Friday's Fancies + Have an Excellent Weekend!

Friday's Fancies

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

Are you guys ready for Mercedes Benz fashion week?  Well, are you?  Everything is in full swing and all of fashion's finest is in effect.  I for one am eager for photos, gossip and the like.  

This week's Friday's Fancies is focused on just that.  Fashion and all things fashion forward.  Honestly, I have no idea if I pulled "fashion forward" off.  I doubt that Heidi, Michael & Nina would be too impressed, do you?  However, I can say with full honesty here that I would not have the guts to wear this out.  Not because I don't love it, but only because it's not...me.  But put this outfit on someone like Heidi Klum and voila!  Magic.  

The Sonia Rykiel top was what started it all.  I couldn't get past the sequins and stripes (and I thought of Liz the whole time) and the colors.  Then I remembered how much I adored this and all the brightly colored pants of the runway and thought it was a match made in heaven.  I would never wear those shoes - mainly because I'm not sure I could walk in them, but they seem to be pretty sweet peeping out from under the pink pants.  Pink pants...yikes, did I just use those two words together in a sentence?  Anyway, I couldn't resist topping it all off with an edgy motorcycle jacket to bring a toughness to contrast all the softness going on here.  I hope I succeeded...but I'll let you all be the judge :)

What are you all up to this weekend?  We don't have much as far as plans but a lot needs to be done.  As usual.  I do know that we're ending the weekend with a special dinner that I am very much looking forward to.  

Whatever you get up to this weekend, I hope it's nothing short of grand!  Happy Friday + fashion week, my friends!

Your blog's name alone told me that you have a real spark of creativity and originality. Today's fashion comments were great, and true for many of us!

There was a time when I would have worn those pants and I think in the 80's I had a pair almost that color but I'm too old now I think. My daughter is looking for a purse just like that :)

I love the sequin top here and I want that bag on my arm! Good choice!

This look is so great! I tried colored pants this week too but I still don't think I could truly pull them off!

I am not sure I would be brave enough to rock the jacket or walk in the shoes...BUT I am soooo digging those pink pants and that top!!

Sara September 9, 2011 at 9:59 AM  

Being from Kansas probably doesn't make me the epitome of "fashion forward", but I LOVE this outfit, and I would rock it in a hot minute! One of each piece for me, please!

A few days ago I saw a sequined striped top-red (a little pink hued) pants outfit that I thought it looked fabulous. And here I find it again inspiring you as well. Wouldn't wear it myself either, not bold enough, but I would love to see it on someone whom it suits. xo

I absolutely love this outfit! The colors, sequin top and jacket are all stunning! I know Nina would say that she could see how perfect your taste level is (is it sad that I watch so much project runway that i can quote the judges??)! Love it all! xo

I LOVE that leather jacket! I'm bummed I missed the last FF but I'm also totally excited for this week's. Is it weird that I get so excited to make pretend outfits that I'll probably never actually own?? :)
