I'm excited to reveal the first installment of Fancy Friends, a new Fancy Fine feature that had been knocking about in my head for a while. I'm lucky to have many stylish lady (and gentleman!) friends who collect vintage, and I though it would be fun to give you a peek into their closets and homes. Our first Fancy Friend is Miss Jessica Ward, an x-ray technician by day and a vintage-wearing doll by night. She lives just a few blocks away from me with her cats Sebastian and Rhoda. I've known Jessica for almost 6 years and I've always admired her whimsical sense of style. She's a girl who knows what she likes and has a knack for finding the most splendid vintage dresses and shoes and mixing them with new things. She also has the best laugh of anyone I know, which often puts me in bad-joke-overdrive just trying to get more laughs out of her. Here's a little peek into her world...
(There are tons more photos after the jump... be sure to click on "read more" at the bottom of this post!)
Sebastian, the coolest cat ever.
Jessica has so many amazing prints in her closet! I wish I could have shown every single piece here.
Rhoda! (And my new Ferragamo heels, found at a thrift store.)
Jessica wore the stunning dress on the left for an epic New Years party we co-hosted last year.
Only the finest snacks for us!
Sebastian, taking Jessica's calls.
I was with Jessica when she bought this crazy hologram (!) dog "painting." I may have twisted her arm into buying it... someone needed to!
Evidence of impeccable taste in television shows.
