On the fringe

Have you ever bought something that wasn't quite the same when you went to put it on?  That's the story with this fringe vest.  I have multiple factors that I can blame this on.  I mean, why would I want to admit that it's my own fault for not knowing how to style it?

Firstly, when you're from a city known for its conservative styles, it's hard to be motivated to dress to stick out like a sore thumb.  Next, I'm kind of a germaphobe and the fringes kinda touch the sink when I lean slightly to wash my hands.  This is disgusting and makes me want to burn the vest in a sacred ritual as an attempt to rid myself of contamination.  But mostly the first reason.





What I'm wearing:
-Brown fringe vest
-Lace shorts
-Orange top
-Fringe necklace

  1. I feel ya on the conservative city thing. It is way hard to experiment and try new things when you know all you are going to get is stared at, and have weird descriptions thrown at you. But do you know what? Do it anyways :) You look great and somebody has to help out that town!

  2. Haha, oh I know, except my town isn't conservative. It's just...so small town. Haha, basically, boring, and if you dress up in any way they look at you funny. It's intimidating, but I have too much fun expressing myself through fashion to pay too much attention.
    Anyway, I happen to LOVE this fringe vest! If ever you decide to get rid of it, know it can find a new home with me ;)

  9. But the vest is so cute!! Don't burn it. :) But I know what you mean about the fringe. It can be quite annoying when it swings everywhere; getting into things it's not supposed to. But you look great in it and I love your cute shorts too! Have a great weekend! <3

  18. Other than the germs, I totally dig the vest! It's not something you could rock on the regular, but it could be multi-functional!

  19. I love the vest, I know what you mean though. I can't do sequins most of the time because they're scratchy. I don't know how many people feel comfortable in sequined garments, things that drag the ground (maxis) or flutter about.
