Lauren Blair in Mary Blair: Airplane Print Heidi Dress

I don't know what it is about these Heidi dresses, but when I shoot them things go awry!  Last time in my Elephant print dress I was having technical difficulties and this time around it was sprinkling on me and I could only get a few frames.  So, I'm 0 for 2!  Oh well, some of the pictures came out decent  or at least useable so here we go!
For those not as familiar with vintage reproduction clothing, Pinup Girl Clothing put out a new collection this spring called The Magic of Mary Blair.  Mary Blair was a female Disney animator in the 40s and PUG got in touch with her estate to make a limited edition line of clothing based on her illustrations.  For us vintage loving girls, this was a bit of a dream come true and we all collectively started foaming at the mouth.  This is the 4th piece I'm showing y'all (I have a list with links at the bottom of this post if you missed my other outfits) and I have two more after this to showcase, which barring from amazing sales will likely be it for me.

As most of you know, I'm a bit of a skirt princess.  They made this print in a skirt but I really loved how the red trim and belt tied the whole dress together.  I loved the shape more of the dress than the skirt version as well, so when it went on sale over Memorial Day it was a no brainer!  (I've worn this dress since then but this is somehow not only it's debut on the blog but even on Instagram!!)

I used to be obsessed with matching everything to exact colors.  Even when I first got this dress I was initially thinking red heels, duh, or at least blue or white ones.  But since I've been more into using less than obvious colors to pair with outfits, I decided to go for yellow accents mainly.  I used red only once in my earrings (from Old Navy) but I used yellow for the other accessories in my hair flower (NicCoco Creations) and shoes (Jessica Simpson) to make it all more primary color based and hopefully pop more.

  9. These photos of you are gorgeous! I love your poses. You are perfection in this dress and I really like the pops of yellow idea. It does make your outfit pop a lot more. The neckline on this dress is my favorite style. It is so flattering. My favorite photos of you are the first and last ones. Beautiful dear!!!

  10. I think red or white heels would be nice too, but I loved the heels you are wearing! And matching all is not mandatory, so I loved this combination and I think it matches well :) I loved this dress, sooo sweet, such a creative print! I love the dresses you are showing and the retro vibe! You look so beautiful!

  16. I love the yellow touches - I think that's inspired. Nothing wrong with all the primary colours in one outfit, you've proved! You look gorgeous - I'm definitely a skirt person rather than dress too, but I think you picked a winner to dabble with the dark side here ;) CC x

Go CUBS!

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!

Win $100 Towards a JORD Watch!

What time is it?  THE TIME IS NOW.  Okay, now that I've gotten my favorite line from a Kids in the Hall sketch that I saw when I was 12 out of my system let's get to business!  The time is actually time to register for a watch giveaway and/or get a coupon, all thanks to JORD Watches. (Pronounced "Youd" as in like toad or road.  OR "Yoda" with no "a.")

Check out THIS LINK to try to get $100  towards a JORD watch and free sizing AND shipping.  This will go on for two weeks, so hop to it!  You can also get a $25 coupon with the code "blairosaurus" over the next two weeks too.  And if there's any menfolk out there reading, JORD has both women and mens watches.  Yay!

I'm rocking the Frankie Purple and Plum and seriously loving it.  I love how big the face is and it compliments my hair and many of my frequent signature colors that I wear.  The watches are made from wood so they're very durable and sturdy.  I thought the watches w…

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!  …
