Fancy Things Friday

March 3, 2017

This Fancy Things Friday is all about the subtle slay, with an assortment of pieces that take a look to an all-new level:

1. Gals, not only is ombre killer on hair — it also suits jewelry quite well. Exhibit A: this stunning Ombre Chain Necklace that gracefully runs the spectrum from gold to black. Definitely one of my favorite color combos, black and gold are a match made in heaven. Spread the love by pairing this necklace with a daring all-black jumpsuit. (missselfridge.com)

2. Turn a basic tee into a timeless look, with this darling Montana Square Scarf. The fringed hem and mélange of patterns make this piece a win-win on all sides. (anthropologie.com)

3. This Scale Top is giving me Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons, with a touch of Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman. Needless to say, it’s fierce AF. Stunt heavy on ’em in this top, paired with a pencil skirt or a tapered cigarette pant and a stiletto heel. Perfection! (shopakira.com)

4. Cozy up to this luxurious Oversized Sweater from Genuine People. The red color is powerful, but the piece also comes in off-white, if you’re more mellow. A sweater like this is key in transitioning from winter to spring, as it’s perfect for layering. (genuine-people.com)

5. Ty Hunter, stylist to Beyoncé, makes his foray into fashion design with his athleisure line, Ty Hunter by Reflex. Honestly, every single piece (I’m talking all 23 of them!) in this line is a must-have, but this Reflex Maritza Pencil Skirt (and matching Reflex Tina Crop Top, of course) stole a piece of my heart. The stripes set in different directions adds a dimension of playfulness that I can get into on the way to the gym or even out on the town. (six02.com)

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

1. These Geometric Trick or Treat Black Suede Lace-Up Heels by Glamorous certainly live up to the brand’s name by giving us an extra dose of sass. The chiffon lace-up straps add flair, and don’t even get me started on the ombre rose gold block heel! Game-changer! (lulus.com)

2. Double your pleasure. Double your fun! I’m not talking about Doublemint Gum here. I’m referring to these darling two-toned Round Two-Tone Oversized Sunglasses, spotted on Genuine People. Not feeling the black and white? These bad boys also come in clear and leopard, brown and black, green and black, and blue and black. (genuine-people.com)

3. You know what it is! Make it plain by rocking this bold Pink Have My Currency Crewneck, which cleverly disguises the lyrics to that Rihanna jam that was so popular, even your mom sings along. (shop.nylon.com)

4. Stand tall in these Ruska Jeans in Mini Pinstripe Black and White by Motel. Vertical stripes elongate, so make sure you traipse all over the place with these edgy pantaloons on. I’d keep it cas(ual) and pair these jeans with an oversized sweater and a bootie. Done and done! (motelrocks.com)

5. March to the beat of your own drum with this far-out-there Love Your Shapes Tunic. The print is fun and fancy-free. Perfect for a festive Friday! (wildeunicorn.com)

Get into this super-cute batch of swoon-inducing goods and wares in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. A curtsey is in order when addressing a piece as elegant as these stacked Bourbon & Boweties Black & Labradorite Stone Bracelets. It features marbled stones, lustrous glass pearls and inky-black crystals, wherein each piece could be deemed the real star. Since this boho-chic bracelet combines multiple pieces, you can really get creative with the layering. Hop to it! (nordstrom.com)

2. This Taupe White Envelope Clutch from DeAlmeidaDesigns is definitely something to write home about. The killer color combo of white and taupe fit nicely in this darling little package. It’s large enough to carry the essentials yet stylish enough to elevate an ensemble. (etsy.com)

3. This Meridian Sweater-Jacket in Stripe will transition smoothly from summer to fall (eeek! time flies). Color-blocking is here to stay, friends, and the stripes effortlessly add a smidge of razzle-dazzle. It’s the quintessential lazy-day frock: Just throw on a pair of jeans (boyfriend or skinny — take a pick), a tank, some flats and this jacket, and you’ll look lovely. (madewell.com)

4. Asymmetry is at its finest with this Belted Wrap Midi Dress. The different hem lengths and stripes give off a certain sporty vibe (hey now, Sporty Spice!) but could look equally stunning if dressed up. I’m digging the choice of the all-white (daaaamn, Daniel. back at it agin) sneaker here, too. (genuine-people.com)

5. Lavender, black, white or autumn: Take your pick and traipse through the city while wearing the sweetest Kimchi Blue Meryn Ruffle Babydoll Top. That ruffle tho! Plus, I enjoy the high slits on the slides. As the sun gradually sets, break out a wedge or a bootie to play up the night-on-the-town factor. (urbanoutfitters.com)

Get into this swoon-worthy batch of goods and wares in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. What better way to let them know that you are a gift than to rock this baller Quela Gold Ring, with the most darling bow detail. This dazzling piece is the perfect accessory for a cocktail party dress. (ruegembon.com)

2. Picasso, baby! How rad is this Paint Palette Clutch from the rommydebommy Etsy shop? It’s a full-on party that’s a prime piece for self-expression. Wear this clutch with a sleek, subtle black dress or run wild with patterns. Either way, you’ll be great. (etsy.com)

3. Sometimes you just gotta stunt on folks. This ultra lavish, elegant Lavish Alice Split Back Cape Dress is just the ’fit to give it to them. This smart dress is structured yet whimsical, and I’m here for all of it. (asos.com)

4. Hot ticket alert! These Michael Kors Casual Pants are deeply discounted over at Yoox. Get them while they’re hot. There’s lots to love about these pantaloons, but I’m partial to the stripes, which elongate. Crucial for vertically challenged ladies like me. They just scream for a pop of color. Anything would work, really. Play around. Try something new. (yoox.com)

5. Be still my heart! I’m having genuine feels for this Genuine People Red Fit + Flare Velvet Mini Dress. Glad to see that crushed velvet is making a comeback! “What is this? Velvet?” You already know! (genuine-people.com)

Get into another batch of gotta-have-it Christmas-inspired (MERRY CHRISTMAS!) goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. In the words of my boys Hall and Oates, “It’s you and me forever.” Yes, this Sarah half sequined clutch will have you smiling and rejoicing in the fact that it makes for a splendid staple night-out purse. Not too much sparkle but lots of versatility (peep the removable crossbody strap). I think she’ll make several appearances this Christmas and well into the new year. (thegooddanger.com)

2. Move over, blue suede shoes. There’s a new diva in town and it goes by the name of Belanger Loafers, thanks to the incomparable Jeffrey Campbell. These red suede numbers just scream “Christmas cheer.” Spread it with each step you take, be it at a holiday party, New Year’s Eve bash or on your first day of work in 2016, ’cause, hey, who says bright shoes are only for the last two weeks of the year? Not feeling so flashy? These kicks also come in (a pale-ish) pink, navy and grey. (shopbop.com)

3. Did I just transport back to the Gatsby-art deco era or what? This gorgeous vintage-inspired Gold Crochet Dress has me wanting to hear live jazz at a speakeasy as I sip on some absinthe. But more likely, you can find me wearing this exquisite floral-detailed dress as I wait for the ball drop. (modandsoul.com)

4. If variety is the spice of life, then the earrings found in this Posts Parade Set are the equivalent of a kicked-up gingerbread cookie: sweet yet spicy. They’re all quite darling, but my personal fave is the large crystal cluster, which adds a lovely bit of holiday sparkle to any outfit. (anthropologie.com)

5. Now that it’s officially winter, let’s not be shy about rocking those cold-weather pieces. This White Black Geometric Printed Scarf can warm my neck and enhance my ‘fit any day of the week. I’d love to see just how many different prints I could pull off while wearing this accessory, a la the legendary Iris Apfel. (genuine-people.com)
