What I Wore to Improv #3: Andrew WK Black Outfit

Shirt: Andrew WK Concert Tee (similar_
Jeans: Free People Denim Super Flare (similar)

In case I haven't explained it thoroughly, improv sometimes presents a challenge for me in regards to how to dress.  I've never been an "#alldressalways" girl as I do love fun pants and shorts, but it's been years and years and years since I've had to wear pants on the regular.  Performance based classes, such as improv, are forcing me to do so.  Why?  One can never predict what will be asked to do in these classes.  I've found myself running, doing dance moves, crawling around the ground like an animal and more in my improv classes and rehearsals.  Wearing a dress would make me self conscious about accidentally revealing too much and limit my scope of adding to a scene--which would be terrible.  So suddenly I'm wearing pants a ton!

These flared jeans from Free People are pretty awesome for a vintage loving gal like myself.    (Size 24 for reference, though I prefer size 25 on record as these are pretty gosh darn tight!)  Regardless of if flared/bell bottom pants are on trend or not I've consistently been a fan since high school.  What can I say?  I love 1970s era clothing through and through and I personally find the flare cut flatters me.  

As you likely know, I'm a mega Andrew WK fan.  His uniform consists of an all white outfit, so I feel like I'm wearing the inverse of his usual look.  On my first day of improv I wore skinny jeans from ModCloth with a neon Andrew WK tank and this outfit was from my final class of improv 101, so it was a nice full circle moment.  (I started level 201 yesterday!!  Moving on up!)  I wore nearly this exact outfit to my graduation show (I substituted the shirt for a Sonic Youth tee) and you can check those photos out on my Instagram!

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 …
