Weekly Whistle: Slouchy Hat and Cut-off Denim Mini



Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Today…it feels like spring has taken a spring break and left us with cold, windy, wintry weather…yuck. So, for this week’s Weekly Whistle outfit, I decided to embrace the chilly air with  knee high socks and a hand knitted slouchy hat by Stephanie Grantham of Sparkle Cat Studio. (P.S. Notice that is the VIP blog colors *wink*)

Weekly Whistle: High-Low Dress


Hello, my lovely fashionistas! It is that wonderful time of the week again…WEEKLY WHISTLE TIME! Whoo Hoo!


This week’s Weekly Whistle is all about a brilliant burgundy, high-low dress I purchased at one of my favorite clothing boutiques-Deep South Pout! This dress is so versatile and comfy that I wear it every chance I get! My mom says that it will be the “REO Speedwagon tank top” all over again….but it’s so stylish! That’s enough talk about my fashion obsessions! Let’s get to the topic at hand-the VIP’s ensemble of the week!






Dress: Deep South Pout (Starkville, Mississippi)

Necklace: Deep South Pout (Starkville, Mississippi)

Purse: Belk, Steve Madden

Heels: Belk, Jessica Simpson


Oh, I just adore that high-low dress…actually, I love all high-low dresses! Hm…some tips on wearing high-low dresses would be great, don’t ya’ think? Of course, what fabulous fashionista doesn’t love tips! Come on, readers, it’s VIP TIP time! Yay!
