friday's fancies #50.

A very happy 11.11.11 and Veteran's Day! I decided it was time to have a bit of a golden celebration, in honor of my 50th Friday's Fancies post! For nearly as many weeks, lovely ladies from across the world have been linking up for Friday's Fancies and you've helped to make me on very happy lady :) It means the world to me that you take the time to link up--especially in the midst of your already packed lives. Your posts provide serious inspiration and creativity, week after week. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Without further ado, ere is my outfit, fit for a golden celebration of sequin-y proportions...


1) Diane von Furstenberg has appeared countless times in past Friday's Fancies, so it comes as no surprise that this Pauletta Sequined Dress was the winner for this celebration. I adore the shape and simplicity of this dress, paired with the extreme sparkle.
2) These Bijoux Heart Chi Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Daisy Earrings kicked this outfit up a notch, without adding too much more sparkle! They reminded me a bit of a few antique pairs my grandmother left me but with a modern touch.
3) I think this Yves Saint Laurent Loulou Leather and Suede Mini Bag would be a bag that would stand the test of time. If my budget allowed for such special splurges, I'd be a happy girl...until then, I'll just admire it from afar ;)
4) A good pair of Spanx have been a friend of mine for a few years now, so I love the dimension these Trinket Tights add to this get-up. 
5) Besides the fact these Tory Burch Cicely Satin and Leather Bow Pumps were almost named after my mother, I chose these beauties because of the glimmering gold toes paired with those lovely bows. I would love to have these as a mainstay in my holiday shoe rotation! 

I cannot wait to see the gorgeous golden ensembles you pull together :) Don't forget to use your blog name when you add your link so you get all the credit you deserve for your post! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me--I'm happy to help! I can add you to this heads-up list if
you email me as well.


I'm headed to New York City tonight for a weekend with a few of my favorite people and for a little thing called blogger blitz NYC! I am giddy with excitement :) Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you Monday!

  5. I'm glad to be a part of your "golden" accomplishment! And my outfit is camel rather than gold as I am trying to "mimic" what I'll be wearing as I travel from Detriot to Chicago on my fun day in downtown Chicago, meeting up with old friends from highschool! Fun times while on vacation. PS - I love your gold number! Have a fabulous weekend.

  29. tory burchはアメリカらしいスタイリッシュを満ちているブランド品です。今、既に中国に日本に登場してきました!もうニューユークにこのブランド品を買いに行く必要はありません!海外ブランド品でも日本に入手することができます!その中でトリーバーチ クラッチはもっとも人に愛用されています!シンプルなデザインながら簡単に取り外しが可能なデザインだから色々なシーンで活躍してくれそうなのでおすすめである!結婚式や2次会、パーティー等、フォーマルな席での手持ちはもちろん、斜め掛けもOK!
