Fancy Things Friday

September 2, 2016


Get into this “say it ain’t so — summer, please don’t go” batch of goods and wares in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. I happened upon the jewelry brand Passiana recently, and I. Am. Hooked. This Aqua and Opal Crystal Collar Necklace is just one of many pieces that struck my fancy. The aquamarine, opal and clear crystals form a trifecta of elegance, style and grace. (

2. Show off how flossy you are with this bold Lynley Ear Crawler Set. The piece that lines the ear is sure to turn heads, while the stud piece brings balance. Wear this set proudly any and everywhere. (

3. Bring on the beauty, Boden! The model nails this darling Hattie Skirt look by pairing it with a chambray shirt. But the styling doesn’t end there. Get real profesh and wear it with a tailored button-down blouse to the office, or let your wild child flow and pair it with a crop top. I mean, it is Friyay after all. (

4. J. Crew knew exactly what it was doing when it unearthed this stately City Trench. This coat is a quintessentially classic staple, bringing versatility to your wardrobe all year long, really. I’m partial to the more traditional Nut Brown hue, but I’m also warming up to the Streetscape Green Op shade. (

5. Get all prim and proper with this dainty Sadgill Shirt Dress. Don’t miss the button-down front and frilled placket. That’s where the magic is. Rock this sweet dress with (what else?) a killer pair of patterned flats, and charm your way through the day. (

Fancy Things Friday

January 22, 2016

We’re knocking on February, and you know what that means: Valentine’s Day! Hate it or love it, this “holiday” got me inspired this week. Get into this batch of must-have V-Day-esque goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. How romantical! “I love you more than all the stars.” (*swoon) What kind of lady doesn’t like having sweet nothings like that spoken to her? This All the Stars Bracelet by Cooperative De Creation is a reminder of just how beloved you are. A delicate handcrafted piece, you can also feel really special wearing this bracelet knowing that it was made in a small batch with raw materials from Paris and Bali. (

2. Or maybe you’re that type who likes love the hard way. You know — with a little edge. This leather Heart Fringe Pouch by Rebecca Minkoff is just that. The little gem also comes in a more subdued, pinkish Guava hue. Gals, go ahead and get your preorders in because it looks like this one will sell out! Go ahead and treat.yo.self to some fine leather goods. (

3. This Scarla Peplum Sweater serves up double the sass, as it can be worn with a subtle scoop neck as pictured or with the deep V-neck on the opposite side. Sometimes options are a girl’s best friend! (

4. If you want to get real literal about Valentine’s Day, step out in this fierce Trench Warmer Belted Coat from Nasty Gal. It’s red, it’s bold and it’s smoking hot! Wear it open or with the belt. The world’s your oyster. (

5. Bring some swag and sophistication to your notion of a suit with this Vanessa Suit Set by Jessica Rich. It’s giving me a touch of Janelle Monáe with the black-and-white color scheme. I’m here for all of it: the lapels, the stripes along the side, the buttons and the tulip bottom. (
