friday's fancies #53.

It's finally Friday! Today is my last day in Indiana before heading back to the Ocean State...truth be told, I'm excited to get home, but I'm not ready to leave my family just yet. Thankfully, my mom is recovering well and we're back in the Midwest just after Christmas, so I'll survive, I guess ;)

Today's Friday's Fancies is all about the color red, a festive hue for the holiday season but also a very important color for the fight against AIDS. Since yesterday was World AIDS Day, it only seemed fitting
to make this week's theme fashionably INSPI(RED). {See my post from yesterday for details on how
to support (RED) in their battle to create an AIDS free generation by 2015!}


1) My Milly madness continues with this Alpine Embroidery Dress! I simply adore the deep cherry red and the beautiful beading on the neckline.
2) For a night out on the town, this little Kate Spade Dara Turnlock Crossbody Bag would be the ideal place to store my iPhone and lipgloss. Instagram can hold me over when I can't carry my DSLR!
3) Holiday parties make me think sparkle, so I knew I had to include these Kate Spade 'Sparkle' Fishnet Stockings. Though I don't have a party to go to this weekend, I'm always thinking of ways to jazz up my outfit and these beauties would do the trick.
4) I doubt I'll ever own earrings worth as much as these Ileana Makri 18-karat White Gold and Diamond Stud Earrings, but I allow myself in Friday's Fancies ;) 
5) Toggle coats are always on my wish list, so it came as no surprise this Burberry Brit Hooded Wool-Felt Duffle Coat called my name. The gray hue is super versatile and would make a lovely addition to my coat closet.
6) These Gucci Betty Patent Leather Mary Jane Pumps were a throwback to some Mary Janes back in the day, but they had quite the grown-up twist with the slight platforms.


Need some holiday cheer to get you through this Friday? Stop by a {little} dash of ash for her 12 Days of Christmas series...my red+green list was featured yesterday and the rest of the line-up is stellar :) Many thanks to those of you linking up today! Your posts always make my Friday so much better :) For those of you who chose red, thank you for spreading the awareness about (RED) and their AIDS relief efforts. Use your blog name in the "title" box to make sure you get the credit you deserve for your post. 

Be sure to tune in on Monday morning--I have another fabulous giveaway 
coming that you won't want to miss {trust me!}. Enjoy your weekend!

  29. I love this outfit, especially the purse and coat! And since I used to sell Stella & Dot, I recognized some similar earrings at a much lower price point ($24).
