I was sitting on the curb in The Haight wishing I could sink into the ground and disappear for like ever because I had just been carded and turned away from the coolest club in the city. The guy who had driven me and his friends over the Golden Gate Bridge, excited to be going to the coolest club in the city only to have me turned away at the door and kind of ruining their night–he sat down next to me and said, “Hey we’ve all been there. And you’re going to be 21 one day and you’ll wish you were still being thrown out of places for being underage.” Truer words were never spoken.
I haven’t been carded for awhile but at least I have a good place to keep my cards these days. The humble credit card holder is probably the most feted bag of the season. A variety of slim wallet possibilities are showing up everywhere from T Magazine to The Wall Street Journal Gift Guide (ranging in price from $195 to $710). We introduced our first credit card holder ($125-$170) earlier this year by request of the guys. However, ladies this is a great organizer to carry inside your wallet or clutch. Best of all, these luxe little stingray and leopard credit card holders are still the most affordable option of all the luxury brands popping up in gift-giving roundups.
P.S. Were you ever carded? Or were you one of those cool kids who knew how to rock a fake ID?
