Fancy Friday...Fantasy Edition

I had no creative ideas or plans for my Fancy Friday post today so I came in late last night from little league and decided I would do this whole fantasy edition.  My mother always said I had expensive taste because no matter what we were shopping for, my favorite would always turn out to be the most expensive one of the bunch and I would, of course, make a compromise. 

So, I thought it would be super easy and fun for me to just go crazy surfing the net for extravagant, fancy items that I could never actually buy.  Turns out I was wrong.  I had a bit of a hard time finding things that just blew me away and I have been wasting away my morning searching.

But I did find a few things to share with you...

I have never been drawn to designer handbags really but I did find a couple at Neiman Marcus that I thought were cute and fancy and outrageously priced! 

The first one is the Saffiano print tote by Prada...

This is the Valentino Laceland Tote and it can be yours for only three thousand four hundred and ninety five dollars!  I'm dead serious.  Does it clean the house, do the laundry and pick up the kids from school? 

I've always had a strong love for shoes but never in my life have I spent anywhere close to what the following three pairs I found at Bergdorf Goodman cost.  Trust me, you don't even want to know.  I don't have a clue who this designer, Christian Louboutin, is but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he becomes the next designer to team up with Target!  

I also found this four thousand dollar sheer tunic dress by Marchesa there. 

I fell head over heels in love with these aquamarine and tourmaline kaleidoscope earrings at Tiffany & Co.  You will have to click on that link to see them though because Tiffany has some testy photos.

I thought these Diamond Concentric Circle Earrings at Neiman Marcus were also beautiful though they really don't compare to the Tiffany ones...



My birthstone is the diamond but I have a thing for rubies.  Check out this ring and bracelet from Blue Nile.


A forever fantasy item of mine has been an antique grandfather clock, similar to this one...

And finally, my fantasy dream car...

And that's all I've got for today.  I must now leave my fancy fantasy world and head back to the reality of housework.

  6. D-
    We're at the beach! It is beautiful. We all swam with Dolphins, yesterday, at Discovery Cove. It was incredible.

    splurged on a coach purse for mother's day. I love it and get so many compliments on it. I also have been splurging on Lucky Jeans. They are so comfortable and good looking.

    Thanks so much for getting up with my friend on her blog. I know you are such an encouragement to so many people. I can't figure out how to comment on her blog. Maybe I'll figure it out one day. I actually got her the book that you quote from some times. I bought it when I bought your book.

    Well, I have to get some sun screen on and head to the beach. My natives are restless.

  7. Amazing stuff! I will take it all please! :) Great blog.
