We’re seeing a lot of fringe lately and I think we’ve earned it over the last [however long we’ve been miserable]. Fringe is fun! (Possibly also flammable, which is not as fun, but just try not to shimmy around any candles.) I hope this is the kind of look where you can remove the fringe element and be in a very reasonable/sexy purple velvet tuxedo dress, and then put the fringe on when you have to go out and live as your secret alter-ego, who is absolutely either a crimefighter or a rock star, or possibly the headliner in Paris’s most successful Jem and the Holograms cover band. Or — not to be greedy — possibly all three.
