Fancy Things Friday

January 28, 2016

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

1. Front Row Shop was all, “I am woman; hear me roar,” when it concocted this Pink Asymmetric Zip PU Jacket. Edgy and fierce with a feminine touch, because, hello. Pink. It’s the details that do it for me here: the notched lapels and the ribbon zipper pulls. Plus, the asymmetric look is on fleek — just like your auntie’s haircut circa ’89. (frontrowshop.com)

2. These Mountain Post – Peaks Sterling Silver Stud Earrings from TheAngryWeather are giving me serious winter feels, as they’re reminiscent of snow-capped mountains. Chilly willy! The silver lining here is that these silver showstoppers are handmade with love. (etsy.com)

3. They say El Niño is gonna show up and show out this winter. While we wait for the little-big fella to arrive, check out these Riff Raff Rain Boots from Nasty Gal. It’s literally where the rubber meets the road. Wear these fun guys out when the weather outside is frightful. But, hey, splashing in puddles with these would be so delightful! No doubt, they’ll keep you high and dry. (nastygal.com)

4. Remember when dark-skinned Aunt Viv danced for her life that one time in dance class, showing those haters how it’s done? (Still one my favorite moments from Ms. Petty LaBelle herself, Janet Hubert, although her recent readings have made me reconsider which reigns supreme.) Well, you can bring that look to life with this curve-hugging ribbed Little Miss Popular Jumpsuit in Rose. Just be sure to nail it with a statement necklace and a strappy heel, and snap in the face of any shade that comes your way. ‘Cause you cute and you know it. Yaaass, Queeen, yaaaasss! (fashionnova.com)

5. Math was never my strong suit, but this Black Geometric Print Bomber Jacket could make me fall in love with geometry. The black-and-white pattern is eye-popping and the faux leather shoulder patches help bring this stunning jacket home. Doesn’t it just exude power? (riverisland.com)

Get into another batch of gotta-have-it Christmas-inspired (MERRY CHRISTMAS!) goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. In the words of my boys Hall and Oates, “It’s you and me forever.” Yes, this Sarah half sequined clutch will have you smiling and rejoicing in the fact that it makes for a splendid staple night-out purse. Not too much sparkle but lots of versatility (peep the removable crossbody strap). I think she’ll make several appearances this Christmas and well into the new year. (thegooddanger.com)

2. Move over, blue suede shoes. There’s a new diva in town and it goes by the name of Belanger Loafers, thanks to the incomparable Jeffrey Campbell. These red suede numbers just scream “Christmas cheer.” Spread it with each step you take, be it at a holiday party, New Year’s Eve bash or on your first day of work in 2016, ’cause, hey, who says bright shoes are only for the last two weeks of the year? Not feeling so flashy? These kicks also come in (a pale-ish) pink, navy and grey. (shopbop.com)

3. Did I just transport back to the Gatsby-art deco era or what? This gorgeous vintage-inspired Gold Crochet Dress has me wanting to hear live jazz at a speakeasy as I sip on some absinthe. But more likely, you can find me wearing this exquisite floral-detailed dress as I wait for the ball drop. (modandsoul.com)

4. If variety is the spice of life, then the earrings found in this Posts Parade Set are the equivalent of a kicked-up gingerbread cookie: sweet yet spicy. They’re all quite darling, but my personal fave is the large crystal cluster, which adds a lovely bit of holiday sparkle to any outfit. (anthropologie.com)

5. Now that it’s officially winter, let’s not be shy about rocking those cold-weather pieces. This White Black Geometric Printed Scarf can warm my neck and enhance my ‘fit any day of the week. I’d love to see just how many different prints I could pull off while wearing this accessory, a la the legendary Iris Apfel. (genuine-people.com)

1. Party over here! Thanks to this Lee Coren Confetti Envelope Clutch, you can bring the party with you wherever you go. This Lord & Taylor clutch has rife with all kinds of razzle-dazzle goodness, but not in an over-the-top way. (shoptagr.com)

2. These Cluster Marquis Pearl Studs are for the woman who makes elegance a priority. Make a bold, luxurious statement with these gems framing your beautiful face. Werk, queen! (fallonjewelry.com)

3. With its sequin top and velvet (“What is this? Velvet?!”) skirt, you’re in for a memorable night while rocking this Lotty Babydoll Dress in Tinsel Lace by Motel. If you’re in the mood to live dangerously, throw on a bright heel to take the look to even greater heights. In this case, I’d go with cobalt blue. I’m spying a potential New Year’s Eve ensemble. (motelrocks.com)

4. These pointed toe smoking shoes are smoking hot. Kudos to Sole Society for making glitter sophisticated with these sparkly, fun Cammila numbers. Has me thinking, “Please watch your step, ’cause I’m feelin’ myself.” #hitthequan (solesociety.com)

5. Tobi has done it yet again with its lovely Within Due Time Hoodie Top. The tulip hemline and slight cowl neckline are elements that make this sweater a pleasant step apart from the norm. There’s thumbholes, too! (tobi.com)

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! (pixiemarket.com)

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. (oliveandpiper.com)

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. (revolveclothing.com)

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. (shopbop.com)

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. (needsupply.com)

1. It’s like Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde with these Half and Half Quilted Front Jeans from Go Jane. From the back, these look like your run-of-the-mill skinny jeans, but the front is full frontal with loads of sass. (gojane.com)

2. Gold and cubic zirconia go hand in hand in these dainty Melinda Maria Remy Gold White CZ Pod Stud Earrings. I’m a huge fan of the perfectly imperfect shape of the triangles, which are quite endearing and elegant. (maxandchloe.com)

3. Exclusive to Mossman Clothing, The Epitome Of Stealth Skirt is as sly as a leopard waiting to pounce on its prey. Be the fiercest belle of them all in this super fun piece. (mossmanclothing.com.au)

4. Sometimes you just gotta let the boo-la-la-las know what’s up. I think they’ll get the memo with this Lovers + Friends Hello Lover Sequin Graphic Pullover. I personally would layer this sweater with a collared shirt and throw on a pair of patterned pants, just to stunt a little. (dailylook.com)

5. New Look’s Blue Floral Print Dial Watch will do wonders for keeping you on time and on point all year round. (newlook.com)
