Rainbow Store


All About the Outfit: 
How amazing is this dress?  It's from ModCloth's house brand and it debuted a month or two ago (I talked about it, and all other things amazing in the retro reproduction world HERE a short while back).  There's something so classic, timeless, fun, and ladylike all at once with this dress that I knew it had to be mine.  What I extra love about it is that while it's rainbow striped, the colors are slightly off from a typical ROYGBIV color scheme.  The red is really pink, there's both navy and pewter blues in it as opposed to a standard royal blue, and so forth.  Color me in love!  (See what I did there?)

Outfit Details:
Dress- ModCloth
Shoes- Bamboo via ModCloth
Necklace- Punky Pins (Sold Out)

Music Time!
New York Dolls!  New York Dolls!  They're one of my all-time favorite bands and I have yet to use them for a blog post.  Since they're not a mega household name they basically pre-dated all things punk and glam rock/metal and are the grandfathers of those genres of sorts.  (Everyone from the Ramones to Guns n Roses were influenced by them).  To me, they're a band that is genuinely rock and roll and not a cliche, for they sort of became the prototype to what most other rock bands would aspire to be in a cliche way.  Their music is more pure than any modern rock band I see "trying to rock," if that makes sense.  Anyway, I found about about them a little over a decade ago and just kind of perked up and became obsessed haha.  Here's a song from them, appropriate for this blog post, called, "Rainbow Store."

  4. This dress is gorgeous! I like it more on you than on the model. The colors remind me of the Crayola 'Bold' marker set. How tall are you? I can't tell if this would be too long on me or not.

  20. Spectacular dress! Rainbow hued clothing (and food) is a firm favourite of mine (I even have a Pinterest board devoted to the later :)). This dress is so immensely pretty and really, really looks incredible on you.

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!

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!  …
