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.

LOVE THIS WALLET
I'm not sure what all the negative reviews are about. I've owned a few Vera Bradley wallets (various styles) in the past.. all made from fabric, and not the PVC... Although I love their products, they get dirty quickly and the fabric wears easily with daily use.
I bought this wallet in the Ziggy Zags PVC. (I've had it for about 6 weeks)
It's comfortable to hold, doesn't feel cheap to me, and can WIPE CLEAN if you need to. It's lightly textured so kinda 'faux leathery' I guess. I think for a wallet which is used so often, it's much better than the fabric options.
Then, on to the accordion wallet itself - It's great. There are multiple card slots on both sides of the wallet. Behind the card slots on either side is a pocket for bills or coupons etc. There is an ID window for your drivers license and a zippered coin compartment in the center.
I keep my cash, ID and regularly used cards on one side, with my infrequently used cards, receipts and coupons on the other side.
To make it just that much better, It is big enough without being too big, that I can also slip my phone (iphone 6 with an Apple brand silicone cover on) inside too, and it still comfortably zippers closed. It's all I need on the go.
I do have two 'complaints'.. though I guess they're more of suggestions.
1) I would love to see a greater selection of color options in the PVC. It's kinda slim pickings right now.
2) A metal ring with the option to attach a wristlet strap would be FANTASTIC. It would make it just perfect for on the go to hold my cards, cash and phone.
Overall I think this is a great wallet. I think it will last longer than my past fabric kinds, and look better for longer. It's functional without being too big. I love it.

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.
