Just recently I was invited to Fossil’s Very Merry Celebration at their Fifth Ave retail location and had the opportunity to shop the store with a gift card from Fossil (thank you!).. Which was pretty neat because I’ve had my eye on a couple of things but was dangerous considering that I’m sort’ve on a no-buy at the moment so sticking close to the amount that was gifted was a challenge and a game for me 🙂
Fossil does an awesome job of having cute leather accessories and handbags that are affordable. I’ve been in need for new wallets so I ended up grabbing these…
Sydney Giftable Bifold in Rose Gold
What caught my eye about this bifold was the color. I’m a huge fan of rose gold and the metallic shine makes it perfect to tote around during the holiday season. The hot pink interior adds a nice touch as well! This wallet is small in comparison to what I’m used to carrying around everyday, but that’s exactly why I needed to have my hands on it. It’s great for those times when you just need your basics: ID, credit card (or a couple of them since there are a few slots), and some cash. This wallet has 2 card slots, ID slot, 3 pockets, a coin pocket, and 1 bill compartment.
Sydney Zip Multifunction in Gold
I’m a fan of wallets with zippers; I just can’t do the wallets that are held together with just a clasp in fear that I’ll lose something or I’ll end up dropping something. I like the option to stick a card in my wallet (forgoing inserting it in the correct slot) and zipping up my wallet if I’m in some sort of rush. This Sydney Zip Multifuntion wallet is slightly larger than the bifold and gives you the option to carry more with 12 card slots, 4 pockets, a coin pocket, and 2 bill compartments. I’ve tried to stuff this wallet using all the slots and it does get a little tight but perhaps it just needs time to stretch. The only downside to this wallet is that there is no ID window.
Glitz Penguin Wrist Wrap
Fossil has so many cute stackable bracelets available at the moment that it took me forever to figure out which one I wanted to come home with. The Party Animals really stuck out at me and I chose the Penguin over the Owl and Fox. The animals are covered in crystals and really sparkle! The only issue I have with this bracelet is that it tends to loosen up while wearing and I haven’t figured out a way to keep it from not loosening up. I’m constantly tugging on the ends which can get somewhat annoying, but otherwise its still a cute bracelet to have!
Though I got to walk away with some great new accessories, I did walk away without some of the pieces I fell in love with. Here a few that are worth sharing:
