Oh, You Fancy, Huh?

I'm not fancy at all, not in the slightest - but you've got to fake it til you make it, people! Also, you're welcome for putting a little Drake into your head for the rest of the day.

There was no way I was missing today's Friday's Fancy's with {av} at long distance loving. Today is the 100th week of her popular link-up and it's cause to celebrate! With sparkles, of course.

I'm going through a sequins phase, which is interesting, since I think I own maaaybe 1 item that has sequins on it. Details, details.

I'm in the market for a new dress to wear to my cousin's wedding next weekend. It's "smart" attire - so like one step down from black tie. I definitely don't have about 50 dresses in my closet that would work, either. (Note: Sarcasm).

There are so many cute sequined frocks out there, it was REALLY hard to pick just one. But knowing that I'm looking for affordable and doable for next weekend, I was able to narrow it down.

So, here's what I got:

OK, OK - so not ALL of this is affordable. The Jimmy Choos are likely not in the budget — nor is a vintage Chanel bag — but I think I could find similar looks for less. But those bangles? Only $22! Believe you me, if I can wear anything remotely close to this next week, I will. I love the classy look of black and white, using gold as a pop of color.

Tonight is date night with the husband to finally celebrate my birthday. Destination is a surprise, but it's nice. Who knows, maybe my one sequin item will make an appearance.

What's up with you this weekend?


  1. Just saw a black sequin skirt at Kohl's! (I get distracted by anything shiny while shopping!)


    GET IT GIRL! :)


    1. Nice! I think there's a Kohl's in the city...I'll put it on my errands this for the weekend!

  2. OMG, I am in love with those shoes???? I swear, I need to bring out my hoochie momma dresses again soon, I am in need of a night in an outfit like that!
    That is a nice way to put it by the way, for a wedding attire, I mean. I like that. Note to self: "smart" attire. Haha. I am sure you will look stunning in whatever you wear, but that is a mean outfit!!!

  3. LOVE this whole outfit!!! perfect to feel special/happy/festive/sexy in :)
