Long Sleeved Shirt Dress Season!

Hey, everyone!  My goodness, life has been nutty lately!  I'm so behind on posting!  Luckily today not only features a new blog post but it has a corresponding video!  That's right, I'm finally getting back into the YouTube game.  After almost a year off (not counting Just Shair) I've decided it's time to go back into reviewing clothes, make-up, and books on YouTube PLUS I will be adding my own comedy videos on my channel later this year.  Please subscribe because I'll totally love you forever (click HERE)! 


The dress I'm wearing is from ModCloth and it's called the Most Delightful to Date Shirt Dress.  If you click the above video, you will see that I appropriately make fun of this name (sorry, ModCloth). I really love this dress because I love those late 1960s-early 1970s dresses that have a secretary feel.  There's bonus points for this dress as there's a LOT of mixing prints, which is basically my favorite thing ever.  This is a perfect fall dress because it keeps you a little covered up while the temperature drops. Plus the colors suit autumn really well!  

The fit is good, but it is a little tight in the waist.  I better explain that in my video so please watch!  One of the better things about this dress is that it is button up, which are one of my favorite styles of dresses in 2017.  I unbuttoned the top two buttons to be slightly less covered up, but it's not scandalous because a bow covers that anyway.  Best of both worlds?  Rounding out the look are shoes from Nine West and my first ever Kate Spade bag from YEARS ago!

Like my patio furniture?  I took these photos on a day where I just didn't feel like moving them for the shoot!  Oops!  It's not even hard to move them; I was just lazy.


I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I did!  I'm going to talk more about that in the coming days though!  Check out my Instagram (link below) if you want a heads up about what's been going down in my world!  Ta-ta!
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!

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!  …
