maybe fringe is not so bad

Fringe is not something new. Surprisingly, this trend has been hanging around for quite some time. I haven't fallen for fringe until I saw Topshop's Flavio fringe sandal. Aside from the sweet wedge heel, I love the dainty fringe detail along the front of the shoe.

On a shopping trip that included Old Navy, I saw the sweetest little, leather bag that had fringe hanging along the bottom. I was oddly attracted to it but I passed. Can you guess? I'm regretting that decision. I was hoping to see it online but, for some reason, the exact same bag had no fringe. Huh? (Maybe, it will still be there today.)

I started to talk to a couple friends about this trend, particularly the Minnetonka booties, and I had to re-evaluate my feelings about fringe. I can say that I'm starting to catch on and suddenly, I need a pair of Minnetonkas NOW. If you have a pair, tell me how you like them.

Then, I was looking through an Urban Outfitters catalog that I got in the mail and it got me noticing more fringe. I think I need some fringe.

I have the Topshop Flavio fringe sandals & love them to death. My fave purchase so far this s/s 08. Also they only took a week to arrive to nyc.

I'm so glad that you love your sandals. Do they fit true to size? Would you say they are narrow, medium, or wide?

I wear a size 8 so I ordered a size 39 & they fit perfectly. Theyre medium.... you should get them, theyre perfection.

Oh, I think it's too late. I just checked and there is only size 39 left in brown and 40 in nude. I wear a size 7 so- NO DICE. C'est la vie! Enjoy them for the both of us.
