Fancy Things Friday

January 28, 2016

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

1. Front Row Shop was all, “I am woman; hear me roar,” when it concocted this Pink Asymmetric Zip PU Jacket. Edgy and fierce with a feminine touch, because, hello. Pink. It’s the details that do it for me here: the notched lapels and the ribbon zipper pulls. Plus, the asymmetric look is on fleek — just like your auntie’s haircut circa ’89. (

2. These Mountain Post – Peaks Sterling Silver Stud Earrings from TheAngryWeather are giving me serious winter feels, as they’re reminiscent of snow-capped mountains. Chilly willy! The silver lining here is that these silver showstoppers are handmade with love. (

3. They say El Niño is gonna show up and show out this winter. While we wait for the little-big fella to arrive, check out these Riff Raff Rain Boots from Nasty Gal. It’s literally where the rubber meets the road. Wear these fun guys out when the weather outside is frightful. But, hey, splashing in puddles with these would be so delightful! No doubt, they’ll keep you high and dry. (

4. Remember when dark-skinned Aunt Viv danced for her life that one time in dance class, showing those haters how it’s done? (Still one my favorite moments from Ms. Petty LaBelle herself, Janet Hubert, although her recent readings have made me reconsider which reigns supreme.) Well, you can bring that look to life with this curve-hugging ribbed Little Miss Popular Jumpsuit in Rose. Just be sure to nail it with a statement necklace and a strappy heel, and snap in the face of any shade that comes your way. ‘Cause you cute and you know it. Yaaass, Queeen, yaaaasss! (

5. Math was never my strong suit, but this Black Geometric Print Bomber Jacket could make me fall in love with geometry. The black-and-white pattern is eye-popping and the faux leather shoulder patches help bring this stunning jacket home. Doesn’t it just exude power? (

Get into another batch of must-have goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. RVCA has the right idea. Don’t talk about it, be about it! Look like the go-getter or girl-on-the-go that you are in this Be About It Blue Chambray Jumpsuit. Make this look your own by layering necklaces and wearing a bold heel. (

2. Simplicity. Major key, as my life coach, DJ Khaled, would say. This Etched Bar Necklace has it. Take the minimalist feel a step further and wear it solo. (

3. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think that this Ivory Floral Cut Out Sweater was a one-of-a-kind thrift store find, and I’d rejoice at the steal of an item I just found. Well, either way, I’m delighted that I found such a unique piece. I love the juxtaposition of the dainty, feminine floral appliqués against the bold ribbing found on the collar, waist and wrists. (

4. Show off those gams with these sassy Vixen Double Strap Platform Heels. Wear it with a flouncy skater dress and brace yourself for all the double takes you’re bound to get. (

5. Leave it to this luxurious Zazula Biker Suedette Jacket in Teal to breathe life into any outfit missing a certain something. This piece is so versatile it’s almost unreal. Day to night. Casual and dressy. Sweet yet edgy. Fire but chill. Need it now! (

1. Check out this treacherous trio of edgy Saber Rings. Liven up any outfit with these dainty accessories, in a trifecta of colors: yellow gold, white gold and rose gold. The best part is you can wear as many or as few of these jagged little pills as you wish, pointed up or downward. (

2. These stunning ASOS SCORE Heels are quite the find. I think I’ve hit the jackpot with these simple, sleek go-to suede heels with cut-away sides. (

3. Wear this cozy pullover on a chill night with the squad because it’s nothing but crew love with this Lace Crew Neck Sweater! The burgundy panels pop under the grey sweater and add an element of surprise with this unconventional color combination. It’s a little bit of fire, ice and everything nice. (

4. Blank NYC gets badass on us with this black linen and vegan leather biker Jacket. Pair this piece with some distressed dark jeans, a bootie and a bold lip, and you’re ready for an rabble-rousing good time. (

5. However, if you’re looking to show off your softer side, look no further than this darling Lace Cut-Out Collared Dress. This fully nude lined dress with an ivory overlay is as playful as it is sweet. Go with some slide-on sandals or a nude heel depending on just how cutesy you’re aiming for. (

Thrifted Thursday: Red Biker-Style Jacket from Goodwill, Hermosa Beach

March 20, 2014


I haven’t had any luck finding a leather biker jacket, but this Minimum red biker-style jacket ($8.99) with plenty of zippers and accents was a good compromise. Not only was it in excellent condition (I may even dare to venture that it was brand new), the color is just the pop that I need in my spring wardrobe. I also enjoy the faint army green contrasted on the jacket’s interior.


But this wasn’t all that caught my eye that day. After the jump, check out some quaint finds I also discovered that day.
