WIW: To show off new Fossil handbag

I have the day off work today to help my MIL finish cleaning the old house and hand over the keys to the new owners. Imagine my delight when we got back home and my son handed me this lovely box - the new Fossil handbag that dear sweet Natalie (Goldenpig) helped me get.

I quickly changed out of my dirty shorts and tee and popped on my Gap BF jeans, hi-lo F21 tee, snakeskin belt and Doc Danielle animal print shoes so that the handbag could be showcased properly.

I'm in love with this handbag - the two-tone leather and vintage inspired shape is gorgeous - Natalie I can't thank you enough!!!

Jeans: Gap Sexy BF
Tee: F21 (thrifted)
Belt: Olsen Europe (thrifted0
Shoes: Doc Danielle's
Handbag: Fossil

    Look at that advanced pattern mixing! So impressed by your outfit styling abilities.

    The bag is nice too. :)

  • goldenpig replied 7 years ago

    Yay!!! Clapping hands in delight! Welcome to the Fossil fan club!
    That bag is so pretty and I'm so glad I was able to help! It's perfect for your vintagey style! Love your pattern mixed outfit!

    Love the way everything works together here especially the shoes, top and bag with different patterns. It's 3x pattern mixing vs the usual 2x and it works! (Flowers, leopard & colorblocking -- so on trend!!)

    Gorgeous bag - and great outfit! I love it when my clothing/accessories have a "story" - such a nice memory to reflect on everytime you reach for your bag.

  • Zapotee replied 7 years ago

    Totally awesome bag and baggy britches :)

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Well, HELLO, advanced pattern-mixer! Is that two animal prints, a floral, and a colorblocked bag? Awesome.

    I love how the bag and top keep the feminine/ladylike part of your style represented next to the boyfriend jeans. The new Fossil is going to go with so many things in your closet - I can feel it!

    YAY! I love the Fossil satchel. I've been eyeing it myself for a while. You look great.

    I love the bag, and the outfit!

    I am finally ready to drop some cash on a great everyday bag, and I know the features I need (must be capable of being worn cross-body, have at least one external pocket, and be fairly large), but I cannot figure out what color or style is "me". Getting tired of the endless browsing.

    Wow!! I really love this outfit Shannon! It might be one of my favorites on you. The pattern mixing is perfect, such a pretty top on you. I love that the bag has big bold colorblocking but the colors that are used give it a grounding effect too. Very Fab!

    Lookit those big bad boyfriends --- what a great look!

    LOVE the pattern mixing and the concept of this outfit, Shannon! The new bag is KILLER.

    I would like to see the BF jeans rolled a little shorter, or a little longer because they aren't that tapered at the hems. That's me getting all pedantic about length again :(

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Thanks ladies - especially Natalie!

    Angie - thanks for the hem length advice. Still working on that. I think I'll roll these ones down one length since I hacked off two inches from the bottom of my size smaller ones and they can be the shorter version. Thanks again for your keen eyes!

    I think this is an amazing look. The shabby chic print of the top with the BF jeans and the animal print is genius. LOVE that bag too.

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Big hug to Natalie! Gorgeous bag and some seriously cool pattern mixing.

  • Kirti replied 7 years ago

    Gorgeous bag!

  • Jem replied 7 years ago

    I love your new bag! That's a great outfit you threw on, too!

  • ramya replied 7 years ago

    Isn't that bag awesome... It would fit with any outfit :)
