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, I started chasing a career in media at sixteen when I created, well–this blog! By seventeen, I was running my website in conjunction with writing a fashion-based column for a local newspaper and working as the head fashion stylist and contributor for a local magazine.
In an interview, See Jane Write Birmingham writer Javacia Harris Bowser raved, “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.
Abby Hathorn (that’s me!) is the writer and creator of Vintage Inspired Passionista. She is a Creative Strategist at Ascend Strategy & Design by day and a vintage-dreaming fashionista by night. She thrives on bright colors, mixing patterns and lots of iced coffees *wink*
She have two Goldendoodles named Oakley and Patton, and recently married her (now) husband Skyler. They are currently renovating their two bedroom, mid-century modern home in the quaint town of Jonesborough, Tennessee.
