside)
  • One large pocket for bills and receipts
  • Two large compartments for notes and papers
  • One zippered compartment for coins
  • Retails at 765 usd



Thoughts:

I've had this wallet for about - months and I am in love with it! I use it everyday except of course on days when I carry a smaller purse or my eva clutch.  I chose the monogram multicolore because whenever I look at my zippy coin purse in white multicolore it always cheers me up. I love the play of colors and it is such a delight every time I use it.   However since it is white it gets dirty really easy especially the fabric of the zipper.  It really bugged me so I opted for black for the Sarah wallet.  They have different colors to choose from for the lining but I love the combination of fuchsia pink with black.  I think the color term is grenade.  I love how the pink stands out giving it a nice pop of color.

Aside from the color, what I really love about this wallet is how the card slots are arranged.  There are 4 card slots in the front where you can put your most commonly used credit or debit cards.  Believe me this really makes a huge difference especially if you are in a rush to pay.  You don't have to rummage inside your wallet to look for your card.  The other six card slots are neatly concealed inside so you can put your rewards card or spare credit cards you don't use often.  There is a zippered pocket in between two large compartments for coins but I don't really put coins in my wallet.  I have a separate coin purse because I feel like my wallet holds up better and longer if I don't put coins in it. There is also a large compartment at the back.  Kindda like a "secret" compartment where you can put bills.

I think the Sarah wallet is a pretty good size for everyday use. The two large compartments can hold a pretty good amount of notes and receipts.  It is not as big as the Zippy wallet but for everyday use it is great.  I like it that it has a press stud closure because it is so much easier to access it.  So far I don't have issues with the silkscreen monogram chipping or peeling.  The glaze on the side is still intact which I know some people have issues with it as well.    Aside from light scratches on the golden brass bacause of normal wear, the wallet still looks new.  I find that LV wallet lasts long and ages pretty well.

So those are my thoughts about Sarah wallet.  I hope this review is helpful to you guys.   Zippy coin purse review coming up next! =)
