FIVE SMALL LEATHER GOODS YOU NEED

13 Mar

A little less than two years ago I made a post stating the five types of bags you need . Today I discuss five SLG’s (small leather goods) as they are referred to in the luxury community that if you have will round out your bags and accessories collection. As always, this is by no means an exhaustive list, just a guide to help you pick your smaller goods. Also, this is my opinion and something I consider a staple you may not ever see the need for or vice versa and that’s okay.

So, first matter of business: “What IS an SLG exactly?” Well, as the name states it is a small leather good and that means anything that is not considered a handbag or luggage; items that are usually smaller than those . Secondly, let’s address the elephant in the room: NO, a “small leather good” doesn’t need to be made of actual leather. It can be made of vegan leather, coated canvas and numerous other fabrics so if you don’t want to use animal based products or can’t fit leather items into your budget right now you can still form your SLG collection.

The last thing I want to mention is something you’ll notice in the pics I’ve used. Everything has colour (primarily pink). Now I am 110% a black bag kind of girl because it goes with everything but I feel that with these smaller items you can really explore colour and patterns even if your larger pieces are more neutral.

So, let’s begin:

  1. COIN PURSE


Coin Pouch by FOSSIL $38 US

A coin purse is perfect for holding small but bulky things that jingle: coins (of course), keys and small cosmetic items like lip balm.

2. CARD HOLDER



Fleming Stud Slim Card Case by Tory Burch in Shell Pink $138 US

This is an absolute MUST for me. A card case holds all those cards we seem to have these days but because its so slim it can fit into even the smallest of bags. I often use a card case instead of a wallet whenever I’m on vacation carrying around smaller bags.

3. POUCH

Stella Logo Pouch in pink by Stella McCartney $365

A pouch, sometimes called a toiletry pouch or clutch is something I consider a cross over item because of it’s versatility. One of these bad girls can be used as an evening bag one day then filled up with cosmetic items and tossed into your handbag the following morning. I have also been known to use pouches as pencil cases or to pack small clothing items when traveling.

FUN FACT: Stella McCartney (design brand whose pouch is featured here) is a Vegetarian brand using Alter-Nappa and Polyurethane to produce their leather like items

4. WALLET

Le Foulonne zip around wallet by Longchamp in pink $295US

I’m sure I don’t need to explain why you need a wallet, lol, but for clarity purposes; a wallet is your home base for smaller accessory pieces. You keep your bills, some coins and all your cards there for everyday use.

5. WRISTLET

Clutch Wristlet by Coach in Fuschia and Pewter $195US

For me, a wristlet is that final piece of the SLG puzzle. I think every single use of a wristlet can be interchanged with one of the other pieces already listed: you can keep cards in it, small cosmetic items, keys etc. But that’s just it, it can be a bit of a work horse serving multiple purposes plus the added benefit of being compact and able to be hooked around the wrist for a true hands free experience.

So those are the SLGs or small accessories I think you need in your collection. Which pieces do you already have and is there anything different you would have chosen?

Thanks for reading an have an awesome day!
