{ How to: Tossled Hairstyle #FancyHairFriday }


 

Happy Friday!!

The weekend is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited! LOL… Michael is home and we get to really enjoy each other a bit more.

Today’s hairstyle is a tossled look. It has a bit of curls and a bit of straight its a very bipolar look that I love. I think it looks a bit edgy and fun for spring. The key to make this look is by having the right tools and I highly recommend Bio Iconic Hair Tools. I found these at Ulta and they are amazing, because the 24K barrel and plates polishes your messy look so well. I hope you guys like this look!

{ Embroidered Trend & Espadrilles }

 

Hey friends!

I’m obsessed with the embroidered trend! This trend is so cool and seen on everything!! From bags to denims, hats, dresses, jackets, shoes, chokers and more. They can be subtle or embellished galore, suitable to everyone’s likes and tastes. Embroidery adds a little something extra. Have a favorite go to item in your closet and wish it had a bit of embroiredery? Be artsy and purchase the iron-on patches that look like the real deal as if they were stitched on directly. I added some to a plain tee and I love the way it looks. Maybe I should share a DIY and show you how I did mine. Would you like to see that? If so, leave it on the comments below so I can work on that. Another trend and a staple in my closet for the next two seasons are espadrilles. I love them! I look forward to spring and summer to dust these guys off and take them out for a spin. This year I was looking for a simple, sleek and chic pair and found the Champ Platform Espadrille Sneakers by Andre Assous. They are soooooo comfortable and the leather is so soft. You’ve probably already seen them on my IG feed since I have been wearing them non-stop.  So it was a must to come here and share a look with them. If you want to jump on the espadrilles trend, I’ve partnered up with Andre Assous to give you the opportunity to win a pair of Andre Assous shoes of choice, enter HERE. The sweepstakes will run through the end of the month and Andre Assous will pick winners on April 1st weekend. I’m also coveting this pair and they are next on my wish list. Read More…

Hey friends!

Are you enjoying the ruffles sleeves lately? I have jumped on this trend whole heartedly and I’m enjoying every second of it. I really like that it adds dimension to your look and an extra oomph to what would have looked  like a simple dress and/or sweater. This sweater dress was truly love at first sight for me because 1. I love a good sweater dress, 2. Because of the sleeves of course!, 3. Because it has a longer midi length fit and 4. It’s a thick sweater material so it’s not see-through. I always give white dresses a chance, but a pet peeve of mine is when they are too thin and you have to be worrying about bending over and showing the world where the sun doesn’t shine. Funny, but some gals don’t seem to mind that. I do. So when I find a good white dress, it’s usually a keeper. This one in particular has been paired with heels and with OTK boots for a more casual look. Both ways are gorgeous, but this is how I wore it last. You can find this dress and a few more ruffled items at my boutique, Fancy Boutique. And don’t worry I haven’t forgotten to share more news about the boutique with you guys here, I’m just waiting on a few more items to arrive to the store so I can do a boutique tour. Thanks for the support and in the meantime follow us on IG @FancyBtq.

 Thanks for reading and stay fancy!
