You don't need to give me a lecture about how I should save my money for things I really want, or shop more frugally. I do those things regularly. Well, kind of. And sometimes, I just want it. I WANT IT. NOW.
And sometimes, I get it:
Like this awesome, oversized, zip-around wallet/clutch from Nordstrom's. I love it. It is big enough to hold all my crap: various customer loyalty cards, a pope medal - seriously, emergency earrings (you don't carry those?). Please note specifically how I didn't mention cash. Because my wallet isn't actually used for that, silly!
One of my favorite parts is the ID sleeve. There is a small ID sleeve in the wallet, with a space for three cards. This small piece snaps in and out of the wallet, keeping all my critical cards together so I can throw it in a going-out evening bag or whatever. I like how everything zips up and I can throw the whole thing into a diaper bag, or just run into Starbucks with the wallet/clutch, as opposed to my giant handbag.
In my experience, the Halogen brand, which is Nordy's house brand, has a good reputation, and if it breaks or doesn't work out for me, the customer service at Nordstrom's is the best, and they will take it back or replace without a question.
I know I probably spent a little too much for it, and I really would have preferred something in a brighter color, since the purse I am carrying right now is also grey, but I think I can learn to live with this.
What fun things have you splurged on lately?
