I've never received anything so nice, and I was so excited that I quickly transferred all my cash to the new wallet and threw out my old (10 years!) wallet at the restaurant. And touted it around happily the next day. Till I realised that there was a little blob of glue on it.
My brother scratched it off for me as I watched and winced.
Well it's a very nice wallet and I'm hoping to use it for a fairly long time- another decade at least. So in the meantime I made a little pocket to protect my precious Prada commodity- using the fabric in which the wallet was wrapped when I first received it.
Here's how you can make a dowdy wallet protector. It will protect your expensive purse in two ways:
1) by covering it from the dust and uncapped pens in your handbag and;
2) keeping the brand hidden from potential snitches.
(As you can probably tell, I love my new wallet so much I'm protecting it like a baby. Charlie was a bit weirded out and is waiting to see how long I will stay with this system).
Please read all instructions before starting :)
I used a ribbon to tie mine but have since removed it since the flap seems to stay closed in my bag.
The only embarrassing thing is taking out the pocket, then my wallet, then the cash at the register.
I'm not sure how long I'll use my pocket for- but while my wallet still feels new, I want to keep it looking like this for as long as I can :D
