swept away by tassels

What I want NOW:


I am simply obsessed.  I saw this pair of shoes in a recent Nordstrom catalog and died.  Pals, we've graduated from your grandpa's old tassel loafers into something {new & fresh}.

After seeing those, I went to Nordstrom and saw another pair of shoes I absolutely need.  They are mint green flat sandals with tassels.  But, while shopping, I was dissuaded from buying them and ended up purchasing a more 'reasonable' and 'practical' sandal that I could wear with more things. You can find them here. (Screw practical.)
here's a pic of my purchased sandals...along with some colorful accessories I'll be sporting this spring and summer.
Here's the problem though....I cannot find these green sandals ANYWHERE.  I don't remember who made them.  I just remembering LOVING them.  I think about them at least once daily.  Which means, I need to go back and get them right?  I think {yes}. (If anyone can find them online, please please PLEASE let me know!!)

In the meantime, here are some other cute ways to wear tassels this season.  Suffice it to say, I want all.

Dolce Vita- Damita Suede Flat Sandal

Steve Madden- Tarrtan Oxford
Dolce Vita- Idalia Sandal

DV- Dino Gladiator Sandal
Rebecca Minkoff Flame Weave Leather Satchel

Elliott Lucca Woven Leather Hip Pouch

Windy Mink Gothic Revival Earrings
Oscar de la Renta Beaded Tassel Earrings
Anthropologie Sprouting Tassel Necklace

And that's all I've got for ya, folks!  I hope you are just as inspired by these tassels as I am.  I mean, what can be more trendy and fashion-forward than a classic redone? 

all my love,
