Hey, all! Happy Monday! I want to share some stuff that's been going on in my life but first let's discuss the outfit!! Happy Halloween! Though I wear "spooky" prints all year, of course I had to debut one on the blog today!
This is another gem from Folter that I got from Lovely in Lilac. (Seriously, Lovely in Lilac is the greatest source for Folter and Retrolicious dresses besides their actual home sites!!) The print is of monsters and other colorful characters drinking potions at a bar, so the name of this dress in Unhappy Hour. Get it? It's a new favorite of mine for sure! The dress is darker, so it's easy to pair black with it. But it has browns and navy too, so really any color of a layering piece would totally work with this dress! This time I went with my green jacket as there are also tons of green in the dress too!
Here are some shots without my Forever 21 jacket so you can see the fit of the dress and a close up of my triceratops Kate Spade bag--because I'm obsessed with taking shots like this!
I've been in LA for around 10 days now and honestly...I'm kind of loving it!! I thought over this move very thoroughly and though I would have never left Denver if I didn't feel confident in my ability to pursue my dreams out here and make a life for myself, of course I was a little nervous! Moving to LA was/is a huge life change and it promised no guarantees. I felt like my game plan to take as many classes at Second City and Upright Citizen's Brigade to start working towards my comedic goals and to meet liked minded people to work with (and hopefully befriend) was solid, but I had no idea if it would be hard at first. I also considered the fact that this whole plan may also be super intimating.
Luckily I can report that things truly couldn't be going better! (Knock on wood!) I've started most of my classes and I cannot state enough that everyone is SO NICE! Considering Chris Farley and Martin Shortt are all over the walls at Second City and Amy Poehler was one of the founding members of UCB, I had no idea if people would be competitive or aloof or what. But everyone is kind and supportive that it's impossible to feel intimidated. And in two of my classes no less than 2 people (in each class) also moved out here mere weeks ago for similar reasons that I did, so I feel like I'm in good company and I feel officially validated and sane for moving my entire life to Los Angeles to pursue this. I'm having the time of my life so far and will definitely be updating y'all on my journeys more and more! Though I am private by nature, I'm going to be making an attempt to share a little more about life here on blog land! I hope you enjoy! Happy Halloween 💀
