In With The New….

It’s been a while since I’ve posted on the blog and for that I am sorry! A lot has changed since I first started the blog. I started the blog over two and a half years ago as a way to release my inner fashion obsession. Fashion Without Borders has played a huge part in my life and I am so grateful to have had it. But a lot has changed over the years. My personal style has changed, my interests and my goals as a writer. I’ve been struggling trying to restart the blog but couldn’t find the interest. It’s been a battle trying to decide where to go from here and that’s when I realized Fashion Without Borders was no longer fitting into my life. As a result this will be the last post I write on this blog. I am so grateful for my followers and the opportunities this blog has brought me over time. It is hard to move on but I know I’m on the bigger and better things.

And what are those bigger and better things? Well for one I’m starting a new blog. One that will fit my personal style and interests that I have now. My new blog On The Fringe will be launching July 22nd.

Coming Soon...

Here’s a little blurb about what to expect:

On The Fringe is a style inspiration blog written by the leather obsessed, hippie hugging style enthusiast Sophie Annaliese. Sophie Annaliese Fredericksen was the former creator and writer of Fashion Without Borders. She has expanded her love of fashion, fringe and the occasional cocktail to create a style bible of sorts for the fashion starved girl.  On The Fringe is a watering hole for the free spritied girl, the girl who isn’t afraid to be daring, the girl who wears her flower crown with pride and the girl who is living life On The Fringe!

I have been so blessed for everything Fashion Without Borders has brought me and I am sadden to have to leave it’s fans. But I hope many of you will be following me to On The Fringe.

Thank you all for everything!



We are back!!

You can now jump up and down with enthusiasm because Fashion Without Borders is back and with full force. I apologize for the hiatus but with school and being the Editor of Her Campus UGA I had very little time for FWB. But with summer here and my days a little less preoccupied Fashion Without Borders can officially return to being apart of your daily life… starting Monday!!


So much has happened during my long hiatus. The most exciting of them all is the new addition to my family. Meet Chunk! My 12 week old Lab/Bulldog mix puppy. He is both a bundle of joy and terror. I’m sure you will be seeing more of him and the ridiculous fashion I put him in!

Feel free to comment on any topics, trends or questions you would like for me to focus on in future posts. I look forward to once again being your daily dose of fashion.


Featured on Smashion

Hey guys! Sorry to be MIA lately. I’m starting up a new online publication at school called Her Campus UGA (check it out) and I’ve been busy with that. But I promise I will start updating the blog regularly very soon.

In the meantime I get interviewed by Smashion to be featured in the Smashion lounge. I absolutely love the interview and feel honored to have the opportunity. So go check out the interview and look forward to more regular posts!

Fast Forward to Fall

H&M’s Fall Lookbook has me lusting for fall to be here. I can’t wait to bundle up in cozy sweaters and boots (my favorite footwear). I’m ready for the leaves to be changing and for all that is glorious about fall to begin. But in the mean time while the temperatures are still way above 80, I will just lust over fall collections and start planning my fall wardrobe.

Here are a few of H&M pieces that have made my fall wish list. Plenty of cozy sweaters with a few new boots and a whole lot of cognac and blouses.

A Sweater You’ll Want to Take a BITE Out Of!

Sweaters are classic fall fashion but this year in Paris sweaters have been given a whole new twist. Move over edible panties, here come edible sweaters.

During Paris Fashion Week, Models at Bless showcased edible knitwear. Not only did they wear the knitted-vests but they also munched on them. The edible knit-wear is made of colorful, spaghetti-like jellies. There were also accessories, such as a cup-shaped cocktail ring for dipping sauce. This unique display of fashion is unlike anything I’ve seen before. What’s next…. edible pants? I sure hope not!
