I'm on Have Clothes, Will Travel today!

Greetings!  First off, I apologize for being slow on all fronts this week.  I haven't posted much, have not responded to comments and/or checked out your blogs, and have been hit or miss with social media.  I had some deadlines plus I'm coming down with one of those elusive summer colds AND I've managed to go to two concerts this week, so everything else has taken a back seat.  Phew, glad this week is just about done!  I am going to be more consistent with all things blogging very soon!  

Until then, I have a post up at one of my favorite blogs hosted by one of my favorite blogger friends, Have Clothes, Will Travel and Lindsey, respectively.  She's got some great style, which I'm featuring below so you know what I'm talking about if you don't already follow her.  (You should if you don't!) I really enjoyed being her Featured Fashionista for July because she asked some really insightful questions that gave me an awesome platform to share my thoughts on blogging, the bigger picture about why I blog (plus other projects coming down the pipe), and more of who I really am.  Please check it out!

Plus she's hosting a $50 ModCloth gift certificate giveaway.......!!!!

Some of Lindsey's great style:
And a photo of us twinning:
Remember her because she may or may not be making a cameo on here sooner than later ;)


  1. I will definitely check her blog out! I loved the two photos, with the same skirt! Don't worry about not being able to post things or read blogs - I remember once, when I had the same kind of thing and a nice blogger wrote me "life is what happens outside the blogosphere, so do what you have or need to and just have fun" :) That was so good to me :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. w00t! Congrats! <3

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!  …
