There's something great about wearing fringed things. The movement makes you swing about like an idiot (well, me at least). Wearing my fringe dress may have been a bit fancy for the day time, so I restricted myself to just fringing up top. This top is rather longer than the photos show, in fact most of it is hidden, but I like to belt it and have some fringey bits hanging over the belt and cinched waist. The velvet skirt adds another texture to the outfit, something I rarely think about in an outift, as I'm more of a pattern girl than a texture girl. The handbag is one I lusted after for a while, and when I finally got it I never used it much. I think the colours restrict the number of outfits I can wear it with, but I do love it. The shape is so ladylike, and the inside is a gorgeous red. It did just occur to me that the reverse side of it is plain black, so maybe I could get away with carrying it the wrong way round with more outfits? No-one would ever know! (execpt maybe you guys reading this)...so yeah thats it, not a lot to say today...oh maybe I'll just mention one of the necklaces. The longer one with dangly bits is from the V&A, based on a piece in their collection. I forget what era/cultural reference it is based on, but I like it because it looks like mini Faberge eggs hanging down from it, a little Russian reference I immediately jumped on.
