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

1. Cross my heart, hope to buy! Feast your eyes on this stately Oval Crossbody Bag from Zara. I’m digging the two-toned color palette. Go rogue and remove the shoulder strap — it’s equally fashionable. (zara.com)

2. Circle up, ladies! Keep those UV rays at bay in style. These Round Sunglasses have a muted, light-beige tortoise-esque shell frame and a purple-ish tint. I suspect that these shades will work nicely well into fall. (hm.com)

3. Pixie Market presents femininity at its finest with this darling Pink Off the Shoulder Shirt. I could go a number of ways with this one, but I’m torn between stepping out with it in a pair of slim cigarette plants or a svelt pencil skirt. (pixiemarket.com)

4. Splurge a little on this dazzling Short Sleeve Wrap Dress by COS. The speckled print gives off a quintessentially California girl vibe, and the embossed, textured fabric keeps things interesting. Go against the grain and wear this piece open like a jacket, or buttoned and layered with a collared shirt — oooooh! or a turtleneck. (cosstores.com)

5. OK, ladies, now let’s peep Refomation. No, seriously. You’re gonna fall head over heels for this delicate Peggy Top in Blush. The embroidery floral detail pops against the lightweight silk charmeuse fabric. It’s the perfect blouse for the girl’s girl. (thereformation.com)

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

1. This past week has been sending serious desert vibes, as it’s been a bit of a scorcher. Hence, this lovely Cactus Gold Necklace. It’s straight and to the point and would dazzle popping out from a V-neck tee or a romper. Also, shout out to my new desk cactus, Penelope, the belle of the ball. (wanderlustandco.com)

2. I can’t even with these Vegan Shot in the Dark Sandals by Seychelles. So much to adore! First of all, you know black and white is my jam — always a treat in striped form. Secondly, the slingback and open-toe front bring out the playfulness. These also come in a darling chambray, if you’re having a desire for denim. (freepeople.com)

3. Do a slightly different take on the traditional red, white and blue this Fourth of July with these fun, sporty burgundy Lyocell Shorts. If you’re not sold on this hue, get into the denim version. Options! Major key. (hm.com)

4. Summertime sass never looked as good as it does in this Rust Twist Front Tunic a la River Island. The cut-out detail says, “I’m ready to party!”, and the twist embellishment just chimes in with a “Turn up!” Now this dress is speaking my language. Wear this ensemble boldly with some peep-toe wedges. (riverisland.com)

5. This Floral Fit and Flare DSress is the epitome of ladylike elegance: flirty, demure and dainty. The flowers placed throughout are like a breath of fresh air and the cut-out back adds a welcome element of style and surprise. (pixiemarket.com)

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

1. Shine bright like a diamond in these dazzling Diamond Brunch Sunglass from Free People. Unlike the name of the company that produced these gems, Crap Eyewear, these stunna shades are a quality find! (freepeople.com)

2. Now this is what I call puttin’ on the glitz, folks! These Pointy Gold Strap Flats are just the right blend of pizzazz and elegance. These chic suede numbers will take a look from Plain Jane to Off the Chain real quick. Rock these flats with a cigarette pant or a midi skirt to give them their due shine. (pixiemarket.com)

3. Get all warm and cozy in this ultra-snuggly oversized Layne Sweater from UNIF. The red stripes pop amid the grey and black plaid pattern like a crimson-colored kiss. Muuaaaah! (unifclothing.com)

4. Step aside, Charlie Brown. There’s a new black-and-yellowed sheriff in town and it goes by the name of ‘Zig Zag’ Sweater by Something Else by Natalie Wood. Here, the designer’s intentionally playful and carefree style make for the perfect sweater for a daytime gallivant. (shopkoshka.com)

5. Kudos to Modern Citizen for giving pinstripes a modern, sleek new lease on life with this darling Channing Striped Tie Blouse. If you wanted to be extra matchy-matchy, look no further than this darling Paola Striped Swing Skirt. Also, the wraparound tie adds an unexpected bit of flair to this charming striped crop top.
