I left a suede fringe jacket behind at the thrift store this week. I convinced myself I didn't need it and besides, it wasn't 50% off day.
Foolish really... Everyone needs a fringe jacket.
I felt regret when I got home; such regret that I tweeted about missing it. Regret is not real until it is acknowledged on social media.
And then I remembered that I had thrifted a fringe poncho years ago and in a moment of inspiration, I just crossed my fingers and cut that poncho into a vest. You won't be shocked to know that a fringe vest is far easier to wear than a fringe poncho. You also won't be shocked to see me wearing this vest/jacket combo all the time from the point forward. All the cool points I lost growing up (bowl cut, pink glasses, a rented TV to watch the Olympics (long story) , 9:30 curfews (another long story) and this list could go on...), I have officially made up for with this fringe.
