Totally Want Tuesday- 10/21/14

Hey all!  I figured I'd start doing some posts about the things on my wish lists since I see so many other bloggers doing that and it looks like fun!  Plus I sometimes learn about other brands and pieces of clothing that I otherwise wouldn't have learned about via those posts, so why not return the favor, right?  I may not do this every Tuesday, but I'll shoot for most Tuesdays in the month!

From Unique Vintage:


I actually love maxi dresses, especially if they're 70s centered.  I saw this one  on Unique Vintage's New Arrivals page and just love it!


I'm kind of, sort of, totally obsessed with anything that reminds me of the Brady Bunch.  I feel like Marcia would totally rock these 'Tan and Multicolor Lace Up Far Out Chunky Pumps'...especially since the name UV gave these shoes scream Brady vernacular!  Wearing them would be tricky because they'd probably only go with solids and I own so many prints dresses and skirts.  I still really want these though and hope one day I can add them to my collection!


I'm not the world's biggest jewelry girl, but these really caught my eye!  I'm not sure if I've ever seen a bedazzled pineapple so I totally dig these Pineapple Rhinestone Post Earrings!  

From Modcloth:


Honestly I haven't been seeing a ton on Modcloth lately that has me foaming at the mouth.  Frankly, I'm kind of glad for that because it can be overwhelming when you desperately want 20 items on that site and can't afford them!  But then I saw this Awaiting the Evening dress Monday morning and fell in love.  First off, I need more purple in my wardrobe because it's one of my favorite colors and yet I don't own enough of it!  Second, I really like "the first lady look" but sometimes feel like it can easily border on frumpy or boring if styled wrong.  There's no way this color blocking purple number could ever be boring, but it still is classy and professional!  I hope this goes on sale ;) 


From Bernie Dexter:


You all know I love skirts and I love Bernie Dexter!  I love that she's been expanding her skirt line more and more!  This Trixie Skirt in Winter Wonderland Print is amazing, at least for my taste!  I've loved this print for over a year but haven't loved the dress cuts it comes in.  I'm not typically into seasonal/holiday prints, but this print is just so wonderful that I want to make an exception to that rule!

From Trashy Diva:


I love Trashy Diva's Grand Fleur collection because it's a print I definitely have not seen before!  At this point I have so many florals, polka dots, and bright colors in my closet that whenever I see something totally different and in an unusual color pairing it's hard not to fall in love slightly.  This circle skirt is actually really cheap by TD standards ($54) and comes in other lengths and dresses as well!  

Any of y'all loving these prints, styles, and accessories as well??  Until next time, happy Tuesday!

  3. That Bernie skirt would be perfect for the holiday season! I can picture it being really cute with a cropped cardigan and heels.

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 …
