You?re on your way to meet friends at the Gold Coast?s new pasta hot spot and suddenly traffic stops on Lake Shore Drive. You whip out your phone to text your new ETA, and...what?! Just 10 percent battery life remaining? How will you Instagram your dinner? What if you need an Uber at the end of the night? ??
When you carry the Everpurse wristlet, dead-phone anxiety becomes a thing of the past. The chic, surprisingly roomy clutch has a built-in phone charger.
The wristlet ($245 to $295) is now available at Lincoln Park?s Laudi Vidni, and you can choose from among dozens of soft, colorful leather, trim, hardware and lining materials--meaning you can design the exact accessory of your dreams. (Add a cross-body strap for $30.)
??Leave the wristlet on its magnetic charging mat for six hours, and the resulting charge lasts for two weeks and will take your iPhone or Galaxy from dead to 100 percent--twice.
And fear not, tech fanatics. If you switch to a newer phone, Laudi Vidni will update your bag for $42. (Allow four weeks for custom wristlets to be made at the Everpurse factory in Skokie. A few ready-to-wear styles are for sale in-store.)
What a relief: You?ll never miss another chance to show off your squid-ink bucatini to the world. ??
