“ Brand: Volcom / Type: Money Belt - Wallet / Gender: Female „
This Volcom purse of mine was sort of a Birthday present from my best friend. I say sort of because she had actually bought me a large brown purse made by Rusty but the popper fastener on this was terrible so it was lucky she had sealed up the receipt for me to take it back if need be. I knew it would have cost around £20 because this is the price we always spend on each other.
So I decided even though I didn't especially need a new purse, I would take it back and exchange it for another purse and this was how I have come to own this Volcom Purse.
I can't say that this bright pink colour is something I would usually go for but it was clear that my friend has picked the best looking purse with the brown Rusty one and it took me a good half an hour to decide on this one (and even then I was slightly dubious).
I had to pay an extra £4.99p as it was priced at £24.99p but this was in my local surf wear shop and prices here are usually a lot higher on line so I would suggest looking around on the internet for it and I suspect you could find it a fair bit cheaper.
The purse has really grown on me and the pink colour is something I really like now. At first I wasn't too sure but having had several comments from shop workers I feel proud to pull out my large pink purse! Not only does it look pretty good but because of the bright colour it is super easy to find when hunting for it in the depths of my "Mary Poppin's" Style bags!
The pink purse is made from a leather material and has slight wrinkles over it which makes it look slightly worn already. This is good for not being too upset when the purse does really being to show its age. The material inside the purse is cool too as it has a sort of black and white zebra print on a smooth satin material. Both the inside and outside are easy to wipe clean although mine is not especially dirty yet, having only had it the 5 months since March.
There are two main sections of the purse and these are the side which is sealed by a popper button and although on the outer section of the purse it appears to be sealed with two poppers at each end of the flap, this is just an illusion and under the flap sits one easy to open and close popper. The other section of the purse is opened via a pink zip. I have attached a key ring to this meaning that the zip is less fiddly as it is on the small side.
The side which is sealed with poppers, is where I store all my cards. I have tons of store cards and loyalty cards and this manages to hold more or less all of them. There is a section for six cards but these can be doubled up and there is one large slot at the back which I have tucked even more in and the wallet has expanded nicely to make room for them. There is also a section to put your driving licence so that the photo can be seen when ID is required to be shown, easily. Again behinds this section there is another large storage section which I have put a few little notes and old receipts.
The zip part of the purse is where I have all my real money. Not that I have a lot as I usually use my cash back credit card for all purchases. Inside the zip is another zip up section which holds all the coins nicely and because this smaller part is in the middle of the large zip section is has seemingly made two areas in which other items can be stored such as receipts, photos or the odd chaps telephone number!!!
The purse may be large in length but it is not especially bulky considering how much bits I have stored inside it. I have to say that it is a real statement purse and I have grown to love it! Especially when people have commented to me about it!
It's got to be a top mark for this Volcom purse. It has been made to a high quality, looks good, fits lots of bits in, feels good and looks the business! 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommended!
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
