Only seven days into 2013 and I’m pretty sure I’ve already experienced the best thing ever. Wildfox (who to be honest I had never heard of before) put together a Clueless inspired lookbook for their Spring 2013 collection (I’ll pause to let the magnitude of this awesomeness sink in). If you’ve been a reader of Fancy Francy for a while you already know my favorite movie (and basically thing of all time) is Clueless. I’m pretty sure they created this lookbook just for me, as an early birthday present. Click the jump below to see more of my favorite images from the lookbook as well as my own Clueless inspired look.

New Year Style Resolutions

Untitled #145

New year, new you! Fashion resolutions

Now that we’ve all had a few days to get adjusted to 2013 ( still haven’t gotten use to writing that lol) I think now is the perfect time to create a few resolutions. If you’re like me then by now you’ve already read what seems like a million articles surrounding creating and keeping resolutions or have already decided not to even bother with them this year. I personally have decided to forgo creating new years resolutions in favor of creating vision boards instead ( more about that later). However, I did think it would be fun to come up with a few “style resolutions” for 2013 to help make this my most stylish year yet!

1. I will NOT become a label whore. Between  being a newly minted  New York City resident and constantly interaction with the “fashion world” through my style blog, it’s easy to get caught up in designers, labels, and what everyone else is wearing. I’ve always prided myself in looking at “design” over “designer” and have never been one to care about labels, but I’ve noticed an increased awareness over the past few months. I want to make it my new years resolution to myself not to get carried away with “who made what”.

2. I  will stop being a product junkie. I literally love cosmetics to the point where just the thought of a department store beauty counter makes me smile. Since reading other blogs and watching style and beauty YouTube videos are two of my favorite internet pass times, it may come as little or no surprise to hear of my slight cosmetic product addiction. In 2013 I will try to curb my love for buying all of the newest and latest hair, beauty, and makeup products and instead limit my purchases to items I actually need (or really really want).

3. In the words of Miss Frizzle from Magic School Bus: Take chances, make mistakes, get messy! Fashion, beauty, and style are all forms of personal self-expression. It’s important to do what feels right for you and not worry about what other people will think. Make sure your style is just that, your style.

Comment below and let me know what are you’re new year style resolutions!!

What to wear for NYE 2012

NYE 2012

It’s hard to believe that 2012 is already over, seems like just yesterday we we’re watching the ball drop for 2012 and freaking out about the end of the Mayan calendar.

For me New Years is always a time for me to reflect on the year that had just passed and to create goals and prayers for the upcoming year. Looking back, 2012 has been a very eventful year for me, everything from graduating college, moving to New York City, and restarting Fancy Francy has been a new and exciting experience that I’m really grateful to have had.

Whatever your plans are for the NYE 2012, today is the perfect day to bring on the sparkle. Celebrate the New Year in style with a little help from today’s outfit inspiration and end 2012 shining bright like a diamond!

Francy Answers: What to wear with seafoam green pumps

Seafoam green pumps

 

Recently reader Amanda wrote in ” what you would wear with seafoam green pumps?” I personally love seafoam green and although I don’t own a pair, I do own other accessories in this color. The trick to wearing seafoam green is making sure that the rest of your outfit is slightly more subdue. I personally like pairing it with black, tan, and blue. In particular, cobalt blue is a rich color that compliments this light green beautifully. With those tips in mind I put together two looks to serve as inspiration.

 

Must Have Monday

Rare Sequin Collar And Cuffs Shift Dress

Originally I planned on talking about my recent obsession with sequin in general for today’s “Must Have Monday” however I stumbled upon this little gem dress decided it was too special to share the spotlight and deserved its own dedicated post. It’s called the “Rare Sequin Collar And Cuffs Shift Dress” dress and it’s from Asos.com.  I really love this dress because it combines my love for chiffon and sequins and rolls it all into one big happy ball of pretty. I could so see myself rocking this on my birthday or for a fun New Year’s party in the city, there’s just one problem… the price. The dress cost $127 and although that’s not crazy expensive, it’s expensive enough that I can’t justify to myself spending that amount on a dress I’m probably only going to wear once. I would love to splurge and treat myself to this dress but since I’ve already “treated” myself several times since payday I think I’m going to just admire this love from afar (but if it goes on sale, all bets are off).

Comment below and let me know what you think of this dress, do you love it, would you spend $127 for it? Don’t forget to let me know what’s on your must have list this week?!

December is finally here and that means spending time with friends and family during the holiday season. This is definitely my favorite time of year and I’ve already started getting in the holiday spirit by picking out decorations to hang inside my apartment. If you follow me on twitter than you know I’ve already attended my first of several holiday parties this season. With all the holiday parties coming up, I’ve already started mentally planning outfits ( look out for a few look books on the blog soon). Aside from wearing traditional colors such as red and green, I also love dressing for the season wearing white, cream,and metallics. Recently I got in the holiday spirit wearing my new favorite cream colored sweater and leather leggings.

Comment below and let me know what are your holiday season wardrobe stables? What do you wear to show your holiday spirit?
