Fabulous Friday: Special Thanks to my Great-Aunts Jo and Judy

IMG_7608

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

On my last trip home to Mississippi, I visited my two great-aunts, Jo and Judy. While at their homes in Kosciusko, we sorted through old family pictures, told crazy stories from the past, and even went through some of their vintage fashions. Aunt Judy gave me the lovely pair of vintage gold hoop earrings featured on this blog post, and Aunt Jo gave me the awesome Aztec-print wrap-skirt. I am assuming the wrap-skirt is from the late 70s, early 80s because of the pattern and sizing; however, who knows! I asked Aunt Jo from which era it was, but you know us Southern women…we do not tell our age or anything that might hint at our actual age. *wink*

Oh, how I miss my fashionably awesome great aunts and Mississippi! So, since I cannot sing (nor does anyone want to hear me try), I am dedicating this week’s Fabulous Friday to my great-aunts, Jo and Judy. Note: I will be going to Walgreens later to print them off these pictures…they do not have the internet; however, Aunt Judy is very skillful with blowing up old photos on her scan-in printer *wink*

Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at the outfit details + fab photos.

High Heels, Tool Belts, and Saw Dust

Hello, fashionistas, and welcome back to the Vintage Inspired Passionista blog! As you all know, for the past couple of weeks, I have had to trade in my snazzy heels for a tool belt as my family and I renovate a 1981 “fixer upper”. It has not been much glimmer and glamour lately on the blog; however, that is all going to change January 2013! Prepare yourselves for more tips, ensembles, DIYs, Accessory Challenges, and much more! What better way to kick off the new year than with fabulous VIP fashion!

It has been quite the adventure as I have learned to rip up carpet, carpet tacks, put down floors, paint with the color yellow (I always laughed at my mom when she said that yellow was hard to paint with…),  pick out backsplash tiles, and tear down walls. By the time all of this house renovation is complete, I am going to need a spa day-a refreshing facial and a relaxing mani/pedi!

A strip of the wallpaper from the "his" side of the master bath. I cannot imagine having wicker wallpaper all over the walls....80s fashion was amazing, but their home décor...not so much haha:)
