Bag Crush: Fossil Sydney Satchel Bag

I can’t seem to get my mind off these satchel /doctor’s bags I spotted at the Fossil shop in Robinson’s Place (Manila) 2 weeks ago:


I love the simple, elegant look of these bags, plus the versatility of wearing it as either a handbag or a cross-body bag.

I’d learn that this bag crush of mine is called Sydney Satchel, made of buttery leather and comes in various neutral and rich shades.

I came up with this collage of colors that I liked for my bag, if and when I get to buy it hehe!


I have 3 top favorites here, which you can easily spot because I made them appear bigger in the collage:


The colors are called Mushroom (grey), Watermelon (pink red) and Dark Turquoise (blue).  I like the Dark Turquoise bag best.  I seriously want it to be my first leather blue bag!  (Yes, I don’t have any leather bag in this shade yet!)

Kaso wala yung color picks ko from our local Fossil stores, so I’ll have to order it online.

The Sydney Satchel bag retails at $178.00 (about Php 7,800.00), which surprised me ‘cos that’s almost the price here in Manila (it’s Php 7,500.00 at Robinson’s Manila pa nga, if I remember correctly).

So if I want my online purchase to be sulit, I better do it when there’s a huge sale and my bag color choices are on sale, too.

Whaddya think of the Sydney Satchel bag, ladies?  I am so into it already!

    OMG I have the bag in Gold! I bought it at Metzingen Outlet City in South Germany. It’s been my everyday bag ever since. You can see a picture of me using it here: I stopped wearing my more luxurious bags in Berlin, because this city is a notious bag and shoe killer. Because of all the commuting and walking we do bag stitches are literally ripped if they are not as robust as the stitching of brands like Fossil. So most of the bags I am wearing now are Fossil.

    I’ve seen all the Sydney satchel and my favourites are the mint and the gold. The gold is so lux, yet not too shiny that it can’t be worn everyday. The size of these babies are perfect. Real leather, yet lightweight so easy to carry. Perfect size – not too big and not too small. I can place my umbrella, scarves and uniqlo pocket parka inside. And what makes it berlin/travel friendly is the delicate yet strong long strap. I got mine here for 80 euros (tax free). For the sturdiness, quality and look, super worth it! I hope you get this bag with a great deal! Go for gold! haha
