friday's fancies #47.

It's a very special Friday here on {long distance loving}! I received a fantastic suggestion from Bethani to use Friday's Fancies to honor breast cancer awareness month. My grandmother survived a battle with breast cancer when I was 15, so this is cause which is very close to my heart. I'm sure each of us has been affected in some way by breast cancer, so it only makes sense to take a week to think pink! In honor of the theme, I dreamed up a pretty pink get-up I would wear to a fundraiser for breast cancer...


1) You know I am a huge fan of Milly, so the moment I spotted this Wool-Blend BouclĂ© Dress, I knew I had found the anchor piece for this week's Friday's Fancies! Though I'm not normally a pink fan, I'm aching to hang this classic dress in my closet.
2) This Paul & Joe Harlequin Leather-Trimmed Cotton-Blend Jacket has a bit of an edge with its leather trim, which is a stunning juxtaposition against the girly pink. 
3) I loved how Betsey Johnson took something so feminine like a rose and added her personality to create these Girlie Charms Large Rose Earrings. These beauties would get plenty of wear now--and later.
4) What girl can argue with Jimmy Choo? Every girl should have a pair of fabulous Patent Platform Pumps, even if they're not Choo...though I sincerely wish they could be!
5) Typically, I am not a fan of black watches, but I couldn't argue with this Movado Small Bold Breast Cancer Awareness Watch--$50 from every purchase goes straight to breast cancer research! I love the hint of sparkle too :)

I'm so excited to see how each of you run with this theme--or the one you concocted for this week. If you're new to Friday's Fancies and want to receive the weekly heads-up, email me! I'd love for you to join the Friday's Fancies family :) Should you be linking up this week, be sure to use your blog name when you add your link in the linky tool below...you deserve all the credit you can get for your hard work!
