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

1. Step out with style and grace with these bold Mackie Wedge Heels. I’m especially fond of the suede and strategically placed slits. Already got your fill of the black-and-wood combo? Don’t fret. These fierce foot candies also come in Mocha (tan), Rosso (red-orange) and Natural/Pewter (cream). (kelsidaggerbk.com)

2. Say whaaaat?! No need to yell across the room. You’ll make quite the statement with this dazzling Style #0091 Gold Statement Necklace. It has tiered levels of gems and gold and screams “I’m here.” Bling bling, y’all! (lovejbyjulia.com)

3. Hi there, hi-low! It’s definitely girl-next-door meets girl-on-the-go with this Everly: Olivia Striped Off the Shoulder Dress. It has me swooning thinking of the possibilities. Beach day ensemble? Date night moment? It has cutie-patootie written all over it. (stylelustshop.com)

4. Tell us how you really feel, Tobi! This Miss His Kisses Mesh Maxi Dress is sultry and sleek. The mesh makes for a perfect nighttime frock and looks ultra fab. I see you, goddess! (tobi.com)

5. Now that’s what I’m talking about: a versatile jacket that elevates a look with ease. Take a look-see at this lovely Silence + Noise Kirra Swing Trench Coat. Oh, the layering that can take place. I’m thinking I about how I can bring this fun piece from summer into fall. Get is while it’s hot. It’s discounted and something tells me it won’t stick around much longer. (urbanoutfitters.com)

Get into another batch of “New Year New Me”-inspired (HAPPY NEW YEAR!) goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. Ghanian jewelry-maker Christie Brown knew exactly what she was doing when she made this Chinaya Bib Necklace in Canary. As an avid button enthusiast, I was immediately drawn in by the layered discs of varying ankara-esque fabrics and the yellow beaded tiers that just take the piece to a whole new level. Talk about a statement necklace! This piece also comes in Gold Coast (bronze), Citron (lime green), Flame (red) and Indigo (midnight blue). Either way, you can’t lose. (christiebrownonline.com)

2. Sometimes you just have to pause and admire excellent craftsmanship. Take for instance this Saint Wide Brimmed Hat in Navy by Loéil. This structured wool fedora fat with matching ribbon trim detail is regal and alluring. (theloeil.com)

3. This Kate Belted Shawl Collar Coat is a feminine, sassy take on the traditional trench coat, and I’m here for it. This long coat can be tied to conceal a ravishing dress or opened to call attention to the layered goodness inside. (boohoo.com)

4. Nothing says “new year new me” quite like a daring outfit. Ring in 2016 with this stunning Irina Miro Ruffled Bateau Neck Mini Dress, which shows off those sexy shoulders and collar bones and leaves room for the perfect statement necklace to shine. Minimal elegance and its finest, folks. (stylewe.com)

5. Let this MOTO Clean Shirt Dress lay the foundation for a killer look. Paired with a bright pair of ankle booties, some high-top sneakers, a suede pump or a knee-length boots, this piece can come to life in a way that shows off personality and individuality, whether on a Monday in the office or a Saturday brunch. I need this staple in my wardrobe STAT! (topshop.com)

1. Tip toe through the concrete jungle with these Leopard Walking on Sunshine Sandals by Savoire-Faire. Don’t it feel good? Why, yes. Yes it does. (shopsavoirfaire.com)

2. Zara, I think I’m in love with this Dress With Bow at the Back. The secret’s out, but the cutouts are a pleasant surprise. All bows everything is what I say. (zara.com)

3. This Nasty Gal Shark Deco Bustier Top is a work of art. First of all, it has great bones. Secondly, the attention to detail is pretty sweet. The mesh is subtle but simultaneously edgy. This saucy number also comes with a matching pencil skirt, but run wild with the styling possibilities. Tutu, skinny jeans, midi skirt. All viable options. (nastygal.com)

4. Like Drake says, “I’m waaaay up, I feel blessed.” Straight up! And I feel the same way. I’ve been beyond blessed. Shout out to God for holding me down throughout the years. This darling I Am Blessed Small Dog Tag Necklace comes courtesy of Dogeared, a contemporary jewelry line with the daintiest of trinkets. Pictured here is the silver version, but I personally am a huge fan of the gold dipped style. (dogeared.com)

5. Va va va voom, y’all! Take a look at this Rock the Bateau Black Off-the-Shoulder Dress . Stir it up, little darling, ’cause it’s about to be all eyes on you with this dress on. It’s also available in light blue. (lulus.com)
