Sunday Vintage: White and Green 70s Wide Leg Pants


Believe it or not...I do wear pants!  And for better or for worse, my "pants" season is upon me.  I can push my limits and wear skirts and dresses throughout winter.  But Colorado gets insanely windy from approximately the end of the February through April or May, and wind drives me more crazy than any other weather possibility out there!  Not only does wind chill me to the bone more than actual 20 degree weather, but wearing dresses becomes somewhat impractical, as none of us look like Marilyn Monroe did when she had some wind fly up her skirt.  Most of us, especially me, look a helluva a lot more awkward and lack sex appeal while the wind "plays" with our skirts.  This time of year I'm more prone to say "uncle" and wear pants.

But to make wearing pants more fun and less basic, I enjoy loud prints and/or retro pants to keep the fun in my wardrobe.  These pants I'm pretty stoked about because I found them on Etsy and they fit me perfectly!  Buying vintage pants was a completely new experience because the measurements are slightly different.  When I buy a vintage skirt, I basically only need to look up the waist measurement.  With pants, the waist measurement applies, but hips are also super important because they're not open.  Paying attention to how long the inseam was is also something that I wasn't used to.  I ordered a few pants over the past few months knowing I'd be wearing them when this time of year snuck up on me, but I feel these fit me the best (though they all technically fit and I'll introduce you to them in the future).

I thought it'd be fun to style them with my green Denver Nuggets shirt that I've had for years that I LOVE!  It isn't vintage, though it is a throwback to the vintage logo they used to rock that has become a popular revival here in Denver.  I initially thought I was going to tuck in the shirt, but decided that it was more flattering to leave it tucked out.  As I mentioned in this post, sometimes wearing vintage/vintage repo can take a hot second to get used to because we don't always wear high waisted clothing in modern times.  Though I'm a pro at styling high waisted skirts, something about wearing high waisted pants is throwing me off.  Maybe because it shows the figure more?  Either or, I haven't quite figured out how to rock high waisted pants with my shirts tucked in.  I either need to better figure out how to style high waisted pants, or just get used to me being in them.

  1. Cute! I never thought about shopping for vintage pants. I wear jeans or a dress, I have no in-between.

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 …
