Fancy Things Friday

August 12, 2016

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

1. These Tera Stiletto Heels in Red Faux Suede are super sassy. I’m talking Rick James and Teena Marie “Fire and Desire” sassy. The cutouts on these shoes are a hit, and the gold heel adds a pop of added flair. (publicdesire.com)

2. Kudos to Mango for making this Small Knot Bag happen. It’s petite but it packs a punch stylistically with the knot and chain. The nude color makes this bad boy versatile, so while this bag plays the background, feel free to jazz it up with a bold eye or bright lip. Knotty by nature, amirite?! (mango.com)

3. I’m all wrapped up in the subtleties found in this darling Katie Wrap Detail Shift Dress. The asymmetrical hemline is playful, and this Blush piece is a prime candidate for a day-to-night look. For work, I’d rock a dainty charm necklace and D’orsay flat with this dress, then at night, set things off with a statement necklace, cropped moto jacket and a leather bootie. But the world is your oyster. (boohoo.com)

4. Strut your stuff in these vibrant Pixie Mid-Rise Ankle Pants in Robbie Red. The color just screams summertime madness, and the cut is just begging for a funky pair of flats. Leopard prints, stripes, polka dots and cutouts would work well there. Run wild! (oldnavy.com)

5. This Primula Cocoon Cardigan by Moth looks uber-cozy. It’s perfect for a chill night in and is a great layering opportunity. (anthropologie.com)

Outfit of the Day: Accents of Orange

It’s officially sweater weather in Los Angeles, and I don’t know whether to smile or sulk. Summer’s the best, and unfortunately, she’s long gone. For the sake of these pictures, I’m doing the former — all smiles on a Sunday afternoon. In this Outfit of the Day, I’m coping with the colder temps by layering and lightening the mood with bursts of rich color. See more of this fall look after the jump!

“Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.” Proverbs 6:6-8

This past week I started a new job! You’re looking at the first-ever official marketing and communications assistant for 826LA! Such an exhilarating time for me. The position is a one-year contract through AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America), which is like the domestic Peace Corps. For the first time in a while I feel like I’m doing meaningful work, since I’m putting my skills and talents to use at a nonprofit writing and tutoring center that serves students ages 6 to 18. I wore this particular outfit to work on a day that the staff met to set goals for the upcoming year and review its challenges. I must say, it feels great to be a part of a team of like-minded individuals seeking to improve and maximize their effectiveness so that they can better fulfill the organization’s mission. Happy to be on board!

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1,2

I wore this casual get-up on a recent Sunday afternoon. I especially enjoyed how the various colors in the scarf are mirrored throughout the outfit, from the sweater to the shoulder bag to the shoes. If the purse looks familiar, it’s because it was featured in one of my thrifted Christmas hauls. Liz Claiborne never lets me down. Love that girl!

“Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!” Psalm 32:11

Does this sweater look familiar? Well, this is the piece found in my most recent Thrifted Thursday. Funny story: There wasn’t a tag with washing instructions so I erroneously assumed it was cotton. Boy, did I get a rude awakening when I pulled it from the dryer significantly shrunken. My plans for an oversized sweater went awry, and I was left instead with this fitted, crop-sleeve number. It’s quite all right though. When life gives you lemons … right? You’ll notice a leaf in my pocket. That was a gift picked especially for me by my nephew, Jordan.

I chose to wear the orange-ish brown sweater to last Saturday’s San Diego Padres vs. Detroit Tigers baseball game at PETCO Park, which was in my hometown, that I went to with my pal, Zita. I figured the color scheme could be applicable to either team. Also, I wore another item previously featured in my Christmas Haul, Part I post. Yes, that would be the ultra-fancy blue shoulder bag with stripes and gold hardware. Overall, I had a fantastic time at the game, complete with hot dogs, singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and cheering for Detroit.
