Fancy Things Friday

September 22, 2017

This Fancy Things Friday is in the spirit of protesting the impending start of autumn. Fall Equinox has decided to rear its head and, frankly, I’m not here for it! Get into my last-bit-of-summer looks:

1. Bonita Applebum, you gotta put these Bonita Drop Earrings on. These dainty yet daring earrings feature fringe and a pop of gold, and will add a little flavor to an outfit in need of some oomph. Lucky for you, if you’re not feeling the Yellow ones pictured, they come in a variety of hues, including Cobalt Blue, Fuchsia, Orange and Blush. Talk about fringe benefits. (baublebar.com)

2. These sophistifunky AVA Gem Slingback Shoes are just what the doctor ordered — a burst of sunshine, a la Vitamin D, with a touch of class, thanks to the gemstones. Try these bad boys in black for a more city chic appeal. (topshop.com)

3. The ’90s called and said, “This Acro Unitard in Abstract Floral by Motel is da bomb diggety!” For reals, there’s so much to love about this whimsical piece. For me, it’s especially the scoop back and pattern. It’s giving me a more feminine Bobby Brown “Every Little Step” unitard. The boys your milkshake brought to the yard will probably be partial to the slight side boob, but this playsuit is all about fun. (motelrocks.com)

4. In the spirit of rebelling against fall, I like where the stylist’s head was at. Pairing this super cozy ASOS Ultimate Chunky Sweater With Slouchy High Neck with denim shorts is the perfect move and just screams, “I do what I want.” It goes without saying that this piece is highly versatile, and — dare I say — will transition nicely into autumn and winter. (asos.com)

5. This sweet but bold Puffed Sleeves Dress is basically everything that a gal desires in a day-to-night-worthy ensemble, and I can’t deal. It’s like a blank canvas on which you can let your personality shine through. The possibilities are endless. Happy styling!

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

1. These Geometric Trick or Treat Black Suede Lace-Up Heels by Glamorous certainly live up to the brand’s name by giving us an extra dose of sass. The chiffon lace-up straps add flair, and don’t even get me started on the ombre rose gold block heel! Game-changer! (lulus.com)

2. Double your pleasure. Double your fun! I’m not talking about Doublemint Gum here. I’m referring to these darling two-toned Round Two-Tone Oversized Sunglasses, spotted on Genuine People. Not feeling the black and white? These bad boys also come in clear and leopard, brown and black, green and black, and blue and black. (genuine-people.com)

3. You know what it is! Make it plain by rocking this bold Pink Have My Currency Crewneck, which cleverly disguises the lyrics to that Rihanna jam that was so popular, even your mom sings along. (shop.nylon.com)

4. Stand tall in these Ruska Jeans in Mini Pinstripe Black and White by Motel. Vertical stripes elongate, so make sure you traipse all over the place with these edgy pantaloons on. I’d keep it cas(ual) and pair these jeans with an oversized sweater and a bootie. Done and done! (motelrocks.com)

5. March to the beat of your own drum with this far-out-there Love Your Shapes Tunic. The print is fun and fancy-free. Perfect for a festive Friday! (wildeunicorn.com)

Fancy Things Friday

July 22, 2016

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

1. Don’t these huarache sandals scream summertime fun? The vibrant yellow and green on these Tusk Sandals make me want to traipse through the jungle and bask in the warmth. The cool thing about these made-in-Mexico sandals is that they’re made with recycled parts, including rubber tire sole and woven nylon straps. Now you can feel super “green” when you’re wearing them. (dusendusen.com)

2. In a bit of a contrast, this Brings You to Your Peonies Clutch is dainty and delicate and makes me want to twirl. Overcome by rosettes, this sweet little number is the perfect accessory for a sundress or subdued maxi, and has an undeniable bridal feel. The gold chain is a nice touch, but it’s removable if you’re looking for more of a statement. (modcloth.com)

3. This Ribbed Off-the-Shoulder Top is super versatile. Sometimes simplicity is key. Oh, the places you can go with this solid piece, and oh, the styling possibilities. This one is sure to become a staple of your summer wardrobe. (hm.com)

4. How darling is this Wander Fringe Top in Foxy Brown Faux Suede? I mean, c’mon. Fringe on fringe on fringe! Of course, it piques your curiosity when you see it dangling from the bottom hemline, but it packs a punch when you see it hanging from the shoulders on the back side. So many personalities you can bring to life with this ultra-adventurous top, too. Too-cool-for-school cowgirl. Festival-ready fairy. Rarely-well-behaved weekend warrior. I’m here for all of it! (showmeyourmumu.com)

5. Channel your inner pioneer woman with this Cabello Shirt in Wilma Wash by Motel. Whether you’re home on the range having a cozy dinner or roaming with the deer and the antelope at your local watering hole, you’ll look magnificent in this shirt that toes the line between romantic and tomboyish.

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. Party over here! Thanks to this Lee Coren Confetti Envelope Clutch, you can bring the party with you wherever you go. This Lord & Taylor clutch has rife with all kinds of razzle-dazzle goodness, but not in an over-the-top way. (shoptagr.com)

2. These Cluster Marquis Pearl Studs are for the woman who makes elegance a priority. Make a bold, luxurious statement with these gems framing your beautiful face. Werk, queen! (fallonjewelry.com)

3. With its sequin top and velvet (“What is this? Velvet?!”) skirt, you’re in for a memorable night while rocking this Lotty Babydoll Dress in Tinsel Lace by Motel. If you’re in the mood to live dangerously, throw on a bright heel to take the look to even greater heights. In this case, I’d go with cobalt blue. I’m spying a potential New Year’s Eve ensemble. (motelrocks.com)

4. These pointed toe smoking shoes are smoking hot. Kudos to Sole Society for making glitter sophisticated with these sparkly, fun Cammila numbers. Has me thinking, “Please watch your step, ’cause I’m feelin’ myself.” #hitthequan (solesociety.com)

5. Tobi has done it yet again with its lovely Within Due Time Hoodie Top. The tulip hemline and slight cowl neckline are elements that make this sweater a pleasant step apart from the norm. There’s thumbholes, too! (tobi.com)
