Above is the image posted on the Proenza Schouler website of the Lux Wallet in Evergreen. When I hear the word wallet, I expect certain things such as maybe a zipper or some card holders, so I was a bit disappointed to find that this was more like a pouch or mini clutch inside.
There is only the one compartment, so I wouldn't call this a wallet at all. Despite that, it's still pretty cute. The green was really difficult to photograph. It definitely looked lighter in real life than in the web photo.
You can see that the shade changes drastically in the photos I took, depending on the where I was standing when I took them. The most accurate representation of color would be the middle photo, but it's still tricky in that from certain angles the "wallet" looks green, teal, or even blue.
I still really like the overall look, though, It looks and feels like something that will look even better when it gets all beat up with usage.
I just took a quick look at the website to check out the description and it looks like the only color left is pink.
