Sunday Vintage: Middle Eastern Market Novelty Print

This skirt was not only one of my first ever true vintage purchases, but it's probably in my top 5 favorite pieces of clothing that I own.  The color scheme is perfection, the details are sick, and it's just so darn pretty!!  

 I paired this skirt with my olive Le Bomb Shop pinup cross halter.  One of my next 'Gaga for...' posts will be on these shirts!  So I'll save the raving about them for then.  That said, they are amazing + versatile...and cheap!  And this one in particular may as well have been made for this skirt!  This winter I bought these shoes on a whim on Amazon.  Truth, I have another pair in this brand (Michael Antonio) that I hate because they're too big.  These run a little big too, but they're not as bad.  And like the shirt, they go perfectly with the dress.  Instead of doing a hair flower I opted for a complimentary gold headband I got from Forever 21 instead of going the more "matchy matchy" route since I had already done that with the olive colors.
 Gotta show off that petticoat when I'm wearing one!!  (Hell Bunny via ModCloth)
 I've never tried a (non ballet) jumping shot before so I finally decided to try one with okay success (above).  I also tried my first ever laying down shots (below).  They were trickier, but I think it paid off!

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 …

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!  …
