TGIF In Folter's Postcard Dress

Happy Friday, everyone!  Everyone have fun weekend plans?  Even though it's been a bummer fest of a summer weather wise lately, I really wanted an excuse to wear this oldie but goodie Folter postcard dress (once found on ModCloth).  It's shorter and a tighter fit than most other Folter dresses, so it just feels like a good "night out in the summertime dress."  I love how big the graphics are of infamous landmarks in US cities.  Plus, so many people travel during the summer so that feels fitting as well!

I had a lot of fun accessorizing this dress.  Initially it was overwhelming, as "all the colors" are in this dress and I almost didn't know where to begin!  But upon realizing what a fun touch my Kate Spade Mixed Tape Crossbody was with this dress, it got easier! I went for overall eclectic accessories with some matching others better than others.  Sometimes when you don't pick a central color theme it can mess up your outfit, but in the case of such a busy dress like this if you keep it (relatively) simple, you can't go wrong with using more than one color!  Rounding everything out I have coral earrings and a navy star necklace from Kate Spade, a Majong tile bracelet from Luxulite, an Atomic Lucite brooch featuring Peggy and Joan from Mad Men, and ModCloth black wedges.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  I'm going to try to do a rare Sunday post featuring my second month of practicing yoga, so look out for that!  And if you missed the first month of practicing yoga, CLICK HERE to read!

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!  …
