It’s finally Thursday, which means I finally get to share this week’s three-ways-to-wear styling challenge! Whoo hoo!
I am a huge fan of light pink and pleated apparel, so when I spotted this skirt at Forever 21…it was love at first sight! Before purchasing this pink ‘n pleated skirt, I thought to myself…How many different ways can I style this? Will I get a lot of wear out of it? Well, off the top of my head, I was able to create six different looks! Ah! How fabulous?! And for this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday, I am going to show y’all three of those–y’all will have to come back next Thursday to see the final three *wink*
Hello, hello, hello, my fantastically fabulous fashionistas! I am going to jump right to the chase with this week’s Weekly Whistle…because I absolutely ADORE the photo “prop” and the flowy summer shorts from three07! Oh, the 1964 Buick Skylark in a dreamy cobalt blue hue made for truly perfect photos….mmhmm…..it does not get much better than vintage rides and fabulous fashions! All I can say is ’64 Skylark, baby…1964 Skylark, baby!
No words can explain how much in love I am with this 1964 Buick Skylark! Thank you Joseph St. John (aka Mr. Joe) for the use of your luscious car for this lovely photo shoot! Mr. Joe isn’t just an awesome guy with an awesome car…Mr. Joe is my boss man at Real Media!

Even though the gorgeous snow of yesterday’s winter wonderland has gone away…*sad face*…I have three ensembles from a last minute photo shoot to share with all of you! Having all that snow got me to thinking how fun it would be to travel North for winter just to take pictures! Hmm….spending the winter up North…in the snow…sounds like a good excuse to purchase lovely wool coats and adorable boots! But in the meantime….let’s take a look at the simply stylish outfits I put together for the Southern snow!
Denim Button Up: Target
Shirt: The Loft
Leather Boots: Belk, Lucky Brand
Blouse: SGB Vintage
Heels: TJMaxx, Jessica Simpson
Aren’t those ensembles the perfect way to look Simply Stylish in Southern Snow? Of course! Of course! Of course!
Journey back to the VIP Blog for another lovely article on “Shopping in Your Own Closet”! Until then…stay totally fabulous! Wait! Before I sign off…here are some more pictures from the Simply Stylish in Southern Snow photo shoot:)
Hello and welcome back, fashionistas! I know you have all been waiting patiently for part two of the “OMG it’s 2013″…No home depot aprons or house renovation talk–just fabulous fashion, gorgeous heels, and amazing ensembles to kick off this new year in style…So without further ado , I present to you “OMG It’s 2013: Part Two”!
Fashion Talk Time! Drum roll, please…The VIP’s top trends for the new year are….
Monochromatic ensembles: They are so simple, yet so glamorous-every fashionista needs one!
Floral Apparel: Lovely floral jeans, skirts, and blouses are ever so vintage and bring a smile to faces of the young and young-at-heart.
Handmade Jewelry: Ooo! handmade jewelry! The VIP just loves Etsy! Etsy is a fantastic way to discover amazing jewelry artisans who put so much effort into their work! Ladies like Lisa Hamilton of Beadsoul, Rachel Leathers of Hearts of Stone Jewelry, and Heather O’Cain of BluKatDesign are some super sweet women who will strive to make beautiful pieces of statement jewelry.
Super Sweet Pink Wedges: What more can I say? :)
Sequins and Metallics: What girl doesn’t love sparkles, sequins, and metallic! Pick up a sequined skirt and pair it with chiffon tops for an effortless, yet glamorous look! Metallic jeans are a great way to spice up any causal outfit in a snap! Remember, think sparkly!
Pistachio Green: A fashionista can never have enough pistachio green apparel in her closet! “Well, have you ever just eaten one pistachio?”-Abby Sciuto from NCIS
The Hair: You can never go wrong with a messy bun! They are so effortless and elegant and look fantastic with whatever you are wearing–from fancy dresses to comfy pajamas!
I am so excited about all of the awesome blogs and fashion coming this year! So many trends, so many outfits, and so little shopping time! I will have to get super organized in order to ensure adequate time to shop….
Back to the subject at hand…”OMG it’s 2013: Part Two” is here and ready to shine!
Welcome back, fashionistas! I hope you all have had a fabulous New Year! It is the first Weekly Whistle of 2013! Wow…makes me think about what an adventure 2012 was for the VIP! I began my blog in February 2012, and in June, I gained the opportunity to write my own column in The Real Story called “The Adventures of the VIP”. Then, in October, I started writing and styling outfits for Town and Gown Magazine! I could not have gained all of these opportunities if it were not for all of you, my fantastic, fashionable, and fabulous readers! All of the fan emails and comments have made me work harder to achieve my dream of spreading the love of fashion-VIP style! Once again, thank you, fans, for all of your support! I cannot wait to see what 2013 has in store for me, Miss VIP!
This week’s Weekly Whistle is a sneak peek of my top ensembles to kick off 2013! To see more fabulous 2013 kick off outfits, visit my article on www.realstorypublishing.com!
