Disaster Designs Love Letters Wallet
Advantages: Price, looks, build
Disadvantages: Card slots a bit small?
I have never seen or heard of anyone else who has the Disaster Designs Love Letters Wallet but I note there is another review on here, so we are clearly kindred handbag spirits!
The Disaster Designs Love Letters Wallet is available online for around £20. I thought this was a fair price, as I purchased it to go with a dark cream dress which I wore for a wedding. I wanted a bag which not only went with that dress, but which was quirky, too. I like vintage looking items, picture postcard styled things, and Cath Kidston prints, so this was right down my street.
When the bag arrived I wasn't dissapointed, much the opposite, it looks much brighter and feels so lovely 'in the flesh'. At just under 20cm in length it's the ideal clutch bag, but I've found that after going to the wedding, I just didn't want to stop using it, so it's now used often, dressed down with jeans or with a little faux fur on an evening at the theatre or out to dinner. It gets so many compliments. The bag itself is styled as you can see like an old fashioned letter, and has embellishments of a spray of flowers and a pearlised button too, which is so sweet. It's a sepia colour and the back of the bag is exactly like the back of an old fashioned triangle envelope.
Opening the bag (which has a nice strong clasp) there are a few sections and a zip up compartment inside, I keep small items like lipsticks and a comb in the larger sections and change and my bank card in the zip up section. There is a row of card holders, I don't know whether it is just me or my cards, but I find these quite tight, almost like they are designed for smaller cards. I do keep bits and bobs in there - vouchers, photos and so on, but it's not something I use for my day to day bank cards as it's not that easy to pull them out and replace them when you're in a queue at the checkout!
Overall, however, I highly recommend the Disaster Designs Love Letters Wallet, even with that small quirk, because there are plenty of sections in which to place your essential items, and the bag itself is so well made and so pretty that it is your go-to bag for a nice accessory to perk up an outfit. I've not seen the brand previously but I'll certainly be visiting their website for nice pieces to give as gifts, because they tend to be pretty unique when you are out and about.
For the money, when you can buy a boring plain clutch for well over £20, I think the Disaster Designs Love Letters Wallet is a lovely, affordable quirky handbag which is so versatile and adaptable to any occasion. I've had mine only six months and it's a firm favourite. I'm happy to give it a 5 star out of 5 rating because if you buy it you won't be disappointed, I certainly wasn't.
Summary: A gorgeous versatile purse
