Wedges are the perfect way to add height in order to make an outfit look better while staying comfortable. Due to the platform of wedges, these shoes can provide more stability than a heel and are a great casual shoe to wear when hanging out with friends in the summer heat.

Coin Purses

Coins are especially hard to keep track of because they will often end up at the very bottom of a bag, never to be used or looked at again.
