Sunday Vintage: 70s Patchwork Maxi Dress

 I love me some 70s dresses!  The louder and bolder...the better!  I got this in the very late fall from a vintage eBay seller and I totally love it!  It's been the perfect dress to wear not only during the weird balmy winter days we have in Colorado, but also the somewhat chilly and overcast spring days we have here as well.  Maxi dresses really are for every season, aren't they?!  Hopefully I'll be wearing shorter dresses throughout the next few months, but I'll be super excited to whip out my inner Marcia Jan Brady once the autumn comes around again.  These Nine West platform wedges feel like they were made for this dress!  
Below I show off two different sunglass styles I thought went nicely with this dress.  First are my awesome vintage/secondhand find I found at my local Buffalo exchange that scream the 1970s with their oversized frames and faded tints:
But of course, aviators work well with ANY 70s outfit as well so I had to feature my favorite pair of golden aviators from H&M as well:
What's YOUR favorite decade to dress in?  I'm partial to the 40s-60s, but these 1970s dresses and some of their wide leg pants give those earlier decades a real run for their money!

  1. This patch work is amazing! I've never seen a dress like this before. My favorite decade is the 1950s. I also love the 1940s-1960s, but the 50s are my absolute favorite.

    1. Thank-you! Those are some good decades style wise for sure!!!!!

  2. Beautiful dress! I almost thought it was two separate pieces. :D Great wedges, too!

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!

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 …
