New Accordion Wallet in PVC
I had planned to buy this wallet online, but after reading the previous reviews, I decided to go to my local store and decide my opinion on the product for myself. I ended up buying this wallet in Petal Paisley, and I like the new PVC texture. I like how it feels, I like how it looks, and I think that the outside pattern will hold up longer because it is not made in the traditional fabric, but I noticed a discrepancy with the online product compared to the one in the store. The one in the store has an inside color of bright pink, not black, which is how it is pictured in the example above. I would recommend to anyone that is thinking of buying this product, or any other Vera Bradley product, to go and see what it looks like in the store. I have found that patterns look different in the store than they do online. Originally, I was planning to buy this wallet in Flower Shower, but once I went and looked at the pattern in the store, I decided to chose the Petal Paisley pattern instead because I liked it a lot better than the other pattern offered.

Poor makeover of the accordion wallet
I am very dissatisfied with this new type of accordion wallet. I have several of the cloth type and really like them. I like the divisions in the cloth wallet much better. There is more space to separate items. I do not like the interior of this wallet. It is much tackier looking, not what I've been accustomed to from VB. I like to match my wallet and purse, Unfortunately, this time the quality of the wallet is significantly inferior.

Product is cheapened - made with PVC (plastic)
I also don't like the new PVC material nor the redesign of the accordian wallet. There are less separations inside and it just looks cheaper, as well as being made more cheaply. Plus, PVC puts off toxins.
I loved the original accordian wallet style, but won't be purchasing one again unless the old style is brought back in fabric.
Sometimes old is better!
