friday's fancies #100.

Three cheers for Friday--especially this one! Today marks the 100th edition of Friday's Fancies! This little series has come a long way since the beginning and I have each of you to thank :) This week is one huge party to celebrate you. With that in mind, here is my sparkly celebration attire...

Why can't this alice + olivia Azala Sequined Dress find its way into my closet?! le sigh. The sparkly goodness is too hard to pass up, especially when you consider the gorgeous back. Check it for yourself!

These irresistible Bauble Bar Triple Ice Drops bring an extra dose of bling to this sparkly celebration. 

With sequins and sparkles everywhere in this outfit, this Kate Spade Post Street Little Adair Clutch gives just the right dose of metallic without overdoing it.

I could tout the Perfect Pumps from Ann Taylor every week, I would. In my opinion, these Glitter Perfect Pumps are more than party perfect.

I truly could never say thank you enough for being a part of Friday's Fancies! I seriously pinch myself on a weekly basis when I see each of your posts. Thank you for making this little link-up a part of your week--and for devoting your precious time to dreaming big with me!

One quick note: With Hurricane Sandy in mind, {cv} and I made the last-minute decision to stay in New England. Instead of running the Marine Corps Marathon in 40mph gusts, I will run the gorgeous Cape Cod Marathon. While I doubt I'll be breaking any records on this hilly course, you better believe I'll be pushing through all 26.2 miles. There isn't a reliable runner tracking system with this marathon, so you'll have to wait for my recap next week. Have a fantastic weekend, friends--and thank you for all of your love on so many fronts. YAY for 100!!!


P.S. Check out my moving-ready guest post on Case Study!

  23. Love your outfit and it's been so fun to be a part of Friday's fanicies! Good luck with your marathon- sucks about the Marine corp- I live in MD and so far Sandy is ruining everything!! Our grocery stores are already out of water and it's only Friday and still sunny today!

  25. Love the dress, and Friday's Fancies! Thanks for hosting a fun party each and every Friday!

    I'm so glad you opted out of Marine Corps - I wish my other two friends who are running would opt out too, the weather sounds downright nasty. You'll have to come down and do it another time, it's one of my favorite races! Best of luck with Cape Cod, I have always wanted to run that marathon, maybe in 2013!!
