I really love fringe and I’m blaming 80’s Stevie Nicks. Each strand of fringe waves hello as you approach and shimmies goodbye as you depart. There’s a look-at-me quality. Fringe is very easily the spirit fingers of clothing detail. What’s not to love?
Since I’d prefer not to look like an automated car wash or a Hair extra, I have to choose my fringe wisely. Judicious use of fringe is the hallmark of a person whose fashion sensibilities are firmly planted in the here and now.
So the fringe I choose and that I love most is attached to my handbags. However, all fringe handbags are not created equal. Only a few are deemed beautiful enough to receive debauchee approval.
Fortunately, there is no reason to fret. There are some truly inspired offerings available to right now. The best of which are Barbara Boner creations. I dub her the princess of fringe. This woman knows my heart and I think I love her. Well, I KNOW I love her fringe bags. Check out hers and some others that make me jingle.
