Bohemian Chic: Fringe & Tassel

(image via style.com)
Seeing fringes and tassels remind me of bygone eras of flappers from the roaring 20's and the freedom loving spirits of the 60's. A piece with fringe or tassel detail immediately transports SG into I-AM-HIP-AND-COOL mode. For myself I am not sure about fringes and tassels on clothing but I am digging this for accessories.1. Harrison Morgan fringe bolero $220 via Saks
2. Adrianna Papell $238 via Nordstrom
3. Christian Louboutin $1095 via Saks --- so much cuter in person
4. Juicy tassel bracelet $98 via Nordstrom
5. ABS tassel necklace $230 via Intermix

What about some jewel candies for the eyes?
6. Di Grisogono black/white diamond tassel earrings
7. Boucheron ruby tassel necklace ~ about $30,000 --- The necklace is really cute seeing it in the boutique but it's just way too expensive for this particular style. This is not an investment for me.
8. Chanel star fringe necklace
9. Cartier tassel 18K yellow gold earrings ~ about $9000 --- to die for on but the price is killing me...

Tod's fringe bag from 09 SS - available in python or calf leather (I scoffed at the picture until I had the bag in my hand. It's super cute but quite heavy --- see post here.)

So are you ready to fringe?


  1. Oohh I'm all about the fringe. I especially adore that Tod's bag--although my experience with Tods hasn't been all that favorable in terms of wear and tear. Still loving it, though :-)

  2. I like it, specially for my hair!

  3. Those Louboutin heels are darling. And I want that Chanel star necklace so bad! LOL

  4. I think that a little fringe can go a long way.

  5. I love the trend! Would love a brown leather bag with long fringes in it!

  6. Fringe has been a trend that seems to endure. Really, it almost always seems to be in. Except, when it gets to the verge of being cowboy fringe.

  7. LOVE tassels! And I really like all the pieces you have chosen.

  8. I love fringes, they're so boho chic!!! I´m wearing fringes today :)

  9. I love your choices...so fun!

  10. I am trying to hold back not knowing if I am going to like fringes but I am give in soon.

  11. Those Louboutins rock! Fabulous post!


  12. Hi there-I'm loving the black belt in the first picture best!!

  13. I am eagerly awaiting fringe with open arms. I love the JJ Winters Fringe Bag. But that Adrianna Papell dress? Reminds me of a Badgley Mischka that I've been coveting. This one, however, is much closer to my price range. Fabulous finds, love!

  14. i like it on the shoes and bags!

  15. i like it on bags but that's about it
    a little one shoes is okay...
    it's just not me haha

  16. i think i would do the fringe purse. plus i've seen some older Louboutin heels with fringe that were pretty cute.

  17. I don't know about fringes. I can't see myself doing fringes.


Love to hear your thought.....
