Now that y’all have seen the outfit…let me give y’all a little mini VIP tour of the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum! I do not want to show y’all everything because I want y’all to visit Barber for yourselves! :)

Out of all the vintage cars at Barber, I immediately fell in love with this 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air Impala. It's powder blue and has sparkly interior...I am pretty sure it was my DESTINY to own this car; however, dad begged to differ *wink*

Lucky 13: Kicking Off the Series

IMG_3175

Hello, my fabulouses! Today is the first day of October, and it is time to kick off the VIP’s “Lucky 13” series ! With this outfit challenge, I am going to take the 10 items I purchased during my September Grand Haul for The Outlet Shops of Grand River and show y’all 13 different ways to mix and match these items.

I love the flow, feminine feel, and fabulous floral print of this dress from Guess. It is perfect for fall festivals or brunch alfresco. To add a bit of dazzle to this field of flowers dress, I tossed on a white statement necklace from Charming Charlie.  This fabulous combo is a good mix of sexy and sweet.
