    I'm making the jump from the 6 to the 6s Plus and I am wondering what you've all used for a wristlet or cross body over the last year..
    I'm looking for minimal. Phone, credit cards and receipts, cash.. keys can hang off the strap.
    Loved my Vera Bradley All in One for my 5 & 6. It's not gonna make it with the 6 Plus

    I'm saving up for a Kate Spade or Tory Burch wristlet! Just something that has a couple pockets and has enough space for my phone! But for not I'll probably carry a cross body I got from target for the time being :)

    I went with a Coach cross body - very slim that I use it as a wallet in my tote. Then for minimal carry, just grab it out of the tote. I also got a slim wallet (don't see it on Coach anymore) with outside slots for CC and zipper for money which fits in the cross body with the phone and my car key (which is huge in comparison to everything else.)

    Yeah that thread was just women's advice with 6 pluses in general! So would you prefer slots for cards or space for a small wallet? My problem is that my wallet now is a bit too big for a small purse but not big enough to hold my phone...but I love it too much not to use it!

    My VB All in One was perfect..2 zip sections, and the magnetic flap change purse part on the front where my phone fit. One side opens up to 8 card slots, and a bill section atop/ behind. then the other part has two accordion spots for my receipts, and a little zippered spot between a tiny pill box. It came with a cross body strap and a wristlet. Great for on the go, or easy to toss in the mama bag when I need everything in the house with me.
    I'd be very happy with the same thing sized up...
    I'm open to any and all suggestions!

    I came across these today and thought I would post just in case you find them appealing.

    https://www.etsy.com/shop/Bholsa?section_id=13185800&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1

    The person allows you to choose whether you want space for a case and you can add a keyring. There's also multiple options for outer color. I figured I could use that a lot of the time or throw it into a larger cross body bag if I need to.

    I'm also looking at different options so I'll post again if I come across anything else interesting!

    I have a coach wristlet that I carry along side with my 6 plus. Very minimalistic and carries plenty without becoming bulky. The phone technically could fit in there but I use my phone so often that it's not worth putting in there unless needed.

    Thank you .. This is on the idea of what I am looking for. A friend of mine is involved with Thirty One. I'm guessing she probably has one of everything at her house!
    I love the look of the Kate Spade on another thread too..the sleeve is cute, But wouldn't be enough.
    Thanks so much for the ideas!!

    They fit pluses too? I'm not a huge MK fan but that's probably what I would want. Other brands only make tech wallets for the 6.

    Yes, you have to get the Contential Tech, the other techs/wristlets won't fit.

    Fun thread, one of my wife's requirements is that a phone fits into her favorite LV wristlet :D

    I'm not a lady, but I'm shopping for one. Did you see the Vera Bradley Front Zip or the Vera Bradley Zip-Around?They're both a bit bigger.

    I just received my purse and LOVE it. I have back problems, so I wanted something minimal. It fits my phone, keys, wallet (I used one of those card holder types of wallets), chapstick, and still has room, but not a ton. It's light, cute, and well made.

    I also am using a pouch for my phone. I just ordered a new one, just because why not, and this is it:

    If you find a wallet big enough and it doesn't have a wristlet you can just buy a faux leather wrist strap from Amazon on something. That's what I did.

    A classmate has this in pink so I looked it up and I'm in love! They still have it in pink too and they're both discounted $30!!! I might end up getting one because it's exactly what I want and it's Kate Spade
    Available at Best Buy here!

    I really like that! I usually don't spend that much (I'm a poor graduate student:p) But I may have to splurge if I'm able to sell my old 5s

    Now that's cute. It looks like something I'd find on Etsy. Where did you get it?
