Weekly Whistle: Sail Away with Me

IMG_5308

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I took a little inspiration from a song I heard on Pandora a bit ago…Sail Away by David Gray. It is a phenomenal song with a chill vibe–the VIP gives David Gray and his song two thumbs up! *two thumbs up*

Now, take a look at the artsy, fabulous photos from a recent shoot in my hometown of Louisville, Mississippi intertwined with the lyrics, and let me know what y’all think!

*Outfit details will be listed at the bottom of this post–be sure to check them out to discover what wonderful jewelry artisan made my necklace *wink*

Sail Away by David Gray

Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

Crazy skies all wild above me now
Winter howling at my face
And everything I held so dear
Disappeared without a trace
Oh, all the times I’ve tasted love
Never knew quite what I had
Little Darling, if you hear me now
Never needed you so bad
Spinning round inside my head

IMG_5240Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now
IMG_5253I’ve been talking drunken gibberish
Falling in and out of bars
Trying to get some explanation here
For the way some people are
How did it ever come so far
IMG_5228Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now
Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

3 Ways To Wear A Pretty Pink Coat: Baby, It’s January (Outfit 1)

IMG_9957Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the VIP blog! I am so excited that it is 2014 because I have lots of new and awesome things up my sleeves–new adventures, new outfits, and some other new goodies! I am going to keep it all on the hush-hush for right now *wink* but stay tuned to the VIP Facebook page for updates! Yay!

Today on VIP, I am celebrating the New Year with this fabulous outfit because what fashionista doesn’t love pink and a crown *wink* So, I purchased this pretty pink coat on my last Grand Haul clothing haul; and before I took it to the cash register, I asked myself…how can I wear a pink coat multiple ways? Well, readers, that is where this mini outfit series comes in! Over the next few days, I am going to show y’all three of the many looks I was able to create with this pretty pink coat.

Now, let’s take a look at Outfit 1!

Weekly Whistle: Little GREEN Dress Featuring Three 07

IMG_9415

Hello, fabulouses! This week’s Weekly Whistle is all about a Little Green Dress–LGD. After going through my closet several weeks ago (see blog post here), I stumbled upon this Three07 LGD mixed in with my other dresses–I had forgotten all about it! How could I ever do such a thing?!

With the crazy fall weather we have here in the South, it is important to have staple pieces that can be cozied up or cooled down depending on the daily forecast. Because of its versatility, I have labeled this LGB as one of my fall staple pieces, and over the next few days I am going to show y’all how to take this dress from 70 degrees to 40 degrees with ease!

See for yourself...here are four days out of the 10 day forecast here in Trussville, Alabama. High of 73 degrees tomorrow to a high of 49 degrees on Saturday....Phew, thank goodness for my LGD!
Phew, thank goodness for the versatility of my LGD!

$50 Target Challenge: Outfit #1

IMG_8074

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog for another fun outfit challenge! What new series does the VIP have up her sleeve? Well, let’s see!

VIP Spending Budget: $50.00

With movie rehearsals and filming at the beginning of December, I knew that I needed to get comfy items without jeopardizing looking cute. So, I set out to find three pieces–

  1. An oversized sweatshirt
  2. Patterned leggings
  3. A cute skirt.

Staying within the VIP budget, I was able to snag a hipster-inspired outfit that can be worn three different ways. Even better than that–each piece can be combined with items already in my closet to create even MORE outfits! Oh, who knew finding fabulous outfits for less could be so easy!

Now, without further ado, I introduce to y’all Target Challenge Outfit #1 of the VIP Budget Shopping: Fabulous Outfits for Less!
