This time last week, I was on my way to host a #BelkScene event in Birmingham at the Riverchase Galleria. Ah–can I just go back *wink* I had such a magnificent time at the Saturday Scene Prom and Special Occasion event, and it was so awesome getting to help the teens with finding their perfect prom looks at Belk!
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I never went to prom, BUT I did learn a lot from not attending….
Adolescence isn’t just about prom or wearing sparkly dresses.
In high school, I beat myself up about not going to prom. I felt like I was “not cool enough” and like I was “not pretty enough to be asked”. I probably wasted more time than I should have on the subject; however, looking back on my life now, I realize that I didn’t really miss out on anything! In actuality, I probably had a better time hanging out with my mom, watching Molly Ringwald movies, and eating too much junk food than I would have at prom*wink* The main thing I missed was the dressing up–which I got to do this week which was totally fun!
Okay–now that I have flashbacked to high school…let’s hop back to the present and take a laugh at some fun blooper shots from the VIP’s Prom photo shoot at Founders Park in downtown Johnson City *wink* Ah…being silly is therapeutic :)
Laugh at yourself, but don’t ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don’t leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.
Let’s end on a cute note! *wink* I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! Stay safe and enjoy the sunshine when you can :)
For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I am going to reveal to y’all the fabulous details about the outfit I sported to host the #BelkScene Prom/Special Occasion event at the Riverchase Galleria in Birmingham, Alabama. So, come on–let’s take a look *wink*
Shoes: Steve Madden, Belk (these snazzy flats were the cute and comfy shoe choice for dancing the afternoon away! Thanks, Steve Madden and Belk, for hooking the VIP up *wink*)
Special thanks to the VIP fans who stopped by the #BekScene event at the Riverchase Galleria + those who “tuned in” to the live social media posts! It was so much fun getting to work with Belk Riverchase Galleriafor this sparkle-tacular event, and I was so pumped that I was able to share it with all of you…LIVE! I mean, come on…how fabulous was that?!
Now, I want to share with y’all the photos I was not able to tweet and post during the live event–because there is only so much time in a few hours *wink* So, without further ado, I present to you the VIP Scrapbook of the #BelkScene Prom/Special Occasion event at the Riverchase Galleria! Whoo hoo–let’s take a view!
COME BACK TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY TO GET THE SCOOP ABOUT MY EASY DIY MANICURE + THE DETAILS ON MY PROM-INSPIRED HOST OUTFIT! :)
Phew…we’ve made it to Thursday, y’all! Just one more day until the weekend–I think we got this fabulous (and stressful) week in the bag! *wink*
Speaking of bags…the VIP has lots in store for y’all on this week’s TWTWT, so let’s get it started *cue Black Eyed Peas* Be sure to stay tuned to the bottom of the blog for a very special announcement about a fab event the VIP will be hosting this weekend! Hm….I wonder what it could be?!
For this week’s TWTWT challenge, I took my new eyelet skirt from JC Penny and wore it three fabulous ways. The special thing about this TWTWT is that I show you how simply tucking in/untucking a blouse can create two looks EFFORTLESSLY. Who would have thought?! Ah…my favorite–cute and effortless fashion *wink*
I sported this lucky outfit on St. Patrick’s Day this year; however, I did not share it on the blog. I love the stark contrast of solid shamrock and basic black + I am always looking for an excuse to sport my green kitten heels! *wink*
The VIP is going to be a guest blogger host at the #BelkScene Prom and Special Occasion event at the Belk Riverchase Galleria in Birmingham, Alabama this Saturday (April 11). YAY! How fun! I will be at the Saturday Scene event offering up my style advice + talking about the fabulous prom trends–from fabulous dresses to sweet shoes! Speaking of shoes…I will be wearing some pretty cute and comfy Steve Maddens, so stop by to see my shoes + how I will be wearing them *wink* Small hint: they are perfect for dancing!
There will be a live DJ (I will, of course, have to take a dance break in my Steve Maddens*wink*), sweet treats, and models showcasing the best of the best trends from brands like Jessica Simpson, Steve Madden, Unlisted, Adrianna Papell, and MORE! So, Birmingham fans–come out and see the VIP at the Belk Riverchase Galleria for a terrific time, fun fashions, and apparel tips! Cannot wait to see y’all there!
