InStyle Inspiration: July 2012

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:)

Lace Blazer: The Attic (1979 Lace Blazer)
Tank Top: Urban Outfitters
Shorts: VIP DIY
Belt: JCrew
Shoes: Material Girl by Madonna

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:)

Blazer: Urban Outfitters
Pants: Deep South Pout
This bright blue blazer makes me feel so cute and sophisticated when paired with these fabulous Steve Madden pumps…I have an obsession with super high heels…or so my deddy says;)

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:)

Don’t forget to follow the VIP on Twitter, Instagram, and like me on Facebook to keep up with me while I am away from my laptop:)
