My obsession for bags is only surpassed by my obsession for wallets so it’s only fitting that my first blog post of the year center around my love for the Hermes Kelly Wallet.
A lot of people have told me that wallets are like shoes – you really don’t need that many. I feel that a wallet is not only a great accessory but also makes me smile from ear to ear when I find a new one that I can add to my collection. Crazy….perhaps…..but it’s TRUE!
So what is it about the Hermes Kelly Wallet that makes it so great?
Firstly, it’s a versatile piece as you can use it not only as a wallet but as a clutch and evening bag which is a huge bonus as it allows you to use it more often. [TIP: If you loop a twilly or a chain underneath the wallet flap, you can wear it as a shoulder bag or cross body pending on the length].
Secondly, it comes with a great selection of colors and material. I personally prefer the Epsom Leather as as it is similar to Prada’s Saffiano leather but feels softer.. This is more scratch resistant and easier to wipe clean and care for so although you should be careful, you don’t have to be on intense babysitting mode. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the wallet.
Thirdly, the overall look of the wallet. The Kelly Wallet has been inspired by the Kelly Bag so it possesses the beauty that the bag offers. It offers a different style from regular zip around or snap closure continental wallets but is functional and beautiful to look at – you really can’t go wrong.
Fourthly, this is a subtle classic. There is no excessive logos or branding on this wallet, making it a hot favorite amongst those who love designer goods sans the loudness. This also factors in to the high demand, low supply and as a result, exclusivity.
Finally, it’s functional! Yes, a wallet that is beautiful and useful. The size measurements are 11.5 X 19.7 X 2 CM. It has a zipped coin compartment, 2 Billfold compartments along with 12 Card Slots.
If you want an accessory to match the wallet, I recommend the Hermes Rivale Double Tour Bracelet. This bracelet adds polish to the overall look without looking as though you spent a lot of effort.
I always love to have my accessories flow smoothly with my outfit without the overall look being too matchy matchy and this definitely fits the bill and accomplishes what I’m looking for.
Until next time.
