Barbie on Barbie Outfit

All About the Outift:  I apologize for the accidental groundhog's day!  I take photos in advance and try to be mindful about spacing, but I totally failed all around this week!  I wore this shirt in yesterday's post and I'm rocking these shoes in Monday's post (and will again tomorrow in at least one outfit pic for my second part of the Most Worn Vintage Brands of 2016 post).  Whoops.  I suppose this means I'm off to an absent minded 2017, no?  Ha.  

ANYWAY, blogger friend Camilla of Miss Milla Cherry posted a preview of HER blog post on this Barbie skirt a few week's back and I immediately began foaming at the mouth.  I not only love Barbie, but anything vintage Barbie grabs my heart pretty quickly!  I immediately bought this piece from Dazey LaRue and to my surprise, it came lightning quick!  I should explain my surprise; Dazey LaRue makes custom sized skirts on Etsy, so I believed it may come after a few weeks or so.

I have to admit that I am MEGA impressed with this skirt!  It's not only well done, but the fabric reminds me of vintage fabrics in the touch and the weight of it.  As you all know, vintage skirts are kind of my favorite thing ever so this was a pleasant surprise.  Vintage fabrics are also somewhat better quality, so there's that too!  The second the weather gets consistently pleasant around here I'm going to be wearing this bad boy full time!  (These photos were aken on one of Denver's "unseasonably" warm days).  

Style Details:
Necklace: Erstwilder (similar)
Shirt- Gap (similar)
Skirt- Dazey LaRue
Shoes- Jeffrey Campbell (similar

I hope everyone's been having a great week!  This week has been kind of flying by for me, personally.  I think it's because my to-do list is a mile high despite finally being all moved in.  Anyone anxious for the weekend or happily trucking along?  I have a big post coming tomorrow, so please stay tuned!  XO

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!  …
