Pros: Beautiful, soft leather. Great quality.
Cons: price and heavy hardware
I think it was about 10 years ago that I first really became Aware of the Fossil name brand. My step sister was very into Fossil jewerly. That is when I first fell in love with Fossil handbags. Lucky for me, and not lucky for our bank account, I work at a store that sells Fossil products. That is where i first got my Fossil Modern Cargo Organizer Handbag in black. What really drew me to this handbag is how soft and supple the leather. It is buttery smooth. And has a awesome leather smell to it!
The dimensions of the bag are 13-1/2" x 11" H x 2-1/2" W and it has a crossbody type strap that drops to 22 inches.
The hardware on the outside of the handbag is goldtone metal. It consists of four circles attaching the straps to the handbag, the signature Fossil Key and a Fossil Keypad. The zipper pull tag is also a Fossil key.
The front og the handbag has a pocket that is perfect for stashing things that you may need to grab right away.
The main portion of the purse is lined with a black sateen material with a black flower design and the word Fossil in each flower. There is also a leather patch that says Fossil and Long live vintage. There is an interior zipper pocket as well as a cell phone pocket.
On the back of the purse, on the outside there is a zipper compartment that hide an organizer. It has slots for 5 credit cards. It is the perfect compartment to keep your check book in also.
I love the design of this handbag. The crossbody design makes it perfect for everyday use and when you are shopping and don't want to tie up your hands carrying a handbag. There are plenty of pockets and compartments to keep all of your items neat and organized and still look fashionable!
This is a great quality leather hand bag! My only real issue is that the hardware on the outside of the handbag really weighs it down before you even put anything in it. And with the Key and the keypad hardware you make a bit of a clanging sound while walking.
But all and all this is a great quality handbag. And in true Fossil fashion it is very well made and sure to bring you many years of happiness!
