I usually go for black in purses and wallets that will work with everything, but had seen this Anuschka wallet and thought that I probably wouldn't feel comfortable with a purse that bright, but the wallet would be a special treat. When I received it, I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. I love it. I can't wait to pull it out of my purse and I literally get compliments EVERY SINGLE TIME I pull it out. Seems really well made. Exceeds my expectations.
