Fancy Things Friday

September 22, 2017

This Fancy Things Friday is in the spirit of protesting the impending start of autumn. Fall Equinox has decided to rear its head and, frankly, I’m not here for it! Get into my last-bit-of-summer looks:

1. Bonita Applebum, you gotta put these Bonita Drop Earrings on. These dainty yet daring earrings feature fringe and a pop of gold, and will add a little flavor to an outfit in need of some oomph. Lucky for you, if you’re not feeling the Yellow ones pictured, they come in a variety of hues, including Cobalt Blue, Fuchsia, Orange and Blush. Talk about fringe benefits. (baublebar.com)

2. These sophistifunky AVA Gem Slingback Shoes are just what the doctor ordered — a burst of sunshine, a la Vitamin D, with a touch of class, thanks to the gemstones. Try these bad boys in black for a more city chic appeal. (topshop.com)

3. The ’90s called and said, “This Acro Unitard in Abstract Floral by Motel is da bomb diggety!” For reals, there’s so much to love about this whimsical piece. For me, it’s especially the scoop back and pattern. It’s giving me a more feminine Bobby Brown “Every Little Step” unitard. The boys your milkshake brought to the yard will probably be partial to the slight side boob, but this playsuit is all about fun. (motelrocks.com)

4. In the spirit of rebelling against fall, I like where the stylist’s head was at. Pairing this super cozy ASOS Ultimate Chunky Sweater With Slouchy High Neck with denim shorts is the perfect move and just screams, “I do what I want.” It goes without saying that this piece is highly versatile, and — dare I say — will transition nicely into autumn and winter. (asos.com)

5. This sweet but bold Puffed Sleeves Dress is basically everything that a gal desires in a day-to-night-worthy ensemble, and I can’t deal. It’s like a blank canvas on which you can let your personality shine through. The possibilities are endless. Happy styling!

Fancy Things Friday

April 8, 2016

Get into an all-new batch of spring-inspired goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. Cool it now, with this crisp, cobalt blue Mini Fringe Crossbody Bag. The tan and grey versions are fine and well, but something about the blue feels extra special. Take this bag to new heights by removing the strap and wearing it as a clutch. (freepeople.com)

2. The Esi Top is unabashedly Afrocentric and I’m all for it. The pattern provides whimsy and playfulness, while the plunging back is a pleasant surprise. The top is also available in a teal green-and-white pattern that’s extra earthy and equally charming. (kedelcouture.bigcartel.com)

3. Shine on, girl! This Glisten Black and Nude Sequin Rose Jumpsuit just demands attention. The dazzling rose pattern overlay is made up from sequins, and this playsuit is elegant, stylish and versatile. (pinkboutique.co.uk)

4. The Hanalei Collar Necklace is a lovely reminder of the season we’re in. Springtime is upon us, and it lends itself to wonderful pieces, such as this stunning statement necklace featuring ultra-realistic marbled hibiscus blossoms secured by a structured gold collar and black ribbon. There’s a tropical touch that would make this necklace perfect for styling outfits for my upcoming Hawaii trip. (baublebar.com)

5. Peekaboo! I see you. This Faye Cut Out Dress breaks the monotony of the usual little black dress. This piece keeps you on your toes with the sleek cutout. The buttons and billowy sleeves tone down the sass and make for a darling frock. (francescas.com)

1. If you’re looking to stand out, take a look at these vibrant Tonka Drops Earrings. So many elements at work here: organic wood accents, crystal jewels, marble and a burst of sunshine with the reddish-orange dangling drops. And guess what. They all complement each other flawlessly! (baublebar.com)

2. Simplicity shines through with this subtle, elegant Glass Crystal Collar. Use this no-frills piece to anchor an already-fabulous ensemble or to draw attention to your gorgeous collar bones. (modandsoul.com)

3. First place, in your face! Or is it “first the worst; second the best”? Either way, you’ll stay winning with this stunning Tied for First Place Faux Suede Dress from Go Jane. The deep U neckline is sure to turn heads, while the tied bow sweetens the deal. All in all a great LBD! (gojane.com)

4. When you want to look like a domestic goddess as you’re carving into your delicious turkey this Thanksgiving, keep A Passing Prance Dress in mind. You can’t tell from this view, but the pattern features an autumn menagerie of leaping deer, curious foxes and ostentatious owls. It’s charming and super flattering. (www.modcloth.com)

5. Baby, it’s getting colder outside, and you can’t neglect those toes. Thankfully, Kate Spade New York’s Salena Fox Slippers offer warmth, style and pizzazz. The sequin accents and faux-fur lining and trim combine to make these playful, cozy numbers a hit. (shopbop.com)
