Unearthing a Fossil

I'm in the dark about a lot of things, but I knew that Fossil had been making more than just watches and handbags for a few seasons now. Honestly, though, I've paid zero attention until I noticed a cute Fossil ad while perusing the latest Lucky magazine and that got me clicking my way through their web site.

The Fossil theme for spring is "The Art of Vintage" and what's caught me eye is bunches of Anthro-inspired pieces. Their shoes have me ogling! Is it weird that I feel like I'm cheating on one of my favorite brands as I'm looking through some of Fossil's less-expensive but very similar styles? All Fossil needs is a lush forest and some morning mist to complete the look.


Has anyone purchased anything from Fossil before? Can you "speak" to their quality and fit?








FYI, free shipping is standard on orders over $100, however if you use code "LINKSHARE" you can get free shipping with no order minimum (not sure about expiration, but it worked today).

  1. Thanks for the code! I recently bought the cropped denim and love them. I also have the Maddox flats in black and antiqued gold. So comfortable. I will be ordering these Amanda open toe flats today.

  4. They sent me a catalog the other day, and now I'm wondering what I did with it! I know some things in it caught my eye. I was also surprised that they offer clothing. That Harlow dress you picked is particularly pretty.

  5. Thanks for visiting, cdp! I never knew Fossil made such great looking shoes, good to hear that they're comfy too!

    Glad I could "help", Kcooksi and Ashley. We all shopping-enable each other.

    Thanks, Lady Cardi. I'm seriously tempted to try out some items, not like I need to do more shopping at all ...

  7. Haha, I used to work at Fossil before, and helped open their store in Times Square. I actually haven't tried any of their clothing since my boss was emphasizing how Fossil was all about the accessories.

    But one of my other supervisors wore all Fossil clothing & they looked great! Very Antho-inspired indeed.

  8. While the sleeves of the Harlow and Loretta would not be flattering on me, I love their fabric! And the Hope top looks perfect for warmer weather. There is a Fossil store not far from where I live--I wonder if they carry clothing?

  9. Very pretty, never purchased anything from there. Looked at their leather messenger bags before and didn't think those were great quality, but didn't really look at anything else.

  10. WWNW - I really kind of want all of their shoes, but I am in a budget clamp down myself.

    Audrey - Fossil has really expanded from just watches and leather gear. I do like their new collection though - though I have no idea where there is a Fossil store near me.

    E - I'm not much of an upper arm barer myself, but some of the things are cute! Go to your local Fossil and try/buy/try :o)

    OneCraftyFox - I kind of feel the same way about their bags - they are kind of cute but not really my style. But their shoes, ooh!

  11. I love the dresses that Fossil has out now, though I haven't actually bought any. There is a Fossil store in my go-to mall, so I've tried on several things from them before. Their dresses and tops are excellent quality from what I can tell, and their sizing is pretty consistent to what I'm used to (as in I take the same sizes there as I do in most stores).

  13. I had no idea they had such great cloths! And those shoes are divine, I'll have to check that out!

  14. Amy/Anjali - It looks like I may have to go hunt down a Fossil store or cave and purchase some items online. The shoes are killing me and I'm not big on the willpower.

    Liz - Thanks for visiting!
