Friday's Fancies: Color Crush

It's Friday! Another week of 2012 has passed. And today, {av}'s theme for Friday's Fancies is color crush. I would be denying myself (and you) if I didn't of course include purple in my post today, and along with it I thought some black, gold, and nude would accent well.
I saw this dress on one of Kelly Ripa's outfit identifying sites. She (or her stylist) has incredible taste in clothing, and I would love to possess even a small amount of her wardrobe. When I saw it, I knew it had to be the highlight of my purple post.

1. The necklace is the J.Crew bubble necklace I've wanted for a while now. I've seen it on a bunch of blogs (like Danielle's yesterday and Megan's a few weeks ago), and I know they keep bringing new colors out. I just really love the black.
2. The dress is the Elizabeth and James penelope blouson dress, and there are so many things I love about it: the color, the sleeves, and the waistline are a few.
3. Some simple Kate Spade studs complete the black accessory look without taking anything away from the necklace.
4. And this would be the biggest splurge of this FF post. Some Louboutin shoes complete the look for me. I love the stacked heels on these as well as the color.
5. And lastly, another piece from kate spade. I like the chain and material on this Flicker clutch. You can tuck in the chain to hold it as a clutch or carry it over the shoulder with the chain.

We're going to a birthday dinner on Saturday night, and I would wear this outfit if I did own it. I think it's perfect for a Saturday night birthday outing. 

And I'm off Monday. It'll be a nice three day weekend. I've got a bunch of stuff I want to get done around the house and for the wedding planning. What are you up to this weekend?

Today is the last day to end my Erin Condren giveaway! I'll post the winner soon.
