Unique Stylings with Seasonal Colors in TOBI Dresses

It's that time of year where suddenly all hues are in pinks and reds!  I'm not one to celebrate hardly any holidays, but even I can't resist indulging in these color schemes as they are amongst my favorite colors to wear!  Using three looks featuring Tobi dresses, here are unique ways to style these colors this time of year so you won't look like everyone else!  (All dresses are XS for measure.)

Give a lacy dress some attitude!
Outfit Details:
Glasses: Steve Madden via Marshalls
Jacket: Wrangler
Dress: Tobi
Shoes- Thrifted

Anything lacy, demure, or ultra feminine goes weirdly well with rocker chic.  I don't know why and I don't make the rules, but I'm not complaining!  It was so much fun giving this Wanderlust Wine  Lace Maxi dress an attitude!  Combat boots and a lacy maxi dress is a really fun option.  For this look I chose my Wrangler cropped denim jacket, but I almost went with my black faux leather jacket and that look would have been fun too.  

Try a relaxed and sporty look!
Outfit Details:
Dress: Tobi
Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW

Often with shift dresses I go for a heel (see below) as they're not really form fitting and therefore not overtly sexy and can handle a heel.  I totally love that wearing sneakers and retro jackets with everything is in fashion, so I utilized my love in this styling of Tobi's Swoop in Rose Shift Dress.  The glitter on these Steve Madden sneakers give it a pop of fun and the burgundy laces match my burgundy Members Only jacket.  Tying this outfit together is my blush Kate Spade bag, which perfectly matches the dress.

Add a pop of color and some quirk for fun!
Outfit Details:
Necklace: Erstwilder
Dress: Tobi
Shoes: Nine West

Shift dresses, like this Whitney Burgundy Shift Dress are super on trend right now.  I personally think it's fun to mix trend with quirk/novelty, like by using this giraffe Erstwilder necklace with this dress.  I'm perhaps a rare breed who loves wearing yellow and believes yellow matches EVERYTHING.  But the yellow in the necklace with my Nine West flax pumps in mustard yellow really make this outfit pop.  Most people wear blacks with burgundy, which is great.  But don't be afraid to have fun and make bold color blocking choices!!

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend and I will catch you guys next week!

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 …
