Award Winning Horses

 Hey, all!  How awesome is this horse dress from ModCloth?  (It's called the Broadcast Coordinator Sleeveless Shirtdress in Horses).  The color scheme is rare with the background being a salmon pink with tons of other pinks, mustard yellows, and deep teals being on the print.  I wore this dress to a comedy sketch group meeting two or so weeks back (I'm behind in posting, as you can tell) and someone there pointed out that there are ribbons on the dress as well, thus ensuing lots of jokes about how if you're going to wear a dress with horses on it that they BETTER be award winning horses!  Oh, comedy life!

This dress is great, but I almost wish I got a small over an extra small.  The middle button is difficult to button even when on a hanger and trying to button it on me is an almost impossible task.  The waist also runs small, making this challenge even harder.  So if you get this Broadcast Coordinator dress in this print or other prints, consider sizing up!

I'm obsessed with this J Crew Factory polka dot cardigan because yellow is my favorite color and the tiny polka dots is a subtle way of mixing prints.  New to my roster is this yellow wicker purse from Pinup Girl Clothing.  I've been drooling over this one and it's lavender twin for years now and over Black Friday I finally broke down and got the yellow one.  Not only do I love it, but it's a lot roomier than expected!!  I don't bring a laptop bag to all of my classes but sometimes I need a bigger bag to fit beverages, snacks, etc as I'm out of the house for a long time.  I wore this bag to my last class at Second City and fit a Diet Coke, Zone Bar, plus keys, wallet, compact, cell, etc!  It's deceptively roomy!

Rounding out this outfit is perhaps my favorite brooch of all time, my Erstwilder Ruby the Boobie brooch (she was also a hit at the meeting!) and my new favorite Adidas shoes from DSW.  Sorry I haven't been wearing heels as much, friends!  I still do wear them but weirdly never on days I do photographs!  I'll work on that in 2018!!
If you are celebrating Christmas this weekend I wish you a merry Christmas!  I'll have a post or two next week and then after the New Year I'll have more content each week for you.  I'm not celebrating this week but I feel celebratory as it looks like I'm finally going to the beach tomorrow!  And I'm bringing my dogs!  Check out my Instagram for pics!  And if you're into the holidays, I'll be tweeting weird polls about Christmas and New Years (my Twitter is more comedy based than fashion, to be fair) so if you want to be entertained please follow me!  Have a great weekend/holiday!  Stay safe!

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 …
