Everything She Touches Turns to Gold | Vintage Sequin Dress

IMG_1166

One of my resolutions for 2016 is to get back to my blog roots by buying and wearing more vintage, and while on a recent photo shoot with my dear friend Andrew of Snapshot Avenue, I found this AH-MAZING vintage gem at Jonesborough Antiques & Artisans.  This 1980s, gold, sequined jacket/dress is an absolute power-piece, and I am tempted to slap the VIP logo on the back and wear it all of the time *wink* Oh. My. Goodness. I love sparkle…and especially vintage sparkles *wink*

This stately frock is so gold that it reminds me of one of my favorite James Bond movies, Goldfinger! Now, as you take a gander at this week’s fabulous Weekly Whistle, listen to this killer Shirley Bassey Bond theme song and get inspired to wear more gold, vintage and sequins*wink*

Weekly Whistle: Lovely Lemon + Excellent Emerald

IMG_9783

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog! 

As y’all know, it is all about yellow, yellow, yellow this week on VIP! The bright and positive energy of yellow is making me shake off my major lack of sleep *wink* Starbucks + bright yellow = a mood-changing combo

So, focusing on the theme of yellow, I created this week’s Weekly Whistle outfit using a fabulous lightweight, short-sleeve sweatshirt I got from GAP + my favorite J.Crew skirt EVER. Combining yellow + green could have gone totally “John Deere” (can you tell I grew up in the country? *wink*); however, unique handmade jewelry made this outfit totally spring chic.
