Don’t get me wrong. I love fashion. ALL areas of fashion. That being said, I have to admit that up until recently I was the girl who might arrive at a fancy dinner, glammed up from head-to-toe… with my credit card, ID, and cell phone held not-so-securely in my hand.
I understand that this is basically irresponsible: what if I were to set my things down for a moment? But in my defense, there were reasons for this behavior:
1. I am possibly a bit scatterbrained.
2. I have been burned by the old “I grabbed this bag but left all of my stuff in the other one” phenomenon. (Ummm…. Can I pay you back tomorrow??)
3. My everyday style leans towards “boho,” and even the prettiest handbag can sometimes add a subtle yet unwanted fussy/bulky element to an otherwise-breezy look.
The solution to this very first world problem of mine: WRISTLETS.
Wristlets are day and nighttime appropriate, have zero priss-factor, can be thrown into a larger bag and used as wallet, and– pay attention fellow scatterbrains– you won’t lose your things, as they are cutely tethered to your actual body.
Below are some of my personal faves, all of which are beyond affordable:
