Halloween Outfit: Unique Vintage Haunted Mansion Skirt

All About the Outfit:  Hey, all!  Happy almost Halloween!  I originally had it in my mind that I'd be showcasing all of my spooky and gothic prints the entire month of October, but other things had to be debuted as well plus I've missed a few days here and there.  ANYWAY, I'm going to try to show off as many as my intended outfits in the days leading up to Halloween, even if it means posting this weekend!  #wishmeluck!!!  

This skirt is seriously just the coolest.  I'm a sucker for scenery prints, so there was no way this one wasn't going to catch my eye.  I saw it debut on Unique Vintage and over Labor Day sales I almost got it.  I asked my girlfriend if I could get away with wearing it year round and her response was, "I would do it!"  Despite that encouragement, I didn't get this skirt then (I made other purchases I have yet to show off in blog-land...) but Doll Me Up  recently added a "Coming Soon" section and a few weeks back I saw that this skirt would be coming to them shortly. This was music to my ears because I actually won a gift certificate to them over the New Year and have been holding out all year.  When this haunted mansion skirt finally made it's debut I purchased it immediately, along with this perfectly matching Heart of Haute Estelle blouse (I've gotten super into Heart of Haute's tops, for what it's worth), and  a Deer Arrow necklace that I have yet to wear on the blog.  

Style Details:  As I mentioned, most of this outfit is from Doll Me Up.  Definitely check out the store if you haven't already; they carry a lot of pieces from vintage loving girl's favorite brands!  In regards to styling this outfit, I kept accessorizing minimal to none existent.  I figured it was best as the blouse has a bow, I'm mixing prints, and every item is already a statement piece.

As you can see, the scenery print goes all the way around the skirt!  I reviewed this exact style of skirt but in it's flamingo print over the summer.  You can read more about that HERE to learn more about sizing and quality, etc.  I'm still wearing a small, which I still feel runs a little bit large.  I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

  1. Gorgeous look. I love your post.

  2. Dear Lauren Blair, amaaaaazing skirt, what for a great outfit! I agree with your friend! I loooved the skirt, I never thought of such a print, Haunted house :) You wear the best prints ever! That is a great alternative as well, for someone who doesn't want to wear scary makeup, and still be dressed for Halloween! You look amazing! I hope you are fine and having a nice time!

  3. Girl, this skirt was meant to be yours! It looks so good on you , I love the way you've styled it with the polka dotted shirt and that you kept a blue color palette going, which looks great on you by the way! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having the best week so far, beauty!

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!

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 …
