End of summer $5 dresses AND Labor Day sales links!

Two $5 dresses I got late last summer-that apparently both go well with this Melie Bianco Bag!

Late summer and early fall is one of my favorite times to shop because SO much inventory goes on clearance!!  (I do the same thing in the spring but for discounted sweaters).  Last summer I got this green H&M dress on sale for $5:

Outfit details: Cardigan- BCBG Max Azria, Dress- H&M, Bag-Melie Bianco, Boots- Madden Girl

Yes, I do wear more below the knees stuff but sometimes a girl needs a lightweight sundress to layer with boots and a cardigan or for super hot days!!  I also found this dress at a TJMaxx on sale for also $5:

Outfit details: Sunglasses- Forever 21, Dress-unknow from TJMaxx, Bag-Melie Bianco, Wedges- Nine West

This dress has come in handy for random non-photo-opp travel excursions and a dress to dress run errands in when I don't wanna get too dressed up for some reasons but also don't wanna look like a slob.  

Seriously, check out your local stores because some random gems and future basic staples are probably going to be mega discounted starting this weekend and continuing into the fall!  

Also, as I have an online shopping addiction I thought I'd share the Labor Day sales that I'm aware of because sharing IS caring!  (Check back a few times this weekend as I will update if I find out new specials).  PLEASE HAVE A SAFE AND FUN WEEKEND!  XOXO

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 …
