Trends…trends…trends–they come…they go…they repeat, just like history!
So, how does a fashionista keep up with the trends while still having her own unique style? Well–let me answer that for you *wink*
On a recent trip to the mall, I went into Forever 21 just to browse. While shopping around, I stumbled upon some vintage-inspired pieces that I just had to have. The following four items were being considered as hot “new” trends when, in fact, the styles are anything but new *wink* The colors, the necklines, the buttons, the everything are little repeats of pivotal trends from the 60s and 70s.
Now, before I go off on a fashion history lecture *wink* let’s take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle which includes two–YES, TWO–fabulous outfits *wink*
When I first tried this look on together, I thought it looked like something a modern Nancy Drew would wear. What do y’all think? *wink*
Happy Friday, y’all! Also…happy birthday to my mom–the coolest mom EVER *wink*
I am going to keep this week’s Frugal Friday brief because I still have yet to make my mom’s gluten-free brownie cake–as she requested–and I have to rest up for the Kingsport Art Crawl tomorrow! Oh, goodness….what shall I wear?!
I digress…This week’s Frugal Friday is all about an outfit I created by shopping in my own closet–take a look:
Blouse: Deep South Pout (click here to see other ways I’ve worn this dime of a top *wink*)
Skirt: Molly Green Boutique (click here to see other ways I’ve worn this fabulously floral frock)
Heels: BCBG (These were actually my mom’s shoes–she bought them several years ago–it’s safe to say these heels were a classic buy *wink*)
While shopping at Sephora in Johnson City, I picked up a lip gloss for the slamming price of $1.99–now, that’s a frugal buy! To make it even better–it’s universal pink…my favorite *wink*
Stay tuned to Beauty Tues in the coming weeks to find out the other awesome things I purchased + mini tutorials! Yay!
Now, readers, I am off to make gluten-free brownie cake in celebration of my mom’s 20th birthday *wink*
This week’s Weekly Whistle outfit is all about the VIP wearing a vintage skirt as a blouse…Yep, that’s right–wearing a skirt as a blouse. The versatility of this darling piece is what makes it so fabulous! Skirt or shirt…it all depends on the mood I am in when I wake up *wink*

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*
Now, before I spill the awesome beans on the cool stuff I got, let’s take a look at the details of today’s outfit in action!
