Tassels - I've been noticing them for a while, quietly entering the scene, then BAM! taking the fashion world by storm. Maybe you've seen them too - maybe you haven't. But I assure you now that I've pointed them out to you, you'll start to see them all over the place. ALL over the place!

It wasn't even all that long ago that I started to notice these tassels all over the place - on clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry... at first I wasn't so sure... but then I started to fall in love... A huge fan of boho chic, I started to see these tassels on clothes that I was drawn to. And then one night I headed over to a dear friend's house for cocktails and dinner and she had this incredible necklace with miniature tassels all over it... At that point I saw them everywhere! They're fun, youthful, whimsical - they make you smile... they remind you not to take anything too seriously! We all need a good dose of that from time to time.

I just about died when I saw the above espadrilles for the first time. It was a Sunday afternoon and I was at an event hosted by a local restaurant when I looked down and saw these shoes on a woman sitting next to me. I told her how much I loved them and now I am sharing the love with you. You can find them at Soludos. Aren't they fab? And they're under 100 clams to boot!
