Mixing Prints with Members Only

Hello and welcome back to my blog!  Today is special because it's basically a "these are a few of my favorite things" as I'm wearing 90% of my favorite brands!  Members Only is my favorite jacket brand.  Like, hands down!  They're comfortable and perfect for moderate weather (or buildings with too much air conditioning blasting around!).  I know I'm a California girl now, but it's been chillier here at night and that aforementioned air conditioning scenario happens daily, so these jackets have come in handy!  I'm wearing the Washed Satin Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy (size small for reference) and I totally recommend it as it's silky to the touch.  This jacket (and all other colors it comes in) are currently on sale for $65.

I got this Trashy Diva Tropical Sangria skirt 3-4 years ago when I made my first ever Trashy Diva purchase.  I love this skirt more than I ever thought I would (I was curious about how the burgundy and pinks would play out in person) and it's a huge staple of mine.  I paired the skirt this time with a ModCloth telephone print shirt as the phone is a reddish pink so I wanted to mix prints with these two pieces.  (To better see the two prints mixed, scroll below for a photo.)  I kept the purse (Kate Spade) and the shoes (Adidas Courtset via DSW) in the theme of light pink to play off the pinks in the skirt and to break up the burgundy in the background of the skirt and the Members Only Jacket.  
How's everyone been doing the past week?  Real talk: I'm borderline losing my mind!  But in a fun way.  I bit off more than I realized for January/February so I'm a little crazed.  But all of this hard work and time commitments are in the name of comedy and chasing my dreams, so I mean none of this as a complaint and more as a reason I haven't been blogging as much.  That all said, I've been catching up with getting outfit photos so I should be consistent again from here on out!

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 …
