What if I just want to run to the store and only need my phone and credit card? Or I'm going to a concert and don't have to hold a purse the whole time or shove things into my pockets? Or I simply don't want to put a bag down on the floor of a restaurant or bathroom and cringe thinking of what germs it is sitting in? As far as I knew, there weren't really any other options.
And then I was introduced to SHOLDIT and was immediately captivated by the combination of fashion, versatility and hands-free possibilities in one stylish piece.
Whether folded into a clutch, worn around your neck as a scarf or draped across your body as a wrap, the SHOLDIT adapts to the form that fits you best. Plus, due to the zippered pockets, you'll always have a place to stash small belongings without having to think about carrying, losing or forgetting them.
Intrigued by the possibilities, I was eager to see the Black Olive (Signature Series) SHOLDIT in person to try out its many uses.
As promised, this SHOLDIT truly is a 3-in-1 product! It folds in on itself to become a clutch, complete with a sturdy zipper and plenty of space inside...
...but also unfolds easily to become a wrap or scarf.
As a wrap, it only takes a second to pull it across your body and use the strong elastic cinch to pull it tight to fit right to your body.
The cell phone pocket is down by the cinch, meaning it stays close to your side, and the larger compartment up higher is great for storage of all kinds of lightweight items.
While I'm not one to wear wraps too often, I do think that this is a cute option. On the other hand, I love scarves! Unsurprisingly, this has quickly been my favorite way to use the SHOLDIT and I foresee using this much more than a traditional scarf. Simply wrap it up and around your neck like a traditional infinity scarf...
...but with a secret handy storage compartment right within reach.
Unless using the SHOLDIT in the clutch form, I wouldn't recommend putting anything of substantial size or weight into it, as it results in a clunky feeling across your body or around your neck. However, I really love being able to slip a few dollars, a credit card, lip gloss, my phone, my small camera or more right inside without problem.
Available in eight different fashionable styles and colors, I really like the layered, scalloped look to the Black Olive (Signature Series). The detailing is eye-catching enough to give it dimension, while keeping a classic, simple look that goes with just about everything.
Whichever way you choose to wear the SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap, the result is a fashionable way to keep your valuables secure while taking advantage of being hands-free. With a retail price of $79, this makes a unique and creative gift (or to keep for yourself) as the ultimate accessory and alternative to carrying your essentials in a purse.
