ModCloth + Emily and Fin + J Crew Factory = Perfection

Excuse me, but this is my new favorite outfit!  I randomly threw it together for a Just Shair meeting last month (check out NEW episodes involving us playing "great" life coaches on YouTube HERE) and it was one of the happiest of outfit experiments!  I've said it before and I'll say it again, ModCloth and J Crew go amazing together!  There's something about the retro quirkiness that ModCloth generally brings mixed in with the bold color choices of J Crew (Factory) that just seem made for each other.  Very few Instagram fashionistas and style bloggers seem to combine the two brands, and it just baffles my mind!  

ModCloth is getting some help via Emily and Fin as the top is from MC but is the brand E&F.  I've gotten very into them this year and this top is amazing!  (See more of this top in a ModCloth video haul I did on YouTube!)  I don't always go for plaids but I just loved this pink-yet-autumnal plaid midi skirt (now on sale!) from J Crew Factory that I couldn't resist.  Making this mixing of prints pop further I wore my staple Kate Spade bag and my oldie but goodies Jessica Simpson sandal platforms via DSW.

How was everyone's weekend?  Mine was busy as my countdown to my move to LA has officially begun and goodbyes are happening!  I also filmed my last ever (?) segment with Just Shair!  Shanon and I are friends in real life outside our comedy project, so we will more than likely see each other again.  Depending on circumstances, we may film again in the future which is why I have a question mark after "last ever" filming.  We shall see!  For now follow us on Instagram to see announcements of the last few videos we have coming out and any future (silly) hangouts we capture when we visit in the future.  I hope everyone has had a great couple of days!

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!  …
