Spring Makeup Inspiration

Spring Makeup Inspiration

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues!

This week, we are going to take a look at the VIP’s April Makeup Inspiration…yay!
After flipping through magazines and clicking through Pinterest, I finally came to the conclusion on what beauty products and hues to slip into to my April beauty bag–lots of pinks, peaches, and playful pops of color. My big beauty goal for April is to embrace fresh, feminine makeup looks with a dash of artsy.

Weekly Whistle: VIP Outfit Inspiration

VIP Outfit Inspiration

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to this week’s Weekly Whistle!

With all of this cold weather, my outfit inspiration is lacking. I refuse to leave the warm cozy inside for anything other than Starbucks.

So, I logged onto Polyvore and created this set of outfits–new ideas consisting of casual wear for college, dressy dress for events, and professional mixes for meetings. As soon as the weather warms up a bit…I will be in much need of a shopping spree *wink*

Now, let’s take a look at what is inspiring the VIP this week!


Stay Fabulous,

Thrift Store Finds: This is not a yellow polka dot bikini

Chanel Mannequin is modeling the Thrift Store Find outfit as purchased…sans shoes and hat…keep reading to find out how I added my own twist to it:)

On my last visit to Meridian, Mississippi, I went thrifting…at first, I had no luck finding vintage, but my fortune turned around when I walked into the New Hope Thrift store…there I discovered the most spectacular outfit! A yellow and white blouse/skirt combo…I quickly grabbed it off the rack and hurried to locate my mom who was looking for furniture to redesign…as always;)

VIP TIPS (before you go thrifting):

  • Keep in mind you can combine Thrift Store Finds with the clothes you currently own!
  • Do NOT be afraid to mix patterns...or to go bold with color!
  • Look for unique, fun, funky pieces that make you stand out!

I have put together three different outfits to share with y’all…cute and adorable, dressy and sassy, and last but not least…full out throwback 80s! Enjoy:)

Shirt: Thrifted
Skirt: Urban Outfitters
Headband: The Attic
Shoes: Lucky Brand

Purple and yellow is a bold color combination!

The one thing I love about fashion is that it allows you to be yourself in a variety of ways. If people refuse to accept the way you are…then you always have your heels and pretty clothes:)

Shirt: Thrifted
Belt: Target
Skirt: Fashion Barn
Shoes: Jessica Simpson

Colbalt blue is my favorite color for spring! Combined with black, white, and yellow…you can’t go wrong!

“Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boy’s they’d just walk around naked at all times.” -Betsey Johnson


  • Invest in staple, statement shoes and accessories that add a wow factor to your wardrobe!

You may notice in some of my blogs that I often wear some of the same pieces…Why?…because they are so easy to combine with many different outfits! Items such as: the cobalt blue Jessica Simpson shoes, the cobalt blue belt from Target, and the Reo Speedwagon shirt (my favorite shirt of all time!) from Urban Outfitters are just a few of my staple, statement pieces.

Shirt: Thrifted
Tank top: Urban Outfitters
Jeans: JCrew
Shoes: Lucky Brand

The reason I prefer vintage over everything else is because it allows me to be different! I don’t want to look like every other girl out there!

I wish I could have lived in the 80s…the music is so fabulous!
