Sleek and Chic Wallet
Great wallet, bad closure
I love this wallet, it's my favorite VB wallet as far as orginization, size and look. However it will not snap once it's full. If you do manage to snap it shut, it pops right back open. I hope they fix this problem because I'd really like it in another pattern but I won't repurchase it because of the snap.

The materials used for this wallet are a little different than I am used to with other VB wallets, so at first I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Then after loading it up with everything I could possibly need (several credit cards, several gift cards, cash, ID) I fell in love with the new Sleek and Chic Wallet. I can even fit my iPhone 4s in the center section if I want to use it as a clutch. The larger VB wallets are beautiful but the Turn Lock is a little too heavy for me and the slots in the Accordion are a little hard for me to get my cards out quickly. The Sleek and Chic works like a charm! The credit card slots and middle section are looser in construction so it is easy to access cards, etc. Also, it has a large, interior zippered coin compartment (rather than on the back) so everything (cards, cash and coins) is accessible at once. I think this style will be my new favorite! I am looking forward to it in more patterns (please!).

Lots of space!
I understand what other reviewers are saying about the front closure being very hard to snap shut - it is, but after you get the hang of it, it's really not that hard. For the amount of space you get within the wallet, I can definitely deal with it. There are SO. MANY. POCKETS. to put everything you need in it. I probably have 20 cards in my wallet (and yes, they're ALL necessary - ha) and I can see where others are having a struggle closing the wallet if they have more cards than I do, but once again, I can look past the one flaw of the wallet because it holds all of my things so nicely.
I have the Turn Lock Wallet as well, and I prefer this wallet over that one. This has all of my things together, where the TL has two separate compartments (a front portion where the lock is and a back accordion-style portion). This is much sleeker and a lot less bulkier than the TL - plus it has hints of leather (pleather?) that make it look color blocked, which gives it an extra pop of interest.
Honestly, this wallet is great, with the front closure being difficult to snap shut being its only flaw. Like I said before, that, to me, is its only flaw. The closure DOES snap, but it may take a couple of tries at first. I would recommend this to anyone and will most likely be repurchasing once the Fall 2014 patterns are released.

Like wallet, but think front closure should be either a magnet or move snap up to give a little more room.

Will not snap closed with cards and money in it.
I thought I would really like this wallet because of all the space for cards, but it has turned out to be one of the worse wallets I have had in a long time. After putting all the cards and money into the wallet the outside snap will not stay snapped. With the Flower Power came in the straps wallet, cause I would be exchanging it in a hurry.

Too small to hold lots of cards & money
Like so many other reviewers, I too have a hard time snapping the wallet closed. With so many reviews like this, I would think VB would have reacted by now and moved the snap more to the middle of the wallet or made it bigger or something to adjust it. I cannot fit all of my cards in the wallet and snap it shut so I ended up bying a coin purse and putting half my cards in there, which really isn't ideal. I can't say I'd purchase the same wallet again.

BETTER THAN THE EURO WALLET
Love this wallet. It holds all of my cards and Ids, etc and I have no problem snapping it closed. The cards are much easier to get out than with the Euro wallet and has more slots.
The only thing that would be great is to have 2 snaps like the Euro wallet has.
Love the leather like trim. Gives it a sophisticated look

This is my second VB wallet...and I love it. I do agree about it being hard to snap.....since it is still fairly new, I hope it gets better. I did rearrange a few cards on that side, and that helped. I like the fact that I do not have to go to 2 different sides to get what I want out of my wallet, I just open it up and there it is!

My sister suggested that I try this wallet. I bought it in Julip Tulip at first to match my city shoulder bag and I fell in love with it. It holds a lot of cards, my money, and my coins in the pouch. I haven't tried putting my phone in it, but I know if I needed to hold anything else in the wallet I could. What I like is even with the coin, the wallet doesn't get super heavy. It doesn't weigh down the purse or bulk out from the coins. Its a slim fitting wallet for any of the purses that need a slimmer wallet. I went and bought this in Clementine and Flutterby. I just love them.

Ideal for cash organization
This is a great wallet for cash organization while still keeping its slim silhouette. The set up is similar to the Snap Tab wallet (which I also have), but I like that this wallet is smaller and fits into small to medium-sized purses.
It's true that this wallet is hard to snap, but I usually just fold it closed and stash it in the large interior pocket of my purse. My only other complaint is that I have to use two hands to unzip the coin pocket because it is a bit flimsy in its design and the way that it is attached to the wallet.
I still am pleased with this product and would purchase it again in another color.
