Fringe…it’s everywhere! You can go whole-hog, or just test the waters. But, for heavens sake, do something with this fashion moment! It’s fun, flirty, and who doesn’t want a little fringe or two with benefits??
Here are a few of our favorites from the dramatic to the conservative…a lil something for everyone. So don’t be too shy, live on the fringe!
How about a jacket or two?
Skirts are another great way to show off this trend…
The two below are from Intermix…
A belle loves to sashay!!
Next up…tops! The first is Theory and the second is J Crew…love!!
If you want to kill two birds with one stone, (we just adore efficiency!) you can order both from Net-A-Porter.
Of course, it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t throw in a shoe or two. I mean, c’mon!! How about this beauty with a touch of fringe by Altazurra…
Or this next pair from Zara…
And these from Les Nouvelles…
All for the well-heeled belle!
And sporting a pocketbook is a great way to try fringe without jumping right into the deep end. Sometimes a belle likes to test the waters a bit…
Check out the Tallulah Fringe Messenger bag from ShopBop…
and this boho-chic hobo from Urban Outfitters…
And if this is all just too much to take in, at least try our favorite lash enhancer to really play up that “eye fringe”. You do know how to bat your eyelashes, don’t you?? Available at Nordstrom…

Before we know it, the next holiday (heart-iday…get it?) will be upon us. So, to help y’all out (cause that what belles do) we’ve come up with a few of our favorite gift ideas for the various and assorted Valentines in your life.
First…some thoughts on the process…
We won’t deny that we love any gift-giving occasion, and it’s true that we adore receiving a surcee. BUT we love nothing more than being the givers of great gifts. The act of giving can be a treat in itself when the recipient flashes a smile, gets a glint in the eye, exclaims with joy…confirmation that the present hit the mark.
Sadly, not everyone has been schooled in the art of receiving. Then it can be a total drag. Remember, “givers” deserve to get a little somethin’ out of the experience, too! It’s why we’ve raised our baby belles and beaux to be skilled giftees. It’s easy to be gracious and thankful when we get something we want. The real skill comes when it may not be what we expected. We’ve taught them to be grateful for the thought, no matter if they already have it, don’t care for it, or it just doesn’t suit, they must still effervesce…yes, effervesce. Our wee ones have able to spell effervesce since they were knee-high.
So, if you want to follow suit, and if you have a heart (it is February, for Pete’s sake!) then you must effervesce with every gift…large or small…awesome or not-so-much. Really, it’s the right thing to do. And you’re never too old to learn. So if you’re one of those….you know who you are…start effervescing now.
Enough digressing, time to get back to business and let you see the gift list…
