Fancy Things Friday

February 12, 2016

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

1. Kate! You never cease to amaze me. Shouts out to Kate Spade for singlehandedly being responsible for keeping ladies’ wrists dainty and fun throughout the years. This ‘Tiny Metro – Bow’ Leather Strap Watch in Black/Mother of Pearl is so precious, I literally. CAN. NOT. Too much sweetness to take, and if you prefer a different flavor, don’t fret because this beauty also comes in Vachetta (Pink) and Red. (nordstrom.com)

2. Greetings and salutations to Rachel Stewart, who I just discovered. You have to check out her designs! I’m crazy in love with this Two-Sided Triangle Clutch from her Rachel Stewart Jewelry imprint. Just when you thought this party-in-a-bag couldn’t get any more lit, it goes ahead and flips the switch to reveal a leopard print. That’s right! This clutch is double-sided. Double the excitement. Double the versatility! Double the props from admiring gal pals. (rachelstewartjewelry.com)

3. I thank my lucky stars for this Best Years Surplus Jacket—Lucky from Gypsy Warrior. This one’s for the girl who’s all about keeping it real, unabashedly dishing out swag and providing a smidge of spontaneity. Fingers crossed! This one’s a keeper! (gypsywarrior.com)

4. A little on the softer side, this Oh My Love Bette Davis Applique Flower Romper is darling and cute as a button. London-based label Oh My Love should be commended for its great attention to detail here, as this little number features a semi-sheer textured short-sleeve top with a banded crew-neck and short-sleeves. (urbanoutfitters.com)

5. Thanks to Topshop, I have an official “easy like Sunday morning” staple jacket. This Knit Boyfriend Jacket is for those days when you’re in need of warmth and comfort. I need it in my life. (topshop.com)

1. Polka dots make me happy. These Dots Mid Top kicks via BucketFeet would definitely put a little spring — heck, perhaps a kick ball change or two — in my step! These fun ones were designed by Carrie Van Hise, a textile artist based in NYC and Barcelona. (bucketfeet.com)

2. I feel like me and Kendra Dandy, the innovative mastermind behind Bouffants & Broken Hearts, are kindred spirits. Her work just speaks to me. I was so excited to discover that some of her prints are available in scarf form from Printed Village. Trust me. They’re all dope. But the Citrus and Stripes scarf is ah-mazing, perfect for adding some pizzazz to an outfit or spicing up a handbag. So many possibilities! And don’t even get me started on headwrap options. (printedvillage.com)

3. Who you know fresher than Joe? Riddle me that. This Stripe Flare Dress from Joe Fresh has a modern classic feel, thanks to the super flattering silhouette. Hey, sometimes less is more. (joefresh.com)

4. By now, you may have noticed a common theme in this week’s post: patterns/prints. While the other items have bold patterns, this Wilfred Lavande Dress in Heather Black has a more subtle print. More specifically, it’s a softly structured Italian ponte fabric with stretch. Get ready to turns heads with this spicy ensemble. Looking at you, deep V-neckline and exposed front zipper. (aritzia.com)

5. This Fine-Knit Printed Jumper from Cos speaks for itself. You don’t need to add much more to make it pop, which makes it the ideal casual Friday or lazy Sunday sweater. (cosstores.com)

1. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen anything quite like these Lovestruck collaboration oxfords-meet-booties from LoveMade and Solestruck. I’m intrigued. They look much better on. If the polka dots aren’t your cup of tea, these masterpieces come in pink neon black and cheetah. Hurry! They’re selling out. (solestruck.com)

2. The ruffles found in these Sashay into the Sun Swimsuit Bottoms elevate this bikini bottom to a whole new stratosphere. But no need to get out of this world when these sassy bottoms belong on the beaches. P.S. Summer Solstice is tommorrow. Yippee skippy! (modcloth.com)

3. Call me crazy, but the Inaya Aztec One Shoulder Playsuit, with its bold print and daring color palette, takes my mind to a modern take on “Bedrock beauty.” Go with me for a sec. Reimagine “The Flinstones” in this day and age. Wouldn’t this be something that a grown-up Pebbles would wear out with her girls? Anywho, take this look from day to night by adding a belt and some heels. (missguidedus.com)

4. Say “hello hello” to these dainty and delicate Tiro Tiro Circle/Slash Studs. (tirotiro.com)

5. This Dress Lily Stripes Print Chiffon Scoop Neck T-Shirt has “me” written all over it. The styling possibilities are so vast! I’m thinking yellow leather joggers. Do those even exist? (dresslily.com)
