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

1. These Tera Stiletto Heels in Red Faux Suede are super sassy. I’m talking Rick James and Teena Marie “Fire and Desire” sassy. The cutouts on these shoes are a hit, and the gold heel adds a pop of added flair. (publicdesire.com)

2. Kudos to Mango for making this Small Knot Bag happen. It’s petite but it packs a punch stylistically with the knot and chain. The nude color makes this bad boy versatile, so while this bag plays the background, feel free to jazz it up with a bold eye or bright lip. Knotty by nature, amirite?! (mango.com)

3. I’m all wrapped up in the subtleties found in this darling Katie Wrap Detail Shift Dress. The asymmetrical hemline is playful, and this Blush piece is a prime candidate for a day-to-night look. For work, I’d rock a dainty charm necklace and D’orsay flat with this dress, then at night, set things off with a statement necklace, cropped moto jacket and a leather bootie. But the world is your oyster. (boohoo.com)

4. Strut your stuff in these vibrant Pixie Mid-Rise Ankle Pants in Robbie Red. The color just screams summertime madness, and the cut is just begging for a funky pair of flats. Leopard prints, stripes, polka dots and cutouts would work well there. Run wild! (oldnavy.com)

5. This Primula Cocoon Cardigan by Moth looks uber-cozy. It’s perfect for a chill night in and is a great layering opportunity. (anthropologie.com)

This Fancy Things Friday features some springtime essentials:

1. ASOS flipped the script with these darling Leonie Square Ballet Flats by going against the expected rounded or pointed toe. The bright Orange color is exactly what’s missing from my spring-to-summer wardrobe, too. All the more reason to cop! (asos.com)

2. What’s not to love about these Black Patterned Sunglasses from H&M? I’m especially partial to the gold bar resting across the top. But you knew that already. Subtle yet stunning, I’d rock these shades any day. (hm.com)

3. Simplicity is key with this Lauren 3/4 Sleeve Curved Hem Bodycon Dress. If you’re looking for some color, this dress also comes in Black, Olive, Peach, Teal, Wine (red) and Sky (blue). This is prime for summertime stuntin’. Pair this dress with a strappy heel and a colorful clutch. (boohoo.com)

4. This Lala Peplum Top by House of Ubuhle can really put some pep in a girl’s step. First off, the V cut screams “va-va-va-voom” and is perfect for a date night. Secondly, the pattern and silhouette are all about sophistication. I, personally, would rock this with a black pencil skirt. (zuvaa.com)

5. I never understood why people paid so much money to look like they literally rolled out of bed … Until now. This 1 AM Dress is so chic and stylish that I almost don’t mind the $130 (US dollars) price tag for the tousled threads. The knot detail really brings the look home! (maurieandeve.com)

Springtime vibes seemed to just find me, so I’m delighted to present an all-new batch of spring-inspired goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. Of course an Etsy shop called “A Little Vintage Store” would be right up my alley. I recently discovered this magical shop and can’t get enough of all the cuteness inside. I’m particularly partial to this Thread Drawn Cactus Necklace. (etsy.com)

2. Can I kick it? Yes, you can! Elevate your kick game leaps and bounds with these Winslow Bow Slip-ons. I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge these beautiful bows. I mean, how could you not? They have a certain Japanese, origami aesthetic about them, and you can kinda see that theme showing up in a few other items in this roundup. (theloeil.com)

3. ‘Cause I’m a laaady! (*said in Sheneneh’s voice.) The name of this My Little Lady Dress from Storets is rather apropos. It’s dainty and precious and sweet and stylish. I live for the Peter Pan collar, by the way. Complete the look by pairing this number with an ankle-strapped heel or a downright Mary Jane. It goes, trust me. (storets.com)

4. There’s something so edgy and sophisticated about this Boohoo Bow Front Crop Top. Hats off to the creative genius who thought outside the box with the placement of this ginormous bow. It really makes a statement! Like, “I’m different, yeah, I’m different.” (asos.com)

5. You’d have to be an April Fool to pass up on this dazzling FRS Yellow Crane Embroidery Kimono Jacket. It truly is a work of art … from all angles. So I’ll let its beauty speak for itself. (frontrowshop.com)

Spring has sprung, y’all! To commemorate the occasion, I present an all-new batch of vernal equinox-inspired goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. This vibrant Flap Cross-Body Bag is like sunshine in a bag. The stitch detail adds extra flair, and don’t forget there’s levels to this. The strap is adjustable to whichever length suits you. (mango.com)

2. Hey, Heidi! These stunning Heidi Gem Drop Statement Earrings are elegant and stately. They’ll have you looking and feeling like a million bucks, without breaking the bank. (boohoo.com)

3. Sweet, charming and quaint is how you’ll look rocking this dainty Bib Shift Dress in Retro Lace Ivory by Motel. This dress could work well for Easter Sunday, with some flats or a low heel, of course. Or channel your inner flower child by pairing this with a floral cardigan or headband. (motelrocks.com)

4. Vroom, vroooom! Buckle up for a wild ride with this Isn’t It Grand Prix? Dress. The automobile print makes quite the statement. For some reason, this dress is giving me serious Kentucky Derby vibes, but I also envision this for (you guessed it!) Easter or brunch. Or Easter brunch! Either way, you’ll be a beacon of style and grace. (modcloth.com)

5. Sunshine on my shoulders and this Harlyn Lemon Bustier Romper make me happy! This playsuit is ideal for a romp at the beach or an easy bike ride through the city. (shopkoshka.com)

2. The Dream Noir Earrings from Miss Wax are a pop of pizzazz that I need in my life! Black, white and gold are my favorite color palette, b.t. dubs. (misswax.com)

3. Olive never looked so sweet! These Contemporary High-Waist Pants in olive make for a perfect “office by day, turn up by night” ensemble. Plus, the drawstring waist has a way of making one look pulled together. (forever21.com)

4. The Boutique Leah Polka Dot Tulle Midi Dress is a dream come true! A dress so me, I’m wondering if the designer was stalking my daydreams. Where do I begin? The polka dots I live for. The tulle provides great fun and movement. I can picture myself twirling on the dance floor in it. Woo hoo, Boohoo! You’ve done it again! (boohoo.com)

5. I love me a jumpsuit, this I’m sure you know about me by now. This Swank Us Later Tux Jumpsuit is no exception. It’s sleek and sophisticated. The double-breasted collar says “all business,” but the plunging neckline says, “Don’t forget about pleasure.” Ooooh, and those front vanity pocket flaps are a nice touch! (nastygal.com)

Get into another batch of “New Year New Me”-inspired (HAPPY NEW YEAR!) goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. Ghanian jewelry-maker Christie Brown knew exactly what she was doing when she made this Chinaya Bib Necklace in Canary. As an avid button enthusiast, I was immediately drawn in by the layered discs of varying ankara-esque fabrics and the yellow beaded tiers that just take the piece to a whole new level. Talk about a statement necklace! This piece also comes in Gold Coast (bronze), Citron (lime green), Flame (red) and Indigo (midnight blue). Either way, you can’t lose. (christiebrownonline.com)

2. Sometimes you just have to pause and admire excellent craftsmanship. Take for instance this Saint Wide Brimmed Hat in Navy by Loéil. This structured wool fedora fat with matching ribbon trim detail is regal and alluring. (theloeil.com)

3. This Kate Belted Shawl Collar Coat is a feminine, sassy take on the traditional trench coat, and I’m here for it. This long coat can be tied to conceal a ravishing dress or opened to call attention to the layered goodness inside. (boohoo.com)

4. Nothing says “new year new me” quite like a daring outfit. Ring in 2016 with this stunning Irina Miro Ruffled Bateau Neck Mini Dress, which shows off those sexy shoulders and collar bones and leaves room for the perfect statement necklace to shine. Minimal elegance and its finest, folks. (stylewe.com)

5. Let this MOTO Clean Shirt Dress lay the foundation for a killer look. Paired with a bright pair of ankle booties, some high-top sneakers, a suede pump or a knee-length boots, this piece can come to life in a way that shows off personality and individuality, whether on a Monday in the office or a Saturday brunch. I need this staple in my wardrobe STAT! (topshop.com)

1. These ultra-swanky D’orsay Cutout Faux Suede Flats from Forever 21 came as a bit of a surprise. A very pleasant surprise. These flats look like something you’d find at Urban Outfitters or Nordstroms. Way to elevate the game, gang! (forever21.com)

2. Say what you mean to say with this darling Gemma Crystal Statement Necklace from Morning Lavender. This piece pairs well with a simple plain white or black tee, and gets bonus points because the crystals look like sweet little flowers. (morninglavender.com)

3. There’s nothing rusty about this dazzling Mara Geo Tie Waist Shift Dress, except for, well, the color. This reddish-orange dress is capable of navigating both professional and playful spaces, and could definitely transition well from day to night. Get ready! (boohoo.com)

4. Boy, oh boy! Boy London really knew what it was doing with its relaxed Women’s All Over Boy Shirt. Run wild with the styling possibilities. I see what the stylist did here by adding a feminine touch with the statement necklace. I could see myself rocking this layered with a structured jacket, dual-textured pants and a bootie — fully embracing and nodding to the masculinity of the print. (shopkitson.com)

5. Done and done! This quaint Tie-Neck Colorblocked Combo Dress kills two birds by making this a ready-made look. Shirt? Check. Skirt? Check. And how could you pass up on a secretary-style tie neck? So retro, so chic. (forever21.com)

1. Double-scooped ice cream on waffle cones, cotton candy, poodle skirts: all things that come to mind when I see these Parade You Look! Flat in Jade. They have a certain retro Americana appeal that’s super charming. Sock hop, anyone? (modcloth.com)

2. Let this Emerald Stone Necklace do all the talking for your look. This statement necklace brings it, so there’s no need to compensate elsewhere. A simple plain white (or black) T-shirt with some dark denim and you’re good to go! (hellosupply.com)

3. These Coated Denim Jogger Pants bridge the gap (see what I did there?) between tom boy and chic, and I love every part of it. (gap.com)

4. I’m on the market for a new swimsuit, and this Pop Floral Plunge Bikini Top is a top contender. I appreciate that there’s so many possibilities for bottoms. Maybe stripes? Maybe solids? Polka dots, if you’re living dangerously? (topshop.com)

5. Speaking of living on the edge, check out this daring Hannah Multi Twist Open Back Strappy Vest, perfect for festivals, beach days and casual bike rides. (boohoo.com)
