A Bird in the Hand

All About the Outfit:
This is one of my favorite dresses from Pinup Girl Clothing!  (Junebugs dress in Blue Birdcage print).  I own the orange and pink version too (seen here), as well as the solid green and pink style (seen here).  If I acquire the squirrel print one, my collection will be complete!  The fit is perfect (XS for measure) and it's super comfortable as well.  Plus, while vintage inspired with a demure collar, I think it passes for an any era sundress as well.  I believe this is the first time I've had this dress photographed for the blog, or even for an Instagram snap, though I have worn this a few times since getting it late this winter in one of PUG's famous Yard Sales!  I think this dress is my favorite dress from PUG (so far...)!

PS- Thanks for tolerating a brief time-out from blogging the past week!

Outfit Details:
Dress- Pinup Girl Clothing (on sale!)
Brooch- Luxulite
Belt- Bernie Dexter
Shoes- Bamboo via ModCloth (also on The Oblong Box Shop)

Music Time:
Nobody can accuse me of not zigging when one thinks I may zag.  I scream until I'm blue in the face about how much I love punk, indie, and metal but then I quickly turn around and get giddy about gangsta rap.  Ice Cube is one of my favorite rappers (I saw him nearly 4 years ago!) and he has a song "A Bird in the Hand" off of his 1991 Death Certificate album.    The content of the song has nothing to do with the print, other than having birds in common.  This song is catchy and aggressive at once, which to me is a fairly unique combination.  And, I've said it before and I'll say it again: I find rap music to be amongst some of the most interesting and insightful poetry of the modern era and this song is not an exception to that rule.

And so nice that you have so many of the dresses, hope you buy the one to complete the collection, the squirrel one :) Your shoes are also so beautiful! It's fine to be out a bit, like one of my blogger friends told me when it happened to me too "life s what happens while we are not posting" :) Hope you have a very nice weekend!

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!  …
