Members Only: Sparkling Membership

About the Outfit:  Unless this is your first time visiting my blog (and if so, welcome!), you all know how much I love vintage.  While vintage usually translates to mid-century styles for me, I'm very into the 70s-80s looks--especially of the preppier variety as that look is so timeless.  (I blame discovering the sitcom, Soap, being on reruns on Comedy Central when I'd come home from summer AM cross country practices for this style love!)  

I had wanted a Members Only jacket for years and finally got my hands on a lavender one at the end of 2016 from Marshalls.  Well, you can only imagine my thrill when I was contacted by Members Only for a collaboration!  Their selection is by and far wider than I realized!  They have several jackets that are the iconic coats that most people think of when they think of Members Only, but they also have tons of fancier coats with different styles, cuts, and more.  You can check them all out at their website.  

I thought the Sequined Baseball Jacket looked like too much fun, so I'm thrilled to own it now!  I don't own any coats that are sparkly, so it's been very fun to play around with this jacket for me!  I've barely had the jacket a week, but I've already worn it twice: once here in these photos and over the weekend I wore this jacket to add some pizazz to a casual outfit when I got to meet Dinger outside of Coors Field (yay baseball season being upon us!).  I'm finding this piece from Members Only works with everything!!

I'm wearing a size small and I think it fits like a dream!

Style Details:  I wanted to wear the same color scheme for this particular look to really make the blue sequins pop.  I also wanted to first debut this jacket on the blog with a dress in my normal style to show off how well the jacket goes with my usual look, but I have several other ideas for more casual as well as fancy looks (stay tuned).  And my Kate Spade tape cassette bag seemed too perfect with my ModCloth retro computer print dress (Turn Back Timeless A-Line Dress in Typist--size XS) as they're both older forms of technology!

Earrings/Necklace/Bag: Kate Spade (all sold out from the site but I found mine earring necklace set on Poshmark and my bag on Gilt, and you may have luck there too!)
Jacket- Members Only
Dress- Modcloth
Shoes- Ralph Lauren (sold out) via DSW (great Ralph Lauren finds here!) 


I hope everyone is having a great week!  Mine has been busy with no stopping insight.  It's allegedly going to snow here in a few days, and I'm less than thrilled as I've become totally spoiled with the consistent warm weather we're having!!  Other than that I don't have much news to report!  Happy Wednesday!!

  2. I remember seeing the classic members only jacket, but had no idea that they made other styles. This one is so cute too. Hello, anything that sparkles gets my vote haha! I hope it doesn't snow too bad for you. I'm already in a spring time frame of mind lol.

  3. What a fun jacket! I've heard of Members Only before, but have never checked out their shop, I'll have to because this jacket is too cute and can be styled in so many ways! I love the way you've styled it with the dress and that super cute bag, too! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

  12. I've visiting the mod cloth website several times and have been wanting to order many dresses. The only problem is I don't fit they would fit petite frames like my own. Loving the retro/ vintage vibes of this outfit and your red hair!

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 …
