Fossil Finds

 Um... how amazing is Fossil? I randomly went to there site yesterday and found way too many incredible things for my own good. It's a brand I've adored since high school ––my backpack was a canvas Fossil messenger that said "Bluebird"–– and now I'm wondering why I haven't been to their site until now.

There were a few pairs of shoes that I was tempted to snatch up, along with a sturdy-looking utility shirt and a couple of utility bags –– including one similar to the Alexa Mulberry –– but I think my real weakness came when I discovered the "Fossil Finds" section of the site!

It's pretty much a vintage section, and the pieces they have there are the kinds of things that I want to fill my entire house with. Antique birdcages, old pharmacy notes in a rusty metal container, wooden boxes housing notes from the past, and don't even get me started on the clothes. I was so tempted to buy that white dress from the SALE section of the vintage shop, along with a ton of creamy blouses. I haven't made any purchases yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to be stalking this store until the end of time.

LOVE Fossil. Their clothes are so fantastic, and all the things I've bought from there have held up really well.

Just wanted to say a sarcastic thanks for pointing me to this site! Now, I want everything in that fossil finds section. These are also things I dream of owning and head to the flea markets/thrift stores to find. Dangit! I will also be trying hard not to buy all of these things.

It's so funny because I knew about Fossil when I was younger, but I wasn't all that into them. I re-discovered them recently when I
saw one of their killer backpacks...I needed it sooo...bad! everything they have is so neat now, not how I remember them at all...

Amazing indeed. I just got their catalog for the first time yesterday and was amazing at how much I love their items, especially their leather bags.

I really never thought of Fossil as selling more than watches, hah! But I do love their clothes and everything else on the website. I also love that they have free shipping.

Still, they're a bit out of my cheap price range, even the sale items are expensive :(

I'm so glad that you posted this. I love Fossil and I feel like the brand has grown up at the same rate that I have grown up. I've watched its style mature over the years with my own and somehow we came to the same place.

I'm currently a whore for this:

What the what! I honestly had no idea Fossil was so great! At first I thought you had discovered an amazing new etsy shop or something!!!

Anna said...

I love all the pieces! Especially the boots. Thanks for showing me such a great website I'm definitely going to go and have a look.

Great pieces. Thanks for sharing!! I love the old glass bottles and the wooden box.

This is interesting. It's fun to see big retail chains beginning to carry vintage. Wouldn't it be awesome to work as their buyer, scouring all the best vintage!

Hmmmm, one can only dream.
