Ladies and gentlemen…
Please applaud to welcome my latest and proudest (almost) purchase of the year -Braun Buffel Luisa Card Holder! True to the line – love comes when you least expect it.
My quest for the perfect purse had been going on for quite a while till I gave up. My ideal wallet is:
1. Smaller than palm
2. Cards compartment
3. Coin compartment
5. Pocket size
6. Not too ugly
You see..it’s easy…yet hard.
I found a close to perfect one from Coach (Skinny Leather), but I couldn’t find it locally; then I found one in Braun Buffel, a coin purse at about USD$100 is too much to pay for.
I have been using a tissue holder as purse (thanks to connie who gifted this to me), until I realized that it was really inelegant to whip out my tri-folded money.
Most importantly was – it became hard to keep track of the notes I had when they were all crumpled together. And to be honest, I would not know if I have lost any money before when I pulled the notes out.
Losing track of your money is bad.
Now, let’s see again why this Luisa card holder is almost perfect for me.
1. The hard leather has a glossy finish, it’s thin and quite compact
2. Cute with the pink stitch design.
3. It has card compartments, and a note compartment. Unfortunately, the note compartment does not fit larger notes.
Since Ringgit is still my everyday-currency, so it’s all good!
4. It has a clear ID window, 2 credit card slots, a gusseted multi cards compartment (for my important membership cards).
5. The rear exterior pocket is for the convenience of holding parking ticket.
Overall, it is good enough to hold my daily essentials and fits all my requirement.
However, you may notice that it does not have a coin compartment, but I have already accepted the imperfection. And decided to end the long search for the perfect wallet.
And the best part is…I got it from Tangs in Orchard Singapore for only SDG$49 (~RM122.50), it was on special price and was told that it usually retails at SGD$79.
God must have heard my prayers.
