This is what I wore on Saturday and if we're friends on Facebook or you follow me on Instagram (@room334), then you know that it was kind of a big deal for me. Bo Burnham performed at my school that night and, as I found out an hour before the show, he agreed to interview with me for my campus' paper. For those unfamiliar with Bo Burnham, he's a comedian who's famous for his songs and is the youngest person to have a Comedy Central Special. I hadn't listened to his stuff in years, but in high school, my friends and I were REALLY into him. Most of my friends from home are big comedy nerds, so getting to meet a famous stand-up is a really big deal. And let me tell you, it was awesome.
His show was unlike anything I could have imagined. I was expecting mostly songs, but it was the most high-energy mix of vulgar music, stand-up, poetry, and more. Basically, it was better than I could have ever imagined. Immediately after the show, I was pulled upstairs to a hotel room where I was basically left alone with Burnham and his opening comedian. I was expecting to only get a couple of minutes with him to ask one or two questions, but he was extremely nice and answered every question I had. Not only do I have 12 minutes of the two of us talking recording, I got to hear him talk about his process writing jokes and have tell me how much he loves Louis CK, Reggie Watts, and Anthony Jeselnik, which was really exciting. I've never gotten to interview anyone even remotely close to a celebrity so I was pretty much on cloud 9 by the time it was over.
As for this outfit, the photos came out pretty blurry, but it's one of my favorites. I got this top in Modcloth's Cabin Fever sale and it's pretty much perfect. Katherine was sweet enough to send me this skirt along with some things she had borrowed through Flock Together and it couldn't have come at a better time. I was pretty convinced that no skirt I owned looked right with the top until I remembered that I had just gotten this one in the mail earlier that week. Could the key print be any more adorable? Seriously, Katherine's the best.
By the way, we did a stripe challenge on Flock Together yesterday! It's the first post of a new series we're doing, check it out!
