VIP March Madness: An Outfit Perfect for Shopping Local

unnamed (25)

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog for another outfit in action! Whoo Hoo!

Today, I stopped by South Boutique (Trussville, AL) to do a little shopping and to say congrats on the one year anniversary. Not only was there delicious cake, but also a fabulous handmade jewelry artisan–Krista Lovelady of KristaLize jewelry was there with her sweet gems!  South has a wonderful variety of cute clothes and home decor–so cute that I had a hard time deciding on what to get! Finally after lots of chit chatting with my mom and thinking about things in my closet, I decided on a skirt and shirt from South and a super fabulous necklace from KristaLize. Sh…I am going to keep the goodies I got on the down low for now…Y’all will have to stay tuned to the blog to find out more *wink*

The VIP with Krista of KristaLize jewelry! Isn't she so cute!

Out of all the vintage cars at Barber, I immediately fell in love with this 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Impala. It's powder blue and has sparkly interior...I am pretty sure it was my DESTINY to own this car; however, dad begged to differ *wink*

VIP March Madness: Visiting Vulcan Park (Birmingham, Alabama)

IMG_4593

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog for the very first outfit of the VIP March Madness outfit series! Yay!

I have been living in Alabama for a little over a year, and I have yet to accomplish the things on my Birmingham Bucket List. The first thing on my BBL was Vulcan Park, which is one of Birmingham’s most popular tourist attractions. I have been to Vulcan for parties and events, but never as a tourist. Let me tell y’all–I truly enjoyed the experience of playing tourist in my own town and being at Vulcan. Oh, it is so gorgeous! Overlooking The Magic City from the tower at Vulcan is exciting, scary, and peaceful all at the same time! Now that I have visited Vulcan during the day…I am putting “Visit Vulcan at Night” on my BBL list because I so desperately want to overlook the Birmingham skyline when it is all lit up at night. :)
