Flowers with Emily and Fin

Happy Friday!  Here's a quick post featuring one of Emily and Fin's new prints (and from what I can tell on Instagram, one of their most popular 2017 styles)!  I'm such a sucker for green dresses so I definitely needed their Lulu Dress in Square Garden (ModCloth's name for it, where I got it, is the Vintage Inspired Vim-A Line Dress).  I purchased this from ModCloth because it's easier to get Emily and Fin dresses through them because ModCloth is in the US (Emily and Fin is a UK brand).  I kind of messed up though and ordered an XS instead of an XXS.  I've found the latter fits me better in Emily and Fin dresses but blanked on that while ordering this late and night (probably because I'm a true XS for the ModCloth house brand?).  It definitely came a little big, but I shrank it in the wash somewhat.  It looks okay, but once I belted it the dress became next level.  So for measure, I'd say my across the board experience with E&F is that I'm between sizes but both XS and XXS can work with a little tweaking here and there.  Personally, I find the XS to be slightly large everywhere and the XXS to be comfortable in the bust and tighter (but not too tight) in the waist.

Style Tip: Red always goes with floral prints, especially ones based in greens as all red flowers have green stems.  It's easy to think red and green clash or make an outfit Christmas-y, but in reality it's a color scheme found in nature.  While there isn't any red in this print, I used a red belt because of this and it gives it an extra POP.  That, and I couldn't find a white or pink belt! Regardless, the red works in a print like this so definitely consider red in the future as an accessory to your floral dresses--even if they're green!  
Please note my brooch: Atomic Lucite made a My Girl brooch and as it was my FAVORITE movie growing up, I had to get it.

Who has fun weekend plans?  Mine are pretty tame so far, with some social stuff going on but I will mostly be doing photoshoots and working on getting my new culture blog off the ground so I can debut it THIS WEEK.  Reminder: I've changed my Insta and Twitter handles both to @blairosaurus_rex (click to follow on Insta and Twitter) and have a new Facebook page for this blog and other projects coming up (HERE).  Please follow because I'll love you forever ;)  
XOXO

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 …
