I wore both of these ensembles to fashion shows last month and I have to say my favorite part about both of these is that neither "dress" is an actual dress. The first little number is a vintage Burberry wool liner from a trench coat and when I found it I couldn't wait to wear it as a vest but thought it would look really freaking cool belted as a dress. The second look is actually a belted kimono and I can't take credit for this because my girls at fab'rik had the idea to make it into a dress. Its not hard to see I'm crushing on all things fringe right now....and have recently acquired more....oopsies.

  2. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...I am obsessed with both of these looks..what a great find. I bought a liner once and wore it as a vest myself ;)! That kimono takes the cake is stunning! It's urban but with a boho vibe, I am in love!!!!!! Gotta check out this store! Honestly, I never thought I would want to own anything with fringe but these pieces are sooooo up my alley....gorgeous Brooke!
