Wristlet Necessities

The type of things that you can carry in a wristlet varies for every woman. I don’t think there are rules for what you can carry in this type of purse.

Also, some wallets are designed with less credit card pockets/slots than others. There are some handbags that come in with build in slots and an ID window to store your cards.

If you like carrying your wallet inside your handbag, here are some useful tips on the different types of wallet sizes you can choose from:

Zipper vs. Snap Wallet

Zipper vs. Snap Wallet

Some people prefer a zipper wallet over a snap wallet because of design, style, size, and other factors. I personally prefer a zippered wallet because I think it’s more secured. A zipper wallet prevents your credits cards, bills, and other important belongings from falling out. Although there are some snap wallets that are designed to prevent these types of problems, this could still be one of the down sides from a snap wallet. Whether you prefer a snap wallet over a zipper wallet, here are some useful tips on how to choose a zipper vs. a snap wallet.

  • The differences between these two wallets are slight. Some snap wallets include a key chain/D-ring so you can add your keys. This could work for those who like carrying their keys attached to their wallets.
  • The zipper of the wallet can brake compared to a snap wallet. It’s also easy for bills and receipts to get stuck in the zipper making it difficult to open. A snap wallet can last longer.
  • In a snap wallet your personal belongings like your ID’s, bills, coupons, and receipts can fall out since it’s not entirely zipped.
  • With a zippered wallet it can take you longer to open it where as with a snap wallet, in just of a snap of a finger it opens.

Most pouches are not expensive (unless you are eyeing a designer pouch bag!) so you can buy numerous ones to suit whatever occasion, mood or outfit. Pair a summer dress with a crochet pouch, or coordinate a leather zipper pouch may be used to with your jeans and tee. Pouch bags in bright floral fabrics will give a bohemian look.
