Friday's Fancies + Have a cool weekend

Friday's Fancies - LWD


French connection dress, $200
J Crew wedge heels, $50
Proenza Schouler military shoulder bag, $1,995
ASOS vintage filigree ring, $34
Tom ford sunglasses, $463
Butter London 3 Free Lacquer Nail Polish, $14


This week's Friday's Fancies is all about a) the little white dress and b) staying cool.  It's hot as hot gets out there.  Every time I step outside it's hard to breathe and feels like I'm baking in the oven.  I'm not really complaining (every time I freak out about the insane amounts of sweat pouring out of me, I just think about that good ole blizzard in February) I just wanted to emphasize how hot it's been.  Wooh boy.

The French Connection dress is pretty much amazing, right?  I'm such a sucker for dresses like these, full of colorful tiny details but incredibly simple.  The J.Crew wedges seemed like a logical choice to pair with the stunner of a dress and I couldn't resist the thought of wearing it with those very hollywood Tom Ford sunglasses.  Throw in a fun cocktail ring and some pretty purple Butter polish and the whole look is just that...polished.  Hoorah!

What are your weekends looking like?  I'm just going to try my best to stay cool and hydrated.  Whatever you get up to this weekend, I hope it's a good one! Stay cool, my friends.  Stay cool.  Also, go 'like' my FF at {long distance loving} just for the fun of it ;)

Oh gosh, can you send me some of that heat?! It feels like the middle of October here right now!
Like you said, the dress is so polished and I love the glasses!

The dress is great. I am in need of the shoes. A back strap is so great, the only way I can really walk in a heel :)

I so hope to stay cool. Phoenix is at least not humid but feels like an oven. Drink lots of water everybody.

Stephanie July 22, 2011 at 11:27 AM  

Very nice! That dress is fabulous. I love pieces like that with "built in" jewelry. They make it so easy to pull of a polished look.

i'd say YAH to staying cool but our weather hasn't even hit any hot marks yet : ( i'd die to have any of these though, for when we finally do have an actual summer. love them totala!!! happy weekend. ♥

Oh, that dress! I'd have to throw a sweater over that sucker to make it work in chilly SF, but I don't think I should complain about wearing a flannel shirt to the office today!

Have a wonderful weekend, darling!

xox, Lena

French Connection is my favorite! Love these muted colors like this.

Kristin July 22, 2011 at 6:26 PM  

Dying over that gorgeous dress! The beaded detailing is just beautiful!

Brandi {not your average ordinary} July 22, 2011 at 6:41 PM  

French Connection has so many goodies. I just avoid their stores completely in fear I'd go on some sort of ninja-like spending spree. This weekend for me involves lots of AC and staying out of the insane heat. Hope yours is fabulous (and cool)!

Isabel July 22, 2011 at 7:46 PM

Bad Joan July 22, 2011 at 11:45 PM
