Hello, my fabulouses! I am excited to announce that I officially have a role in an upcoming, independent film *happy dance*–I cannot tell y’all much about the movie and all of the fabulousness yet…so, y’all stay tuned! :)
To cozy up yesterday’s Friday Night Fun outfit, simply toss on a cobalt blue, Aeropostle zip hoodie and BAM! Without a lot of effort, this sassy sporty outfit is now a little bit cozier for afternoon tailgating. Roll Tide! No, I am not a huge football fan—I do not pull for one specific team. Living only about an hour from the heart of Alabama football (Tuscaloosa), I cannot help but feel the need to join the Roll Tide bandwagon every now and again…Oh, come on—just say it. It’s fun. *wink* Roll Tide.

Hello, my fabulouses, welcome back to the blog! Oh, I had the most fabulous time at the College Night event at Belk in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on September 26! ROLL TIDE! There were food vendors, a candy bar, giveaways, a Belk fashion show, and much more to make the event a night to remember.
Adding even more excitement and energy to the event, the spunky and dashing denim designers Chip & Pepper were there having fun, interacting with fans, and helping customers find the perfect pair of Chip & Pepper jeans. “Chip & Pepper are experts when it comes to fit, comfort and style, and they have incorporated their knowledge into a cutting edge denim collection for Belk that is available at an affordable price.” (press release)

Hello, fashionistas and readers of the VIP! I am very excited to share with y’all a fantastic interview with the wonderful designers behind “three07”-April Moore, Melissa Grimes, and Courtni Tyre! So, let’s get started…shall we!?
Tell us a little about yourselves!
April Moore: “I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. I come from a very artistic family, so design was a natural path for me. We are all huge University of Alabama fans, so picking a college to attend was an easy decision – RTR! After college, I moved back to the Magic City, where three07 was later formed!”
Melissa Grimes: “I grew up in Mobile, Alabama, and I always knew I wanted to go to The Capstone. After college, I decided to follow in the footsteps of my great aunt and join the Peace Corps. I spent two years living in West Africa and working with young girls who were learning to sew. It was such a rewarding experience, and it was fascinating to see how fashion can transcend cultural differences.”
Courtni Tyre: “I was born in Dothan, Alabama; however, growing up, I spent a lot of time in Florida. After high school, I decided to do something different from my friends, so I packed my bags and headed to UA in T-town! It was the best decision I ever made. Since college, I have worked in the fashion industry – my merchandising experience has given me a keen eye for staying on trend.”
What inspired you three ladies to start three07?
“Individually, we’ve always been interested in the fashion world, but it wasn’t until college when
we realized our interest in design. As classmates ,we started to notice our similar artistic points
of view. We soon began collaborating on school projects together and developed a close
friendship. Toward the end of our college career, we knew we wanted to one-day work together
as a team in the fashion industry.”
Tell us about three07’s design philosophy.
“We believe that clothing should be Flirty, Fun and Fabulous! Our style is comfortable and cute, easily fitting into your everyday wardrobe.”
What is the story behind the name “three07”?
“This is a tough one, haha! The three of us graduated from college together in 2007. So, we combined the two, and there ya go!”
Describe three07 in five words.
“Flirty. Fun. Fabulous. Southern. Chic.”
Where can my readers purchase fabulous three07 attire?
*Alabama | Shoefly Boutique, The Pants Store, Ditsy Daisy, Polka Dots & Pearls, Kriskydoo’s, That’s Hot
three07’s “Bohemian Romance” collection will be available to purchase online and at the stores listed above in late April.
How is three07 involved with the community?
“We support local charities such as Glenwood – Autism & Behavioral Health Center, UCP, and Urban Ministry. It’s always a blessing to contribute to such great organizations.”
What is three07 bringing to the Birmingham Fashion Week Runway this year?
“We are thrilled because this is our first experience with BFW, and we will be showcasing our exciting new collection ‘Bohemian Romance’. It’s full of feminine prints, beautiful crochets, and flowy silhouettes. It makes you feel like Summertime!”
When y’all are not making the world of fashion a better place, what do y’all enjoy doing?
“We all really enjoy staying busy outside of three07. For example, we recently created a very elaborate gown and train for the Queen of the Order of Juno’s, a Mobile Mardi Gras society. We also have to admit that we love to ‘Keep Up with the Kardashians’ and other reality TV when we can.”
VIP QUESTION: What is one item in your closet that you would never toss out and why?
April: “My cowboy boots – I can wear them with everything!”
Melissa: “My pearls – They are my go-to for any occasion.”
Courtni: “My leather jacket – I am always cold, so I keep it with me 24/7!”
