Treasure Hunting: Terrific Tassels

Hello friends! Today I’m introducing a new weekly feature called Treasure Hunting in which I share with you some of the goodies that have caught my eye recently. This week’s theme: tassels! I adore tassels! So let’s get start, shall we?

This lovely lamp from Ballard Designs would look equally charming in a beachy-chic or light & bright transitional setting. Even the cute little finial gets in on the overall design.

I love all the pretty beaded tassel earrings popular these days, but most of them are so long! I’m not a shoulder duster kind of girl so I was thrilled when Bauble Bar introduced a mini, and to my mind, more wearable version of their piñata tassel drops. They come in gem and regular versions and an array of colors. But this turquoise pair is making me think ahead to summer.

Denim hems all over the place these days! High, low, multi-level, it seems like anything goes. These très cute tassel hem jeans from Topshop for Nordstrom are a fun way to try out the trend. Sub in a bright shoe and sashay down the street in style.

Are you thinking about zhuzhing up your bed after the worst of winter is over? Maybe something bright and playful? This tasseled duvet cover & shams from PB Teen might be just what you’re looking for. The tassel trim comes in six different color options but I think the navy against the crisp white takes this set from girlish to grown up. And as a bonus, the set can be monogrammed when you order! Tassels & a monogram? Score!

If you’re looking for a touch of richness for your decor, this pillow cover from Pottery Barn has you set. The look of an ancient Persian rug crafted out of sumptuous velvet with jaunty little tassels at the corners. Surely there’s just the spot in your home that could use a little glamming  up with this gem.

And lest you think all tassels are inherently feminine, take a look at this suede throw pillow in rich cinnamon from West Elm. This one would be quite at home in any man’s desk chair, reading chair, recliner 😖 or man cave.

Now this one gets me on two levels, a tassel & animal print! I’m sure many of you are familiar with the beautiful clutches from the brand Clare V. Well, you can get a similar look for a fraction of the price from Etsy seller ljcdesignss. Use it as a clutch. Use it as a tablet case. Use it to pack your jewelry for traveling. The array of colors, patterns & sizes is mind-boggling! And for that added bit of personalization, you can pick from a multitude of tassel colors! This beauty, but with a green tassel, will be heading my way soon as a case for my iPad.

And last, but certainly not least, I am in love, love, love with these charming denim D’orsay smoking slippers from Talbots! I would wear these from right now until the heat of summer demands that we free the toes and then break them back out in the fall. So much cute in one pair of shoes!!
