Fancy Things Friday

1. There can literally be hearts all over the world, a la Chris Brown, with this darling The Getaway Duffle Bag – Extreme Supercute Hearts edition. This hearts-patterned bag is perfect for a weekend getaway with the one you love or a quick jaunt to Vegas with your girls. (

2. Not to be all matchy-matchy, but this statement tee from Tees in the Trap complements the scheme of all these other snazzy Fancy Things Friday goods and wares to a T. And with a statement as trill as I Love God and Trap Music, you’ll get plenty of compliments from those who can relate to you, you riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. You’re not alone! (

3. Mic check, 1-2-1-2! Don’t miss out on this preppy-friendly Check PU Collar Top. The built-in collar is just asking for a bedazzled, bejeweled necklace to kick it up several notches. (

4. Absolutely stunning is how I would describe this glamorous, sleek Jarlo High Neck Maxi Dress With Open Back and Frill Detail. The high collar, bow, open back and peplum? Perfection! (

5. It’s not hard to see why the The Abstract Pant slays. It takes something as commonplace as a black copped pant and cranks it to a level 10 with the dropped crotch and tie waist. Sophistication, comfort and ease at its finest. I’m here for all of it, AYR (All Year Round). (

1. This Sue Navy Striped Jumpsuit from Pixie Market takes the traditional pinstriped suit and makes it hip by adding an unexpected mesh lining. Watch out now! (

2. Olive + Piper’s Melia Stud Earrings have a certain vintage quality that you can’t find everywhere. The subdued sparkle has just enough pizzazz to spice up a basic outfit, but has just enough shimmer to work for a nighttime look. Seriously, run, don’t walk, over to the website and get familiar with this brand’s stunning accessories. You’re welcome. (

3. Pretty in pink? More like pretty in peplum. Amirite?! This Peplum Mini Dress, courtesy of Oh My Love, also features pleats on the back, presenting me with an offer I could not refuse. (

4. Two words: peaked hem. Yaaaas! This Blaque Label Striped Crop Top is a definite head-turner but leaves just enough to the imagination. Pairing it with a high-waisted skirt is genius, by the way. (

5. The Classic Rose Gold & Grey Watch by The Horse is a classic beauty. It’s so clean and simple that this could work well for everyday wear. (

Outfit of the Night: Flirty and Free for 30

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.” 3 John 1:2

I had to dress it up a bit for my 30th birthday on Monday. After having a wonderful weekend in the Bay Area, my BF, some friends and I celebrated at Mai Tai Bar in Downtown Long Beach. I’m in love with this shade of coral! It looks great on my skin, if I can say so myself. Of course, I went with my tried-and-true gold accents to complete my look. If you can’t tell, I’m welcoming 30 in with open arms. Get over here, you big galoot!
