Three Ways to Wear: Vintage-Inspired, Funky Dresses

IMG_3253

As I mentioned in yesterday’s Weekly Whistle, I am totally obsessed with these funky, vintage-inspired frocks! Because these dresses are such statement-makers, styling them multiple ways was quite the challenge, but y’all know the VIP–she doesn’t step down from a little fashion game *wink*

By mixing patterns and dressy with casual, I was able to create three new looks with two of my favorite dresses from Monkee’s of Johnson City. Check them out below + be sure to see yesterday’s Weekly Whistle and the VIP Instagram for more ways to wear these absolutely fabulous frocks ♥

VIP Tip:

When it comes to purchasing statement pieces, think of “unconventional” or “non-traditional” ways you can mix things up. An easy way to change up any statement dress is with different accessories–trying to add pops of un-thought-of colors or patterns with shoes and up-cycled, handmade jewelry.

Something About the VIP:

I admit…my favorite fast food restaurant is Jack’s.  I am a sucker for a Blue Bell orange sherbet ice cream cone and a fried chicken sandwich–plain–no mayo. no tomato. no lettuce.  Yes…I probably should have said my favorite thing to eat is salad…but that would be a flat out lie.  Can my choice of fast food be justified by the fact I order it without mayo, lettuce, and tomato?
