If you follow me on instagram than you know that I recently received my new Jeffrey Campbell Solitaire pumps in the mail and I couldn't be more excited. Two weeks ago I came across the Jeffrey Campbell Solitaire pumps on Nastygal.com's instagram and immediately fell in love. These shoes are so goregous and so on trend right now that I absolutely had to have them. I ended up finding the perfect color combo online at Freepeople.com and can't wait to start wearing them. These are the perfect neutral everyday shoes for spring and will instantly add style to any outfit. Want these shoes for yourself? Keep reading to find out where you can get a pair!

This past December I received the December 2012 Glossybox for review. This is the second Glossybox I've received so far so I was really excited to see what products I would get this time.
My favorite item from this month's box would have to be the necklace from Jewelmint. It's a thick silver chain style necklace and I've been wearing it every chance I get (including in the review video) . Coming in as a close second favorite would be the Mark. lipstick, I love how pigmented the color is and can't wait to try more products from the line.
My least favorite item would probably be the Pleats Please perfume. Although I love trying new fragrances, that particular scent isn't really "me" and I don't see myself using it.

I might have been one of the last people on Earth to finally jump on the Scandal obsession but now that the train has left the station it's full speed ahead for me. I ended up watching a self-induced marathon (thanks to good ole on demand) for the better part of my recent Friday night.
Olivia Pope has such an uncanny ability to command respect and look good while doing it, Kerry Washington nails this role and has become a style inspiration to woman everywhere. Check out this style guide and steal some of Olivia's sass and style ;)

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, 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.
