A Very Sonic Youth Xmas

All About the Outfit:  Pinup Girl Clothing recently released new striped skirts that are basically the Cabana skirts that I kicked myself for not getting before they sold out (though I did track down the blue one over the summer!).  Though I don't celebrate Christmas, I knew these were limited stock and I'm a huge fan of red and green together.  I can see myself wearing this a ton come spring and summer so I'm super excited for this!  For now I decided to play along with the Christmas game, but in a way only I could with adding some purple (purple goes with EVERYTHING!), a Sonic Youth tee, and a brooch by Atomic Lucite of Clark Griswold and Uncle Eddie from Christmas Vacation.

My comedy duo, Just Shair, recently did a Christmas video too and parts get kind of silly involving why parents don't actually give coal to bad kids and how Santa probably has white privilege.  Please watch, enjoy, and subscribe!
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!  I'm hoping to post daily the rest of the week, but I've been super tired lately and am finishing a move currently so I'd hate to over promise!  I do have content ready to go though, so here's to hoping!  XO

  6. I'll never argue with adding purple to anything. haha. The idea of Santa having white privilege is pretty funny too.

  12. Yes, trespassing! For the sake of Christmas spirit :) Well, I would find it sweet, but I confess I would prefer to be in peace :) Poor carolers, but I don't like that, because it makes me cry :( There was once some in Austria, but at the time I didn't cry, though now I do even at Tv ads :) Loooved your skirt and Sonic Youth T-shirt and the shoes, wow! Always looking great! Wishing you a great new year's eve! Thanks for always being so sweet towards me, really!

  17. Green and purple are such a fab combo, but throw some red in and you just upped the cool factor! Even though you don't celebrate Christmas, this skirt would be great for the holiday season. I'm excited to see how you'll style it other times too because I always have a hard time with green and red when it's not the holiday season. My mind always says "ooh that's too Christmasy" and I shy away from it.

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 …
