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

1. Cross my heart, hope to buy! Feast your eyes on this stately Oval Crossbody Bag from Zara. I’m digging the two-toned color palette. Go rogue and remove the shoulder strap — it’s equally fashionable. (zara.com)

2. Circle up, ladies! Keep those UV rays at bay in style. These Round Sunglasses have a muted, light-beige tortoise-esque shell frame and a purple-ish tint. I suspect that these shades will work nicely well into fall. (hm.com)

3. Pixie Market presents femininity at its finest with this darling Pink Off the Shoulder Shirt. I could go a number of ways with this one, but I’m torn between stepping out with it in a pair of slim cigarette plants or a svelt pencil skirt. (pixiemarket.com)

4. Splurge a little on this dazzling Short Sleeve Wrap Dress by COS. The speckled print gives off a quintessentially California girl vibe, and the embossed, textured fabric keeps things interesting. Go against the grain and wear this piece open like a jacket, or buttoned and layered with a collared shirt — oooooh! or a turtleneck. (cosstores.com)

5. OK, ladies, now let’s peep Refomation. No, seriously. You’re gonna fall head over heels for this delicate Peggy Top in Blush. The embroidery floral detail pops against the lightweight silk charmeuse fabric. It’s the perfect blouse for the girl’s girl. (thereformation.com)

Get into this super-cute batch of swoon-inducing goods and wares in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. A curtsey is in order when addressing a piece as elegant as these stacked Bourbon & Boweties Black & Labradorite Stone Bracelets. It features marbled stones, lustrous glass pearls and inky-black crystals, wherein each piece could be deemed the real star. Since this boho-chic bracelet combines multiple pieces, you can really get creative with the layering. Hop to it! (nordstrom.com)

2. This Taupe White Envelope Clutch from DeAlmeidaDesigns is definitely something to write home about. The killer color combo of white and taupe fit nicely in this darling little package. It’s large enough to carry the essentials yet stylish enough to elevate an ensemble. (etsy.com)

3. This Meridian Sweater-Jacket in Stripe will transition smoothly from summer to fall (eeek! time flies). Color-blocking is here to stay, friends, and the stripes effortlessly add a smidge of razzle-dazzle. It’s the quintessential lazy-day frock: Just throw on a pair of jeans (boyfriend or skinny — take a pick), a tank, some flats and this jacket, and you’ll look lovely. (madewell.com)

4. Asymmetry is at its finest with this Belted Wrap Midi Dress. The different hem lengths and stripes give off a certain sporty vibe (hey now, Sporty Spice!) but could look equally stunning if dressed up. I’m digging the choice of the all-white (daaaamn, Daniel. back at it agin) sneaker here, too. (genuine-people.com)

5. Lavender, black, white or autumn: Take your pick and traipse through the city while wearing the sweetest Kimchi Blue Meryn Ruffle Babydoll Top. That ruffle tho! Plus, I enjoy the high slits on the slides. As the sun gradually sets, break out a wedge or a bootie to play up the night-on-the-town factor. (urbanoutfitters.com)

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

1. These Tera Stiletto Heels in Red Faux Suede are super sassy. I’m talking Rick James and Teena Marie “Fire and Desire” sassy. The cutouts on these shoes are a hit, and the gold heel adds a pop of added flair. (publicdesire.com)

2. Kudos to Mango for making this Small Knot Bag happen. It’s petite but it packs a punch stylistically with the knot and chain. The nude color makes this bad boy versatile, so while this bag plays the background, feel free to jazz it up with a bold eye or bright lip. Knotty by nature, amirite?! (mango.com)

3. I’m all wrapped up in the subtleties found in this darling Katie Wrap Detail Shift Dress. The asymmetrical hemline is playful, and this Blush piece is a prime candidate for a day-to-night look. For work, I’d rock a dainty charm necklace and D’orsay flat with this dress, then at night, set things off with a statement necklace, cropped moto jacket and a leather bootie. But the world is your oyster. (boohoo.com)

4. Strut your stuff in these vibrant Pixie Mid-Rise Ankle Pants in Robbie Red. The color just screams summertime madness, and the cut is just begging for a funky pair of flats. Leopard prints, stripes, polka dots and cutouts would work well there. Run wild! (oldnavy.com)

5. This Primula Cocoon Cardigan by Moth looks uber-cozy. It’s perfect for a chill night in and is a great layering opportunity. (anthropologie.com)

Get into this swoon-worthy batch of goods and wares in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. These All Black Fishscale Flats are really all white, but that’s quite all right. Now I’m totally in the know that fishscale texture is a thing (where do they come up with this stuff?!), and I’m here for all of it. There’s a distinct retro vibe to these flats that’s got me craving batwing sweaters and acid wash denim. (anthropologie.com)

2. What happens when you fuse grit with glamour? You get these daring Logan Gold Stud Earrings in Platinum Drusy. Simple yet so complex, these earrings will elevate any look. (kendrascott.com)

3. Textures and patterns and warmth. Oh my! Could this Knit Sweater in Pink Melange be any more perfect? The sleeves are long and puffy, almost reminiscent of a Victorian-era blouse, and the knit pattern just screams “fun times.” Pretty in pink, for realsies! (hm.com)

4. Carefree and flowy, this lovely Petites Ivory Spot Wrap Dress is a reminder that spring is on the horizon. I’d pair this piece with some espadrilles, a floppy hat or a wool fedora (you know — play with fabrics), an oversized clutch and a delicate charm necklace. Wear this one to a park picnic with the boo wop or an upscale brunch with the gals. The world is your oyster! (missselfridge.com)

5. Show off those gams and make the boys blush with this Thigh Hi And Hello Curved Hem Dress in Blush. This GoJane creation is a game-changer. I’ve never seen a bodycon-esque dress with a curved hem. It hugs all the right curves and helps put your best leg forward, if you catch my drift 😉 (gojane.com)

1. File these Swift Flats under “cute and unusual.” These Free People exclusive sling-backs include elastic detailing woven with leather, and are the epitome of a beach bummy/beach bunny sandal. (freepeople.com)

2. Tassel up, girls! This Leather Zip Round Cross Body Bag is just what we need to contain all that we need to face the day. (warehouse.andotherbrands.com)

3. Legend has it that & Other Stories designers couldn’t reach a consensus on the color options for the Wrap-Design Dress, so they chose both blue and black. … I kid! I kid! The two tones found in this wrap dress make for an elegant but eccentric look, appropriate for a day-to-night transition. Get ready for a healthy dose of double-takes with this one, sisters! (stories.com)

4. I have to hand it to Forever 21. This new batch of apparel, including this Tulip-Front Maxi Skirt, is everything! (forever21.com)

5. Now, I normally don’t list prices in these posts. But let’s just say that this super cute, super fancy Lace Dress With Waist Seam has been reduced to the dollar amount that Macklemore purports to having in his pocket. The blueish hue and lace overlay just scream, “I am royalty. Curtsey when you enter into my presence.” (zara.com)
