Fashion Faux Pas: 2014 WORLD Edition

I'm hardly a "trendy" fashion blogger, but that doesn't mean I don't have eyes and opinions on what I see in the world!  Plus, I do occasionally go into malls for staples and get disappointed by things that I think I like until I further inspect this was worth sharing!  (Also worth noting- I was having technical difficulties this week and was unable to post prior to the New Year as intended, but still wanted to share this content!)

High Low Skirts- Sexy in the front, demure in the back?  Who wants a mullet around their legs?  I know fashion is always about finding new things, but this is a trend that will be gone by the way side within a few years and be mocked a la acid wash in the future.  Sorry/not sorry.

Lined to the knees and then see through- What the hell is this?  Some perfectly lovely skirts and dresses have been ruined by this trend.  It looks like the designer ran out of fabric and said "fuck it."  Another trend that will likely not be remembered fondly in the future.

Mustache Prints-  We get it.  Mustaches are funny, ironic, and creepy in a cool way.  70s pornos?  Why not?  Sign me right up!  But pop culture started being ironic about them nearly a decade ago.  NEXT!  Bicycle lovely as you are, I'm looking at you too, Mr!

Harem Pants- Why were these brought back?  No really...WHY?  (Not to be confused with wide leg pants...I dig those a lot actually).

Tribal Prints- Now I don't hate tribal prints.  But I am super over them.  I have one piece of clothing in a tribal print and I love the colors, but I'm so sick of this trend I can't bring myself to wear it.  I'll get over it, but enough is enough.

3/4 sleeves=25% off sleeves...right?

3/4 Length Sleeves- I really kind of like this look.  But as someone who's always cold I'm constantly trying to pull down the sleeves over my wrists to no avail.  Quit teasing me, style gods!

Asymmetrical Shorts- They're like the harem pants of least in terms of flattering points.  I'm in the dark about why so many fashionistas went so gaga for them this year.

Those are my main 2014 gripes!  I look forward to seeing what 2015 brings style wise, even if it gives me another chance to mock stuff a year from now!  Also...I can take what I dish!  Tomorrow I'll discuss my own 2014 faux pas so stay tuned ;)

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 …
