Something I Love
I love my new cut and color from Wheelhouse Salon Downtown. (Hannah is the BEST y’all!) I got to show it off along with my BRAND NEW wedding planner from The Knot that I was just gifted from Alabama Weddings Magazine in front of our potential WEDDING VENUE, the historic Alabama Theatre!
Look out for me on the Alabama Weddings Magazine Instagram!
2. Something I Learned
Al Capone’s business card said he was a used furniture dealer.
I learned this random tidbit after reading up on the famous bootlegger when my brother came home from Philadelphia talking about his tour of the Eastern State Penitentiary. Al Capone’s time in this Philadelphia prison was not for his mob ties or alcohol bootlegging, but actually for carrying a concealed, unlicensed weapon. He was arrested outside of a movie theater in May 1929 and given the maximum sentence of one year in prison.
Philadelphia newspapers noted that Capone's cell contained fine furniture, beautiful rugs, tasteful paintings, and a fancy radio. He liked to listen to waltzes in his cell. Al Capone's Cell is on view during all public hours of the Eastern State Penitentiary, and is included with admission to the historic site.
3. Something I Accomplished
I’m still in the process of accomplishing this, but I’ve done a HUGE closet purge. It’s been hard letting go of some clothes because of the sentimentality and memories, but it’s definitely for the best. I definitely need to downsize and of course stop hoarding clothes that I wore last in 2011…. But, it’s been hard to determine what I want my personal style to look like as I approach the first marker of a quarter of a century on this earth. I know 25 will bring so many exciting things with it, but I’m wondering about what stories my clothes will be a part of now!
If you’re interested in looking through the things I’m getting rid of, shoot me a DM on Instagram @victorianiblett. I have plenty of things that are new with tags or just worn once incluuuuuding, this Show Me Your MuMu jumpsuit that I am heartbroken to get rid of, but must… It’s an XS if you’re interested!
4. Something I’m Inspired By
ALWAYS Hozier of course, but especially the new Almost music video he just released on the 16th of this month. The song itself vibrates in my bones, but especially watching the artists in this video collaborating and celebrating just made me smile!
It makes me want to create, create, create! Thanks Hozier!
5. Something I’m Looking Forward To
