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

1. These All Black Fishscale Flats are really all white, but that’s quite all right. Now I’m totally in the know that fishscale texture is a thing (where do they come up with this stuff?!), and I’m here for all of it. There’s a distinct retro vibe to these flats that’s got me craving batwing sweaters and acid wash denim. (anthropologie.com)

2. What happens when you fuse grit with glamour? You get these daring Logan Gold Stud Earrings in Platinum Drusy. Simple yet so complex, these earrings will elevate any look. (kendrascott.com)

3. Textures and patterns and warmth. Oh my! Could this Knit Sweater in Pink Melange be any more perfect? The sleeves are long and puffy, almost reminiscent of a Victorian-era blouse, and the knit pattern just screams “fun times.” Pretty in pink, for realsies! (hm.com)

4. Carefree and flowy, this lovely Petites Ivory Spot Wrap Dress is a reminder that spring is on the horizon. I’d pair this piece with some espadrilles, a floppy hat or a wool fedora (you know — play with fabrics), an oversized clutch and a delicate charm necklace. Wear this one to a park picnic with the boo wop or an upscale brunch with the gals. The world is your oyster! (missselfridge.com)

5. Show off those gams and make the boys blush with this Thigh Hi And Hello Curved Hem Dress in Blush. This GoJane creation is a game-changer. I’ve never seen a bodycon-esque dress with a curved hem. It hugs all the right curves and helps put your best leg forward, if you catch my drift 😉 (gojane.com)

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. (polyvore.com)

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. (woolandthegang.com)

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. (missselfridge.com)

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). (joefresh.com)

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. (zara.com)

1. I am absolutely head-over-heels in love with these Jeffrey Campbell In Love Leather D’Orsay Flats. Why, you ask? The two-toned dynamic duo of tan and black. You can never go wrong. Obvi. (urbanoutfitters.com)

2. Artitzia advises that this Sunday Best Dashner Dress be saved for when you’re feeling particularly coquettish, and I concur! The flowy cap sleeves and fit-and-flare silhouette are particularly flirty. Hey, boys! (aritzia.com)

3. It rained a good amount (well, at least for Southern California in the tail end of summer) earlier this week, and for the first time in a long time, I didn’t know what to wear. Not a good predicament to be in at 5 a.m., scrambling to get dressed and out the door for work. But I digress. I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that fall, and chillier weather, is upon us. However, this swanky Mono Check Duster Jacket actually has me looking forward to autumn and winter. Plus, the vintage feel is an added bonus. I spy small pockets of houndstooth! (missselfridge.com)

4. Look like a walking masterpiece in this stunningly abstract Brush It Off Painted A-Line Midi Skirt. It paints a lovely picture of a avant-garde statement piece that commands attention. (gojane.com)

5. Way to play the wild card with these fun Leopard-Print Slacks, H&M! The possibilities are endless with these pants: day or night, work or play, heels or flats, neutrals or a pop of red — you catch my drift. (hm.com)

1. Stop the presses! These Paules heels from Aldo make quite the statement with its black-and-white polka dots and pale teal strap. The daring appeal of these strappy sandals would make me want to live dangerously and pair it with something unexpected, like a red or orange sundress. (aldoshoes.com)

2. Meet the talented Janessa Leoné. This Henningsen wool and lambskin hat is an effortless, classic beauty. It’s giving me quintessential film noir dame in the best sense possible. (janessaleone.com)

3. Miss Selfridge fuses naughty (think nautical) and nice with this Petites Stripe Pinny Dress. I predict sunshine, sand and beach umbrellas in this dress’ future. (missselfridge.com)

4. X marks to spot in this extra edgy X-It Through the Jumpsuit. You can’t see it from this image, but this exquisite number features a racer back with cut-outs. (gojane.com)

5. Let’s face it. I’m Too Cool For You and this tee proves it. Of course, you gotta bring it when you make such a brazen statement. You’ll prove them right, whether you go the tomboy route with some high-top Chuck Taylors and camouflage-print shorts or the girly route with a pair of skinny jeans, a loud lip color and bright pump.

1. Have style, will travel! I’ve gotten a serious case of wanderlust, but since my bank account won’t permit me to see the world at the moment, this Alviero Martini 1a Classe Oblong Scarf will have to do. (yoox.com)

2. Mint, I just can’t quit you! This minty fresh Layla Clutch is a lovely sight to behold. (oliverbonas.com)

3. I say “heck yes!” to this Beccgirl Zip-Front Paisley-Patterned Playsuit from YesStyle. I refuse to believe that summer is coming to a close. Nope. Don’t wanna hear it. Therefore, I’ll wear my shorts and rompers like there’s no tomorrow. (yesstyle.com)

4. Since I have no need to back-to-school shop any more, I’ll just imagine I’m giving my 14-year-old self a gift. These Champion Polka Dot Lace kicks in raspberry pink get an A+ in my book. Also, Keds has free shipping and up to 50 percent off its summer styles. Get in there! (keds.com)

5. Greetings and salutations, Miss Selfridge (*does curtsy)! I’m way late to the party on this site, but I’m pleased to have met her acquaintance. First order of business: making this Pattern Skater Dress mine. (missselsfridge.com)
