ModCloth IRL Day!

Greetings!  Before I get to the outfit post, let me share some happenings with y'all!
  • If you are in Denver, whether you shop at ModCloth or not, come to this event TONIGHT!  If you've shopped there before, you've probably received an RSVP like this in your email and can come at 5PM.  But if you haven't, it's open to the public at 6PM.  Events are all weekend and I will be there again at least on Friday.  Check out who's hosting... ;)  
  • In non-style news, my comedy team is having quite the field day--literally--as we are pretending to be in the Olympics for oh-so-real events like thumb wrestling and Pop Tart "cook offs".  I'm not going to lie...this has been a LOT OF FUN to shoot and some of my favorites haven't even been released yet!  Check us out on social media to follow (Blog/Facebook/YouTube/Twitter/Instagram) to follow the insanity!  And here's a few favorite stills from our "events" so far plus our first of 4 Olympic videos.  This one is on the weirdness of the torch, Parade of Nations, and Olympic Village.




All About the Outfit:  
In honor of working with ModCloth today, I'm wearing (almost) head to toe ModCloth!  Come August I love wearing black, because it feels so summery against lighter colors making an outfit (and a potential tan) pop!  I'm obsessed with this hedgehog shirt (I reviewed this brand of shirt HERE and unboxed this actual shirt in a video HERE!) and I thought it would be perfect to pair it with the now out of print flamingo color of the Breathtaking in Tiger Lilies skirt (I reviewed those skirts HERE).  

How about you friends?  Is black a strictly colder months color for you or do you like to rock it during the summer as well?
Style Details: 
Glasses- Gap
Top- ModCloth (Size small for measure)
Skirt- ModCloth (different hues found HERE)
Shoes- ModCloth (no longer available)
Bag- BCGB via Marshalls 

So again, if you are in Denver, definitely stop on by the ModCloth IRL event tonight (and shop there throughout September 5th!).  Hope to see you there!!  FYI: I'm such a space case with identifying people from the Internet in a real life context, so don't take it personally if we say hi and it takes a second for the light bulb to go off in my head!  (It will eventually go off though!  I promise, haha).

  2. Oh my god, how exciting! I can't wait to hear about how it went!! The outfit is absolutely perfect -- tops with tie-necks are extra fun. I haven't ordered anything from Modcloth in months, but I have a few things in my cart that I'm ready to pull the trigger on.

    Hope you had a blast!!

  3. Oh, I wish I was in Denver to meet you at the Modcloth event! How exciting that you'll be there. I hope you have an AMAZING time!! You know, I typically don't wear too much black in the summer, but ever since you made the comment about me looking good in black and that I should wear more of it, I do haha! So, thank you for the advice =)

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!

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!  …

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 …
