Last Friday's Favorite is still on the homepage of ESS, which means I have not had time to post very much this week. Between work, dinner parties, birthday parties, and launch parties (is spring fever to blame?), the past few days have gotten away from me. I know many of you have been similarly crazy lately, which is why this Friday Favorite is perfect for pulling it all together at the end of the week. A small, elegant evening case will unburden you from the week's extra baggage by paring you down to the weekend essentials- phone, cards, lipstick- while adding instant polish to your look. This favorite is a stunning mirrored box with ebony crocodile trim from Gucci's Jazz Age-inspired Spring collection. With a gold Swarovski fringe tassel and emerald clasp, this statement piece is all you need to effortlessly sweep into your weekend plans with gusto and style.

Or maybe you sweep into sticker shock... but you know how I feel about just going with the fantasy. 

Friday Favorites usually serve as a way to simply appreciate the artistry of one beautiful object without crassly bringing up the fact that the feature is largely unaffordable. However, this week I happened to find 3 great alternate evening cases from Zara, House of Harlow 1960, and DVF, so Friday Favorite serves inspirational and practical purposes this time. Hope you enjoy! 

 Here are a few other bits discovered this week which also promote the idea of embracing fantasy and appreciating beauty:

Have a fantastic, beautiful weekend!
