It has been pouring in Gurgaon which is a rare phenomenon but I have been enjoying it so far. The only dampner is that it is raining when the sale season is in its full bloom. Nevertheless, I could not help myself but hop over the puddles and walk through the pot holes to get to the Forever New sale!!! No kidding, I have been waiting for this sale like forever!!
I love the brand. It is expensive no doubt, but the products are classy and the quality is phenomenal. Every time I wear a Forever New piece, I get compliments (and who does not love that?) But this time, I decided to go a little easy on my wallet and buy a couple of accessories that I have been eyeing for a long time (I still spent a lot, but not as much as I would have spent if I went clothes crazy.. you feel me!!).
The first piece is a beautiful black wallet. Officially sold as a phone case; but to me, it is nothing short of a stylish, compact yet convenient purse that holds my essentials very well.
Look on the outside: The outside looks extremely pretty with its quilted fabric that is dotted with gold studs. The golden zip that runs from end to end is very smooth. The branding on the front is in a lovely gold plate that says Forever New and honestly to me, the branding makes it look very expensive. The outside also has a detachable wristband for the ease of hold.
Look on the inside: It has a fawn beige interior that is very pretty, very subtle, looks pleasing to the eye. The side lining is a white dotted print, what can I say, I have a weakness for such cuteness!!
Compartments: This wallet/phone case has a lot of room. It has three pockets for bank cards, one decent sized compartment to hold a driver’s licence and some cash. The main/middle section designed for the phone, is lined in a super soft velvety fabric. The third compartment is to hold more cash (in case you got some left after shopping!!). The last one is a tighter pocket, lined with the same dotted cute fabric seen on the sides.
Use: Usually when I am running an errand, I grab my regular wallet and try to rush out, but in that case I need to carry my home keys and my cell phone in my hand which is very inconvenient. This wallet is a perfect solution to that problem. Cash, cards, licence, etc. fit well inside, including my iPhone 5 (which by the way fits in beautifully and does not get scratched). The keys get attached to the wristband oh so conveniently!! Plus the wallet looks so stylish. I feel it augments my style well which is simple yet elegant! 😉
Price: Rs 1800, sale price Rs 1075.
Verdict: It is worth every penny!! A must buy!!
My second purchase was a travel wallet (officially known as Mon Amor Travel Wallet), a stylish travel accessory one may call it!
Look on the outside: This wallet is essentially made of Polyurethane, which makes it incredibly durable. But the icing on the cake is its dreamy floral print! I am in love with it!! It is so gorgeous that I have no words to describe it, take a look at the pics. Isn’t it gorgeous? Anyways, moving on, the zip which is silver toned runs from end to end. The branding is in a silver plate, which looks pretty against the blue and purple backdrop. There is also a zip pocket in the front which has a satin lining.
Look on the inside: It is a gorgeous blue on the inside which is a pleasant surprise. The overall look inside is as pretty and rich as the exterior.
Compartments: It has innumerable pockets that can basically take care of all the travel documents (specially if you are travelling abroad). It also has a zip pouch for currency, a pen holder and also a mirror! Additionally there is one more zip pocket at the back.
Use: A stylish option to carry while travelling. It holds passports, travel docs, money, traveler’s cheques, immigration slips very conveniently. I usually travel with my husband and therefore I also carry his passport with mine along with all the documents and therefore end up having multiple pouches in my purse. But this wallet is so perfect, it is compact, sleek and has a lot of room for all the essentials you can think of.
Price: Rs 2200, sale price Rs 1315
Verdict: Gorgeous piece, if you love organising your travel essentials then this is a great option.
Availability: I purchased the black wallet (phone case) from Forever New Galleria, Gurgaon and the travel wallet from Ambience, Gurgaon. But you can also check out Forever New’s website for more options here. The sale is still on, so make the most of it!!
