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: Sweater Weather Love

IMG_0453

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

WOOOO!!! It’s Wednesday which means the week is halfway over, and, of course, it means it’s Weekly Whistle time *wink*

It is definitely sweater-weather time, and I am definitely excited about breaking out my big, chunky sweaters again! Living in a colder climate than I grew up in, I am learning how to layer and actually make sweaters cute. Up until my moving to Northeast Tennessee, I don’t think I owned more than one sweater, and it was probably an ugly Christmas sweater from the sixth grade *wink* NOW…I have drawers and drawers of sweaters of all kinds that I am just dying to wear! *happy dance*

Okay–okay! That is enough about my newfound sweater obsession.  Let’s take a look at this week’s VIP Weekly Whistle and get in the #SweaterWeather mood!
