Vintage Inspired Passionista (or VIP for short) is a sprightly guidebook for the fashionably-geared and artfully-minded originals. Providing a refreshing place for fusing a vintage passion with a modern lifestyle, the VIP covers life, style and all things vintage.
Raised in a small town in Mississippi, Abby started chasing a career in media at sixteen when she created Vintage Inspired Passionista. By seventeen, she was running her website in conjunction with writing a fashion-based column for a local newspaper and was working as the head fashion stylist and contributor for a local magazine. In an interview with Abby, See Jane Write Birmingham writer Javacia Harris Bowser stated, “Birmingham may have its own teen prodigy in the world of fashion blogging.“
In addition to fashion styling and writing, this Southern Belle has interviewed celebrities and fashion designers such as Ty Pennington, Ahmed Hassan, Emily Ellyn, Matt Muenster, Hilton Hollis, Joeffer Caoc, Betsey Johnson, Rebecca Minkoff, Donald J. Pliner, and Karolina Zmarlak–just to name a few.
