Hello again readers and welcome to the InStyle Inspiration: July 2012 blog! This month, I have two FABULOUS outfits to share with y’all based off of the marvelous things I was inspired by in the July issue of InStyle!
The first article to catch this fashionista’s eye was “Find Your Perfect Denim Cutoffs”…immediately, I recalled my blog VIP DIY: Dip Dye Shorts, and I just knew my DIY shorts were my perfect denim cutoffs with a sassy VIP attitude:)
The beginnings of my next outfit started when I saw the article about “peacock shadow”…I knew when I saw it in the Beauty section that I would be glamorizing my eyes with a fresh and daring peacock eyeliner from Lancome!
Building off of the 1980s rebellious blue eye makeup, I decided that I just had to go all out, and that was when I ran across the “Your Look Q&A” article! Someone asked, “I need a break from cardigans. What’s another lightweight layering piece?” and InStyle suggested a light weight cotton blazer…luckily, I had just purchased a turquoise blue blazer similar to the one pictured! So, I skipped off to my closet, grabbed my 80s throwback pants from Deep South Pout, and paired them with a fun floral v-neck shirt and the bright blue blazer (that just screams 1980-in a good way!)! This next outfit is actually on the back of my new business cards:)
Well, there you have it, my lovelies! The VIP’s InStyle Inspiration: July 2012 outfits! Since InStyle is quite possibly my top favorite fashion and beauty magazine, I encourage you to pick yourself up a copy of the August issue and start getting inspired! Then, take a quick selfie in your mini-VIP InStyle Inspiration: August outfit and email or post it to my Facebook page to be included in a future blog:)
