Enter our Fossil Vintage Revival Pinterest Contest!

This post brought to you by Fossil. All opinions are 100% mine.

It all started with the desire for the perfect vintage-inspired bag. It had to be classic, of course, but remarkable in its design. With this in mind, Fossil created the Vintage Revival collection. Crafted from hand-burnished Heirloom leather (the richest, most coveted leather to date), this collection draws inspiration from the iconic vintage silhouettes and styling details of the past to create a timeless look that transcends the ages in an intense way. This fall, Fossil updated all of their favorite and best-selling styles in an exotic crocodile-embossed leather, stunning giraffe-printed hair calf, and rich colors, like spruce green and a warm rust color.

We know you'll adore Fossil Vintage Revival Handbags

The covetable details include the timeless design, heirloom leather and the gorgeous Fall colors like soft yellow, rust, pecan, spruce green and giraffe hair calf.

The Vintage Revival Collection pays homage to the iconic vintage silhouettes of the past with a timeless design and impeccable detailing that gets more remarkable as the years go by. Coupled with their new, exclusive Heirloom variety of leather, this collection exceeds all expectation with a stunning, variegated finish and a level of quality you just can’t grasp until you feel it for yourself.


I can think of so many outfits I could pair with these gorgeous bags. I think my favorite is the Small Flap Handbag that comes in red, navy, brown and my favorite… the Metallic embossed leather. Here are three outfits I would wear with this gorgeous bag…


French Bulldog Sweater Set Outfit

Moto Jacket & Polka Dot Sweater Blouse

Note to self…must get a bright colored clutch for spring… Which I’ll do after I figure out how to incorporate white (which I guess is the new black) into my practical wardrobe.  Although something tells me that the brightly colored clutch will get more wear time than a white frock, but whatever…these looks are beautiful and unique and something to strive for.

The Fashionable Team wants to know…do you wear white?  Is it a staple of your wardrobe?  (And we don’t mean just T-shirts!)  Leave us a comment and let us know…
