Fringe Factor


Boots? c/o Aldo (here) Jacket? Costa Blanca Fringe vest? Thrifted Shirt? Thrifted Beanie? Joe Fresh 
Jeans? Citizens Bag? Roots (same colour, new collection, big or small. )

I left a suede fringe jacket behind at the thrift store this week. I convinced myself I didn't need it and besides, it wasn't 50% off day. 
Foolish really... Everyone needs a fringe jacket.
I felt regret when I got home; such regret that I tweeted about missing it. Regret is not real until it is acknowledged on social media. 
And then I remembered that I had thrifted a fringe poncho years ago and in a moment of inspiration, I just crossed my fingers and cut that poncho into a vest. You won't be shocked to know that a fringe vest  is far easier to wear than a fringe poncho. You also won't be shocked to see me wearing this vest/jacket combo all the time from the point forward. All the cool points I lost growing up (bowl cut, pink glasses, a rented TV to watch the Olympics (long story) , 9:30 curfews (another long story) and this list could go on...), I have officially made up for with this fringe. 

I hope.

I'd never have thought to cut up a poncho into a vest, but the idea is brilliant! I love that! And your boots are killer! I've been hunting for a pair of black studded ones like those.
