I used to have this faux crocodile teal color wallet...I used it for a long time even when I fell in love with Vera Bradley bags. Back then Vera Bradley didnt make a wallet big enough for me, the biggest one was a Zip Around Wallet and I wanted more space. My mom bought a Turn Lock Wallet in Microfiber and I was hoping that they would add it to the Signature Collection because it was the perfect size. Well, it happened! They added it to the Signature Collection, but my old wallet still had some life in it and I love a good deal so I decided that I could wait until I could get one on sale.
On March 22, 2010 about a month after I started writing OhMyVera my new wallet arrived! Click here to see that post. Part of me though about waiting until March to do a 2 year update once I figured out that I bought it in March...but now is as good of a time as any.
This wallet is the only wallet that I have used over the last two year. On occasion I will use a small wallet for a night out when I use a small bag. Other than that, this is what a wallet looks like after daily use for almost 2 years! In a couple of the photos it looks a little faded, but it is just the bright sun coming through the window.
This is the front of my wallet.
Worn out corner...at least there are two layers of material!
Another worn out corner...this one doesnt look as good.
Worn out on the other side, but this spot has two layers of fabric as well...this is one of the faded looking photos...not really that faded, still quite bright.
See still bright :) Wear on the corner and paint coming off the zipper.
But look at all this space! All those cards, plus there is a larger slot behind the top and bottom part for more cards or whatever you would want to stick in there.
This is the zipper side! I have my LivingSocial deals, a calendar, lottery ticket and cash. I should have taken the photo the other direction...there are 6 more card slots on the cash side.
