PSA: Folter Maxi Dress Are AMAZING!!

One of my most worn dresses is THIS spooky forrest Folter maxi dress I got from Unique Vintage 2+ years ago.  Though I believe it's only made the blog one other time (when I saw the Foo Fighters) I seriously wear that dress ALL the time!  It's so comfortable and is so versatile that it's basically a dream come true.  Folter recently released a slew of new maxi dresses (I believe for the first time in a year or so), so unsurprisingly I had to get one.  I landed on this Pyramids Maxi Dress, and boy do I love it!  (Also available from Lovely in Lilac.) 

Like the spooky forrest dress, this dress is made from a silky fabric.  Most Folter (and Retrolicious) dresses are cotton, but it seems that they make exceptions for their maxi dresses.  Given how comfortable and smooth to the touch these are, I have zero complaints!  I've never seen a dress like this in that few maxi dresses have border prints like this.  Additionally, this is an off the beaten path "spooky" print.  Most gothic/creepy/etc prints involve skulls, something to do with the occult, and other Halloween-esq motifs.  Pyramids and moons are super original!  Plus the print is gently kissed by stars throughout the entire dress.

The fit is a tad interesting, however.  While it fits my body perfectly (size small for measure), I'm nearly 5'7" and without heels I look like a little girl playing dress up in her mommy's clothes because this dress is SUPER long!  The dress does have adjustable straps, so maybe if I play with them more I can fix the length a little.  But short girls: do not get unless you're committed to wearing heels with this dress!  Otherwise, this is a perfect dress!

Rounding out the outfit I have Kate Spade jewelry accessories (mostly from Poshmark), a BCBG bag, and Jessica Simpson platform sandals from DSW.  I wanted to keep the look simple and yet glamorous, and not go too eccentric or quirky since the dress stands alone.  Have you tried Folter's maxi dresses yet??

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 …
