Lindy Bop Dinosaur Dress

If you've been reading my blog or following me on Instagram for a while you likely know two things: 1) I love me some novelty print dresses and 2) I love anything dinosaur themed in regards to clothing.  So when I saw this Lindy Bop Joy Green Dinosaur Swing dress (also available in skirt form) it pretty quickly became mine!

Lindy Bop does some of the best prints out there but sometimes I don't "love" the styles they come in.  I do love shirt and collar dresses so I was pretty stoked to find that their dinosaur print came in this style!  The fit is pretty good, though it's not my favorite....and sadly I can't pinpoint why!  I don't dislike it...there's just a lack of a reason to say "fits me like a glove."  But I really do like it and am thrilled it matches my Kate Spade triceratops purse (can Kate Spade make even MORE dinosaur purses already, please??) and my lavender Chinese Laundry shoes.  I own a solid majority of the dinosaur brooches from Erstwilder so naturally I paired one them, the Thrill Neck Dinosaur Brooch, with this outfit!
Pet dinosaur purses need to pet, y'all!

As you likely heard, I am moving to Los Angeles in just a few short days.  I am trying really hard to keep up with blogging but with packing, goodbyes, and a never ending list of errands to make my move easier I am struggling a tad.  I promise after the next week or so I'll have a more steady blogging schedule again.  I'm doing okay on Twitter (especially with my silly polls I survey people on daily) and IG stories, so please follow the social media listed below to stay in touch with me if I'm not blogging enough for your heart's content!  For now I will blog again either later this week....OR early next week.  I can keep that 'one or the other' promise!  Have a lovely time until then!

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!  …
