friday's fancies #57.

Happy December 30th! Where did 2011 go?! I simply cannot believe this is the 50th Friday's Fancies link-up! I truly count my blessings week after week for those of you who take the time to link up with me on Fridays. It would be hard to pin down the exact number, but I estimated there have been almost 2500 posts devoted to dreaming big without breaking the bank. I seriously have to pinch myself after seeing that number! I am looking forward to 2012 and all it brings...especially with Friday's Fancies :) Since we'll be ringing in the new year tomorrow, it is the perfect opportunity to craft a NYE outfit!


1) I picked up this J.Crew Drapey Sequin Tank on super sale right before Christmas--and I cannot wait to sport it tomorrow night! I nabbed a light grey sequin tank over the summer and wore it a bunch, so I knew this black version would be the ideal base for my NYE outfit :)
2) Chains are a recent obsession of mine, so this Giles & Brother Silver and Hematite Multi-Chain Necklace called my name the moment I spotted it. I liked that this piece wasn't one dimensional and really brought some spunk to this get-up!
3) These Citizens of Humanity Ava Faith Straight-Leg Jeans are a staple in my wardrobe! I love that they're slightly higher waisted and make the dreaded "muffintop" a thing of the past.
4) I simply adore the bright pop of color this Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Silk-Moire Knot Clutch brings to the table. I don't know if I could ever pull off a clutch this small {or ever allow myself to buy one!}, but it's Friday's Fancies, so it works just beautifully.
5) Adding to the high-low mix in this outfit, I can't help but love this Splendid Ribbed Cotton and Modal-Blend Cardigan. It is the perfect way to bring this get-up back down to earth, so to speak ;)
6) I may have had these Tory Burch Eddie Jewel-Toe Scrunchy Ballerina Flats on a holiday wish list or two--and they're still on my mind. For a festive night in, they would rock the house!

I know some of you may be thinking: "this is her NYE outfit?" Don't judge--I'm spending the night going to dinner with my parents before joining my high school crew for a night of revelry at one of their houses. If I had the means to afford all of this outfit, I certainly would! Until then, I'll sport the few pieces I actually have. I can't wait to get some inspiration for how to complete my actual outfit from your posts! All my best for a fun and safe New Year's Eve...thanks again for everything you gave me in 2011 :)

  23. Hope your NYE was fun - we just had people over at my apartment - fancy because we dressed up, but still able to take shoes off and dance on the couch!
