With autumn right around the corner, I am starting to stock up on some lovely transition frocks with function and versatility.
When I stumbled upon this fabulous button-down owl piece at Monkee’s of Johnson City, I fell head-over-heels for it! Not only is it warm-hued for fall style, but it is also versatile enough to be worn as a blouse, dress, and outerwear. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday and get a look at how truly amazing this wardrobe goody is ♥
Hello, my fabulouses! Let’s roundup the month of July fantastically by recapping Weekly Whistles! Oh…how I love glancing back at outfits of the week each month–it is always fun! So, come on fashionistas, let’s get fabulous!
For a long, long, long, LONG time, I have been wanting my hair cut and styled like a modern version of Marilyn Monroe. Thanks to Brantley Willis and Jeremy Stephens at The Association of Independent Artists–The Salon that long-loved look became a reality!
Brantley Willis, a tremendously talented stylist, did such a FABULOUS job with my color and cut–I could not have asked for a more perfect vintage look! It is hard to trust new people with my signature curly locks, but at the end of the day–it was totally worth it. I am still in complete shock of the wonderful job Brantley did with my curls. Bonus: it was so much fun being with Brantley, Jeremy, and Walker today! Y’all are TOTALLY FABULOUS!
As I was waiting for my top highlights to finish up–the mom, Brantley, and Walker Crow (hair stylist at The Salon) were chatting about how I wanted my hair cut. I have always referred to the VIP cut as a “curly bob”…until today…until Walker Crow’s genius…So…Walker Crow came up with the “cob”–a curly bob. From this point forward, the VIP’s signature curly bob will be referred to as a “cob”…yes, readers…a “cob”…it is catchy…Thanks, Walker Crow, for that fabulous title:) Bonus: I love corn on the cob smothered with butter…slathered in butter….
Near the end of the drying process, I began to love my hair EVEN MORE–I did not know that was even possible. To make my hair experience even more fabulous, Jeremy Stephens cut my bangs and played with my hair. I showed him a picture of Marilyn (yes, I have photos readily available of Marilyn on my phone) and no more than five minutes later…BAM!…I looked like a modern version of the iconic Marilyn Monroe. It was absolute perfection…so, so, so, so, so, amazing. Words cannot express how much I love the new Cob! Walker, you have created the most spectacular name for my ‘do.

Now that I have told y’all about my superb hair pampering day at the AIA Salon, let’s see what the VIP’s outfit of the week is! Come on, fashionistas!
To the nice guy named Austin that gave me a sweet note with your number on a napkin at the salon today…my mom threw it away before I realized what she had done. Please understand that it was not personal. She thought that it was trash.
For future fans and friends, please do not write valuable information on napkins. I recommend brightly colored sticky notes. To my knowledge the mom has not thrown away any valuable information written on sticky notes.
Fashionistas and gentlemen….may I have your attention please….I present to you the fashionably spectacular Deep South Pout Accessories Challenge!
If you are just now joining me….an accessories challenge is where I take outfits and show three different looks by just changing a few accessories!
In this challenge, I have taken two dresses from Deep South Pout and have given them three different looks by swapping accessories!
It is ALWAYS good to have a pair of classic black shoes and accessories on hand…ready for any occassion! I love strappy black heels…and pearls…
Animal prints make a nice neutral to pair with other prints or patterns! Every fashionista needs a little animal print to spice up her wardrobe!
Oh, my gracious…accessories are so important! With just a change of shoes and belts, you can easily give your outfits different looks…classy, dressy, fancy schmancy, you name it!
Join me next time for another VIP adventure!
The VIP has finally created a Facebook page to make it easier for my fans to stay updated on what I am doing! On the facebook page, there will be exclusive pictures and sneak peeks that you won’t be able to find on www.vintageinspiredpassionista.com .
Here are just a few more photographs from the Deep South Pout Accessories Challenge photoshoot!
(All the above photos were taken in Starkville, Mississippi and Mississippi State University’s Chapel of Memories. I had a great time traveling around Starkville for this photoshoot! After the photoshoot, I enjoyed a delicious baked potato at Sweet Pepper’s Deli…you guys know how I just love baked potatoes…)
