Weekly Whistle: Summer Fun with R. Tabb & Co

IMG_2571

On my recent trip back to the home-state, I stopped by one of my favorite boutiques in Starkville, Mississippi–R. Tabb & Co.. When I was living in Mississippi several years ago, I did a Town & Gown Magazine event at R. Tabb where I first fell in love with the clothing store. I totally stalked my own blog to find the photo below of Rebecca Tabb and I three years ago. Goodness gracious–hard to believe it was that long ago! Time flies when you’re having fun! How cliche am I *wink*

Be sure to come back tomorrow, too, for an awesome Three Ways to Wear Thursday featuring another R. Tabb buy–woo hoo! *happy dance* The VIP loves and misses R. Tabb & Co.

InStyle Inspiration: June 2012

I spy InStyle Inspiration: June 2012

Hello, my FABULOUS readers! I have two super cute outfits that I based off of things that inspired me from the latest edition of InStyle, and I am so excited to share them with y’all.

One of the pages that inspired me this month…

The detail and color of the blue dress shown in the picture above reminded me of a dress that I had stuffed in the back of my closet…I decided that it must be brought out and combined with a summery, straw hat and fun, white Jessica Simpson heels! I cannot wait to wear this outfit out on the town!

Hat: Blu Gertude (Deep South Pout of Columbus, MS)
Dress: Fashion Barn (Columbus, Mississippi)
Shoes: Jessica Simpson (Belk)
Sunglasses: Target (Trussville, Alabama)
I love magazines like InStyle and Vogue because they get my mind going about how to create my own “Inspiration Outfits” with things I already have, Thrift Store Finds, or new purchases from local shops.

I took inspiration (yes, this blog post has the word “inspiration” in it a lot…because I am the Vintage INSPIRED Passionista…haha;)) from Instyle magazine’s “Summer Steals!” and “Mens-Wear Hat” pages.

Hat: Charming Charlie (Birmingham, Alabama)
Dress: Deep South Pout (Starkville, Mississippi)
Shoes: Jessica Simpson (Of course…;))
This summer, I am all about hats! Cute, floppy hats with my bikini and coverup, a mens-wear hat with a funky dress, or a bright, fun straw hat with a colorful dress..The VIP loves hats….

Don’t you just love InStyle Magazine??? Oh, I do…I love it almost as much as I love Jessica Simpson shoes…

Go pick up the next issue of InStyle magazine, and find ideas to make your own spectacular outfits! If you have an outfit inspired by magazines that you would like to share…give me a shout out! I would love to feature them in an upcoming blog! So don’t be shy! Get to emailing me your inspiration outfit pictures:)
