What I Wore to Improv #2

Is this the most "normal" outfit I've ever worn on Grace Rock Kelly Roll??  Perhaps!  As I mentioned last week, wearing pants/shorts and sneakers has become a huge must in my world!  I'm taking improv classes at the Upright Citizen's Brigade and wearing 1950s dresses is just not conducive to being lost in a scene if you end up on the floor or something!

I've always maintained that I love pants despite being more of a dress and skirt girl, but often I mean fun 1970s denim (thanks, Wrangler!) or literal crazy pants with fun patterns and colors.  These skinny jeans from Gap Factory are definitely all-American but I totally love them.  They're comfortable as they have a bit of stretch (size 2 for measure.  Full disclosure: they are slightly big on me but a size 0 was not available.  I almost think 0 would have been a bit too snug) and go with everything.  They're also perfect for learning and perfecting the art of improv!

I'm obsessed with these pink Adidas sneakers (from DSW) and they match the pink stars in my sweatshirt, also from Gap Factory (similar).  My Kate Spade lemon handbag adds a bit of pop to the outfit and technically makes this outfit of the mixing prints variety (I never resist, can I??).  It may seem excessive to wear a sweatshirt in Los Angeles but lately it hasn't been as hot.  Plus the air conditioned is being blasted in most buildings, so layering is important!

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 …
