We all have that little black dress that is our go-to year-round; however, what about a little denim dress?
A denim dress is just as classic as a black one, it can be dressed up or down, and it holds a special vintage element that totally SCREAMS the late 1960s and 70s. Although the idea of wearing a denim dress might bring back nightmares of the 1990s, this beauty from Forever 21 is hardly a fashion mistake from Saved By the Bell. *wink*
So, for this week’s fabulous Weekly Whistle, I am swapping my little black dress for a little denim one. ALSO…check out the VIP’s new ‘do *wink* Thanks, Courtney Bennet of Salon Confidence, for dolling me up for a short, spring change-up with my hair. Now, without further ado, take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle outfit + photos taken in the wonderful downtown of Johnson City, Tennessee.
With summer apparel going on sale, and pre-fall frocks hitting the racks, I cannot get fall off the brain–cooler temps, changing leaves, and sweaters galore! Ah…the pre-season cravings are extra strong today *wink*
So, to satisfy my wishing for fall, this week’s Weekly Whistle ensemble is all about stately styling with bold pre-fall brights and patterns! Oh, this week’s outfit of the week is a lovely combo of summer sweetness and fall fabulousness *GASP* It’s a perfect summer-to-fall transition look! Oh, my goodness! I am so excited. I can’t stop babbling *wink*
Be sure to come back tomorrow for Three Ways to Wear to see how to stately style this noteworthy skirt from J.Crew!
Long before I became “the VIP”, I was pulling items from my closet and styling pieces multiple ways to give the impression that I “never wore the same thing twice”. I didn’t want my style to be trendy and disposable–I wanted it to be classy and reusable. Sure–I bought trendy/seasonal items that I later donated to the local Salvation Army, but I did not and never have “re-wardrobed” my closet after each season.
I was always taught when you get something new, you donate or give away something else…but that it isn’t always easy for a clothes hoarder like myself *wink* So, I try to invest in really cool wardrobe pieces, and before purchasing, I ask myself, “Can I wear this more than one way? What about three ways?”. And thus…VIP Three Ways to Wear was born *wink*
For a little Throwback Thursday action, check out the VIP’s first Three Ways to Wear posthere from February 2012 *gasp* That was such a long time ago…and man, was my hair long!
Now, without further ado, take a look at this week’s TWTWT to see how I styled the vintage gem fromyesterday’s post.
