TOBI Leila Coral Sequin Shift Dress

Hello, friends!!  Who is ready for the weekend?  This DRESS is!  This dress from Tobi is just too much fun!  It's been too long since I've owned a sequin party dress, so this is a super fun addition to my wardrobe!  Redheads: never forget that gold and corals are your best friends!!  I feel like my fellow redheads often underplay colors from the orange family when it's actually a great color for us!  It gives us an overall rose gold hue to us, so have fun with oranges!

I have to admit I was nervous about this dress!  Tobi was sold out of XS, so upon seeing the back was stretchy and that the straps were adjustable I figured I could get away with a small...but was still nervous!  It'd say the small fits fine, although I must warn y'all, this dress is super short!  I know I have a lot of readers who prefer modest lengths, so I'd be remiss to not mention this.  However, with tights or even using dress shorts to convert this dress into a top, there are ways to wear this lovely piece even if it feels outside your comfort zone!

To round out the outfit, I'm wearing Kate Spade accessories, a jacket from TJ Maxx, and Chinese Laundry shoes via DSW

Hope everyone is having a great day!  As predicted, it's snowing here in Colorado today...yuck!  (There's a reason why I take outfit photos roughly a week or so out around here!!!)  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 ;)  Also...I may or may not have a new blog debuting in the next 24 hours, so stay tuned 😱

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 …
