How to Buy the Right Wallet

I don’t know about you but I USED to struggle with finding the perfect wallet…. I would find one I thought I liked and then BAM, it wasn’t right.  here are some tips on how to buy the best wallet for you this season.  There are so many things to consider – the number of slots for cards, yah or nah on a coin purse, and will it fit my phone.  There are zillions (okay, so it may be an exaggeration) of wallets out there with just as many features, styles, colors and sizes.

What is a girl to do?

Thirty-One to the rescue! Here is a fun quiz to guide you toward which type of wallet best fits your needs – and your style.

#1 Which word best describes your personal style?

  1. Casual
  2. On-trend
  3. Classic

#2 Be honest: How much stuff does your wallet need to hold?

  1. Just my ID, credit cards and cash.
  2. Just essential cards – and my phone, of course!
  3. Umm…just call me George Costanza.

#3 How do you plan to wear your wallet?

  1. Tucked into my purse (although a wristlet option would be nice)
  2. Crossbody to stand in for a purse and keep my hands free
  3. In my bag during the day, then as a sleek evening clutch

#4 Now let’s talk prints and colors:

  1. Make mine easy-care fabric in my favorite Thirty-One print.
  2. This is tough: I love Thirty-One’s prints AND their faux leather.
  3. Let’s go all out with pebbled faux leather and silver-tone hardware.

#5 Do you want the option to personalize your wallet?

  1. I could go either way on embroidery.
  2. My initial or monogram would be nice.
  3. My look already has PLENTY of personality!

#6 What’s your budget?

  1. Under $30. But I still expect great function and style!
  2. Under $40. So I’ll need it to be even more versatile than a typical wallet.
  3. Under $50. This is an investment in quality I’ll use season after season.

Mostly 1s: Perfect Cents Wallet

This classic, budget-friendly wallet in plenty of print choices is just the right wallet for you to buy!  It may be small in size but it is big on functionality.   The Perfect Cents Wallet features a zipper closure, roomy front and back zipper pockets, 10 credit card slots, four bill slots and an ID window. Made of canvas or cotton in some of our top Thirty-One prints with a polyester lining, this billfold makes a great companion piece for our coordinating totes and purses – or wear it alone as a fun clutch by adding a colorful Wristlet Strap.

Mostly 2s: NEW! Call Me Crossbody

Millennials know a thing or two about minimalism – it’s why you see so many sporting chic, simple crossbody wallets! You don’t need to buy a big purse to stay organized (and stylish) on the go: Choose our Call Me Crossbody wallet for hands-free fashion which is super functional. With credit card slots, an open center compartment for your smart phone and keys along with a magnetic snap closure to keep everything secure, your everyday essentials stay right at your fingertips. The detachable faux leather strap adjusts to wear over your shoulder or as a crossbody. Make your wallet special with embroidered personalization!

Mostly 3s: All About the Benjamins Wallet

It’s our #1-selling wallet for so many reasons! Our Customer-favorite fashion wallet is the perfect choice: tuck it into your handbag or add a Wristlet Strap for carrying all the essentials. The roomy All About the Benjamins has the silhouette of a classic billfold and holds 12 credit cards, with reinforced stitching and interior structure to prevent stretching. Choose from sophisticated solids to coordinate with your purse or tote – or share the fun of Thirty-One for the opportunity to shop exclusive Benjamins in our famous prints!

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

November’s Top 5 Solutions

November is here!  What does that mean?  You started making a list of the things that need to be done for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  You have already started to stress about there not being enough hours in the day or week, right? So the thought of hosting a Thirty One Girl’s Night is just another stressor, right?  What if I could give you some reasons why it would make YOUR holidays so much better?

You get this entire hostess bundle with FREE embroidery on all 3 items for $35 when you collect just $200 in orders!! You can knock out THREE Christmas gifts just by collecting a few orders from your friends and family!!


Our new HOLIDAY shopping list is chock full of gift giving ideas for your friends and family!  Do you know someone who can NEVER find their name on things?  Guess what?  We can solve that with a personalized gift to show them that you were thinking of them.


How boring is it to put a gift card in an envelope?  It seems impersonal, like you didn’t put much thought into it.  The truth is, gift cards are one of the TOP gifts during the holidays.  How many of YOUR friends give gift cards for the holidays?  We have lots of options but my favorite is the Letters from London.


This is the perfect gift to put a GIFT CARD in!  I attach mine to my Thirty One Key FOB when I am out and about.  It is the perfect size for my driver’s license and my debit card.  What more does a girl need, right? So why not help your friends with their holiday gift giving while you can earn YOUR Christmas gifts for FREE.



Would you rather have a few friends gathered in your living room (or at a local restaurant). Laughing. Talking. No kids. No significant other. Light music plays in the background. There are some cute products on display. You feel like you are getting a private showing in a small boutique. When the night is done, you feel refreshed and energized.

Or would you prefer this?

September is for Redeem-Her

31 gives

Happy Saturday!  For many this is a LONG weekend as we celebrate Labor Day.  For some it is the last taste of summer – either the kids have already gone back to school or they head back this week.  I have to be honest – growing up on the Jersey shore, I longed for this weekend.  It meant the return to normalcy or at least a little less traffic and a few less shoobies.


I am excited to announce that this month is dedicated to Redeem-Her.  I will write them a check for 10% of my total sales for the month, including fundraisers.  So it is a double win for the fundraising group AND Redeem-Her.  I am inspired by the work that they are doing in making a difference in the lives of women who others have given up on.

Redeem-Her successfully transitions women recently released from prison,jail and drug rebab to become valued and contributing members of society.

Redeem-Her, a non-profit organization founded and operated by formerly incarcerated women, provides a safe, sober, supportive environment that is enhanced by positive role models who meet the tangible needs of clients.

Redeem-Her employs a model emphasizing that positive opportunities can transform the lives of women to become responsible, generous members of society.

So, how can you help?  Check out Thirty One’s September Hostess and Customer special. There are THREE opportunities in September to help this AWESOME cause:

Want to be a hostess?
