Friday's Fancies

8/31/2012

1 / 2 / 3 / 4
It's Labor Day, so for this week's Friday's Fancies I decided to tackle the "no white after Labor Day" rule. I certainly won't be putting away my white jeans and white tees after the holiday weekend, but it may be time to give my more summery white items a rest (at least until early spring).
If you want to get your hands on some white before Labor Day is over, you're in luck because ShopBop has tons of white items on sale (like this white T by Alexander Wang skirt, these Free People Scalloped Lace Shorts, and this Patterson J. Kinaid dress).

I have two weddings in September, and might have to try out this side chignon, thanks to the tutorial on Brunch at Saks.

Did you see Glitter Guide founder Taylor Sterling's fall picks? What do you think of the burgundy trend for fall?

Gold is another major fall trend, and I'm smitten over these gilded posters from thevaguely (especially this one) ... which is why I'm so excited for an upcoming giveaway from the shop.

Speaking of giveaways, our Matine clutch giveaway is becoming one of our most popular to date. Enter before it's too late!

The girls of A PIECE of TOAST are going to New York Fashion Week!!!!

I'm so glad you broke that silly rule! Since it doesn't warm up here until September, I fully intend to break the white rule, too. :)

Love the side bun! That's how I did my hair for the wedding last weekend. I was crazy hungover and didn't think I did a good job but I got so many compliments on it! One person even thought I went with the bride to get my hair done by a pro. Definitely go with the side bun!!

I have been searching for a lace top *just* like the one in the picture...it's pretty much the height of feminine charm, I love it!! I'm thinking that my standards and my budget are in a huge standoff here (c: Have a great weekend, ladies!!!

Lace lace and more lace please! And I too support white looong after Labor Day. No rules like that around here :) Happy long weekend! xoxo

I agree! I think white looks good all year around. I really like the lace skirt - a very lady-like look.
