My SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap Purse is Ready for Departure from SRQ

Here’s a confession, when traveling I usually feel like I’m part of the Grapes of Wrath, carrying as much with me as possible within as little luggage as possible. The SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap Purse is a solution to my desire [anxiety?] for keeping my important documents safely within reach at all times. This is especially essential when exploring suspect areas and worrying about being pick pocketed or having my purse stolen.

One of my essential travel accessories is a pashmina, primarily because it keeps me warm on the plane and when traveling to cooler climes, it’s quite fashionable while keeping me warm when out and about.

Functional, Fashionable, Stylish and Secure
Move over pashmina, here’s the SHOLDIT! It looks like an infinity scarf but it’s more. It contains two hidden pockets ideal for securely tucking away important travel documents and other travel essentials. SHOLDIT recently sent me a sample so I could give it a try. I’m a little uncertain in all the ways to wear it but I found it functional and fashionable while combining stylishness with security.

Putting SHOLDIT to the Travel Test
I recently traveled to Atlanta and inside my SHOLDIT I packed:

  • Passport (I know you don’t need one for Georgia, I wanted to make sure it was capable of holding one.)
  • Lip balm
  • Sunglasses (My most important fashion accessory.)
  • iPhone
  • Pack of Gum (Was dealing with ear issues from so much traveling.)

When I reached security I just took off my SHOLDIT, threw it in the bin and away it went through the X-ray machine. I picked it – and my bag – on the other end, tossed it over my neck and away I went. Easy-peasy.

Although I think I’ll remember where I pack things in my carry-on bag, I can never find them when I need them. Tossing the essentials in the SHOLDIT made it easy to keep track of what I needed during the flight. Since I didn’t bring a pashmina, I used this infinity scarf to keep me warm.

Feeling Secure with SHOLDIT
Atlanta was living up to its HOT-lanta nickname upon landing but I spied others wearing fashionable scarves so I decided to keep the SHOLDIT on. I added a MARTA Breeze Card into the scarf and my anxiety calmed knowing my most important items were secure and close. I have to admit, it was a little weird having my hands free because I didn’t need to clutch anything.

When travel leads me down those sketchy paths, I’d feel safer having my important documents and cash in a SHOLDIT rather than a purse because I doubt anyone would know that’s where my valuables are hiding.

More than Just a Travel Accessory
In addition to using during my travels, I can see where the SHOLDIT Clutch Wrap purse would be useful when going out and not having pockets in an outfit or big purse. It would be useful while attending a concert, festival or other social event because I wouldn’t need to worry about where to put my valuables, they’d be stylishly on me yet hidden. It folds up into its own pouch with some room to hold small items.

Visit www.SHOLDIT.com for additional information or purchase the SHOLDIT on Amazon. Prices vary between $49 – $79 with periodic sales. Available colors range from neutral to bold to patterned. SHOLDITs can also be customized, wouldn’t that be fun for a girlfriend getaway, bachelorette party or reunion?

What do you think of the SHOLDIT, would you wear one?
