My Number One Purchase of 2016: the JCrew Coin Purse

// not sponsored

I am a certified shop-a-holic. Shopping is my therapy and while that’s not always a good thing…my closet does look really incredible! Before you start judging me (I feel you over there!), I went to art school for a reason, and that’s because I have an obsession with fabrics, colors, textures, color palettes, the whole package. So yes, I may shop a lot but I try to pick pieces that match with my personal aesthetic and I know I will use until they’re basically rags! That doesn’t always work out but I think I hit gold with one of my purchases in 2016, my JCrew Coin Purse in Italian Leather, and I love it so much that I’m crowning it my number one purchase of 2016!

My 2017 essentials – spot the JCrew gift card?

 

My Number One Purchase of 2016: the JCrew Coin Purse
I have had my eye on the SLG Key Pouch from Louis Vuitton for forever but let’s get real…at 23 years old, I can’t justify spending my car payment on a coin purse, it’s just not the “adult” decision to make. So I searched and searched for (and I kid you not) four months until I finally spotted the Coin Purse in Italian Leather from my old favorite, JCrew.

And it’s $29.50. Cha ching, goes my credit card!

I cannot recommend this enough. Out of everything I bought last year (besides my car and my college education) this is my most used, most loved item of the year. I paid an extra $10 for JCrew to monogram it and it’s fabulous. I can hold 5-6 cards which is basically the essentials for me. So now I don’t have to grab my big ol’ wallet for things like quick trips to the gas station or the grocery store which makes my life so much easier.
