Fancy Things Friday

June 23, 2017

Are you ready to get snatched for the summer? Look no further than this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. This Vero Moda Floral Ruffle Cut Out Swimsuit is giving me “La Isla Bonita” meets “California Girls” plus a dash of summer lovin’. There’s so much to love in such a small package: the floral print, the ruffles that give a taste of peplum and the cut-outs. I might even throw on a pair of cut-offs and a pair of bright orange heels and stunt on ’em while out on the town. Say I won’t. (asos.com)

2. If the best things come in small packages, you’ve hit the jackpot with this darling Abbie Envelope Crossbody. At 6″ x 9″ x 1″, this bag is just big enough to carry the essentials. This one’s for all the Minimalist Mandys out there. This bag also comes in Ivory and Blue (a sky-like hue) for those looking for some pizzazz. (anthropologie.com)

3. You’ll never guess what type of journey awaits with this darling Learning to Fly Navy Blue Jumpsuit. I’m into the cinched waist and flowy fabric that leads down to the elastic ankles. This piece shows just the right amount of skin with the adjustable halter back, too. This jumpsuit will have you looking flawless with minimal effort — a dainty gold necklace and an open-toed heel will go a long way in completing the look. (lulus.com)

4. Take a bite out of this juicy Orange Side Split Midi Dress, courtesy of Miss Selfridge. Something about this pop of color commands attention. The side split also helps catch eyes. I’m here for this tangy burst of flavor. Yummerz! (missselfridge.com)

5. H&M is on to something with this polka-dotted Cotton Dress. It’s a prime example of how simplicity is key to creating a classic look. What you can’t tell from this view is that there’s a cut-out section at the back with ties. Hey now! (hm.com)

Sweater weather is in full swing, and this Fancy Things Friday highlights a few you gems you definitely won’t want to miss:

1. I almost forgot we were in the dead of winter when I saw these whimsical Make Great Rides Flats. They make me want to put on some petal pushers or a maxi skirt and ride my bike through the park on a breezy spring day. Who am I kidding? Alright, I do live in SoCal, so that scenario is possible pretty much 365. But these retro flats would be lovely all year long! (modcloth.com)

2. Can’t commit to one color for your next go-to bag? Look no further than this luxurious Reversible Vegan Crossbody Bag in Kelly/Taupe, which dares to be different by giving a girl like you options. Other color vibrant combos include Ivory/Snake, Red/Nude, Brown/Nude, Blush/Taupe, Emerald/Tan and Tan/Grey. (freepeople.com)

3. Way to give the blast from the past “dickey” a new lease on life, Free People. Meet the Mock Shirt With Scallop Collar — the dickey’s much cooler, chicer cousin. Accentuate those curves by layering on a statement necklace that peeks out from beneath the collar. (cosstores.com)

4. Sometimes less is more, and this Ultra Long Zip Hoodie has certainly gotten the memo. It’s basic but bold. The length sets it apart from your run-of-the-mill hoodie, which comes with front pockets and a drawstring hood. This sweater also comes in black, which gives me an indisputable Yeezy vibe. Bring on the rain! I know Monki’s got me covered with this daring and functional piece. (monki.com)

5. Gals, I like big bows and I cannot lie. This you already know, but this NEHU Bow Detail Ribbed Jumper by Ted Baker made me squeal with delight at first glance. I also appreciate the unexpected choice of placing the ostentatious embellishment on the shoulder. (tedbaker.com)

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

1. Cross my heart, hope to buy! Feast your eyes on this stately Oval Crossbody Bag from Zara. I’m digging the two-toned color palette. Go rogue and remove the shoulder strap — it’s equally fashionable. (zara.com)

2. Circle up, ladies! Keep those UV rays at bay in style. These Round Sunglasses have a muted, light-beige tortoise-esque shell frame and a purple-ish tint. I suspect that these shades will work nicely well into fall. (hm.com)

3. Pixie Market presents femininity at its finest with this darling Pink Off the Shoulder Shirt. I could go a number of ways with this one, but I’m torn between stepping out with it in a pair of slim cigarette plants or a svelt pencil skirt. (pixiemarket.com)

4. Splurge a little on this dazzling Short Sleeve Wrap Dress by COS. The speckled print gives off a quintessentially California girl vibe, and the embossed, textured fabric keeps things interesting. Go against the grain and wear this piece open like a jacket, or buttoned and layered with a collared shirt — oooooh! or a turtleneck. (cosstores.com)

5. OK, ladies, now let’s peep Refomation. No, seriously. You’re gonna fall head over heels for this delicate Peggy Top in Blush. The embroidery floral detail pops against the lightweight silk charmeuse fabric. It’s the perfect blouse for the girl’s girl. (thereformation.com)

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

1. Why hello, Sarah Jessica! Very Last Detail lives up to its name with this darling Sarah Jessica Clutch in Black. The devil’s in the details, and I am over the moon for the gold accents and tribal icon. An added bonus is the versatility this piece affords. Wear it across the body, over one shoulder or as a clutch with the chain tucked in, and you’re ready to step out “Sex and the City” style. (verylastdetail.com)

2. You gotta risk it for the biscuit, folks! Lazy Oaf and Poppy Lissiman know exactly what I’m talking about with their Biscuit collab sunglasses, which are a daringly calculated risk with the dual black-and-white marble acetate and wild print. Plus, the black gradient lenses allow you to partake in an all-day baewatch with the object of your affection being none the wiser. It’s giving me “Saved by the Bell” circa ’91 swag and I’m here for every ounce of it. (poppylissiman.com)

3. Stick a bow on it, ’cause this Bib Dress is a real gift. The blue and ivory stripes have a certified nautical vibe, and the baggy fit makes me want to get real cozy. I’d go casual with the styling here and pair this frock with a low-top red Chuck Taylor or classic Vans. (cladandcloth.com)

4. All hail the queen! I’m talking about one of the greatest to ever do it, Sade Adu, who gracefully adorns this ill Queenin’ Tee from Zoe Love Designs. I mean, she has captured the hearts of generations, from my pops and uncles to J. Cole, whose only regret was being too young to date her. My love is king for you, Queen Sade! (zoelovedesigns.com)

5. And speaking of queen ish, feast your eyes on this regal Feathers Kimono Dress. The bold gold metallic feathers scream royalty, elegance and confidence. Compliments to Symbology for knowing a woman’s body and designing features that accentuate it in all its glory. The plunging neckline, the slit and the cinched waist? Here for all of the above.

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)
