Fringe. Although I typically have a love hate relationship with it. However, I have been loving it more than hating it lately. Perhaps it is because fringe is everywhere or perhaps it is because of something else. No matter what the reason, you can’t simply slap on a bunch of fringe and have a stellar handbag.

Juicy Couture Leather Hobo

The Juicy Couture Leather Hobo is a good example of a fringe bag I am on the fence about. At first glance, I like the bag. At second glance, I think the fringe looks a little sloppy. The brown leather looks really nice, while the touch of hardware helps draw the eye to something other than the fringe. I might actually have to say Juicy Couture did something good here. Buy through Saks for $378.

    I’m not a fan of fringe and this bag is just ugly to me.

    If I wanted this look, Id get the under $100 suede version at Urban Outfitters. It looks better than this one.

    This is an example of how NOT to do fringe. The individual fringes have creases, twists, and stretched edges, and there’s nothing you’ll be able to do to straighten them out. It all adds up to a very messy, cheap looking bag.

    Please, no more fringe, unless it’s tidy (which this isn’t). Even the outside zipper can’t save this one. Looks like “Cousin It” with stitches.

    There are SO many fringe bags out there. Ladies, let’s unite in the anti-fringe movement! I’m not really into the boho style — it just doesn’t go with what I typically wear.

    Shannon… Are you interested in selling it if it’s not in bad condition?
