Restored 316 Designs / Copyright Infringement
Lauren Gaige Taggart (Austin, Texas) of Restored 316 Designs · My Restored Life · House of Design Blog is a hypocrite and a liar. She's also a scam artist and a thief. Lauren likes to call other designers unoriginal and accuses them of stealing her themes, yet all of her templates are stolen from talented designers, including Viva la Violette, BluChic and Pretty Darn Cute Designs.

Just recently etsy removed most of Lauren Gaige's listings due to copyright infringement, and Lauren chose to remove her entire etsy shop because of this. Not that anyone would miss her... most of her reviews are 1 star for bad customer service and stolen templates.
What else? Lauren is a phony religious person and a cyberbully. She sends her phony religious friends "Courtney Kirkland" to harass the people who make beautiful themes because god forbid Lauren have to actually learn to code, or get a job that doesn't involve sitting on her fat behind...
Basically, Lauren Gaige Taggard of Austin, Texas is a fraud, a cyberbully and a psychopath. Avoid her and do not give her your business!
