Special Pieces Saturday: Bernie Dexter Frenchie Halter in Orange Poppy Print

This Bernie Dexter dress is simply put: one of my favorites.  Within the past year there was a dress by her with the exact same print out that I was planning on getting.  Then one day, out of the blue and from a listing right near my home town back east, this dressed popped up on eBay.  I didn't even know this version was sold and the halter cuts are my favorite of her style of dresses.  It was a no brainer to purchase this dress and I'm mighty glad I did!  I haven't worn it a lot this winter because it's kind of summery and it got a lot of use in the fall with it being orange and all, but I'm ready for this to be the perfect and bright summer dress as it gets hotter here.  
I decided to style this with almost all orange.  I got this amazing Tiger Lily hair clip from Sophisticated Lady Flowers earlier this spring that I absolutely love.  It seemed like the perfect fit for this dress.  I've owned these amazing Chinese Laundry shoes for some time now and decided just to commit to the wonderful color that it orange.  Originally I was going to wear black glasses but I decided to go for my true vintage 70s glasses-which I think give the whole outfit a completely different look and one that I haven't played around with too much at that.  This glasses are totally out of my norm in that they're half tinted and half light, but while shopping with Mrs. Khaos a few weekends ago I decided that I had to have them.  What do you all think?  Subtly rounding this look out, my bracelet is apart of a set that I got from Charming Charlie.

  1. This outfit is amazing! Orange and pink are my fav colous, so I am really loving all this orange! It can be pretty hard to find a good orange dress. It's such a great feeling to score a Bernie dress on eBay, too! :)

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 …
