Winter Blues and Flamingos

All About the Outfit:  Who says flamingoes are only for summer?!  Not me!  Especially when you pair them with teals and blues, which are quintessential winter colors, and I vote that flamingoes magically become year round and for all geographic locations!  I keep flirting with more and more monochromatic looks, and this one was a fun for me to do!  I almost grabbed a teal bag instead of this Kate Spade circular dotted one, but I realized it would match subtly so I used it for a pop of something instead!

Style Details:  
Brooch- Luxulite via Coconette Oz
Shoes- Steve Madden via DSW

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend!  Can you believe it's already mid-January?  I personally never mind when this time of year goes by fast as I'm always reading for swimming weather, ha!  XO

  3. You look so good in this shade of blue! Also, this Kate Spade bag is adorable. I really love the circle bag shape that is trending. Hope you have a wonderful weekend dear.

  4. Loved the colors you chose, I like when color is worn in the winter, not only a camel coat or black, so, well done, you look really amazing with the flamingoes! Loved the bag as well, I think you did it right picking that one! Really a very stylish outfit to cheer up any winter day! Hope you have a nice Saturday!

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!  …
