Get into this “say it ain’t so — summer, please don’t go” batch of goods and wares in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. I happened upon the jewelry brand Passiana recently, and I. Am. Hooked. This Aqua and Opal Crystal Collar Necklace is just one of many pieces that struck my fancy. The aquamarine, opal and clear crystals form a trifecta of elegance, style and grace. (passiana.com)

2. Show off how flossy you are with this bold Lynley Ear Crawler Set. The piece that lines the ear is sure to turn heads, while the stud piece brings balance. Wear this set proudly any and everywhere. (baublebar.com)

3. Bring on the beauty, Boden! The model nails this darling Hattie Skirt look by pairing it with a chambray shirt. But the styling doesn’t end there. Get real profesh and wear it with a tailored button-down blouse to the office, or let your wild child flow and pair it with a crop top. I mean, it is Friyay after all. (bodenusa.com)

4. J. Crew knew exactly what it was doing when it unearthed this stately City Trench. This coat is a quintessentially classic staple, bringing versatility to your wardrobe all year long, really. I’m partial to the more traditional Nut Brown hue, but I’m also warming up to the Streetscape Green Op shade. (jcrew.com)

5. Get all prim and proper with this dainty Sadgill Shirt Dress. Don’t miss the button-down front and frilled placket. That’s where the magic is. Rock this sweet dress with (what else?) a killer pair of patterned flats, and charm your way through the day. (jackwills.com)

Fancy Things Friday

May 13, 2016

We get it. May grey is a very real thing. In an effort to keep your eyes on the sunshiny days that lie ahead, this Fancy Things Friday features some super-cute fun-in-the-sun essentials:

1. These Bali Slides from J.Crew are a Dusty Cypress shade that make me crave a desert romp. Think about it. Palm Springs when it’s 90 degrees out, and you’re lounging poolside with a refreshing drink in your hand. These sandals certainly fit (foot?) the bill for the quintessential summer sandal. (jcrew.com)

2. These Nude Slouch Bags are doubly debonair and functional. I see River Island is hip to my bag-within-a-bag swag, but these purses clearly work well as separates. Plus, the gold tone detailing adds a touch of sophistication. (riverisland.com)

3. Bring your A game to the workplace in this darling Great Gal in the Corner Office Top from (who else?) Modcloth, the foremost purveyor of all things cute and stylish. The pattern is interesting without going overboard, and the slight peplum makes me squeal with delight. (modcloth.com)

4. You gals know mustard is my jam! It’s perfect for every season and has a certain way of making my skin pop. That’s why I’m a huge fan of this Textured Sheath Dress. Dress it up or down. You know the routine! (forever21.com)

5. Doesn’t this boho-chic Ecote Fonda Striped Surplice Romper make you want to frolic? Well, at least that’s how it makes me feel! Whether it’s brunch or the beach, you’ll steal the spotlight in this extra sweet playsuit. (urbanoutfitters.com)

1. If you love smart social commentary, pop culture recaps so on point they’ll have you screaming “YAASSS!” all by yourself, and copious amounts of laughter (who doesn’t?), I’ve got the podcast for you! It’s called The Get., and it was created by my pal Ivy and her good friend Rhiana (Ovary Gang, represent!). I just love how transparent these women are and how inviting the podcast is. The Get just, well, gets me — my delight in shedding light on the most epic shadings of our day and the varying levels of foolishness in need of a good rebuking and all. It’s like these gals are right there with me in my living room. So basically get in on The Get! You won’t be disappointed. New episodes drop biweekly on Wednesdays. (www.wearetheget.com)

2. A tip of the hat to the good people over at J. Crew for bringing this luxurious Wide-Brimmed Felt Hat With Leather Band to the masses. With some over-the knee boots, a bold lip and this hat, you couldn’t tell me nothing! (jcrew.com)

3. Doesn’t this super cozy Maronie Shawl Cardigan look how a warm hug feels? Ah, drink it in. This sweater is rife for opportunities for layering. Make a piece like this one of your staples this season. (hautelook.com)

4. You know by now that I go ga-ga for d’orsay flats. Mix in a variety of patterns and textures and I’ll swoon. These dazzling Elsemma flats had that effect on me. These fun shoes can elevate a plain look to plain dope, and I need them in my life. That is all. (justfab.com)

5. Hey now! Whether you wear these Crepe Cigarette Trousers in Red around the office or out on the town, you’ll be making a bold statement. Pow! (www.missguidedus.com)

1. You may not be able to recreate that epic hologram, but ‘Pac can live on in your everyday life with this dope Lil Bullies ‘All Eyez on Me’ Lapel Pin. It’s the perfect way to pay homage by reppin’ the homie. (digitalgravel.com)

2. I had to check my eyes when I first saw this Summer Breeze Bag by Jump for Paper. It’s not an illusion. This fun 3D bag has a certain comic-book quality to it, which also makes it an ideal carry-all while you’re drinking in what’s left of this summer. (jumpfrompaper.com)

3. This Nasty Gal Nina Pleated Dress is a nice “little black dress” with some edge. I’d even dare to call it a freakum dress. The panels let a little bit of mesh peek through, but it’s all back business on the opposite side. Hey now! (nastygal.com)

4. I’m enamored with these vibrant Love Birds Earrings from Melody Ehsani, who can do no wrong, in my book. Such a cute statement piece to liven things up. Tweedle tweet! (melodyehsani.com)

5. Good looking out, J. Crew. This Structured Flutter Hem Tee is that must-have casual Friday look, when you want to take it easy but need to add some spice. (jcrew.com)

Thrifted Thursday: Christmas Haul, Part I

January 8, 2015

This year, “Thrifted Christmas” with my bestie boo, Vettie, was the best it’s ever been. I’m one blessed gal! This first part of my haul features accessories and shoes she copped for your girl.

thriftedchristmas5

Vettie knows I love a gold accent, which is why I’m so jazzed about these vintage earrings. I don’t have any earrings with the silver-and-gold color combo, so I can’t wait to style them. And I appreciate the variety of textures in the pair with the snakeskin print and gold border.

See more of these exquisite thrift finds after the jump!

1. This week’s heatwave has turned my mind toward fun in the sun and swimwear. I’m about ready to make a splash with this tropical-looking Mikoh Barbados Striped Bikini Top. (net-a-porter.com)

2. To cap off this year’s National Small Business Week, I’d like to introduce you to ARC of LA. The name of New York-based designer Abigail Rose Chapin’s exquisite line of leather bags is an homage to her years spent in the great city of Los Angeles. I’m bummed that I missed the Echo Park Craft Fair, where her bags were on display but I’m glad I found them online. And I must say, she’s got quite the assortment of patterns, sizes and colors. This Medium Grey/White Diamonds Hand-Printed Horizontal Pouch is to die for. (arcofla.com)

3. “Sí,” “oui,” “hai” and “是” are what I say to this Hugo Guinness for J. Crew “Yes” Tee. I can’t get enough of handwriting and quirky fonts like the one on display here. (jcrew.com)

4. Simplicity seals the deal for this Sofia Nautical Stripe Pleated Dress. Bring on the yacht parties and floppy hats! (ravifamous.com)

5. Summer just wouldn’t be complete without a cool slice of watermelon. H&M pays tribute to the time-honored sweet treat in this Cropped Tank Top. (hm.com)
