OMG! Outfit Post!


Look what the cat dragged in! I've always insisted that I haven't quit blogging, and while I still believe that I'd more than understand if you doubted me.  As you know, my life has had a series of changes that have changed my schedule and my wardrobe slightly.  Recently I got some fun pics with my friend, Elizabeth McIrvin, a talented photographer and comedian, so I decided to throw them up on the blog.

I intend to start blogging more.  I make no promises as to how quickly it'll snowball into regular blogging nor about how many outfit posts will make the blog regularly (I want to start blogging a bit more about my comedy life and I have a bunch of posts on deck about grief and misunderstandings about it, inspired by the loss of my mom this summer).  But I promise I haven't forgotten blog land!

Without further ado, here's some photos from a fun day out and about with my friend Liz!


Fun facts!
  • The dress is from Folter, which I believe is now defunct? I've been semi-out of the loop this past year but it seems like that brand is done but their sister and cheerier site, Retrolicious, is still kicking.  I'm not sure if spooky prints like this will be sold there or not.
  • This is actually one of my favorite outfits of all time.  I wore this dress with my Barbie Jeffrey Campbell shoes to my penultimate Denver birthday party and wore it around town several times.
  • Yes, I clearly changed into flip flops for part of this shoot.  I was wearing the Jeffrey Campbells for another outfit (coming soon on here, but some previews have been on my Instagram) and trotting all around Franklin Village in them, so eventually I decided to be smart and change.  Constantly performing and being on one's feet means you gotta be cautious!!
  • I added my puppet for some absurd photography.  But also I puppeteer constantly and it's good to have some quality pics of me and them for promotional purposes.
  • This puppet's name is Wren. She's my "bad" puppet, but really she's insecure and misunderstood. I adore her but seldom use her because her mouth is stiff and hard to control.  But I HAD to use her with one of my goth prints.  (She's wearing a Celine Dion shirt done in a heavy metal print, ha.) 
Thanks so much to all for your patience and bearing with me while I'm trying to figure out the next phases of my blog.  Again, while I have some outfit and misc posts cooking, I also may be still slow(ish) with posting.  For now I'm active on Instagram and Twitter and those are the best spots to catch visual antics and silly pieces of my mind.

  1. Welcome back, lovely! I've been in a similar boat this past year. It's been on thing after another that's effected my blogging schedule and overall consistency, but life happens! I think everyone in the blogosphere experiences or WILL experience a season like this at some point. It really is inevitable because you can only do so much preparation in advance, sometimes the events drag out longer than expected. I'm happy you're back, nonetheless, and how fun are those shoes!? Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week!


    XO,

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!

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 …
