Shopping In Your Own Closet: Crazy About Dots!


Hello, hello, hello, my lovely fashionistas! Welcome back to the VIP blog on this wonderful day! In Alabama, the weather is sunny and 65 degrees-ahh….makes me ready for spring break…ooo! and spring fashion! But, I am not here to talk about how desperate I am for a full week of sunny, warm weather! So, let’s get started with what ensemble the VIP created this week by shopping in her own closet….


As I was rumbling through the boxes of clothes I have yet to unpack from the move, I stumbled upon a forgotten treasure…my vintage polka-dot skirt! This glorious moment spawned  the idea of a “dot-on-dot ensemble”…but what accessories? Hot pink, of course! The VIP simply adores polka dots and hot pink!






Lace Blouse: The Limited

Jacket: Twisted Moss

Skirt: Raspberry Beret Consignment Shop (Louisville, MS)

Shoes: JCPenny, Betseyville (by Betsey Johnson)

Belt: Target


Now, let’s get down to business! Tip time! Hooray for VIP tips! Hip, hip, hooray! Hip, hip, hooray!

Weekly Whistle: Put on that Dress

Just whistle while you work.  Put on that grin and start right in.  To whistle loud and long.  Just hum a merry tune.  Do your best, then take a rest.  And sing yourself a song. *whistle, whistle whistle, whistle*

Hello, beauty queens!  So today is Wednesday…yet again…and what is so fabulous about Wednesday on the VIP blog?  Of course, Weekly Whistle!

On my latest escapade (I promise I will not start singing Janet Jackson right now, even though I want to…)…Where was I?  Oh, yes…on my latest escapade in Columbus, Mississippi, I was an usher at The Rose Tattoo, a fabulous Tennesee Williams’ play.  For the first night, I sported a ravishing, jewel-toned, 1950s dress from Twisted Moss with knee high socks and divine Jessica Simpson heels!

Dress: 1950s from Twisted Moss-
Belt: Target
Socks: Target
Shoes: Jessica Simpson

I would like to thank the fabulous Brenda Caradine for getting me involved with the Tennessee Williams’ Tribute! Stay tuned to my blog to discover more about the VIP’s adventure at the TWT in Columbus, Mississippi.

Never let anyone tell you who you are. Always be yourself, and live everyday like it’s Friday! We are girls…we wear make up and heels to boost our confidence, but always remember…you ARE beautiful because God made you to be.
