Fringe is the New Black

Kind of a long post, but there was definitely a lot of inspirational visuals at the Shinecock Nation Indian Pow Wow I went to in Southampton this weekend.

A Native American woman, her children and myself at the pow wow.  Their outfits were so colorful and beautiful.  

My friends and I with an Aztec dancer.  His outfit was unbelievable...scary and beautiful all in one.

A shot of his feathered headdress from the side.  Unbelievable!!

Shots of Native American traditional garb.

This guys boots were sooo cool.  I had to get a shot and I also really want a pair for myself!! ha ha  

Carved animal necklace created by one of the vendors at the pow wow, Norma Jean Locklear (910-733-0187).  My friend bought a very similar one, which I think could make for a very unique boho look.

My loot from the pow wow, turquoise beaded barrette and stainless steal beaded earrings.  You can't really tell from the photo but these curve around your ear in a very cool and sophisticated way.  Not sure of the designer of these.

After leaving the pow wow we stopped by downtown Southampton to grab some diner.  Above is a cute sidewalk cafe.

In the entry way to the Ralph Lauren Home Store on Job St.  This store was so clean and airy.  I'm wearing a cheapy jewel green shirt from F21 with a woven belt from Anthropologie, my American Apparel denim running shorts, Steve Madden fringe flats, Rebecca Minkoff handbag and Mui Mui shades.

Close up on the Anthro belt.

Also wore this indian head ring I picked up from a street vendor on St. Marks Places this spring.


Quick outfit post after dinner at one of my favorite Mexican food/margarita spots in the city.

Wearing a cream tissue tee with bronze studs from H&M, with American Apparel denim running shorts, Banana Republic nude heels, and Rebecca Minkoff morning after handbag.

Tried to get a close up of my bronze fire bird earring with cut out crosses in the center.  Got them from a street artisan in NYC.

Fringe Benefits

Sorry to everyone for not posting too much lately.  I've been taking photos, but haven't had time to do much posting.  My work and social life has been pretty packed lately, but hoping to catch up tonight and do a lot of posts.

Here are just some outfit shots from a night out in Manhattan last weekend.  I love how fun this dip dyed fringe shirt is from Foley & Corinna.  Worn with J Brand skinny jeans, Nine West gladiator heels, metallic Lauren Merkin clutch and gigantic abalone ring I got in New Orleans (sorry forgot to get a close up on it).

Outside of SEA in the meat packing district I spotted this fantastic wood paneled station wagon and it was so retro lovely I had to get a shot with it!  Again love the fun fringe.

Shot of my friend and I ending up our night with an always fun game of Buck Hunter a one of our favorite dives in the city.
