kate spade new york 'mikas pond - lacey' zip around wallet
I like this wallet!
When I initially got this in the mail, I wasn't too impressed by the packaging. I know that this shouldn't affect my review as it has nothing to do with the actual product, but I think that if I'm paying $200 for a wallet, it should at least have a dustbag or some cuter packaging. But that's just my opinion.
As for the actual product, it was SO much brighter than what I had expected. I had ordered the coral color, thinking it would be a more muted coral, but it was florescent! However, this was an oversight on my part as the color name is "Flo Coral." At first I was thinking of returning it for another color, but I quickly grew to LOVE the wallet, as bright as it was.
There does seem to be a strong leather smell. I've had it for a week and I can still smell it, although I don't mind. The zipper zips smoothly, and I like that I can fit my phone in the center zip-up pocket and the wallet will not look bulky. The two cash-pocket on the very sides of the wallet (behind the card-slots) aren't to convenient to put cash, as you really have to dig your fingers in.
The description doesn't say so, but the wallet is made in China. I know some people are interested in knowing these types of things.
Overall though, I really enjoy the wallet. It's well-constructed and very cute, and my friends have all been gushing over it. I can see myself using this wallet for a very long time, and I am extremely pleased with this Kate Spade purchase!
Love the color
I wanted a wallet with a lot of card slots and a nice pop of color (I bought it in blue). This wallet has both but it's smaller than I would expect from a zip around wallet and it's difficult getting the cards out of the top two slots. The zipper gets in the way and I have to flip the zipper over to pull them out. Also, I have to limit the amount of change I can have in it or it's hard to zip but I like that there are separate compartments inside the change section for the occasional small thing that needs to be kept safe.
i really like my new wallet and i always get compliments on it! it has the perfect amount of storage for my credit cards and for coupons and cash. the leather is really nice and doesn't scratch easily. i highly recommend it.
It is everything that I had hoped it would be. She does not disappoint you when you purchase items from her line!
