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…

Pinup Squirrels: Friend Zone Video

Hey!  I'm so proud to be sharing with you guys the first sketch video I've been apart of since moving to LA.  I've been here for almost a year and it's been a shock that it's taken this long to have a video come out!  There's a bunch of things I've written but for various reasons production has been delayed.  And I've been asked to be apart of some people's videos as well, but various things foil those plans, like groups disbanding and schedules changes, etc.  Life!  Am I right??
Luckily one of my troupes, Pinup Squirrels, is revving up on our video production and here is our first one!  Written by our founder, Kristen Lucas, it's a sketch about a silly app making fun of how big Los Angeles is and how it's a thing that many people don't want to travel to see their friends in different parts of the city.
There is a fashion component to this video for me!  Styling myself was a little tricky.  I'd say roughly 85% of my wardrobe is "l…

Very Hot Summer Day Outfit

Guys!  It's in the 90s most days, which I love.  But what I DON'T love is not having air conditioning in my car.  And you may have heard, Los Angeles is a bit of a driving city!  So I've been utilizing my collection of Retrolicious outfits as for many years that brand has basically been my summer uniform.  
This amazing Jungle print skirt from ModCloth (by Retrolicious) is so amazing as it's versatile due to it's pastel print with navy background.  I adore mixing prints with this number (as seen here) but I decided to go for "less is more" (what is that??) with this grey Tatyana blouse.  My trusty nude, beige, and grey color block Nine West sandals (similar) came in handy to help the outfit pop while keeping it simple. Rounding it out I used my yellow wicker basket purse from Pinup Girl Clothing to make the yellow in the skirt pop more.  This yellow purse is sincerely the most practical purchase I've ever made while purse shopping.  It looks tiny and…

August Housekeeping & Announcements

Hello, gorgeous people!  I'm finally getting back into the swing of blogging again and have some fun posts coming your way, ranging from outfits, shopping tips, posts on grief, my life in the comedy world, and even a giveaway!  But before officially launching back into blog life I wanted to do some housekeeping.
Me at the last practice we had, with two of my four puppets, Raquel and Veruca.
I am a comedian with plenty of pots on the stove.  If you live in the LA area and want to see PUPPET IMPROV, please come check out my shows.  I'm in a talented comedy troupe of actors, comedians, improv artists, and writers...and all of us happen to be puppeteers as well!  Our troupe is called Puppets Amok (please follow us on Instagram if you have Instagram).  We have at least two shows in August:
1. We have a show at the Clubhouse on Friday August 10th at 11PM.  Improv show!  Free!
2. We are apart of the Los Angeles Indie Improv Festival, which is happening in two weekends.  We will take the …

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 …

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!  …

Life Update: I'm NOT Quitting Blogging

Happy Friday!  I apologize to all loyal and casual readers alike who check my blog and have found it to be way less updated than usual lately.  I have been at odds with blogging for some time now and that has only increased since my move to Los Angeles.   Me and my friend Kristin at Second City wear similar tops and identical shoes.  Note that I'm in (fun) pants because Second City wasn't using heat during 50 degree nights...burr!
I promise I'm not quitting blogging though.  However, I may be slowly redirecting the blog somewhat.  I'll expand in a later post about where some of my inner conflict of maintaining a style blog is coming from in a future post, but for now I will cop to that my lifestyle has changed greatly and therefore my style has changed.  I thought moving to southern California would mean that it would be very easy to wear my preferred style of dresses or skirts with mixed patterned tops every day.  In retrospect that was an adorable notion!  To be the …

Mixing Prints and Layering for Fit at Puppet Improv

Hello there!  This toaster print strapless dress is an oldie but goodie from Retrolicious.  I don't even know how old it is but I know I tracked it down on eBay some two years ago, which was well after it was out of print.  Retrolicious is one of my favorite dress brands and yellow is my favorite color, so one would assume I'd wear this a lot right?  Well, this size small dress runs kind of large on my frame.  Retrolicious doesn't always make an XS (now they usually do, but historically they did not) so finding a smaller size was not an option.  I really do like this dress but I've considered selling it from time to time.  I'm glad I didn't because I finally figured out a GREAT style hack for clothing that's too large, without pricy alterations or being a genius sewer oneself!  
I realized that if i wore a shirt underneath the dress it would help me fill out the dress AND give the dress something to grip onto so it was less likely to slip.  Because I'm…

Unique Stylings with Seasonal Colors in TOBI Dresses

It's that time of year where suddenly all hues are in pinks and reds!  I'm not one to celebrate hardly any holidays, but even I can't resist indulging in these color schemes as they are amongst my favorite colors to wear!  Using three looks featuring Tobi dresses, here are unique ways to style these colors this time of year so you won't look like everyone else!  (All dresses are XS for measure.)
Give a lacy dress some attitude! Outfit Details: Glasses: Steve Madden via Marshalls Jacket: Wrangler Dress: Tobi Shoes- Thrifted
Anything lacy, demure, or ultra feminine goes weirdly well with rocker chic.  I don't know why and I don't make the rules, but I'm not complaining!  It was so much fun giving this Wanderlust Wine  Lace Maxi dress an attitude!  Combat boots and a lacy maxi dress is a really fun option.  For this look I chose my Wrangler cropped denim jacket, but I almost went with my black faux leather jacket and that look would have been fun too.  
Try a r…
