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*
OMG. I am so excited that it is finally Thursday because I have been waiting for what feels like forever to share this fabulous BluKatDesign graphic tee with y’all! I am not only going to show y’all how truly fabulous this BKD tee is, but I am also going to show y’all three fabulous ways to wear it! AHH! What fashionista doesn’t love a Three Ways to Wear with a designed-in-America graphic tee?! *wink*
Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at these hip, urban outfits featuring BluKatDesign apparel and jewelry!
Photos were taken in the heart of downtown Johnson City, Tennessee.

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.

Whoop! Whoop! It is that time of the week again–Weekly Whistle time!
For this week’s WW, I decided to break out my favorite pair of Chip & Pepper jeans to create an oh-so-blue ensemble that is anything but sad *wink* Casual and comfy + cute and classy = the VIP’s favorite :) Also, that lipstick sure does look familiar…Oh! Yes–it was on yesterday’s Beauty Tues, that’s right *wink*
Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at the outfit photos + details!
Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to the 2014 J.CREW CHALLENGE! Ahh!
Can you believe it is finally here! Oh, it’s as exciting as Christmas morning. You know there are presents under the tree…you can see them…you can count how many…BUT you do not know what’s inside. Oh, decorating my apartment for Christmas is going to be so much fun! I think I want a navy blue tree with silver and gold decorations! Wouldn’t that be fab!
Okay–I am so sorry, y’all…I am quite distracted today. Perhaps three Pumpkin Spice Lattes were two cups too many *wink* Now, before I get distracted by something else, let’s take a look at the FIRST outfit of the 2014 J.Crew Challenge. Whoo hoo!
