The Floor Report: Fringe Benefits

Jan 27, 2010

Looking for a way to beat the January blahs? Add a little sway to your swagger with fringe hanging off of everything from basics to beaded earrings.  These boho-chic fashions are bringing back the vibe of Woodstock on a big way.

Minnetonka Calf Hi-3 Layer Fringe Boot (Zappos, $79)

I work on my feet all day, and there’s nothing I love more than a flat boot that lends proportion and bit of bohemian flair to leggings and skinny jeans.  They’re also incredibly comfotable.  And look Belle, no shearling!

Leigh and Luca Tassled Scarf (Leigh&Luca.com, $168)

Everyone knows I amd a scarf hustler, a pusher really.  Scarves are the easiest way to add texture, interest, and color to an otherwise unfinished ensemble.  But these scarves by Leigh & Luca are extra special.

Fringed on the ends and created on looms over 100 years old, these scarves have the greatest patterns and designs.  Each comes with its own adorable sketched illustration of all the ways one could wear it or use it.  Cold at work? Need to be cozy on the plane? This scarf will solve all of your problems.  I love them and they are the perfect gift for a friend. 

Penny Fringe Clutch (ShopBop, $277)

This clutch is the perfect statement size.  Big enough not to be overlooked and also easily holds cellphone, wallet, and makeup musts for day or a night out. It’s eco-friendly, fringy-fabulous in one package. 

Haute Hippie Ostrich Mini-Dress (Saks, $595)

Ruffle your feathers and fringe with this ostrich feather and modal mini dress. An unexpected take on spring cocktail for the girlie-chic or rock glam gal.  Just add a beaded belt and dance the night away in style.

 

Blue Hand Crochet Earring (Ben-Amun, $95)

And if you just want to flirt with fringe, try a small accessory like these beautiful crochet fringe earrings.  Just put your hair up and let the earrings do the talking.  These are the perfect way to add a little punch to your regular wardrobe.

    Where are those earrings from? They’re really cute.

    I added that. Kind of important to know where you can buy them…

    I’m sorry, Belle, but those fringed boots are even more hideous than UGGs, and oodles less professional. You rarely disappoint, but this is one bad call!

    I didn’t write this post. This was all Miss M who writes the Floor Report. I don’t edit her content.

    Thanks. I think I need the intern price range, though…

    My apologies, Belle! Miss M, deep-six the fringed boots!

The Mondays: July 22, 2024

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.
