Review: The Miss Vara Wallet Clutch by Salvatore Ferragamo
If you want to treat yourself to a wallet costing north of $500, make it the double-duty Miss Vara wallet clutch by Salvatore Ferragamo. This delicate but hardworking little number is one of the best-value buys you can make for your closet because it is literally is two items in one. Need a small cross body clutch to match you little black cocktail dress? Check. Need a serious wallet that fits all your cards and more? Simply remove the chain and toss this in your bag.
What is the Size of the Miss Vara Clutch Wallet?
The Miss Vara is 5.5 inches (14cm) high, with a length of 7.5 inches (19cm) and a depth of 1.5 inches (4cm). The strap drop is 22 inches (56cm). it can comfortably fit a lipstick, a compact, your keys, a pen, and your iPhone plus your little Moleskin notebook. It’s really quite surprising how much this petite wallet clutch can carry. And we’ve noticed that it’s impossible to stretch out. The sturdy saffiano leather remains structured and polished no matter how much stuff you cram into it.
The fold-over top opens to a spacious interior with a snap-flap pocket, 7 card slots, 2 bill slots, and a slim back pocket. We love the removable cross-body chain strap and the signature Ferragamo grosgrain bow in front, of course.
The Perfect Bag Within a Bag
I personally use this bag as a wallet and phone holder, tossing it into my bigger everyday handbag which contains all my other essentials. If I suddenly need to do the groceries or go out to lunch with a colleague, I ditch my big bag and whip this out.
Take It On Your Travels
The Miss Vara wallet clutch is also the perfect travel companion. I use it to hold my passport, travel documents, my phone, and my money. Wear it across your body to keep your hands free as you go through immigration. It’s dressy enough for a nice dinner out in Paris and light enough for more casual strolls around town.
