Even though I am not beaching-it-up on the Carolina coast or Gulf Shores like a lot of my friends, that doesn’t mean I cannot channel my inner boho beach babe with this week’s Weekly Whistle!
Since I can’t make it to the beach, I am embracing some true beach vibes with coral and turquoise! So, join me as I daydream about sitting in the sand while listening to Kenny Chesney with this week’s Miami-inspired outfit of the week♥

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.
Hello, hello, hello, my fantastically fabulous fashionistas! I am going to jump right to the chase with this week’s Weekly Whistle…because I absolutely ADORE the photo “prop” and the flowy summer shorts from three07! Oh, the 1964 Buick Skylark in a dreamy cobalt blue hue made for truly perfect photos….mmhmm…..it does not get much better than vintage rides and fabulous fashions! All I can say is ’64 Skylark, baby…1964 Skylark, baby!
No words can explain how much in love I am with this 1964 Buick Skylark! Thank you Joseph St. John (aka Mr. Joe) for the use of your luscious car for this lovely photo shoot! Mr. Joe isn’t just an awesome guy with an awesome car…Mr. Joe is my boss man at Real Media!

Hello, VIP fashionistas! Let’s kick off this amazing week with an amazing VIP Accessories Challenge! For those of you who are just now joining me on my blogging adventure…or for those of you who simply forgot what a VIP Accessories Challenge is–don’t nod your head no…it’s okay–we all forget things–especially me. I forget to take my laundry upstairs pretty much every single day–Anyway…an Accessories Challenge is where I take one outfit and swap out ONLY accessories to create a variety of looks with ease! Oh….fashionistas can never have too many accessories!
Now, without further ado…I present to you the VIP’s Accessories Challenge with a sunshine yellow strapless dress from Deep South Poutin Starkville, Mississipp! Whoo hoo!
Mixing metallics is a fun and easy way to create a superbly chic look that adds pizazz to any and all summer ensembles! Who said you cannot mix gold and silver together? Well…it was not the VIP!
I will throw in a personal testimony for all of my blonde readers out there! I was a tad bit nervous to wear this luscious yellow dress because I was afraid it would clash and look terrible with my blonde hair…BUT it doesn’t–it looks fabulous! At the end of the day, blondes can sport yellow–I am not really sure who told me they couldn’t….hmm…
