Moodboard: Vintage Travel

   I saw a wonderful bag by Fossil this morning (Fossil is the best thing to come out of Texas), and it really got my mind onto travelling. I don't know if it was the colour, the leather or just the fact that it's a bag, but I just couldn't get it out of my head. There are so many places I want to go - Canada, Iceland, Denmark, the Arctic - and while I know I'll never get to most of them, it's got me itching to leave the country. Fortunately there's another trip to The Netherlands coming up in April, so that will certainly do.
    The Fossil bag itself is wonderful - I'm not one that goes for bags usually, but there are specific things I look for in them if I do decide to buy one. This one has everything. It's understated, with its lack of detail, but the key charm is a wonderful addition, and really completes it. It's more than big enough for my needs, which also means less carrier bags when I go out shopping, and it has a long strap which means easy access while I'm carrying it around. It would never need to leave my shoulder. The leather is a lovely shade of brown, and the antique metal details don't attract the eye too much. Plus it looks sophisticated enough for me to use it without feeling like a showy twit. Like I said: it's got everything I look for in a bag.
