friday's fancies #60.

I can't believe it, but here we are...a year into Friday's Fancies link-ups! From 6 to 102 bloggers, this incredible journey exceeded any of my wildest dreams! It has been amazing to watch this little idea grow into something bigger. I truly cannot thank you all enough for helping to make this "dreaming big" revolution happen. I cannot wait to see what the second year of Fancies brings.

This week, I thought it was time to exercise our creativity even more--by reworking an outfit you've seen across the blogosphere or pinterest into one of your own :) Jessica Alba inspired my outfit below...it is chic and sophisticated without being overdone. I hope you like it!


1) It doesn't get any more basic than a white v-nekc, but when it's by James Perse, it definitely ups the ante. I have a few of these Short-Sleeved V-Neck Tees in my closet from my retail days--and they're still my favorite.
2) These bold Oliver Peoples Eyewear Kosslyn Polarized Cat Eye Sunglasses create a fabulous impression from your first glance. I loved the touch of silver to keep them from overwhelming the face.
3) I wish my wardrobe could contain an endless supply of blazers like this one from Girl. by Band of Outsiders. You can amp up the chic factor over a basic white tee and not think twice ;)
4) Big enough for almost anything, this Marc Jacobs The Wellington Bag would make for a stunning addition to my handbag collection. I know our rent needs to be paid, but...
5) Kenneth Jay Lane stunned me {literally} with this Cubic Zirconia Necklace. I like that it isn't your basic diamond necklace and has a bit of an edge. I envision it layered with a number of other necklaces in my jewelry box, if it ever showed up on my doorstep!
6) Red pants make a statement and these Rag & Bone Skinny Corduroy Pants certainly do the trick. They take this black and white look to a whole new level.
7) Though I don't have the courage to rock these Maison Martin Margiela Leather Wedge Ankle Boots, I knew they were the perfect choice to round out this get-up. Who wouldn't love a little boost?


Jessica Alba makes a perfect muse, if you ask me. I hope I can look that put together after two little ones! She doesn't overcomplicate things and I adore her for that. I may never have her wardrobe, but I can certainly dream up my own versions of her outfits, right?! ;)

If you'd like to join the Friday's Fancies fun, pretty please send me an email and I'll add you to the weekly mailing list so you can know what's on the docket for next Friday. Thanks again for taking time out of your hectic schedules to join in the fun! Make sure you get all the attention you deserve by using your name in the "title" box of the linky tool--I want people to know your name! Until Monday...

  30. Cute and simple outfit, I might actually have most of the pieces to replicate it! Quick question... how is it the 60th Friday Fancies if you've only done it for a year? Wouldn't that be 52 or 53? Just curious what I am missing. :)

  31. @Court I started Friday's Fancies when I first started my blog, hence the #60. I didn't start the link-ups until this Friday last year! Sorry for the confusion ;) happy weekend! xoxo {av}
