New year, new looks! See some hot commodities for the winter chill in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. How’s this for a statement necklace?! Leave it to Kate Spade to create the perfect blend of style and quirk in a neck piece. This Kiss and Make Up Wink Necklace surely won’t remain in stock for long. It’s on sale, so make haste! (katespade.com)

2. Look and feel regal AF with these luxurious SHINE Velvet Ballet Pumps. The gold embellishment is simply exquisite. Wear these puppies around the house with your silkiest robe, or strut your stuff on the town. Mind the gaps and watch out for puddles. These flats are dry clean only. (topshop.com)

3. This cozy FRS Wool Midi Coat With Tie Belt is just what the doctor ordered to brave the elements this winter. Wrap yourself up tight with the tie belt and keep those fingers toasty in those deep pockets. (frontrowshop.com)

4. Yo! Zara must have been reading my mind when it designed this darling Reversible Anorak Jacket. It has all that a girl could ask for in a jacket and more. You get double the fashion for the price of one coat. Switch between navy blue and mustard yellow, and take or leave the fur hood (I personally would take it). And let’s not forget about the drawstring waist, which you can cinch to give the piece some shape. Show off that hourglass, honey! Seriously, a game changer! (zara.com)

5. Simplicity is key, and this Cotton & Wool Sweater pulls it off with ease. You can never go wrong with black and white. Layer this piece to give it some personality. Or march to the beat of your own drum and wear it as is. Either way, you’ll be stunning. (stories.com)

Fancy Things Friday 

June 24, 2016

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

1. Give these Round Cut Sandals a twirl and you’re guaranteed to be hooked. ‘Round and ’round you’ll go to destinations unknown in this fancy-free footwear. I love how the circles come together to create a faux bow look. You know those are my fave. (stories.com)

2. Add a little (or a lotta) razzle-dazzle to your look with this glitzy Anapple Clutch. This beaded miniaudiere bag is demure in stature but ornate and ostentatious in its extensive beading, jewels and chains. I’d use this clutch to accentuate a little black dress or deep V-neck jumpsuit. (aldoshoes.com)

3. How sweet is this dainty Dress With Frilled Bib Front? Perfect for resort day-lounging or — dare I say — a wedding dress for a low-maintenance bride. Since subtlety is key here, throw on a simple bar necklace and your favorite stud earrings. (zara.com)

4. This Soft Tailored Blazer Dress means business. The satin shawl collar and double-breasted buttons make this piece a force to be reckoned with. But there’s room for fun when you show off those gams of yours. Pair this dress with a killer pair of heels and thank me later. (topshop.com)

5. Hot. To. Trot. That’s what you’ll be in this stunningEntrapment Dress by Rise of Dawn. I’m all over the all-over lace fabric, and the sassy sweetheart cut bodice is giving me a serious case of the swoons. Date night, here you come! (revolve.com)

1. Cue up “America the Beautiful” and throw on your best red sundress, ’cause these nautical Striped Slip-On Shoes will have you in a Fourth of July state of mind. But they’ll look just as lovely with some high-waisted shorts or a denim skirt. (cosstores.com)

2. Sometimes less is more. Raise the bar with these dainty Small Bar Studs, which can be worn every day. (stories.com)

3. If these tropical-themed Pari Print High Waisted Shorts don’t get you jazzed about summer, I don’t know what will. These shorts were made for lounging cabana-side with a piña colada in hand. (whistles.com)

4. Just as the picture suggests, this Clayton Dress by Babaton is easy and breezy! Teal is such a flattering color, and I’m not ashamed to admit that my obsession with it just won’t go away. This little number is simple enough to wear with some flats around the office, but has just enough pizzaz to dress up with some strappy heels and a textured clutch. (aritzia.com)

5. This midi Patterned Skirt by H&M brings a ton of color and flair that you don’t need to add much else to your outfit. A plain white or black tee with some sandals will do the trick. (hm.com)

1. File these Swift Flats under “cute and unusual.” These Free People exclusive sling-backs include elastic detailing woven with leather, and are the epitome of a beach bummy/beach bunny sandal. (freepeople.com)

2. Tassel up, girls! This Leather Zip Round Cross Body Bag is just what we need to contain all that we need to face the day. (warehouse.andotherbrands.com)

3. Legend has it that & Other Stories designers couldn’t reach a consensus on the color options for the Wrap-Design Dress, so they chose both blue and black. … I kid! I kid! The two tones found in this wrap dress make for an elegant but eccentric look, appropriate for a day-to-night transition. Get ready for a healthy dose of double-takes with this one, sisters! (stories.com)

4. I have to hand it to Forever 21. This new batch of apparel, including this Tulip-Front Maxi Skirt, is everything! (forever21.com)

5. Now, I normally don’t list prices in these posts. But let’s just say that this super cute, super fancy Lace Dress With Waist Seam has been reduced to the dollar amount that Macklemore purports to having in his pocket. The blueish hue and lace overlay just scream, “I am royalty. Curtsey when you enter into my presence.” (zara.com)
