Vienna



Hey all!  If you're a fan of Pinup Girl Clothing then you know this week that it's Jenny January (#jennyjanuary).  The "Jenny" is a particular cut of skirts and dresses that you can find at Pinup Girl Clothing that is a complete fan favorite.  I'm such a fan that I had to divide my Gaga for Pinup Girl Clothing post into two segments and tackle only the Jenny skirts in the first post!  (Second post coming ASAP...!)

This particular skirt I discussed in the Jenny skirt post and I cited it as being a little more snug than the other Jennys in a size small.  I don't take that back, but I will say that every time I wear it it gets a little more flexible, so take that intel as you may!  (No, I haven't lost weight since purchasing the skirt).



I had a totally different color scheme in mind for today's post, but I decided to save it for spring when brighter color schemes are a must ;)  My brain is already in spring, haha.  I'm sooooo not a winter girl.  I'm more than ready for January to end and see what kind of weather February brings, as it's usually a mixed bag with a lean on spring.  Honestly, January hasn't been bad at all.  But for whatever reason the snow isn't melting as quickly as usual making getting photos kind of difficult!  So many sidewalks have ice from melted snow freezing and the ground is kind of too wet and muddy in some of my usual spots for nice shoes!  I made due with a patch of dry and barren ground in these pics, haha.  I'm wearing an H&M cardigan, a Luxulite brooch, a NicCoco Creations hair flower (I've missed those, as I haven't worn them enough lately!), Charming Charlie glasses, and Nine West shoes.  


I'm in more of a rush than usual (see above weather issues making taking photos in a prompt matter difficult, plus winter allergies, and today trying to get to a podcast meeting...), so I'll save the motivational stuff for another post.  I love the song "Vienna" by Billy Joel, and since this skirt features and Italian landscape, I figured why not name this post after that song?  The song is a lesson in having patience too, so I suppose that could work for my missing positivity/motivational aspect of this blog!  Ha.  XO


I've recently added two pages to this blog, one that catalogues posts named after songs and another that catalogues all of the concert stories.  Click the links on to see for yourself!  Happy Friday!

  3. This is skirt is gorgeous! And I LOVE those white heels! The winter is in full force here too...it's hardly gotten above zero the past few days (which means zero outfits have been photographed here, haha). Hopefully you get some nicer weather soon! :)

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!  …
