friday's fancies #37.

Holy moly! We finally made it to Friday! This summer is going much too quickly for my liking,
but I'm trying to make the most of it :) I hope you are too! Even with autumn in my sights, I don't want
to give up on summer fashion, so that's why I'm incorporating one of the colors I keep seeing for fall
in my Friday's Fancies for this week. The beautifully brilliant red {as seen in every J.Crew catalog!}
inspired my outfit for today. I wanted something a little more edgy than I normally wear and
I think I achieved it...I hope you like it!

1) I'm seriously pining over this Emma Crossbody bag. I mean--HELLO!?--it's so cute! It's got loads of spunk and lots of character. I would love to have it in my closet. {And if you want to win your own, enter my fab bag giveaway--you could pick any from their website!}
2) For my pop of the ever radiant red, I chose this Halston Heritage Pleated Chiffon Dress. I am positively loving pleats and thought this dress was feminine and foxy at the same time! 
3) I adore earrings that make a statement--and these House of Harlow 1960 Star Earrings would not disappoint. They would bring some definite sass to this get-up. I'd also feel like quite the rockstar wearing them!
4) When it comes to heels, I want something that won't make me more clumsy than I already am. These Elie Tahari Portia Patent Leather Sandals fit that bill perfectly! 
5) This Lanvin Chunky Chain Waist Belt would be a great piece to break up the bold red of the dress--and give me a little shape too. Though the belt costs more than the dress itself, it's ok because it's Friday's Fancies ;)
Last week, longtime Friday's Fancies faithful, Jen, rocked it out and won the "likes" competition!
She's the lovely lady behind life spelled jen--a blog chock full of great inspiration and photos :)
