ModCloth's It's an Inspired Taste Dress in Birds Dress

Hello and welcome to another Friday!  I've been slow at posting this week due to some BIG things I'm cooking up in life.  I know that's cryptic (😜) but I will announce what's up when things are more gelled, which I'm hoping will be as early as next week ::knock on wood::  I did get to posting on Blair Uncensored a few times though, including a piece about Disney World mythologies and why Grace Kelly isn't more famous in death than she is.  Have at it if you need some weekend reading!

Unfortunately the dress I'm wearing is from last year. and is discontinued  It's by ModCloth and it was called It's an Inspired Taste Dress in birds (it also came in vegetables and in the solid color sage).  ModCloth tends to re-release a bunch of cuts/styles in different prints seasonally or yearly and I was really hoping this one would make the rounds again this past summer or into this fall.  Maybe it eventually will, but so far there's no sign of it.  This is one of my favorite ModCloth house brand dresses, so I'm bummed!  My other favorite is the Biking Through Brussels dress, which I have a few prints in.  I wore the solid green one to host the ModCloth IRL Denver opening party and MY FAVORITE is the yellow houndstooth with a floral print all over it.  And by "favorite" I mean "literally one of my favorite dresses...EVER!"  They released a new Biking Through Brussels dress a few weeks back but so far it's the only one and while it's lovely I'm not super wild about it.  C'mon, ModCloth!  More Biking Through Brussels dresses please and please re-release the It's an Inspired Taste dress!  Thanks!  What are YOUR favorite ModCloth dresses?

Part of why I love this birds print so much is that it has flamingos on it--which I'm not immune to loving on my clothes--but it also has what appears to be pelicans on the print.  It's rare to have a mixed print involving flamingos, so I like the diversity considering pink flamingos against a white backdrop is pretty dime a dozen.  I wanted to round out this outfit using teals to make everything pop, so I went for my teal Old Navy flip flops, Erstwilder dinosaur brooch, and my Kate Spade flamingo bag in teal.  Instead of mixing prints I matched prints with my purse...which is rare in my world!

You guys have fun weekend plans?  I'm going to be working on stuff more or less all weekend, but I'm cool with that!  See you all on Monday!
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 …
