IMG_5460

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Phew–the past few days have been quite crazy for me! I have been running through my college schedule–literally–trying to find the best routes on how to get from Class A to Class B in a reasonable amount of time…memorizing my Student ID number…and tag number. On top of that, I have been antique shopping in Johnson City and Elizabethton all day in search of items to finish my closet organization–I picked up some super amazing things that I cannot wait to show y’all..so, stay tuned to VIP Home *wink*

Anyway…where was I? Oh, my–today is Wednesday, which means it is time to take a look at the outfit of the week. Now, while y’all check out the photos (taken at Northeast State Community College…Go Bears! *wink*) + the outfit details, I am going to go indulge myself with some homemade gluten-free pizza *wink*

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Phew…today has been exhausting! I have been moving into my new apartment, unpacking boxes, and trying to make sense of what needs to go where–needless to say…it is a bit stressful. *ugh* So, I decided to take a break to sit down and chat with y’all about this week’s Weekly Whistle! Ah…this tall glass of sweet tea and blogging should mentally prepare me to tackle unpacking the boxes labeled “clothes” and “shoes” *wink*

Now, that is enough chit chat about the moving madness–let’s take a looksey at the outfit details of this week’s Weekly Whistle outfit, which features an ADORABLY AWESOME handmade necklace from KristaLize! Oh, how the VIP simply adores KristaLize jewelry! :)

VIP March Madness: An Outfit Perfect for Shopping Local

unnamed (25)

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog for another outfit in action! Whoo Hoo!

Today, I stopped by South Boutique (Trussville, AL) to do a little shopping and to say congrats on the one year anniversary. Not only was there delicious cake, but also a fabulous handmade jewelry artisan–Krista Lovelady of KristaLize jewelry was there with her sweet gems!  South has a wonderful variety of cute clothes and home decor–so cute that I had a hard time deciding on what to get! Finally after lots of chit chatting with my mom and thinking about things in my closet, I decided on a skirt and shirt from South and a super fabulous necklace from KristaLize. Sh…I am going to keep the goodies I got on the down low for now…Y’all will have to stay tuned to the blog to find out more *wink*

The VIP with Krista of KristaLize jewelry! Isn't she so cute!
