Hey, y’all! It is that time of year again–closet cleaning time! I have been going through and donating my clothes to various charitable organizations since I was a little girl. Every spring and fall, my mom and I took out everything in my closet, and she would ask me if I still wore it…if I still wanted it…or…if I wanted to get rid of it. Staying true to this fabulous tradition, I went through my wardrobe and gathered items to donate–which is always bunches of fun! I really wanted to donate my fashions to a local organization–usually I donate to the Salvation Army–but this time I really wanted it to be more personal.
I had my clothes bagged and ready to take to a drop off box when I found out about Moody High School’s clothes closet on Facebook. BINGO! *LIGHT BULB* It was perfect–I just knew it was fate! I was so excited to give the six black garbage bags full of my fashions to the brand new clothes closet at Moody High School. It was such an amazing and heart-warming experience, and I encourage all of you to closet clean and donate some of YOUR clothes to a local charity!

Oh, and while I was doing my annual closet clean…I stumbled upon this fabulous gold sweater! I forgot all about it–I bought it about a year ago and the tags were still on it! Fabulous! Anyway, today’s VIP OOTD is all about mixing some Grand Haul items with the snazzy cord sweater I found in the back of my closet! Whoo hoo! Yay for closet cleaning:)

Hello, my fabulouses! Today’s Superb Seven outfit is so lovely and perfect for an internship meeting or a sweet lunch date with that hottie you met at the campus café. The chic combination of light petal pink and sleek black is so classic and charming. Accenting this look with shiny gold wedges, long tassel earrings, and handmade necklace adds just the right amount of shimmer and bling.
For a bit fun, I added a pop of color to this ensemble with the hot pink Nine West bag that I got for only FIVE DOLLARS…originally…originally? Y’all will have to check out my Grand Haul video below to find out the original price :)
Hello, my fabulouses! Have you every wondered what to wear to a college interview? Then this Superb Seven outfit is perfect for you! When putting together an outfit for a college interview, it is important to look professional and poised, yet youthful and trendy. Here are five easy steps to help you achieve that look.
Start with a classic black pencil skirt.
Find a patterned or brightly hued blazer.
Toss on a graphic t-shirt that is mature (yes, that means no cats), but with a pinch of youthfulness (sparkle, bright color, and so forth).
Look for a colorful and comfortable pair of kitten heel pumps that will coordinate with the blazer.
Keep your jewelry as minimal as possible. This is NOT the time for wild arm candy.
