Friday's Fancies | Red Carpet Ready

Holy guacamole, this week flew by.  Normally I'd blame it on the three-day weekend but I've learned that being self-employed means you don't always have three-day weekends.  It's okay, I take random Mondays off here or there to compensate.

No, this week flew by simply because there was a lot to do and I have a sneaking suspicion that the weeks are going to start zooming as we get closer to the wedding date.  Guess I'll just have to distract myself with fun frivolous things like Friday's Fancies.

And what a distraction it is, y'all.  This is by far my most sparkly Friday's Fancies outfit.  What with the Oscars this weekend and the countless hours I've spent looking at droolworthy-but-unaffordable wedding dresses on Pinterest, I just find the glam a little hard to resist right now.  Don't worry, I'm sure I'll be back to boots and big sweaters soon enough but for today, all that glitters is gold.

1. How cool is this Alexander McQueen clutch?

2. Lovely and a little edgy. Perfect earrings.

3. Funny story about this Oscar de la Renta dress.  I went down to Saks not too long ago to check out a potential wedding dress in person.  As I was riding the escalator up to the fifth floor, I spotted the Oscar de la Renta number.  I was mesmerized.  I had to get closer.  As I approached, my hand instinctively began to reach out, desperate to touch the loveliness.  And then I felt the sales lady giving me a pretty mean stink eye as I got closer, burning a hole in my head with her death stare.  But I didn't care.  I touched it anyway.

4. The model in the dress photo looks way too angry with her hair like that.  I'd soften it up with a party pony instead.

5. Classic. Sassy. Louboutin.  Need I say more?

B-t-dubs, I finally figured out how to make one of those fancy-pants hovering Pin It buttons for the photos in each post.  Now you can just hover over any photo in a post, click where it says 'Pin It' and add that baby to Pinterest.  Bam.

B-t-dubs part 2: Check out Mish's Ginormous Giveaway that I'm participating in. Lots of goodies up for grabs :)

Happy Weekend!
