Special Pieces Saturday: Chic Wish Scenery Skirt


Chic Wish was my favorite discovery of 2014.  Skirts and novelty prints are amongst my favorite things, and CW is lousy with those items!  I even did a Gaga For post about Chic Wish here.  Over the holidays they did some pretty impressive sales, so I indulged in some of the items I coveted knowing I probably wouldn't get them cheaper than the prices they had listed.  One of my favorites is this purple landscape skirt!
 Outfit Details: Hair Flower- NicCoco Creations, Cardigan- Old Navy (for the record it's burgundy but for some reason photographed closer to a berry), Top- Le Bomb Shop, Skirt- Chic Wish, Shoes- Nine West
I consider Chic Wish to be of pretty high quality, but I must say that this skirt is even more durable than the other ones I own!  The fabric is thicker so it doesn't wrinkle quite as easily and the zipper is bigger and heavier.  The details are completely beautiful in person and it truly is one of the prettiest pieces of clothing that I've ever owned!  Additionally, I consider it to be the kind of piece of clothing that you can wear throughout every season.  I think owning those pieces of clothing is important no matter what because getting a lot of use out of your clothes is ideal.  This is double true for us Colorado kids though, as the seasons change every week!!

  2. Hi Lauren, I keep meaning to tell you that you are the one who introduced me ChicWish and their fab scenery print skirts! I've ordered 4, and while I'm in love with the prints, I'm still on the fence with regard to how they fit me. I may just be too short. They are so wonderful, though, and you look fantastic in them!

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 …
