Fringe Benefit

fringe_trend_shoes_headerThe 70’s continue their reign as far as Spring trends go this season and I must say, I’m kind of smitten. In addition to the FLARES, you guys know that I love so much, I was thinking of adding a fringe bag to my collection.

{Insert sound of record screeching to a stop, here!}

Who’d ever think this modern-classic… with a tomboy/gamine twist, would ever be into fringe?! It’s all about our STYLE IDENTITIES, right? It started when I saw the MOST PERFECT CLUTCH on my INSTAGRAM feed courtesy of CLARE V. (one of my favorite handbag designers). It was a basic pouch with a long extension of leather fringe along one side. Otherwise unembellished, it was as if a 70’s bohemian babe had an affair with a French minimalist, and this was their love child. A love child that would perfectly suit my minimalist palette of black, white, grey and beige. Unfortunately, this bag is a limited collection made exclusively for BERGDORF GOODMAN. If you’re as interested as I am, you can call the store directly (212-872-8901) and they will ship this beauty right to you.

Don’t you worry, my love for fringe does not quite stop at this bag. Oh, no… that would be too easy. Take a look at some of the other fringed pieces that I have been drooling over lately.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 (these look way more expensive than the price tag reads!) // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12 (a great budget friendly alternative to that Clair V. bag I mentioned above!) // 13 // 14

I couldn’t resist and just pulled the shopping trigger on the fringed sweater/coat (#2) myself! #jobhazard I’m planning on pairing it with a simple black leather mini, white t-shirt and white pointy-toe loafers: a great MODERN-CLASSIC with a tomboy/gamine twist combo, if I do say so myself. Can you tell I’m excited?

Now, to get YOU excited, here are a few more ways to wear your fringe this season:fringe_trend_skirt(via)
