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. Friends, meet Mipacha. Handmade in Peru, it’s apparent that its shoes, such as the Cavillaca Alto Llama Aviacion, are each carefully crafted with love. I mean, feast your eyes on the detailed print and leather laces. An added bonus is that every pair sold in the online store comes packaged with a hand-woven bracelet and an optional backpack made from Mipacha’s residual material. (mipacha.us)

2. This Trapeze Embossed Blouse from My BFF Couture has all the frills, and I can’t argue with that. This eccentric top makes quite a statement, with the floral print speaking the loudest to my heart. (karmaloop.com)

3. Topshop’s A-Line Box Pleat Dress is shaping up to be a staple for winter, as this one works with just about any occasion. Not to mention, the grey hue is versatile enough to play with myriad accessories. (topshop.com)

4. Every now and then, I like to check on what the wholesalers are talking about. This time, they made it abundantly clear that this cobalt blue One-piece Skinny Jumpsuit belongs in my closet. (lovelywholesale.com)

5. Is this from The Great Gatsby wardrobe closet? Well, it certainly looks the part, and I’m all for it. This Jazz Age Sweater Dress, inspired from the 1920s, features a pronounced black-and-white chevron jacquard print that’s just screaming for some improvisation with layers, leggings and a killer heel.

2. Darling Nikki comes out to play with this Nikki Top from Nasty Gal. This crop top with a lace floral overlay is bound to turn heads, with its navy hue popping out. Break out the stilettos for this one. (nastygal.com)

3. Party time! That’s exactly what comes to mind when I see this Doodle Print Sleeveless Dress. (chicnova.com)

4. Keep things simple with this Lightstitch Tunic Dress that’s light on the frills but heavy on the charm. (madewell.com)
