Tinsley Mortimer Loves the Fringe Clutch

Apr 22 2010 • by Roselle

I am not a huge fan of Tinsley Mortimer, well known New York socialite and fashion entrepreneur. But whenever I do chance upon her photos, I always take a moment to look at what she’s wearing – from the dress, to the purse, down to the shoes.

One thing I have noticed is that she loves wearing fringe clutches. And just how much does she love the fringe? Well, why don’t I just simply let the photos below tell you:

Get the picture? This lady sure has quite a collection of fringe clutches.

I can’t blame Tinsley for being a fringe fetish. A fringe always adds flair to even the simplest of purses. Call it panache or subtle flamboyance, it basically brings art and character to a boring piece of accessory (or even clothing).

That, plus the fact that a fringe always appeals to every girl’s bohemian side makes it a worthy embellishment to obsess over.

If you’re a fan of the fringe like Tinsley here, here are some fringe clutches to fall over:
