Fall Wardrobe Preview: The Fringe

My sister, Vanessa, recently brought fringe shirts to my attention. I instantly loved them and even created my own version out of one of Nick's old faded tee shirts. 

Vanessa never actually got around to buying or making a fringe shirt so I decided to create one for her. However, she is a tiny person and I worried that a fringe tee would look very bag-like on her small frame. Instead of a shirt, I decided to create a fringed vest for her. 

I cropped a black Mossimo tank top, cut fringe around the bottom, and attached some sky blue beads to a few random fringe pieces to give it a little dimension. The result was stylishly amazing and perfect for fall. To illustrate my vision for the vest, I assembled an outfit that encompasses my vision for fall fashion. Nick was nice enough to take a break from the Oklahoma/Florida State football game and snap a few pictures of me playing dress up.

This fringed awesomeness will soon be making its way across the country to Vanessa via the United States Postal Service. For everyone else, use this as inspiration to re-purpose your own fringed clothing and then email photos of your creations to me at mrsb.sellai@gmail.com. 

I am excited to see all of your amazing ideas!
This image is the essence of my fall style.

Stay crafty my friends...



  1. hi love!

    :) the vest turned out amazing!

    friday i worked at Agoura High School
    and all the girls supporting the football
    team had shirts cut out the exact same way
    the only difference is they put beads at the
    end of the straps :) looked really cute

    happy monday love!


  2. I love it! :)Now I just need a cute leather purse, and my owl ring will complete the look. I will definitely post pics on my blog of me wearing it when it gets here.
