Fancy posts seek to profile shops and designers, both local and abroad, as well as feature unique finds that this bird has stumbled across. All objects of desire are celebrated, whether it's from Saville Row or independently crafted by hand. Why not peruse some of these Fancy posts?

Feel Inspired by outfits or trends shown in magazines, but feeling like you need to buy something new to capture that look? Put your pocketbook away and look no further than your own closet. This bird finds stylish inspirations and shops her closet, creating fashionable and wearable looks photographed from her own wardrobe. Take a look and get Inspired by your own treasures!

Sometimes a certain Mood strikes a jaunty bird, whether it's a song, a color, a place, or a state of mind. In a magpie-flurry of energy, treasures are collected and the many magpie Moods are created.

J'adore is in the air! And this bird isn't afraid to tell the world. These posts are art, music, objects or ideas of the moment. Anything caught in the mad flurry of passion, so it's anyone's guess over which of Cupid's Arrows will strike this bird's heart next!
