In honor of my guest stint at Corporette, where women earn a living, save that living via intelligent wardrobe purchases, all in order to create new family fortunes, I thought I’d have a giveaway. A wallet. Correct symbol, no?
Open to all regular readers, or even now-and-then-readers, but not to Internet pool sweepers looking for loot, it’s two years old, brown, and made by the Italian firm, J.P. Tod’s. Leather is quite soft to the hand, and the wallet shows very few signs of wear.
Why give it away? Well, it’s quite possible that at the same time I obtained this Tory Burch dress I also found myself the owner of a new wallet. We won’t discuss how it happened, but I will admit that Sales and 30% Off and Free Glasses Of Water were involved.
Just leave a comment, and if you’ve got time, tell me the story of the wallet you best remember. Could be the pink patent leather Hello Kitty from 3rd grade. Could be the Ferragamo from which you paid for all your kids’ school supplies. Or your dad’s, worn and weathered, buying you ice cream on Saturday afternoons. I will draw a winner on Tuesday of next week.
Finally, please help me decide if one more item in my closet is worth giving away. I have a black Marc Jacobs Blake satchel, worn at the corners, and rather full of ballpoint pen marks in the interior, but still nifty. I do not know the mores of vintage. Do the pen marks negate the bag’s value? If not, I’ll give it away too, next week.
Have an absolutely wonderful weekend everyone, and don’t go too wild on this Thursday night. Yes. I do remember those days.
