Orange You Glad For This 1960s Outfit?

Good Wednesday to all!  How's everyone's week been going?  Mine's been a little bit busy and the weather has been lame and rainy.  We actually had our first thunderstorm yesterday, and boy did my afraid-of-everything Border Collie NOT handle it well.  She's historically afraid of thunderstorms, but after the first clap yesterday she bolted into the dog cage (which is her sister's, not hers) and immediately popped a squat (after drinking a TON of water within the hour).  I was on the couch and saw the whole thing so I got up and (gently) tried to tell her to stop, which made her feel so bad she immediately started trying to lick up the pee.  I've never seen that, ever.  So yeah, now the dog bed that is in the cage is on my patio airing out after cleaning it with some chemicals.  YIKES. I'm considering getting a Thunder Jacket now.  I've never considered it because I think it helps with pressure changes from a storm, which my dog reacts to as well.  But she's so conditioned to be afraid all things loud noises, like fireworks, trucks backfiring, my electric guitar, etc that I wasn't sure it would help entirely.  Now I just want anything that will curb her erratic behavior because it's getting worse with age!  Does anyone have any experience with Thunder Jackets and their pets?!?!

ANYWAY, the outfit!  I had a lot more fun styling this outfit than I originally thought.  This Work to Play Dress from ModCloth is such a great homage to the 60s.  I originally knew I'd immediately pair it with my mustard Nine West flax pumps (similar), but was kind of clueless past that.  I saw my lizard brooch from Erstwilder while combing through my accessories and decided that that with my Kate Spade neon orange purse and eBay oversized sunglasses that it orange would be a fun color to play with on this dress.  I've been in a much more simple mood style wise lately, so it was fun to play unexpected colors with each other like I used to!

  1. That dress is sooo cute on you! And I adore that bright peach color that that purse is! :)
    Aw your poor little doggy! Hope the jacket will help her.

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 …
