Fossil Sydney Zip Phone Wallet a la Bagable

Massive thanks to the folks at for providing me with a voucher in exchange of reviewing their service here on the blog. I've shopped with before, and I've always found the whole experience to be very quick, easy and efficient. 

90% of all purchases I make online, I keep, partly down to the effort that's involved returning items or having to fork out the cash on posting it back, only for the item to arrive much later than you need it.

Last Christmas I bought an Eastpak backpack as a very last minute gift for my other half from, and hadn't checked the dimensions. It arrived within 2-3days and I was disappointed by the size - totally my fault for ordering the wrong style. With just days running up to Christmas, I returned the back pack and had a brand new bigger rucksack on my doorstep well in time for Christmas day. Every purchase on site comes with free returns (postage paid stickers) and the team are quick to sort out exchanges or offer refunds.

Anyway, I had £50 to spend last week. I was like a kid in a sweet store, clicking away; way too many nice bags and purses to choose from, at very reasonable prices. As you can tell by the last pic, I was a happy wee customer.

My old Topshop ruched purse was well overdue an upgrade (it used to be cream, now it looks closer to black. bleurgh) so I opted for this beautiful real leather Fossil Sydney Zip Phone Wallet in brown, to take its place. It arrived very quickly. There were some slight issues to begin with where I was sent the wrong purse by mistake but the team were more than happy to swap it over and I had the purse I ordered within 3 working days after sending the other one back. Speedy service.

Isn't it a little gem? It matches my tan Zara bag to perfection, and every time I go to open it, the sadness of never having much cash inside is instantly lifted as I'm greeted with a bright pink leather lining. Cute!

It could do with having a few more card slots though - I have a loyalty card for almost every store, like wtf does a beauty card from Superdrug even do?! but other than that, it's a perfect, compact, versatile little wallet. The very fact that you can chuck your iPhone in it as you run down the local is reason enough to buy one. A Fossil purse is a purchase for life :)

Usually retailing at £49, Bagable offer a reduced price of £44.10. It's worth checking out their stock if you're looking for designer label presents with optional savings.
