Wallets
We all talk about our handbags and the ones we will be purchasing, but I don't see anything about wallets. I, myself, have a no brand wallet and would like to get a really nice one. I have been looking at Louis Vuitton Epi and Chanel, but that's as far as I get - looking. What wallet(s) does everyone carry in their bags. Also, are you happy with them.

I am currently carrying this Hermes Dogon
it's beautiful and indestructible, but insanely expensive and not entirely practical. it does double as a nice clutch though. but it's huge and forces me to carry huge bags.

I'm using an orange LV epi checkbook wallet right now. I love it... I'm prone to losing EVERYTHING and not closing or zipping up my wallets after I take something out, but this one has been so easy to use.

Maxi, Chanel has these wallets in slik with No5 and all of the typical Chanel trademarks thrown onto it, they are off the chains but as expensive as thier lambskin wallets.

I don't carry a wallet, I have a money clip which keeps everything I need in order and ULTRA slim, which is a big deal for me.

meowmix, the orange epi is the same one I am debating on.

dioling, I bet the silk chanel is gorgeous, but I'd be afraid I'd ruin it fast. I need something that can really take a beating - that is why I never invested in an expensive wallet before, however, when I take a client out to lunch or dinner, I need something really nice.

I think the epi is great... the change pouch is easy to close and so is the entire wallet so there's not much fuss. I always hated when I'd spend forever trying to get my bills and change in order when i'm using cash or even if i'm just pulling out a credit card. It's also very sturdy and hasn't gotten dirty even though I beat it up pretty badly.

it holds the kitchen sink, which is part of the problem. not really practical at all but it's beautiful. fashion over function. I used to have this wallet and it was great -- compact but roomy.



the LV Epi line is truly fantastic too. really pretty yet indestructuble. I've had this agenda for 10 years and it still looks brand new

I think I'm going to defintiely get a LV epi wallet. I have an epi makeup bag and a backpack and just love them . They actually can take a beating and look just as good as the day I bought them.

One question for those of you who have LV wallets. Is it the Tresor Wallet that has room for checkbook and register?

Thanks,
Maxi
