Moments of Win

impromptu photoshoot when i came upon a collection of props from the set of Jurassic Park.

Banff National Park, Canada
I heard about Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies when I was in college. I dreamed of going there for 12 years; when the opportunity presented itself in April 2009, I bought my ticket and hopped on the plane! We had a wonderful time exploring the mountains, going on ice hikes, trekking across Lake Louise, and visiting glaciers. One afternoon, I even saw a bald eagle gliding right above my car!

jammers are winners
Me (in the pink jersey) jamming (ie, scoring points and getting beaten up) for the first time ever!

The Moment when everything changed...

No lyrics this time. Just... awkward.

April 27, 2011
Tunic/top/thing: Forever 21 Plus
Pants: Target
Shoes: Keds
Necklace: Forever 21
Belt: Coldwater Creek (Outlet)
Bracelet: World Market

Sorry I haven't been around in a while, but thank you so much for sticking around! I've been really busy with both of my jobs and roller derby, taxes, job hunting. This weekend I also got into a car accident- I didn't get hurt, but there's all kinds of running back and forth and playing phone tag with trying to get the damage assessed and repairs done, if any.

So this is a shirt I like a lot because it is soft and comfortable, but I don't really know how to wear it. It actually has elastic around the waist but I added the belt to create a little extra detail. But I've worn this shirt several times and I end up fiddling with it constantly throughout the day.

I love these Keds, they are covered in silver glitter, but even after I've worn them and worn them they still tend to chew up my feet.

Didn't you see my heart leap, like a pup in the constant barley?

April 06, 2011
Cardigan: Alloy
Tank and jeans: Just My Size
Flats: American Eagle via Ross
Necklace: Old Navy
Silver cuff bracelet: Gift from Mom

I'm not afraid of the scary sweater anymore! You can still get your own scary sweater, they're on clearance for $19.99.

I remember way back when I was in high school and Alloy carried mostly skater clothes for men. My first purchase from the catalog was a pair of wide legged Kikwear jeans that my mother hated to death.

Hmm... do you think I could still get away with that style? I don't think kids nowadays could wear something like that to school, but I wore them all the time, with my "Smashing Pumpkins" and "Garbage" t-shirts. Aaah, nostalgia!

Oh, the hand over the face is to protect you from the monster zit I've been cultivating. I also have nail polish on for once, but you can't really see it so it doesn't matter.

So what if the necklace is an owl and not a kingfisher! I just love this song.

It was so easy, and the words so sweet

April 04, 2011
Sweater: Not sure, probably Ross - old
Sleeveless shell: Target
Skirt: Lane Bryant
Tights: Walmart
Shoes: American Eagle via Ross
Necklace: Gift

You might have noticed that, aside from black and grey, I have a lot of blue. Blue is my safety color. I fall back on navy especially, when I'm not feeling so great.

Sorry I haven't been posting a lot of outfits. I don't know if I mentioned it before but I've gained a lot of weight recently and so now a lot of my clothes don't fit.
