Fancy Things Friday 

June 24, 2016

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

1. Give these Round Cut Sandals a twirl and you’re guaranteed to be hooked. ‘Round and ’round you’ll go to destinations unknown in this fancy-free footwear. I love how the circles come together to create a faux bow look. You know those are my fave. (stories.com)

2. Add a little (or a lotta) razzle-dazzle to your look with this glitzy Anapple Clutch. This beaded miniaudiere bag is demure in stature but ornate and ostentatious in its extensive beading, jewels and chains. I’d use this clutch to accentuate a little black dress or deep V-neck jumpsuit. (aldoshoes.com)

3. How sweet is this dainty Dress With Frilled Bib Front? Perfect for resort day-lounging or — dare I say — a wedding dress for a low-maintenance bride. Since subtlety is key here, throw on a simple bar necklace and your favorite stud earrings. (zara.com)

4. This Soft Tailored Blazer Dress means business. The satin shawl collar and double-breasted buttons make this piece a force to be reckoned with. But there’s room for fun when you show off those gams of yours. Pair this dress with a killer pair of heels and thank me later. (topshop.com)

5. Hot. To. Trot. That’s what you’ll be in this stunningEntrapment Dress by Rise of Dawn. I’m all over the all-over lace fabric, and the sassy sweetheart cut bodice is giving me a serious case of the swoons. Date night, here you come! (revolve.com)

March 25, 2016

Spring has sprung, y’all! To commemorate the occasion, I present an all-new batch of vernal equinox-inspired goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. This vibrant Flap Cross-Body Bag is like sunshine in a bag. The stitch detail adds extra flair, and don’t forget there’s levels to this. The strap is adjustable to whichever length suits you. (mango.com)

2. Hey, Heidi! These stunning Heidi Gem Drop Statement Earrings are elegant and stately. They’ll have you looking and feeling like a million bucks, without breaking the bank. (boohoo.com)

3. Sweet, charming and quaint is how you’ll look rocking this dainty Bib Shift Dress in Retro Lace Ivory by Motel. This dress could work well for Easter Sunday, with some flats or a low heel, of course. Or channel your inner flower child by pairing this with a floral cardigan or headband. (motelrocks.com)

4. Vroom, vroooom! Buckle up for a wild ride with this Isn’t It Grand Prix? Dress. The automobile print makes quite the statement. For some reason, this dress is giving me serious Kentucky Derby vibes, but I also envision this for (you guessed it!) Easter or brunch. Or Easter brunch! Either way, you’ll be a beacon of style and grace. (modcloth.com)

5. Sunshine on my shoulders and this Harlyn Lemon Bustier Romper make me happy! This playsuit is ideal for a romp at the beach or an easy bike ride through the city. (shopkoshka.com)

1. File these Swift Flats under “cute and unusual.” These Free People exclusive sling-backs include elastic detailing woven with leather, and are the epitome of a beach bummy/beach bunny sandal. (freepeople.com)

2. Tassel up, girls! This Leather Zip Round Cross Body Bag is just what we need to contain all that we need to face the day. (warehouse.andotherbrands.com)

3. Legend has it that & Other Stories designers couldn’t reach a consensus on the color options for the Wrap-Design Dress, so they chose both blue and black. … I kid! I kid! The two tones found in this wrap dress make for an elegant but eccentric look, appropriate for a day-to-night transition. Get ready for a healthy dose of double-takes with this one, sisters! (stories.com)

4. I have to hand it to Forever 21. This new batch of apparel, including this Tulip-Front Maxi Skirt, is everything! (forever21.com)

5. Now, I normally don’t list prices in these posts. But let’s just say that this super cute, super fancy Lace Dress With Waist Seam has been reduced to the dollar amount that Macklemore purports to having in his pocket. The blueish hue and lace overlay just scream, “I am royalty. Curtsey when you enter into my presence.” (zara.com)
