InStyle Inspiration: August 2012

Hello again, my beautiful readers! Do you know what time it is?  INSTYLE INSPIRATION time! Whoo Hoo! The excitement ( I’m so excited, and I just hide it and i don’t know the rest of the words to this song la la la la…but I think I like it…) oh yes, the excitement is spreading rapidly through my fashionista veins so I must share with you my inspiration from the August issue of InStyle magazine!

Blazer: Urban Outfitters
Top: The Limited
Shorts: JCrew
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Necklace: Avon

As I flipped through the pages of the August issue, I ran across a FABULOUS article called “Colored Blazer”…I shouted, “Colored Blazer! I have the perfect colored blazer-in blue-quite similar to the one shown!…Mom, where is my blue blazer I just got from Urban Outfitters…no, I haven’t looked for it…”  I am proud to announce that I found my blue blazer all by myself…shiny gold star sticker!

InStyle showed two different ways you could spice up your wardrobe with a “lucious hue”  blazer! (InStyle, August 2012, pg. 110)  I dedcided to pair mine with shorts for a classy look that would keep me cool during the dog days of summer.

I always make sure to read the “Color Crash Course” articles in every issue! This month, “Color Crash Course Jade” opened so many doors for my newly thrifted, vintage, highwaisted Wrangler jade hue jeans! InStyle says, “Jade plays well with navy, chalk, eggplant, and teal.” There are so many possibilities with all things Jade…and I challenge you to create your own fabulous outfits and email, tweet, or facebook me with your eye-catching ensembles! (InStyle August 2012, page 103-104)
The “Shop It!” section this month says, “Think outside the ordinary. Shop a spectrum of skinny belts.” Well…I have numerous skinny belts that can be paired easily with many different VIP ensembles! Every good fashionista needs skinny belts in a variety of styles and colors! So beg your deddy (Deddy, not daddy. Deddy is the VIP’s Southern slang coming out;)) for a little cash and splurge a little on new accessories for fall! (InStyle August 2012, page 206)

So pick yourself up the September issue of InStyle (available now) to see what will inspire you!  The “Fall Fashion” edition with stunning Jennifer Lopez on the cover is so AMAZING!   Join me next month for another fantabulous blog about what I found inspiring from the September absolutely fashion-packed issue of  InStyle mag.!
