Numbers...  What do they mean anyway right?  30 is just a number.... a seemingly big number... but just a number.   Frankly I feel and look (thanks to years of protective moisturizing), forever 21... especially as the bartender at the Village Idiot carded me last night.  (sweet.)  

In the last ten years of my life as my life has evolved, so has my creative love for fashion.  Having lived in Bloomington, Indiana for the early years of my 20s, I was influenced by vintage and DIY apparel. Living in NYC taught me to take my fashion to the next level.  Sophistication, class, perfection, and 6 in heels as a life constant.  And in my final year of my 20s I have planted my roots in Los Angeles and discovered that my love for vintage and my New York sophisticated perfection have actually merged into the chic, ever stylish and always put together lady you know as.... Laurie B Style. 

My soul always told me big things are ahead... and as 30 is the new 20 starting today....  I'd say the journey has just begun. 

Onwards and always upwards!   Cheers to another 10, nay 70 years of my beautiful, inspiring and fashionable life.

I mean... who could resist when you are in THE department store from the movie Mannequin.

"...And we can build this dream together, standing strong forever, nothing's gonna stop us naaaooww."
Bottom line?  Hilarious! I wish I did more!   

Inspiration on the east coast!

I guess you could say that I have an affinity for flowers, graffiti, shapes, street scenes and of course fashion.

Today is a new day.

To all my followers, friends, fans, and fashion lovers,

Today is a new day.  No more will I be writing for  Being the LA Women's Style Examiner, I have met the most incredible people, covered some serious fashion events, and grew to be the person that I am today.   As I embark on a new adventure, I leave Examiner behind with a fond memories and fabulous fashion.  What I take with me is my love for giving you a more indepth analysis to fashion, a different way of thinking, my rightful title as your Editor in Chic.  

Today is a new day.  From now one the Laurie B Style Files will be your place for all all my fashion adventures.  And for now this is only the tip of the stylish iceberg.   You'll just have to stay tuned to see what happens next.

Fashionably yours,

Laurie B Style
