It's quite groovey. But I do wonder about the longer term wearability. The fringe is fun and more casual and would look terrific with jeans and a simple top. Not sure how great it would look with summer dresses and shorts. I also think it's a bit of a stretch for the office.
Seeing the Neiman's pic, I immediately loved it! It just looks so fun and casual!!
But then I went to the BV website and saw the mod pic...nope. It just looks weird when it's being worn; I think the fringe is too long, too thick, and I don't like how each piece of fringe is attached with a stud.
For me, this bag looks unfinished. As if after weaving it, someone forgot to trim the excess leather strips. I would be tempted to get out a pair of scissors. It looks unbalanced with all the strips that visually weigh it down. I do agree that it might work with the long strips as trim on an unwoven bag.
