Y’all know me and my obsession with fringe. As any die-hard slave-to-fashion knows, there’s always something that gets under your skin—a heel, a bag, a ring, a look…whatever—that your mind just can’t let go of until it’s yours.
Lately I’ve been crazy obsessed with these Isabel Marant boots, although way too late to procure them. (Of course.) They’re from a season or two ago, I believe. But they are a recurring motif in my perpetual mental list of wants, a part of this boho luxe fantasy reel that plays in a never-ending loop in my shallow little mind.
Wait. Pfffff!Who am I kidding?! Like I could procure them anyway. That’s why they’re in my fantasy and not in my closet. As such, I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of wedge boots with a thick mane of fringe down the side. A pair that’s not too high, not flat, not faux, and totally boho.
Well, who would have thought I’d find my fringe boots in tiny little Cronulla, New South Wales, Australia?! Not me. But it just so happens there is the cutest boutique called South of the Border which imports the most delicious leather goods from Mexico. Yes, the irony of that is not lost on me. I came all the way to Australia to source boots from our little neighbor in the U.S. Whatevs.

I know I Instagrammed this shot, but being the lazy fashion blogger I’ve become, I’m using it for my outfit post. Technically, I’m still on holiday anyway. Plus, in the back of my mind I’m thinking, why can’t I shoot outfits exclusively with my iPhone and do all the editing via Instagram? Hmmm. Maybe I just will.
