The Comeback Kid

Don't you hate it when a guy you recently started talking to and think you might be interested in randomly drops off the earth? No texts, Facebook, IMs, and let's not even kid ourselves that he ever really called. You find yourself getting pissed off every time you hear an iPhone text message alert because you look at your phone (even though the sound was clearly coming from across the room and not in your bag, but nevertheless) and it's still just your lock screen staring back at you. That sucks. You know what else sucks? When a blog that you love, ups and stops blogging. You just added a new blog to your daily internet "stalk list" and then they walk out on you. No warning, no message, or no forwarding number left on their answering machine. That was the story behind Fancy-Francy and its sporadic, (lack luster at times) blog posts. But that's not where the story ends. Fancy-Francy is back, under a new direction and vision: The life and times of a young twenty something navigating graduating from college, moving from the deep south to the big apple and everything in between. Fancy-Francy chronicles Francy's life as she moves awkwardly (yet hopefully stylishly) from one world to the next. As she discovers her personal style, views on beauty, men, friends, and life in general. And although you might be on the fence... trying to decide if your gonna give her another chance and welcome her back into your "blog loving"'ve been hurt before and just don't know if she will keep her word this time...have a little faith. And besides, who doesn't love to root for the under dog? xoxo,

Why I broke up with my boyfriend blazer

Blazer, Boyfriend Blazer

 This might not be politically correct to say (or more importantly "fashionably") but I'm going to go ahead and say it. I'm over the boyfriend blazer crave. There, I said it. But before you navigate off this site and shake your head at my vulgar idea, hear me out for a minute. I too was once a great supporter of the oh so stylish boyfriend blazer with its too cool for school longer sleeves that you push up for that "effortless look" and the longer length in the back that made it suitable to wear leggings with "sans bum covering" shirt. But nearly 15 boyfriend blazers into it, I have a rainbow assortment of jackets that I find myself not that interested in and a few old school just "regular old blazer blazers" that I'm constantly grabbing for now. Why is this? Because behind the mystique of the boyfriend blazer, for those of us girls that are more petite (I'm 5'4 on a good day) there is nothing like a well fitted blazer that goes in at the right places and emphasizes your femininity. A well fitting blazer adds sophistication and polish to any outfit from daytime errands to drinks with the girls at night (it's one of my favorite day-to-night pieces!!)

Check out some of my picks for a little inspiration.

Remember the days when clothes had only one name, like jeans, shirt, blazer? Back then clothing was so simple that it didn't two words to convey to people what you were talking about...
