The Wonders of Wristlets

I've always avoided the small leather goods known as wristlets because of the somewhat silly name. But I finally road-tested (or, should I say, club-tested) one of these wallets-plus-wrist-strap during my Friday night out with the girls. Now I understand the wonders of these accessories, which are sort of like utilitarian and harder-to-lose clutches. You can hang the wallet from your wrist when you're out on the town, then just toss it in your purse for everyday use. Here are some of my favorite finds at designer and non-designer prices.

Chloe Paddington Mini, $530, available in two colors here.

Coach Legacy Two-Toned Framed Wristlet, $148, available in four colors here.

Betsey Johnson Handbags Disco Betsey Wristlet, $98.95, available in two colors here.

To see the non-designer versions,

Whiting & Davis Metal Mesh Clip-On Mini Bag, $48, available in four colors here.

Target Fold Clutch in Black Crinkle, $12.99, available here.

Old Navy Embellished Tweed Wristlet, $12.50, available here.

I love wristlets too! I have a Coach one and a Michael by Micheal Kors that I use constantly as a wallet or for a purse... I can even fit my Razr phone in it, it's perfect. ----------- “Buy me a dream: Shopping for clothes isn’t about the things you need, it’s about the woman you’ll become when you wear them.”

I swear by wristlets lately. I just can't get enough. I use them on a day-to-day basis, and can drop one in my school bag for class, or put it into a normal purse for other situations/moods. Also, hubby loves it when I'm not carrying around a big bag!

I've been looking, Blonde. I found a HORRIBLE knockoff for $169 but nothing better as of yet.

Here's my question for people who wear those, are they really heavy on the wrist? I don't like purses much, I'm more of wallet girl but these seem intriguing to me. ninja by day, student by night cynsim.com
