Fashionable Movies: 200 Cigarettes

via Wikipedia

Part of the fun of having a fashion blog (I think) is not just talking about your own wardrobe and tastes, but also things that are stylish within our culture.  I'm not the world's biggest movie girl, but many of the ones I do like happen to have super fun fashion in them so I'd like to share some of these favorites with y'all!

One of my all-time favorite movies is 200 Cigarettes, which happens to be a New Years movie as well...hence I'm sharing this with you now!  It came out in 1999 but is a period piece taking place on New Year's Eve 1981 in New York City.  I may wear a lot of 40-60s style dresses, but the late 70s and early 80s is one of my other favorite fashion eras and the music from that era spawned a solid majority of my favorite bands as well.  This movie has fashionable preppy girls, high school fashion, punk rock fashion, and everything you can think of when you think of that era.   Specifically there's fun coats, interesting hair, party dresses all of us vintage fashionistas would drool over, and so on a so forth! It's also a star studded cast from Ben Affleck to Kate Hudson to Christina Ricci to Dave Chappelle.  Basically everyone in this movie is famous!  They follow the lives of about a dozen people trying to figure out/get to their New Year's Eve destination and all sorts of adventures ensue!

Check it out for the fashion, music, and story as it's also a really fun, quirky and well done movie!  It borders on romantic comedy, but not one that will make you gag as it's witty with tons of rock and roll in it.


PS- Elvis Costello.  That's all I'm going to say ;)

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!

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 …
