Elephants and Showgirls

Welcome to Monday, my lovely readers!  I have a bit of a "thing" for yellow dresses AND elephants, so naturally this elephant dress by ModCloth (Festive Frondescence A-Line Dress in Safari) become mine!  (I can last be seen wearing this dress HERE.)  I love how it's a yellow dress with teals, reds, and browns.  I can honestly say it's nothing like anything else in my closet.  For today I paired it with mostly reds, as well as with my teal Kate Spade bag for an extra pop of color.   
Did you notice my brooch?  It's from Atomic Lucite and is an oh-so classy scene from the movie Showgirls.  Showgirls is a movie I consider an "accidental comedic masterpiece", so my life is basically made by owning this brooch now!!  Speaking of movies and pop culture, my NEW culture/comedy blog, Blair Uncensored is now open!!  It's going to be a bit of an experiment and will likely evolve some, but it'll mostly be an opinion blog where I try to fill the void on things I like in the world in a way that is not really being said by other people.  It will cover music, comedy, TV, and potentially other things in our culture at large.  Today I'm discussing the HBO show, Silicon Valley, for any who may be interested in reading up on that!  I hope everyone had a good weekend!

  1. This dress is beautiful! From the preview photo in my blog reader, I thought maybe it was a new Retrospec'd print, because it's SO detailed and vibrant! Big ups to Modcloth for upping their in-house print game. Also, that Atomic Lucite brooch is AMAAAAZING!

  2. I didn't notice the brooch---but it's fabulous!!
    Yellow is my favorite color, so I love this dress!

  3. Beautiful lady. You are stunning and I love the dress. It's such lovely colours, and you look amazing in it.
    Hope you're having a great week.
    Much love,

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!  …
