Although, there is no actual purple colour in this print I liked the contrast with the handbag, and it still worked in my opinion.
I could not put my finger on what it was that I wanted to change on this fringe bag until I carried it to the art store. Then, a great idea struck me like lightning — metal embellishments will liven up this purple tassel concoction.
I used metal eyelet fasteners and dispersed them on the front and back of my bag. Otherwise it looked like this. Since the fringe is actually in two rows on my handbag, I put two eyelets on the second row, and one in the centre, this way when the light hits the metal eyelets you can see it peeking through the fringe.
After I finished knotting the fringe strips on the bag I'm much happier with it, and it makes me miss doing more DIYs, so hopefully a few more in the works. Apologies for the quick/blur detail on the photos of the bag, I was in a rush. Of course, there will be more to display in the future, and I'll take other shots of the bag.
What do you think of my revamped handbag and outfit?
Do you have any kimonos?
