Fancy Things Friday

January 1, 2016

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)

1. Stop the presses! These Paules heels from Aldo make quite the statement with its black-and-white polka dots and pale teal strap. The daring appeal of these strappy sandals would make me want to live dangerously and pair it with something unexpected, like a red or orange sundress. (aldoshoes.com)

2. Meet the talented Janessa Leoné. This Henningsen wool and lambskin hat is an effortless, classic beauty. It’s giving me quintessential film noir dame in the best sense possible. (janessaleone.com)

3. Miss Selfridge fuses naughty (think nautical) and nice with this Petites Stripe Pinny Dress. I predict sunshine, sand and beach umbrellas in this dress’ future. (missselfridge.com)

4. X marks to spot in this extra edgy X-It Through the Jumpsuit. You can’t see it from this image, but this exquisite number features a racer back with cut-outs. (gojane.com)

5. Let’s face it. I’m Too Cool For You and this tee proves it. Of course, you gotta bring it when you make such a brazen statement. You’ll prove them right, whether you go the tomboy route with some high-top Chuck Taylors and camouflage-print shorts or the girly route with a pair of skinny jeans, a loud lip color and bright pump.

1. Now that it’s colder, I wouldn’t mind wearing a fancy hat to warm this noggin of mine. Luckily, there’s Una Hats, which has an abundance of vintage-inspired handmade brims in an array of fabrics and hues. There were too many to choose from, but for now, this True Grit – Oatmeal Felt Western Chic Hat is my favorite. It’s so regal and old-timey. For some reason, the name Eleanor comes to mind. (etsy.com)

2. These Steve Madden Jannyce Black Suede Leather Ankle Boots were made for walking. And that’s just what they’ll do. That’s right, walking to a night out on the town, or an intimate dinner with the one you love. (lulus.com)

3. Move over, standard peacoat. This ultra sleek and stylish Frock Coat is where it’s at. The black faux leather trim on the lapels, shoulders and pockets are just exquisite. (madeleine.co.uk)

4. Hello there, HelloMolly! I don’t know if I’m late to the party but the online shop has plenty of darling items. For example, these multi-colored Puzzle Piece Pants that are just too cool for school. (hellomollyfashion.com)

5. I rep Team Natural all day every day and fully support this Nappy Dictionary T-shirt, because some people just don’t know. (globalcouture.net)
