Fancy Things Friday

February 5, 2016

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.

Get into another batch of “New Year New Me”-inspired (HAPPY NEW YEAR!) goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. Ghanian jewelry-maker Christie Brown knew exactly what she was doing when she made this Chinaya Bib Necklace in Canary. As an avid button enthusiast, I was immediately drawn in by the layered discs of varying ankara-esque fabrics and the yellow beaded tiers that just take the piece to a whole new level. Talk about a statement necklace! This piece also comes in Gold Coast (bronze), Citron (lime green), Flame (red) and Indigo (midnight blue). Either way, you can’t lose. (christiebrownonline.com)

2. Sometimes you just have to pause and admire excellent craftsmanship. Take for instance this Saint Wide Brimmed Hat in Navy by Loéil. This structured wool fedora fat with matching ribbon trim detail is regal and alluring. (theloeil.com)

3. This Kate Belted Shawl Collar Coat is a feminine, sassy take on the traditional trench coat, and I’m here for it. This long coat can be tied to conceal a ravishing dress or opened to call attention to the layered goodness inside. (boohoo.com)

4. Nothing says “new year new me” quite like a daring outfit. Ring in 2016 with this stunning Irina Miro Ruffled Bateau Neck Mini Dress, which shows off those sexy shoulders and collar bones and leaves room for the perfect statement necklace to shine. Minimal elegance and its finest, folks. (stylewe.com)

5. Let this MOTO Clean Shirt Dress lay the foundation for a killer look. Paired with a bright pair of ankle booties, some high-top sneakers, a suede pump or a knee-length boots, this piece can come to life in a way that shows off personality and individuality, whether on a Monday in the office or a Saturday brunch. I need this staple in my wardrobe STAT! (topshop.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. Real eyes realize that these Bueller II Shades from Nasty Girl are pretty boss. The gold metallic brow bar, arms and bridge are what sealed the deal for me. These shades are a work of art, which I personally would werk the heck out of every chance I got. Sunshine day for lyfe! (nastygal.com)

2. Not sure what’s triggered my recent obsession with orange, but this Clementine Uber Clutch with embossed python texture makes me think, “If loving orange is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.” The fringe zipper accent is the right amount of fringe, too! (giginewyork.com)

3. Orange fever is at an all-time high with this Hooded Bouclé Coat. This takes your average winter coat hostage, gives it a makeover and creates a whole new persona. (yesstyle.com)

4. “Oh na na. What’s my name?” It’s Ashley, silly! I was delighted to see my name as the model for this charming Argento Vivo Personalized Script Name With Heart Necklace. But don’t fret. This online exclusive can be personalized just for you. It’s not visible from the image, but the necklace has a heart going up the left side and it’s so sweet. (nordstrom.com)

5. I’ve officially caught feelings for this Mod Striped Button Up Blouse from Love Culture. Pair this with a colored skinny jean, a pointed heel and a clutch, and you’re all set to go from the boardroom to the best night out you’ve had in ages. See you there! (loveculture.com)
