honestly, while I love Kate Spade leather goods, a zip around wallet is just a nuisance. When I want to get to my credit cards or cash quickly, the last thing I want to do is fumble with a zipper. True, it's trendy now to have zippers on wallets but frankly, it is just annoying when I'm holding a purse or tote and have to unzip the wallet with two hands. It really isn't Kate Spade's fault but almost ALL of her designs right now are zip, or so small you can't fit much into them. I miss her larger French Flap style wallets that were big enough to stuff credits cards, cash and change into them but you could open the flat keeping the credit cards inside with one hand because it was a SNAP! and it was still secure.
