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.

Way One:

Dress: Monkee’s of Johnson City

Choker Necklace: BluKatDesign

Way Two:

I missed the Birmingham, Alabama Snowpocalypse

unnamed (4)

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

My goodness! I am so happy to be back home in Birmingham with my Charter high-speed internet and a Starbucks that is 2.1 miles from my house; however, spending time in my hometown was nice–spending time with old friends and family, revisiting some of my favorite photo shoot spots, and taking walks in the pasture listening to the calm silence that exists in the middle of nowhere…

Now, enjoy some photos from our adventure! Please note that my mom is quite possibly the worst iPhone photographer ever *wink*

Diet Dr. Pepper--when you are stranded without a Starbucks...it is the next best thing *wink*

After two days of being in Louisville, we were finally given the “clear” to head back to Birmingham. Roads were still a bit icy in patches, but God blessed us so greatly because we could have been stranded on the side of the road rather than stranded in the hometown :)

There was still a bit of snow to enjoy once we got back to Birmingham:)

VIP Interview: Arlene Goldstein, Belk Vice President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction

IMG_4297Fabulous, modern, and classic are just a few words to describe the apparel at Belk and Arlene Goldstein, Belk INC.’s Vice President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction.

Arlene Goldstein has over twenty-five years of fashion industry experience under her fashionista belt. She has traveled all over the world to some of fashion’s hot-spot cities in search of emerging trends and brands for Belk stores.With her signature styling and Southern fashion charm, Arlene truly exemplifies Belk’s motto “Modern. Southern. Style.”

IMG_4287

I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Arlene at the 2014 Spring Preview at Belk the Summit. She looked amazing—sporting a leather moto jacket, printed dress, and leopard heels, which is her favorite “color” *wink* What fashionista doesn’t love leopard?!

The Spring Preview was spectacular, and I cannot wait for the trends to hit the racks! I sense a shopping spree in the near future *wink*

After Arlene’s presentation, she sat down with the VIP to chat about her favorite Spring 2014 trend, personal style, and more!

Now, without further ado, I present to you the VIP interview with Arlene Goldstein, Belk INC Vice President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction.

IMG_4303

VIP: What is your favorite Spring 2o14 trend?

Arlene: I love jet setter because I love the prints. Since I travel so much, I wear a lot of black, and the jet setter trend is a chance for me to integrate some “Oh WOW!” pieces without stepping too far outside of my comfort zone. I also love the accessories–the tribal twist is definitely fabulous!

VIP: Oh, yes! Accessories make all of the difference! So, when you are not traveling with Belk, what are some of your favorite things to do?

Arlene: Well, I have a slew of grandkids, and I love being with them anytime I can! I enjoy going antique shopping too–I love old stuff. Also, if I happen to be in town when the flea market is, I love going out to it to see what all I can find. If I leave with one little trinket–I am happy. 

VIP: How would you describe your personal style?

Arlene: I think it is classic with a twist. I like to ensure that I have the basic building blocks of a wardrobe like those great, timeless pieces that can take you from season to season. 

VIP: What is your favorite fashion era and why?

Arlene: I love the 40’s because they were very romantic and sort of the post-war ear where the hemlines got longer–which we can see the hemlines dropping again in today’s fashion trends. Also in the 1940’s women were very chic–they dressed from head-to-toe with marvelous style and elegance. 

VIP: What is your favorite fashion season?

Arlene: Definitely fall!

VIP: What is your favorite fall fashion piece?

Arlene: Absolutely a jacket!

VIP Question: What is one item in your closet you would never toss out and why?

Arlene: I do not know that I have one piece, but I really love keeping accessories because you can wear older jewelry with more trendy jewelry for a look that is totally your own. Also, I would never toss out anything that was vintage.

Hello, fantastic fashionistas! The VIP has been quite busy covering Birmingham Fashion Week events and working on new blog/newspaper articles. Phew! I think I need another Starbucks run!

Last night’s [February 27] event was the first annual BFW Lifestyle (Mind, Body, and Soul) runway show. The event featured three07, State Traditions, the Pants Store, Pure Barre (presenting Karma wear), Faith Skate Supply, and Luluemon Athletica Summit. Without further ado, I present to you the view of the BFW Lifestyle (Mind, Body, and Soul) runway show through the lens of a photographer.

 

 

The VIP met the lovely designers behind Three07, Melissa Grimes, April Moore, and Courtni Tyre! To get an insiders look behind three07, click here.

Regarded as one of Birmingham’s top photographers, Zack Carpenter brings the world of photography and innovation together, to achieve high quality imagery, at low quality cost.

Zack Carpenter is an accomplished photographer from Trussville, Alabama.  One of his fondest memories being him taking his mother’s medium format camera and shooting shots of whatever was in front of him. Interestingly enough, not much has changed except, the technology.

With specialties in High Fashion and General Portraiture, his works are often described as “dynamic” because of his innovative use of lighting in portraiture, “esoteric” because of his uncommon techniques that make his photos truly one of a kind, and “fascinating” because of his ability to capture true emotion.

Zack’s true success came after he shot Birmingham Fashion Week in February 2012. Just days after the event, designers took notice of his images and began requesting them. Zack has had requests from fashion celebrities Lauren Leonard of the Leona collection, former Project Runway contestant Christopher Collins, and Gerard Maione (co-owner of What Goes Around Comes Around, which is one of the world’s top vendors of vintage Chanel items).

His most recent project was with designer to the stars, Heidi (Standridge) Elnora, who appeared on season two of  Project Runway.  His incredible images are in  Alabama Wedding, About Town, and B-Metro magazines.

Zack believes that anyone can take pretty pictures, but it takes a true photographer to create and capture a lasting memory.
