Finally, the SUVs of coin purses (in terms of price, not size!). No, they're not cheap, but still a super way to carry your favorite Designer without spending thousands!

Very cool. I've been thinking of getting a little coin purse, but haven't been able to find one I liked. But, I really like the one by Liberty of London, so I might go check it out. They were all great though.

Anything from American Apparel I would buy..pretty much addicted to their online store! So AA's minis are the best to me..
trade links?

The gold one is stunning and so is the pink one. But my pick would be the black one with studs! Great post!

Love all of those coin purses - my favorites are the American Apparel, Marc Jacobs, and Renaud Pellegrino purses.

I found the fashion sketches on Google Images after browsing through many pages - I wish I could draw that well!

annabananna said...

wow, they look all so pretty. i always liked those small purses, but i don't know how i would actually use them. do you re-pack everytime you used the little one? noone has so many coins.

RASPBERRY said...

Love the Liberty of London one!

MR style said...

so cool !! if only we where that lucky when it comes to men's items !!

coco said...

I adore the Jil Sander purse, and the first one in gold is also really cute!

AsianCajuns said...

Great selection! I think the gold AA coin purse is my favorite. It has the nicest price tag too ;).

CoutureCarrie said...

Thanks for all your enthusiasm on this post, fashionistas!! I guess a couple of people were wondering: can I really use one of these when I have so much fabulous stuff to stow? CC's answer: these little beauties are to tuck inside a bigger bag; or, for all of those who ride the subway, a great way to safeguard your metrocard so that you don't have to pull out your primary wallet when you swipe! Safer, easier, and the perfect excuse to buy some mini designer duds!! xoxox CC
