Last week me and my best friend decided to channel our inner old ladies by having appetizers at Applebee's and hitting up the local Goodwill afterwards. There I came across this fringed leather biker jacket that for some reason I became inexplicably attached to. Upon pulling it from the rack, it looked hideous and almost comical, but I had to try it on. And then I fell in love with it. The fringe on the sleeves is a little much, but I really liked the fringe hanging from the back. It reminded me of Leighton Meester's Giambattista Valli dress, which you can see for yourself at the link [here].
My encounter with that fringed leather find at Goodwill gave me a new appreciation for fringe. Although it can easily be seen as tacky, too 80's, or overly Indian inspired, I definitely see how in the right doses it can add a bit of interest and texture to something solid black.
Thank you for putting up with my cheesy 80's Rebel Without a Cause wannabe poses. I hope you guys have a great weekend!
