On the subject of handbags, fossil?

Hot off the heels of the radley thread are fossil considered naff or fashionable ? i'd love a mulberry but overpriced IMO. Bear in mind I don't consider myself fashionable, have several radley bags (which I think are slightly naff but excellent practically), but am "only" 38 so don't want to stray into middle aged territory just yet.

There is a bag I want, so waiting for the mumsnet jury. Will try and post a link!

Bloody LOVE Fossil. Beautiful, decent quality... Great. Have a pale blue Harper waiting to be unwrapped on Sunday.

I really don't like Radley if that helps?

And that bag you linked to is lovely. Great colour.

I love fossil

I dislike Radley but have a Fossil bag and I frequently get positive comments on it. More than any other bag I've had actually.

SaltySeaBird Wed 21-Dec-16 09:09:00

I'm 39 if that helps, I'm eyeing up the one you linked now, love the colour!

I was sorely tempted by a couple of lovely Fossil bags in the onboard shop when we did our cruise in September but sat on hands and didn't buy (polishes halo!). Never really looked at them before, but they were lovely quality and were really reasonable, even without the onboard discount. Definitely a brand to look for next time.

PS. Love the one you are looking at OP!

thanks everyone. Have found a good deal on it (was waiting until after Christmas if need be) and have sent the link to my dp who has been waiting on instructions on which one to buy! Excited!!!!!

I absolutely love fossil handbags. There is always a brilliant deal to be had in their outlet stores too.

The only fossil bag I had, the leather peeled off the strap, so I wasn't overly impressed. The bag itself was lovely though.

I like this one
I don't actually work for Coach, although I always seem to be recommending them on here smile

Oh god Aderyn, why did you have to make me click on that link and check out the Coach sale!
I'm in love with the Scout Hobo in Oxblood. I have a coach bag and purse already and the quality is excellent, amazing for these prices.

I have a Fossil bag and it still looks pristine after 2 years daily use. i would definitely recommend them.

PNGirl Wed 21-Dec-16 16:04:52

Love Fossil. I have a Preston Flap in burgundy which is my favourite, a Julia perforated leather satchel in tan, and a Mimi satchel in black and white stripe.

I like Fossil bags and walleta.

And I really like their men's bags... smile

I had a fantsatic tan leather fossile bag, like a saddle-bag style. I used it every single day for three years and it still looked exactly the same (although the lining got ripped eventually), I only replaced it because I needed a bigger bag but it was brilliant quality and only about £100.

Maidupmum Wed 21-Dec-16 16:50:53

I love Fossil. Are you anywhere near Cheshire Oaks? Their outlet store there has a really good sale on already x

lilapril Wed 21-Dec-16 17:06:02

I dunno if I'm trendy or not hmm but I'm not middle aged (am 30) grin and I love fossil. A lot of my friends have them. IME they are good quality / stay looking good too

ChickenVindaloo2 Wed 21-Dec-16 20:17:46

I had never heard of them but liked the one I bought in John Lewis - leather, seaweed blue-green colour. Am very pleased with it.

I'm 33 and aim for a sort of feminine elegant look. Like a blonde Kate Middleton. But fatter, obvs.

Aderyn2016 Wed 21-Dec-16 20:45:55

Sorry lady.--I think you should buy it--

ChishandFips33 Wed 21-Dec-16 22:25:08

Love Fossil!

I have a few - new and second hand and they are all immaculate and hard wearing - you won't be disappointed

ChishandFips33 Wed 21-Dec-16 22:33:24

I like this colour too

ilovecherries Wed 21-Dec-16 23:12:06

ladyratterley, I'm getting the oxblood hobo for Xmas from my mum and dad. They are having it sent direct, so I am feverishly checking its progress.

CointreauVersial Wed 21-Dec-16 23:41:15

And I'm getting the navy Scout Hobo for my birthday. grin
