Lucky eBay Find: Bernie Dexter Blue & Red Eiffel Towers

I've literally been in love with this print since I discovered Bernie Dexter.  But this dress is NEVER on sale (or very rarely, I should say, and during moments where I'm not flush with cash).  I always assumed I'd get the Frenchie style, though I was also holding out hope for a very elusive halter version of this dress since that's my favorite Bernie Dexter style.  Earlier this winter I saw this version  (Lulu) of the dress pop up for $40.  I Googled it immediately because I had never seen the red eiffel tower print in this style, so I wanted to make sure Bernie did do that version (majority of her fabrics can be found elsewhere so I'm careful about knockoffs) and I found several photos on Google images of other girls in this exact dress.  $40 for a Bernie dress is ALWAYS a steal, and the seller had listed that number as the price with no bidding, so I immediately seized the day with this one and purchased it!

A little over a week ago, I spoke about another Lulu style dress I had gotten around the same time.  I mentioned there that the cut is slightly tighter than other Bernie dresses.  While both fit, they are really tight!  So definitely size up if you are between sizes or already feel somewhat snug in the Bernie dresses you already have as they're tight around the ribs and ride up into your arm pits slightly more!  I'm a true XS in BD dresses, but if I find another I like in this style I'll probably get the small to have a little more breathing room!

PS- You may have noticed on my Instagram that I've recently adopted a pair of flashy red cowboy boots.  I imagine they may be polarizing, but I'm having a blast with them!  Initially I was going to wear one of my usual tried and true pumps with this dress, but at the last second put these bad boys on instead because it was slightly colder out and I knew I'd have all summer to wear this dress without boots.  Wearing cowboy boots in this photo shoot was a lot of fun because I got to vary up how I pose with the feet and hold the dress because it wasn't as "proper" as I usually look!  Hope you enjoyed too!

Awkward twirling photo!  I couldn't help but add this because I just look so darn happy here despite that my footwork is a little flat!

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 …
