Treasure

Thursday Weekend Announcements:
Sorry, folks!  When I got back to Denver, I hit the ground running HARD and I've been barely able to catch my breath.  I'm very much looking forward to a calmer week ahead, in which blogging will be a top priority!  Here's some of the stuff that's been making up my bonkers schedule, including possibly the coolest blog related opportunity I've gotten yet!  Anyone else having a bananas crazy summer too??
  • New Just Shair video!  We discuss bad lyrics in a multi-part series on bad lyrics (looking at you next...hip hop) that probably every last one of you can agree with and laugh at.  This week it's general top 40 hits.  I mean, seriously...it sounded like "Jeremy" spoke something important, so why did you mumble your words, Pearl Jam?  And WHY did the Spice Girls proclaim that "if you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends?"  Like...ew.
  • I've made two videos for the blog's YouTube channel over the past week; I review a brand that's my go-to for necklaces (Punky Pins) and I unbox my latest ModCloth box in the second video.
Punky Pins Review
ModCloth Unboxing
  • And finally, exciting news...a few days ago I got to model for Glo Minerals make-up for some upcoming fall products that will be released in the fall ;)  Stay tuned...!


All About the Outfit: This skirt is from 1138 Clothing.  It's a treasure map and I totally love it.  I own a My Little Pony Jumper from them and always enjoy looking through their store.  A lot of their prints are based off of comic book and super hero stuff, which isn't really my jam, but it's fun to look at.  And there's always at least 5 items I want despite the comic book heavy options, so clearly there's something for everyone!!

Style Details:  I wanted to play with neutrals a bit for this look, but with some femininity in pale pinks too.  And my green brooch was just fun to add to make something POP.

Top- Forever 21
Necklace- DSW
Brooch- Deer Arrow
Bag- Kate Spade
Skirt- 1138 Clothing
Shoes- Bamboo brand from ModCloth (sold out but currently available at Oblong Box Shop)

Music Time! I like Bruno Mars.  There, I've said it.  I've heard fellow music snobs criticize him to no end, and while I understand aspects of it...I can't. help. myself.  He's catchy and reminds me of the sensibilities of old school Motown.  I'm a fan, Bruno.  And, considering he has a song called "Treasure" it seemed perfect for a treasure map print skirt!

I hope everyone has an awesome rest of your weekend!!

  22. This skirt is absolutely adorable! I've browsed 1138's shop before, but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    Yay for your super-awesome modeling opportunity! I cannot get over how utterly glamorous you are in that BTS shot -- the hair is just killing me! Was it fun?

  26. Fantastic outfit - the gold details are slaying me. I really, really love gold fashions and accessories (my fave of such that I currently own is a champagne gold pair of sparkly high heels that always come out to play during the winter holiday season - natch! :)).

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!  …
