Fancy Things Friday 

May 6, 2016

This Fancy Things Friday is all about black-and-white statement pieces with a pop of color:

1. When Madewell’s Tassle Time Earrings come out to play, you know it’s party time. The little bursts of fringe are nothing more than a fun adornment for your ears, but I’m here for all of its whimsy. Be sure to pull your hair up to ensure that these earrings get their due shine. (shopbop.com)

2. Stop the presses! As a matter of fact, these ASOS Publisher High Heels are bright and edgy enough to stop traffic. I can’t put my finger on it, but these open-toed heels put me in a New York state of mind. I picture Carrie Bradshaw strutting down Park Avenue in these faux suede gems hailing a cab. (asos.com)

3. Talk about deep cuts! This Inesa Polka Dot Sheer Black Chiffon and Devore Maxi Dress boasts an unabashed plunging neckline and enough razzle-dazzle to make a best-dressed list for the Met Gala, if properly accessorized. Who knew polka dots could get so sassy? (houseofcb.com)

4. You can’t tell me this Crepe Skirt Overlay Aztec Romper in White isn’t festival-worthy. It’s giving me bohemian chic in a way that makes me want to twirl (that’s where the skirt overlay comes in nicely) and sway barefoot on an open field. Who’s on board? (missguidedus.com)

5. Being bad never looked so good. Ladies, take note. This Lara High Neck Crop Top in Stripe Lace Black by Motel is the epitome of badass with a touch of class. Bonus points because I’ve never met a scalloped hemline that I didn’t like. (motelrocks.com)

1. Why spend a million bucks when you can look like it for a mere £35.00? This Light Pink Pearl Embellished Box Clutch is full-on regal glam, and I’m absolutely here for it. (riverisland.com)

2. These Speckled Delivery Flats are a testament to Modcloth’s versatility. The black-and-white pattern looks fun and very “summertime-y,” reminiscent of “The Flintstones,” in all honesty. And they don’t have that overtly “retro” flair, which kept me on my toes. (modcloth.com)

3. No shame in my game! I’d pair these Motel Sweat Pants in Art School Cream with some pumps and cami and call it a day for the chillest and illest ‘fit ever. (motelrocks.com)

4. Oh no … This isn’t your skort from the 1990s. Rather, this Origami Wrap Tie Skort brings a contemporary elegance to a piece not originally known for sophistication. (topshop.com)

5. My theory is, the bigger the bow, the brighter you glow! Get your shine on with this Sweet Doll Bowknot Lace Shirt, which has two things I adore: bows and lace. This blouse gives me visions of Janelle Monáe, by the way. (chicwish.com)

1. This Alexis Lace Crop Top looks super regal! But I like the idea of pairing it with some denim shorts for day, or a high-waisted midi skirt for night. So many options! (intermixonline.com)

2. Whether you use this Monki Casja Case as a coin purse or as a tiny clutch, it certainly packs a pleasant pop of color that would add some personality to any drab look. (monki.com)

3. Great news, ladies. The days are longer now that Daylight Saving Time is in full effect, which means summertime will be here before we know it! Yippee skippy! I’ve already started eyeing playsuits, and this Abstract Splash Printed Wrap Front Romper is definitely in the running. (axparisusa.com)

4. And so is this Lenny Playsuit from Verge Girl. The deep-V neckline and bow accent present offers I just can’t refuse! (vergegirl.com)

5. Wear your heart on your sleeve, even if it’s tiny, not unlike the ones found in this scoop-neck Mini Heart Shirred Blouse. (loft.com)
