Sunday Vintage: Bathing Beauties Skirt

 This was one of those skirts that I knew I had to have when I saw it listed on eBay.  Vintage novelty print?  Check.  Vintage ladies sunbathing in vintage suits and hats?  Check!  It was like this skirt was meant for me!  Thank goodness it was in my size, or I may have cried!  I tried to wear this on vacation two weeks ago.  I got all dressed up and then went outside to find that it was just starting to rain, windy (read: blowing up my skirt and making me a little unlady like), and not particularly warm out despite the weather forecast not calling for those elements. Because I was all dressed up, I decided to take shelter where I could and get a few photos in so I could at least post about it here on the blog in case Denver weather in March brought more snow and too much wind.

I'm honestly at the point where I can't decide what my favorite piece of vintage clothing is.  I have roughly 5-10 favorites because I'm lucky and own some truly special pieces.  This has definitely become one of them!  This time I decided to style it with all black items to bring out the subtle black in the skirt.  I love my H&M bulky black necklace because it adds a bohemian feel to any outfit, and I thought it was appropriate to pair with this crop top.

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 …
