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!
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:)
- 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.
