I Got the Complementary Blues

I'm a girl that loves to find specific colors in prints and match them perfectly to shirts, shoes, and handbags.  But as I continue to fashion blog and evolve as a fashionista, I've been learning to match more and more with complimentary colors as well.  Typical Blair would have matched this awesome Le Bomb Shop shirt to bright blue shoes...and it frankly would have been awesome.  Haha.  But lately I've been trying to use more colors, even if it's more of the same colors, to tie a whole outfit together.  I decided to use this awesome Hell Bunny skirt I found via Unique Vintage as my palate and use a strong color to make the reds and greens pop, a la this cobalt blue pinup top.  Instead of matching perfectly, I used my favorite shade of blue, powder or baby blue, to play off of the darker blue with my Sophisticated Lady Flowers hair flower and Nine West pumps.  What do y'all think?  Do you guys have any matching secrets?  Is it better to match perfectly or find more creative ways to match?

  5. Nice skirt, Lauren! I really love the print:) You did a great job matching it with a blue top and pumps:)
    Personally, I mostly wear neutrals. But when it comes to matching different colors, I go with my intuition:)

    1. Neutrals are fun! Yeah, intuition is always best!

  6. Love this bright, cheery skirt!

  7. I love how put together and pretty you look! I definitely like finding more creative ways to match and you definitely did this well:-) Gorgeous look dear xoxo

  8. Adore this skirt on you! The print is so fabulous. For matching, I usually go with the main item, say your skirt, and then pick one of the other colors in the skirt to compliment it. That or just go with whatever looks good haha!

    1. You're one of my favorite matching lady masters! XO

  12. You are radiating happiness in this post! You have a great smile:) I really like how you paired these light blue pumps with this red, white and blue floral combo. It is so pretty! I can't believe Nine West makes so many pumps in different colors. That is good to know if I ever need a specific color shoe. Love this flower!

    1. Omg, Nine West is seriously the best for that! Just search Amazon and it's probably available! And thank-you so much, doll! XO

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …

Comedy and Tragedy

It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.  I generally hate cliche quotes that can easily be slapped on memes or on the coffee mug of a basic b!tch, but I'm hard pressed to find a better phrase to describe my life currently.  In short: I've been having the most fun that I've ever had in the eight months since I moved to LA, but then the emergency breaks got slammed on my life when my mother fell gravely ill and passed away two weeks later on June 6th.  
I'm currently back in LA, after being gone for three weeks.  I'm looking forward to continuing my comedy journey, as I feel it will save me from myself at this time.  But while I'm functioning okay as I'm still in a great deal of shock and my current mode is auto pilot, certain hours of the day prove to me that I'm very jumbled up and confused about my mom's passing.  I suddenly don't know what I'm in for and I don't know what I'm doing.
Not knowing what I'm doing …
