Unique Vintage, David Bowie, and Soap!

Hello to all!  Happy Wednesday!  This week has been nuts for me!  I've officially launched Blair Uncensored!  It's a second blog that's kind of a passion project and kind of a future living portfolio for other potential writing gigs in the future.  I have so much to say on pop culture and more that I finally decided to make an outlet for it!  Today I wrote about the unexpected passing of Chris Cornell.  I don't have a shirt from any of his bands (weirdly, as I'm an avid collector of band tees) but in this post I am wearing a shirt by the artist's death who rocked me the most, David Bowie.  I wore this outfit a few weeks back when I met up with some friends.  I was going to post this outfit late last week or this past Monday, but knowing my Cornell post was going out today I decided to save this outfit today.  Man, it sucks when awesome musicians die!

On a cheerier note, I hope this yellow outfit makes you happy!  I got these Unique Vintage jumper dress years back and it's been one of my favorite purchases of all-time.  This Bowie shirt seems to go perfectly with it!  I'm on the hunt for straight up yellow converse, but last fall I found these hombre yellow-orange ones at DSW that have been a good staple in my wardrobe ever since!  I rounded out the outfit with my orange Kate Spade cross body and matching orange earrings, along with my Atomic Lucite SOAP brooch that I'm utterly obsessed with!  To add a pop of additional colors I wore my Luxulite Majong tile bracelet, because primary colors always go with a yellow based outfit!

Hope everyone is having a great week!  I'm taking tomorrow off but will be back on Friday!  Have a great time until then!
XOXO

  2. How cool that you've created another blog completely dedicated to pop culture, I have a feeling it will do really well, congrats! As for your outfit, I love the contrast of the tee and the skirt, so cute! Yellow is having a major moment this season, so I'm really loving the skirt especially! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

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!

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 …
