I just got back from Vegas and I wanted to share my new purchase. I had decided that this fall I would not buy an expensive purse. I have other areas that I need to spend my $$ on so I set a limit of $150. I love patent leather and I have been looking everywhere for patent leather bag that was under or around $150. Anyway I have been looking at home and I looked in Vegas and all I could find were either over my budget or PVC. Until I wandered into the fossil store and found this bag. Only instead of black I bought in in a dark green with gold hardware. I love the bag and its real leather and it was somewhat in my budget. I just had to share my excitement. I have another fossil bag that I bough at an outlet store last year and I really love it. I would have never thought about buying bags from them...what do you guys think of the brand?
