You may be thinking, "What would I do with a cigarette case?" MoS Washington had a brilliant idea (or rather, saw someone else with a brilliant idea last year and decided to follow suit). Coincidentally, cigarette cases just happen to be the exact same size as one thing that today's chic women do carry around- credit cards! A cigarette case fits about 5 or 6 cards comfortably, which is perfect when carrying a clutch or small bag. And the good news is that now eBay is chock full of them! There is a huge range in prices- but you can find sterling ones for anywhere between $50 and $3,000.
MoS Washington recently purchased her fabulous antique silver case from eBay for a song. It even has her own initials on it! It is the perfect size for holding an ID, credit cards, and some cash- all you need for evening when you don't want to lug around a big wallet. The cases are much flatter than we expected, so they really will fit into any bag. Her pretty card case even attracted the attention of someone at another table at dinner Saturday night!
Here are a few pretty cases we found on eBay. But go look for yourself! You might even find one with your own initials on it! And we can't think of a more stylish way to carry your cards!
Isn't this filigree pattern just stunning?!
We love the art deco style of this case!
If you love monograms, how pretty is this case? Even if it isn't your monogram, we think antique or vintage pieces with monograms are just so chic!
