Same thing, Different trick

You maayy notice, I’m using the same cardigan as from the post below this one (Fearless). I just love it that much. I mean, when you get such a versatile sweater for $9.99, you tend to overuse it. It was the greatest though, because today I realized, “What if I… UNBUTTONED THE BUTTONS AND OPENED THE CARDIGAN??”. Moment of [not really] brilliance. Made me so happy!

Rock climbing is so many things, and I can’t say many of them are bad. The pull and strain of the muscles working, the triumph from overcoming a difficult climb, the adrenaline rush from climbing the heights (or on the auto-belay, the decent back down). Sometimes it’s the leap of faith when you’re in a tight spot, and all there’s left to do is to reach. There’s the rewarding connection of hand to rock that provides confirmation of success. Gosh I love these days.

Maybe adding a little bit more fearless into the wardrobe?

Have at it savvy readers = ) Hope you’ve all been well!

Oh the Things You Find...

... In your basement/mother's closet!

My mom's been going through this cleaning phase (err cleaning spree, she does this a lot), but there are quite a few perks! Liike some great clothing finds =] (More to come! Soon! Hopefully!)

So these leggings were pretty much the center piece. They weren't exactly something my mom put up for grabs, but as soon as I saw it I fell in love! As for the leotard, my mom was going to give it away but I said, "no way!" Moral of the story, go raid your attics and basements, you'll find the coolest stuff, and that's a promise = )

Hey There Stranger, Welcome Back

It seems like I haven't posted in forever. Definitely in the blogger world, a week and three days is like 3 years, so I'm going to have to catch up quickly. What's the good word on the street?

~ These are mostly old images/outfits that I've already had hanging around, but you know how I am with photo montages. ~

~ Now there is one place I want to see more than anything, and that would be France. Maybe Paris for the retail and the high end couture. Maybe the countryside to see what France is like sans tourisme. Either way, I was absolutely jealous when fellow classmates came back from their French Exchange trip a while back. And just now I am showing you some of the great inspiring pics they brought back, enjoy! ~

~ As you can see, it's not exactly outfits but a lot of geometric shapes. I find it quite inspiring, although I'm not sure where I'm going to go with it yet. But, I will let! you! know! ~

~ And lastly, it just has to be said. What do you think about (as LEAH CHERNIKOFF from would say) meggings? ~

My take: I think men should wear what they feel comfortable wearing. If we women can wear cone bras, then why can't men have some fun? Of course, that is in moderation. For me, it's still a no-no to wear short-shorts and a tube top. So please, men. If you do decide upon going with the man jeggings, do like John Varvatos here and wear them with class (unless that's just the model that's doing all the work. I mean, heelloooo!)
