Fringe

I SO have a thing for fringe and its relative, the tassel. While tassels can be pricey, a length of fringe trim from the fabric store is quite inexpensive. The makings of this fringe bracelet were surely less than a dollar.

Shrug, Express (swap). Dress, Melton. Slip, thrifted. Dupati scarf, importer. Black tights, Danskin. Gray lace tights, Apostrophe. Boots, White Mountain. Fringe bracelet, self-made.


Please excuse the giant hand. I’m coming to get you, Ba-ba-ra!


Today’s black lace element is a bit subtler. As a consolation, you get gray lace, too.

Hee! I love the "Night of the Living Dead" reference.

When I was 20, I sewed a hem of fringe on a cropped jacket. I love the swinginess!

You always look so chic and well put together. Do your colleagues love seeing what you'll wear to work?

I love this outfit. It is subdued but detailed too. All the fring and lace and needle work makes it special. Very nice, Kasmira!

I love the combination of two varieties of tights, you inspired me to try this myself.
Your hair looks nice today, and the pink lipstick adds a nice splash of colour to the outfit!
Very nice!

I love the tight combos. Does it ever get TOO hot throughout the day?

How fun! I imagine I'd be dipping a fringe bracelet in my food or getting it caught in stuff CONSTANTLY. But I made a chain tassel bracelet that I'm less afraid of damaging.

Hi! I check your blog almost daily for fashion inspiration but usually never leave comments. It's not because I don't think you deserve them...it's mostly just because I'm lazy :). Anyway, I was just reading some controversy over reader comments on fashion blogs and I just wanted to say that I think your blog is a breath of fresh air. You always have funny things to say and I look forward to days when you include your kitties in the post! (I am a total cat lady and completely believe I was a cat in my past life.) I don't think I really have a point...I just wanted to let you know that I enjoy reading your blog and keep up the good work! :)

Faux Fuchsia - I do get a number of comments from my coworkers about how they look forward to seeing what I wear each day. I get plenty of stares and a few whispers, too, but I just ignore those. :)

Cherish @ My Cup of Tea - I've never been too warm from the doubled tights. I guess if it DID happen, I could remove a pair.

Sal - yes, I discovered that a fringe bracelet is a bit unsanitary. Next up, a fringe necklace.

leah - thanks! Your comment itself is a breath of fresh air! I've been reading the debates too, but just have stayed out of them.
