[Every girl needs a good purse (or 12). Whether you’re going for groceries or running from class to class, they are simply essential for holding all your, uh, essentials. Each week, I’m going to show you a fashionable, yet functional purse for the college crowd and let you know why you absolutely need it! I apologize ahead of time to your bank account.]
Let me just start off by saying that I’m EXTREMELY excited about this review! I came upon this set the other day and my face just lit up. Every time I go out and want to carry a wristlet (you know, a pouch on a string that goes around your wrist), I always sigh. I only own 2, one black and one nude and for a handbag columnist, that’s pitiful. Thankfully, LeSportsac and JOYRICH have come together to solve my wristlet needs in a creative and chic way!
Some genius over at LeSportsac or JOYRICH finally decided to make a set of wristlets with an interchangeable chain! That’s right – you can swap the chic chain strap (with a dainty black ribbon running through it) between the pouches. That means you can adjust your wristlet for how much you need to carry or to match your outfit! Sure, sure, you could always buy three separate wristlets. But, trying to find 3 quality ones for $70 – not easy! Plus, with the chain, you’re able to carry more than one wristlet/pouch at a time! Going out for the day and need a change purse and a carrier for your cell? Add the 2 smallest pouches to the chain and you’re good to go!
And let’s just talk about the super cute patterns used on these bad boys! There are two sets to choose from: one featuring leopard print, black quilted faux patent and a cream/floral pattern that screams English rose and the other with plaid tartan, a pixelated black satin and a black/floral that is oh-so-punky. I prefer the leopard set, but that’s just me!
Now, the numbers. The Large pouch runs 7.5″H x 9″L, with Medium at 6″H x 8″ L and Small being 4.5″H x 7.5″L. Just to give you some perspective, the small pouch is perfect for a night on the town, when all you need is a few cards, a lipstick and your phone, while the large will fit a smaller wallet and a bunch of trinkets for a day of sightseeing.
I will definitely be picking up the LeSportsac JOYRICH Pouch Set (in leopard, of course!). This is a perfect back-to-school treat that will serve you well during your many nights of, ahem, studying.
