Cute Handbag, Works Well if You Like a Slightly Slouchy Look
on December 26, 2014
Great little handbag, made of nice, supple leather! I also really appreciate that Fossil was smart enough to sew in side panels so when you unzip the bag all the way down, your items don't spill out. I also like the nice fabric liner, it's substantial and not silky, it's also the same color as the bag so you can actually see what's inside. The shoulder strap is adjustable and even though I'm on the short side, there is an abundance of length so a taller women would be able to use it.
This bag losses a star for the handles and the slouchy bottom. The handles are just a bit too small. You can't easily fit your hand through it to carry on your arm, and when it's on your arm it's a bit uncomfortable. It's really meant to be carried by hand making it a bit cumbersome when you need both hands otherwise you need to fuss with having the shoulder strap dangling about you so you can throw it onto your shoulder. Regarding the slouchy bottom, Fossil should have put a something extra in the bottom of the bag to keep it from sagging (yes, a petty personal peeve of mine). The bag has feet and an extra layer of leather, but it still sags giving it an unstructured look.
