Trashy Diva Mahjong Skirt

Trashy Diva may be my favorite brand of 2017, or at least they're the brand that rose in the ranks the highest this past year.  I've been a fan for 3+ years but I wasn't as rabid as many other ladies.  The switch got flipped this year and now I'm just gaga for all things Trashy Diva.

I got this Mahjong skirt last year and it's easily one of my most worn pieces.  (This Mahjong Collection was also featured in one of my Twinsie Tuesday segments, which I'm hoping to bring back in 2018--moving across state lines and all of the prep work that came into that killed the series...temporarily).  

This is one of my favorite ways to style this skirt: this ModCloth Miami Moments red keys top, black Chuck Taylors, and my black and grey Kate Spade Ivy Street bag.  I've worn it this way several times and I took these photos after having a Denver in California reunion with one of my Denver best friends and his family over the Thanksgiving holiday.
I hope everyone had a good weekend!  I did improv and (without jinxing myself) I feel like I'm finally getting comfortable with performing it.  Or at least I'm getting there!  I also met a bunch of fellow aspiring comedians at a meeting a friend from high school invited me to (who's also doing comedy out here).  I can't get over how nice everyone in the comedy community has been so far.  It's been a lovely surprise and last night was no exception.  The rest of the weekend I got to relax a bit.  A lot of my classes are coming to an end over the next week and come 2018 I'll be starting up my second term, which is so crazy!  I'm not even 100% unpacked yet, ha!  Have a great Monday!

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 …
