Fancy Things Friday

December 18, 2015

Get into another batch of gotta-have-it goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. Giddy up! If these Yosabina Patch Pony Flat Ankle Boots by Eeight (E-I-E-I-Oh snap!) don’t make you gallop with delight, I don’t know what else will. Pair these kicks (more like kick in the pants, amirite?!) with an all-black ensemble to let the pony print speak for itself. (

2. Don’t let go of this darling Hold Tight Clutch by Wool and the Gang. First of all, great brand name. Secondly, the detail on this fun little number is stunning. Thirdly, this is the perfect sized bag to hold all the essentials: cell phone, lipstick, keys, etc. Oh, and it’s available in a range of shades. (

3. “Bundled up” doesn’t have to mean “bummed up.” Leave it to this Scratchy Mono Duster Jacket to serve up some serious style while also keeping you warm. The black-and-white pattern just screams for a pop of color, so take heed, ladies. (

4. Now that I think of it, this Thick Shaker Knit Sweater would pair nicely with that duster jacket. Or, hey, go without. This red number has enough spunk to rock as a standalone anchor to an outfit. The ribbed detail sends the message that it’s about to get real cozy up in here (up in here). (

5. This Mini Herringbone Dress is both elegant and sassy. Show them legs! And good call on layering, Zara! The collared shirt really brings the look home. (

1. With the weekend — and most importantly, summer — upon us, it’s time to think about travel. Look no further than this Weekend Bag in Natural Static by Baggu to hold all your essentials. It’s got a unique pattern, which will set it apart on the baggage claim belt. Or if you can’t bear to part ways with this weekender, it’s overhead-bin approved! Now go see the sights, in style. (

2. These Nike Sportswear Air Command Force Sneakers are so ’90s, and I love every part of it! If the 1990s taught us anything, it’s that black, white, pink and teal are a recipe for dopeness. Be great with these on your feet. (

3. Private Party has all the pop culture and hip-hop references in wearable form, and you’re all invited to partake. Set your summer off right with this Trap Queen Swimsuit, which pays homage to Fetty Wap’s jam. A close second on my list to cop is the “With My Woes” joggers, a nod to that boy Drake. (

4. Joe Fresh’s Tan Mini Skirt has a mod-meets-art-deco feel, which would be right at home on a day date to an art gallery or museum. (

5. Live on the edge while wearing this Fringing Panel Faux Suede Mini Skirt in Black. So many styling possibilities: a crop leather jacket or a crop top, ankle booties or a strappy heel. All are welcome on the suede parade! (

1. Polka dots make me happy. These Dots Mid Top kicks via BucketFeet would definitely put a little spring — heck, perhaps a kick ball change or two — in my step! These fun ones were designed by Carrie Van Hise, a textile artist based in NYC and Barcelona. (

2. I feel like me and Kendra Dandy, the innovative mastermind behind Bouffants & Broken Hearts, are kindred spirits. Her work just speaks to me. I was so excited to discover that some of her prints are available in scarf form from Printed Village. Trust me. They’re all dope. But the Citrus and Stripes scarf is ah-mazing, perfect for adding some pizzazz to an outfit or spicing up a handbag. So many possibilities! And don’t even get me started on headwrap options. (

3. Who you know fresher than Joe? Riddle me that. This Stripe Flare Dress from Joe Fresh has a modern classic feel, thanks to the super flattering silhouette. Hey, sometimes less is more. (

4. By now, you may have noticed a common theme in this week’s post: patterns/prints. While the other items have bold patterns, this Wilfred Lavande Dress in Heather Black has a more subtle print. More specifically, it’s a softly structured Italian ponte fabric with stretch. Get ready to turns heads with this spicy ensemble. Looking at you, deep V-neckline and exposed front zipper. (

5. This Fine-Knit Printed Jumper from Cos speaks for itself. You don’t need to add much more to make it pop, which makes it the ideal casual Friday or lazy Sunday sweater. (
