Fringe as most of us I'm sure have noticed by now, is everywhere! It's been so on trend this year. You can pretty much see it on handbags, shoes, coats, skirts, dresses, tops.....in every color and in various varieties of fabrics. And I of course, had to jump on the fringe wagon myself and join the crowd who was already adding some sass to their everyday wardrobe with in this fun and flirty trend.
I found a red fringe skirt few weeks ago at Lane Bryant while I was there looking at some fringe boots. I don't shop for clothes at Lane Bryant normally because the clothes are too big for me......even their smallest sizes are usually quite big. I will normally wander in there to look at shoes, bras or accessories. This time however I spend half a morning looking at different fringe boots in few different storescasually walked in. They had a black fringe booties but I did not like them much. As I was talking to the sales lady about this fringe trend that has taken over everyone....I casually mentioned that I would love to find a nice fringe skirt. Couple minutes later, she came out with the new red fringe skirt they just got in stock that very morning that wasn't even on the floor get. I was both delighted but also felt a bit disappointed. The skirt was exactly what I was looking for.....and on top of that was a beautiful red color (black also available now).....my favorite color ....but the smallest size was too big.
I decided to try it on anyway hoping and praying it ran small. I really wanted it to work ....Few minutes later I came out with a long face.....it was huge in the waist area :(. The sales lady looked at me and said "if you like it that much, just tailor it". If course, I smiled ....that is exactly what I was going to do......
Fast forward few weeks to last night (Friday). I was going out and it was a cold, fall night. I needed
something sexy but not too revealing but also something warm enough and comfortable. The combo
of my black fitted sweather with subtle lace along with opaque tights and tall suede boots combination with playful red fringe fit the bill perfectly. I paired the outfit with bold brown/black cat eyeliner and shimmery red glossy lip....and I was out the door.
