When is comes to a casual everyday style, I love the look of a simple leather handbag. My favorites right now are those satchel-messenger styles that you see with big name designers. Some visual references for what I’m talking about would be Mulberry’s Alexa Bag and Proenza Schouler’s PS1 Satchel. They have this modern vintage feeling about them and they look great paired with jeans and a t-shirt. They are, in their own way, very iconic pieces. But in this mini quest of sorts, I have discovered that getting this great look doesn’t necessarily need to come in the form of a designer bag. Don’t get me wrong, I love the two handbags I mentioned above. However, they are rather expensive and my interest in this look may not survive the investment. I think that is why I am finding myself drawn to this look-for-less pictured here. Meet the Fossil Vintage Reissue II Messenger Bag!
Just look at this bag! It definitely has that same modern vintage vibe! I love the front flap complete with buckle accents and twist lock closure. It has a short top handle and optional shoulder strap. Perfect! Plus I absolutely love the contrasting colors. Navy and light tan look awesome together! And for just a little over $200, I won’t feel guilty if my impulse for a modern vintage look wears off by the end of the summer.
