Falling for fringe?



FringebootsI don't get it. The fringe thing.

Whose idea was it to break out the cowgirl shag? While boho and edgy in concept, this trend somehow manages to fall short. Maybe the excess material seems superfluous in lean times. Maybe it's just plain fugly.

Fringebag Now I'm not down on this year's other fall styles. Let me count the trends I like: Shades of cranberry and eggplant, sweater dresses, tie tops. But I cannot, will not embrace boots that look like they need to be shaved. Shaggy purses, I find slightly more palatable, but only a little.

Sound off on fall fringe: fug or fab?
