Fancy Things Friday

January 19, 2018

This Fancy Things Friday is all about embracing the cooler temperatures with a little bit of color. In oher words it’s sweater weather with a burst of flair:

1. I love a good play on words, so this LITerature Sweater made my heart smile. I’ve been doing some more writing these days, and I’ve been making my way through some fantastic audiobooks on my commute to and from work, so I guess you could say that I, too, put the “lit” in “literature.” (cottonbureau.com)

2. With its pretty pearls and radiant ruffles, this Pearl Beading Tiered Ruffle Sleeve Jumper will definitely help you step your sweater game up. This gem also comes in Pink, Black, Green, Burgundy and White, but will turn heads in whichever hue you choose. (shein.com)

3. And speaking of making a statement, this grand Gold Feather Statement Necklace is giving me warrior princess meets buttoned-up beauty. Also, had no clue that World Market had such fanciful necklaces. Mind blown! (worldmarket.com)

4. Who says denim can only come in shades of blue? I, for one, subscribe to Zara’s belief in color. This dazzling Coloured Denim Jacket in yellow will definitely keep the winter blues away. The distressing and rips throughout add an element of badassery and boldness. And guess who’s here for it! (zara.com)

5. I wore my black-and-white oxfords so much that they’re in pretty bad shape, which is a shame because I really loved them. They went with everything! Thankfully, these sprightly Derby Tweed/Black Shoes are a(rollienation.com)

Sweater weather is in full swing, and this Fancy Things Friday highlights a few you gems you definitely won’t want to miss:

1. I almost forgot we were in the dead of winter when I saw these whimsical Make Great Rides Flats. They make me want to put on some petal pushers or a maxi skirt and ride my bike through the park on a breezy spring day. Who am I kidding? Alright, I do live in SoCal, so that scenario is possible pretty much 365. But these retro flats would be lovely all year long! (modcloth.com)

2. Can’t commit to one color for your next go-to bag? Look no further than this luxurious Reversible Vegan Crossbody Bag in Kelly/Taupe, which dares to be different by giving a girl like you options. Other color vibrant combos include Ivory/Snake, Red/Nude, Brown/Nude, Blush/Taupe, Emerald/Tan and Tan/Grey. (freepeople.com)

3. Way to give the blast from the past “dickey” a new lease on life, Free People. Meet the Mock Shirt With Scallop Collar — the dickey’s much cooler, chicer cousin. Accentuate those curves by layering on a statement necklace that peeks out from beneath the collar. (cosstores.com)

4. Sometimes less is more, and this Ultra Long Zip Hoodie has certainly gotten the memo. It’s basic but bold. The length sets it apart from your run-of-the-mill hoodie, which comes with front pockets and a drawstring hood. This sweater also comes in black, which gives me an indisputable Yeezy vibe. Bring on the rain! I know Monki’s got me covered with this daring and functional piece. (monki.com)

5. Gals, I like big bows and I cannot lie. This you already know, but this NEHU Bow Detail Ribbed Jumper by Ted Baker made me squeal with delight at first glance. I also appreciate the unexpected choice of placing the ostentatious embellishment on the shoulder. (tedbaker.com)

It’s fall, y’all! Sweater weather is upon us, and this Fancy Things Friday showcases some superb styles:

1. Feast your eyes on these ’90s Baby Velvet Platform Chunky Heels, which are surefire show-stoppers. The chunky heel and double straps provide comfort and flair, and the texture just screams of luxury. If you’re looking for a little bit of color in your life, these beauties also come in Blue, Burgundy and Mustard (on the beat tho). (gojane.com)

2. In need of a versatile carry-all? Look no further than this 116 Athletics x Will Bryant Duffel Bag. First of all, the pattern is dope. And it can function as a gym bag, overnight bag and a weekender, too. Get it while it’s hot, gang! (reach.merchline.com)

3. Wear your heart on your sleeve with this darling Petite Heart Hybrid Knitted Jumper. The delicate chiffon heart-printed sleeve made me swoon, and the ruffles are just so darn sweet. Bat your eyelashes and cozy up to the one you love in this playful sweater. (topshop.com)

4. Which brings me to my next point: Sweaters don’t have to be shapeless and bland. Au contraire, mon ami! This sassy Endless Rose Cut Out Sleeve Sweater is a prime example of a sweater with a little bit of sex appeal. The teal seals the deal, and the cable-knit? I’m here for it! (revolve.com)

5. Pull up a front-row seat to a movie of your choosing in this pullover Black Wool-blended Popcorn Sweater from Front Row Shop. A literal take on “Netflix and chill,” this sweater is all about comfort and fun — the perfect homebody frock or “casual Friday” ‘fit! (frontrowshop.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.

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. Snap! Crackle! Pop! And all the other forms of onomatopoeia because these Jadyn Sneakers in Black/White Crackle deserve all the sound effects. All of them. These kicks, courtesy of Circus by Sam Edelman, are all kinds of big-top fun. (circusbysamedelman.com)

2. That cool, refreshing drink! (Try it with your friends!) Shout out to P&C Poolside for thinking up the most exciting and ultra-specific pins to spice up my life. The latest on my radar is this Boba Tea Enamel Lapel Pin. I just wanna drink in all the awesomeness that is the delicious Tapioca ball-laced beverage. (www.pandcpoolside.bigcartel.com)

3. This New Look Denim Longline Tee is, in a word, perfect. The longer hem in the back is an added element of surprise, and the cuffed sleeves up the charm factor. Chambray all day! (asos.com)

4. What better way to ring in cardigan weather than with this Women’s Lapel Cardigan with Prints from Open Sky. I can see myself adding some pizzazz to my business casual ensemble or stepping out on the town with this fun piece. A great item for layering! (opensky.com)

5. This Classic Cable Knit Sweater makes the concept of a winter wonderland bearable–and rather stylish. The intricate cable-knit pattern will have people guessing if it came from Bloomingdales, but this can be our little secret. Once again, Forever 21 offers a sophisticated take on a staple piece (and for fewer pennies!). (forever21.com)

Thrifted Thursday: Cozy Scarf from Sunday’s Best Thrift Apparel, Echo Park

January 22, 2015

photo (12)

My pals decided to take a lunchtime jaunt to Sunday’s Best Thrift Apparel in Echo Park, and man am I glad we did! This was my first time inside the shop, but I can see why it frequently makes lists for the best thrift shops in Los Angeles. Neatly separated sections, to-die-for pieces and reasonable prices make Sunday’s Best your best bet for thrifting in the quaint neighborhood.

Peeking out from a rack on top of some jackets was this darling, cozy yellow hand-knitted scarf ($2). It was love at first sight, frankly. Not only is this scarf super cute, it does a stellar job of keeping me warm. This piece also has the ability to make lively any outfit I pair with it.

While there, I also did a little window shopping. See what else captured my attention, after the jump!
