fringed denim

fringe is quite an obsession of mine. i love it. i think it adds the best kind of edge to any piece, especially a bag. ugh, ive wanted a fringed bag forever. ive eyed many… many out of my budget. pretty typical when it comes to handbags for me. but back to this vest. its denim, its fringed to the max, and theres that pop of detail on the back. i got this for a steal from asos. i always try to find the most marked down piece that i can when i check out the “up to 70% off” section. it’s a hunt. a game i like to play. asos probably has the best clearance section of any store. pairing this vest with more denim seemed right, and of course adding my leopard heels was a no brainer. so yes, theres a lot going on here, but it all works. it works because i want it to.

can we talk about this location as well? this is an abandoned strip mall that is just waiting for some incredible boutiques to fill it. i like the way these pictures turned out next to the brick and columns. it’s run down so it fits the style of my ootd…kinda grungy. definitely going to keep coming back. i thought it’d be nice to do a more formal outfit against the rough setting. so stay tuned.
