    Default Yves Saint Laurent Black Patent Continental Wallet


    Ever since I discoverd the Y-mail collection by YSL, I fell in love. The address and mail theme is so different and both stylish and classic at the same time.This collection presents a creative twist that I had never seen on any other designer bags, and I knew that I had to own a piece of Y-Mail! And recently, I was fortunate to come across exactly what I was looking for at a discounted price. I was able to score the Continental Zip Wallet in gorgeous black patent leather over at Bluefly.

    I first came across the wallet in silver over at Bluefly, which happened to be gone the next day when I went to order it. Then it popped up on their site again, only this time it was in gold. But after chatting with a sales rep online, I was directed to the black one, which is what I initially wanted anyway. And I must say that I am totally happy with the black version! Black is classic, timeless, and also, a few of the girls over at tBF pointed out that the lettering details stand out so much more on the black, which is especially true in person. This wallet looks so much better than I expected and I was amazed as soon as I took it out of it's dustbag.

    The YSL Continental Wallet in black patent leather features glossy, soft, and slightly textured leather with a lovely address written on the front. The black patent leather and gold combo make this wallet very elegant, classy and even a little fancy! The greatest detail, of course, is the beautiful and vibrant gold lettering used for the address. It looks amazing in real life! Here is an up close picture:


    The interior is very roomy with 12 credit card slots, two compartments, and a middle zippered section for change. My checkbook fits nicely in one of the slots. Also, the change pocket is big enough so there isn't a bulge poking through the wallet. When I use this as a clutch, I could even fit my cell inside! And it's not too heavy like some wallets can be, which is a plus. Here is a picture of the inside with all of my cards, cash, change, and checkbook:


    Lastly, I purchased this for $340, and I believe it retails for about $100 more or so. I think I got a great deal on it and I'm very thrilled to be it's new owner! I can't wait to pull it out to pay for something because I know people will be wondering what the lettering is and who it's by. It's definitely a unique piece I'll have forever!

    Last time I checked, it was sold out at Bluefly, but keep checking back because it might pop back up.

    My FB bag is patent. It's not hard to take care of at all...it just gets fingerprints and stuff on it that shows up pretty good.
