Special thanks to the VIP fans who tuned in for the live blogging/social media broadcast of the DSW Shoe Love Party at Colonial Brookwood Village in Birmingham! It was so much fun getting to work with B-Metro Magazine and Erica Bunker of D.I.Y. Style for this shoe-tacular event, and I am 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 shoe-tacular (I just love that word! Don’t you think I should submit it to Merriam-Webster Dictionary *wink*) 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 DSW Shoe Love Party at Colonial Brookwood Village with B-Metro Magazine!
Before I sign off, here is a slideshow of more random snapshots from the DSW Shoe Love Party live blogging event with B-Metro Magazine!
Hello, hello, hello, my lovely fashionistas! Welcome back to the VIP blog on this wonderful day! In Alabama, the weather is sunny and 65 degrees-ahh….makes me ready for spring break…ooo! and spring fashion! But, I am not here to talk about how desperate I am for a full week of sunny, warm weather! So, let’s get started with what ensemble the VIP created this week by shopping in her own closet….
As I was rumbling through the boxes of clothes I have yet to unpack from the move, I stumbled upon a forgotten treasure…my vintage polka-dot skirt! This glorious moment spawned the idea of a “dot-on-dot ensemble”…but what accessories? Hot pink, of course! The VIP simply adores polka dots and hot pink!
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!
