Weekly Whistle: Hippie at Heart

Ever since I can remember, I have been head-over-heels for the hippie era of fashion. The wardrobe pieces, the accessories, the hair, and the makeup are all so effortless and elegant in this oddly-romantic, slightly-rebelling-against-tradition way. Oh, y’all–I’m telling you the flow and the funk is so empowering + I am a sucker for pieces with killer sleeves *wink* 

So, for this week’s Weekly Whistle, I am throwing it back to the sixties and seventies with a little bell-sleeve and bell-bottom action. I absolutely adore this outfit because not only is it practical for my new #CampusLife *wink*, but it is also trendy and classic. When combined with the lariat necklace (worn as a headband) from Beauty In Stone, I feel like I just hopped in a fashionable time machine. 

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle + outfit details

Letter From the Editor: EXCITING NEWS!


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

I hope y’all are having a fabulous Friday because I have some very FABULOUS and EXCITING news to share with y’all! *girly scream* AH!!!!

Recently, I applied to Emory & Henry College, a private liberal arts college located in Emory, Virginia. This was not in my plans when I first moved to Northeast Tennessee a little over a year ago, and this definitely was not in my plans when I was in high school. So, needless to say, this collegiate journey has been a little bit stressful and ever-changing. BUT like anything good–it has all been worth it because today, I received my acceptance letter in the mail. My mom and I both screamed *wink*


As if getting accepted to Emory & Henry wasn’t enough excitement, I was also awarded the Patrick Henry Scholarship for my achievements. *happy dance* Somebody pinch me–I can’t believe any of this is real *wink*

I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this amazing opportunity to expand my education. I am also BEYOND thankful for amazing readers, fans and supporters like you guys. There is no way that I could be where I am today without the amazing support I have received from y’all, and I don’t know how I could ever thank you all enough. 


Thank you, readers, for supporting little 16 year old me almost four years ago. I bet that Abby never would have imagined VIP would be what it is today, and that she would be pursuing a broadcasting career. :)


Stay Fabulous,

Abby Hathorn
