Every time I shoot with Tabitha (my beautiful and super talented friend who also happens to shoot all the photos on the blog), she pokes through the outfits and asks, “anything with tassels?” It’s a running joke that just about every one of our meet ups involves an outfit with some sort of tassel embellishment. Thankfully for everyone, none are of the booby variety (don’t lie, you can’t help but think of that phrase when you hear the word tassel… or hopefully that’s not just me).
And while you may think this outfit only includes tassel earrings (which I love so much and will talk about in a sec) but this top actually has the WEIRDEST tassel embellishment ever. I grabbed it off the rack when I spotted the sleeve embellishment. I also love a light weight long sleeve top since I think they pair just as well with denim shorts as they do with jeans for fall. But then I turned it around. And what did I find but the STRANGEST little cluster of multi-colored tassels right at the hem hanging in the middle. To give you a better visual, when you’re wearing it, it looks like a bunch of tassel turds hanging right by your butt. It’s not cute. Not cute at all. Funny, but not cute.
But the top was so good (and the price was right), I bought it and totally meant to cut off the tassels in the back. I wore it one time without cutting it off and posted it in my stories on Instagram if you want to see how absurd it looked. It’s totally worth it for the sleeves though right?
