Spring Trends: Fringed Sandals

As I was flipping through the new W the other day I recognized these
sandals from my previous post. Yes, Fringe! Gladiator! Sandals!!! They
are Etro Spring 2008.

Which makes sense since those are Tanya Dziahileva's feet and she walked the show.

Of couse, these got me obsessed with finding my own pair of fringed
sandals for Spring. I found a variety of styles at different prices.

Fringe T Strap Sandal $28.00 Urban Outfitters

Fringe Sandal £40.00 Top Shop
Sorry I don't do conversions this late!

Antik Batik Fringe Sandal £85.00

3.1 Phillip Lim
Helen Fringe Sandal $150.00

Prada Fringe sandal $332.62

These will definitely be fun to work into some Spring outfits.
I would suggest pairing them with a beautifully cut bright floral dress!
Try to keep your outfits nice and pretty since these sandal do have the
possibility of looking too casual.

Agate Necklace from Urban Outfitters

In Geological Fashion

Ever since I was a kid I have been fascinated with gems, rocks, and minerals.
I had a huge collection of petrified wood, fossils, minerals, and gems. Every year
in elementary school I would do the science fair and just display these beautiful
objects! Naturally, this led to my love of jewelry, as well.

I was always fascinated by the color and unique prints on every piece.
Each piece was your own to cherish forever. I was so happy to see that Etro
took inspiration from the mineral Agate for Spring 2008.

Agate is not just something beautiful to look at but it
is believed to have a variety of powers. It is pretty fascinating stuff.

If you are ever iffy about a certain color or a combination. Always look
to nature... if it happens in nature then it definitely works in fashion. So
don't be afraid of bright color combinations for Spring! Check out the rest
of the Etro collection for more color inspirations!
