ModCloth Collar ID Dress

All About the Outfit:  I am genuinely shocked about how much I love this dress (Collar ID dress by ModCloth)!  I was offered it back in August to wear at the ModCloth IRL: Denver event for my hosting duties.  Knowing it would be approximately 80 million degrees out and being that it had long sleeves, even breathable ones like these, I declined.  Most of the late summer and early fall items from ModCloth have been super reduced lately and I had a ton of store credit to play around with so I took a chance on this dress (I never got a chance to try it on at the pop-up store because it was so busy and remained unsure how well it would work with my figure, which was another concern I had about wearing the dress to host the ModCloth IRL event).  

When I tried this dress on I didn't even want to take it off!  It fits better than I could have hoped!  I wanted to wear it the night I got it but it was unusually balmy so I wanted to wear an outfit without sleeves, as I know I'll still have a few more weeks of wearing a long sleeved dress like this out and about.  Sizing wise, I'm wearing an XS.  I was tempted to try the XXS because there isn't a waist line seam and I didn't want it to look like a potato sack, but the XS is loose with the perfect amount of shape defining for my current 24/25 inch waist.

Style Details:  Apologies, friends.  Winter is usually when my accessorizing A game comes out to play as it's easier to wear brooches with cardigans than with spaghetti strap dresses, but I've been lazy in the jewelry etc department lately!  I blame a crazy exhaustive 2016 and a mostly busy 2017/partially more relaxing start to the year!  I'm in decompression mode and am craving simplicity, even in my outfits!  Hell, I took off ALL of my rings that I wear daily over the summer to avoid tan lines and I still haven't put them back on!  Oh well, there's a few more months before the easy and breezy days of summer come back so I'll have time to make it up to y'all.  And for now I stand by this outfit: you don't need much to make an outfit pop!  A statement dress with a simple but bold shoe can stand alone, be a show stopper, and be deceptively low maintenance!  


This week has gone by a little too quick for my liking!  I feel like I haven't had enough time to get everything done that I wanted/needed to!  It's going to be a busy couple of days, but it looks like my weekend is more open than I was anticipating and I welcome that as I've had a very sleep deprived week!!  What do you all have cooking for you weekends??

  6. That is such a stunning dress and yellow looks amazing on you! I am not crazy about yellow as it looks weird on my very warm, yellow skin tone but on you it's really fab!

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!  …
