Fringe Festival

If you've visited the vintage shop or even just have been reading the blog for a while now, my love of all things western and fringey will come as no surprise. This affinity is more than just a fangirl enthusiasm for the yee-haw factor, or an exaggerated expression of my Americanness here in the Scottish Highlands. To me, fringe acts as a sort of fashion fidget spinner; it's a completely functionless embellishment by modern standards, only really good for lulling us into a sense of calm with its swoosh, a pleasant diversion to play with while you stand in line at the DMV.

But the underlying theme here is really that fringe is just fun. Fringe is the sartorial equivalent of throwing your hands in the air and yelling "Wheeeeeeee!" at the top of your lungs. Since things pretty much suck for a lot of people in the world right now, I think we could all do with a bit more simple, purposeless fun in our lives. This is certainly one way to take a step in that direction if you're so inclined. As purposeless fun goes, fringe is fairly easy to obtain, less sedentary than bingeing Netflix, and a whole lot healthier than booze.

Here are a few pieces I've recently added to the shop and my personal collection. Because sometimes stock originally intended for the shop doesn't quite make it to its final destination. Sorry not sorry.
