Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Happy Thursday, y’all! 

For this week’s Three Ways to Wear Thursday, I want to throw it back to three ways I have worn the maroon, American Eagle, leather jacket. Now, I have obviously worn it more than three ways, but for this particular blog, I picked out three of y’all’s favorites! How fun…right?!

Now, without further delay and distraction, let’s take a look at these fabulous throwback pictures and visit the blogs for all the details!

A Good Deed & A Gold Sweater

IMG_6834

Hey, y’all! It is that time of year again–closet cleaning time! I have been going through and donating my clothes to various charitable organizations since I was a little girl. Every spring and fall, my mom and I took out everything in my closet, and she would ask me if I still wore it…if I still wanted it…or…if I wanted to get rid of it. Staying true to this fabulous tradition, I went through my wardrobe and gathered items to donate–which is always bunches of fun! I really wanted to donate my fashions to a local organization–usually I donate to the Salvation Army–but this time I really wanted it to be more personal.

I had my clothes bagged and ready to take to a drop off box when I found out about Moody High School’s clothes closet on Facebook. BINGO! *LIGHT BULB* It was perfect–I just knew it was fate! I was so excited to give the six black garbage bags full of my fashions to the brand new clothes closet at Moody High School.  It was such an amazing and heart-warming experience, and I encourage all of you to closet clean and donate some of YOUR clothes to a local charity!

Oh, and while I was doing my annual closet clean…I stumbled upon this fabulous gold sweater! I forgot all about it–I bought it about a year ago and the tags were still on it! Fabulous! Anyway, today’s VIP OOTD is all about mixing some Grand Haul items with the snazzy cord sweater I found in the back of my closet! Whoo hoo! Yay for closet cleaning:)

Superb Seven: Kicking Off 7 Days of Grand Haul Outfits

IMG_3961

Hello, my fabulouses! It is time to kick off the VIP’s new Outlet Shops of Grand River Grand Haul outfit challenge on the blog–Superb Seven! For the next seven days, I will show y’all seven fabulous ways to wear all of the mega cute things I got on my October clothing haul.

Today’s ensemble is quite possibly my favorite because it is splendid for traveling, dinner dates, or even a girls night out–no boys allowed night out!

I sported this glam-comfy look while roadtripping in Virginia. It was super cozy for car travel ,and it transited well to dinner with the VIP team. All I had to do to get ready for a lovely dinner was touch up my makeup, fluff my curls, and hop out of the car. BAM! FABULOUSLY EASY.
