You like Strawberry? How about RAWBERRY?!?!

Yes, I do realize that this outfit is completely awful, however when it's cold out and you're scraping your ski's it's acceptable. I managed to pull my sweatpants under my aa dress, and pile two cardigans on top. Yet I was still a bit chilly.

All that aside, I'm having a really awesome trip. It snowed almost a foot the other day, and the mountain went from brown to white in a matter of probably 20 hours. I've been working on my Giant Slalom this week, and I'm pretty pumped because I'm actually improving quite a bit. Today we also got to take out our Super G skis for a bit, and it was so sweet. Okay, for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, I'll try to put it in perspective: GS aka Giant Slalom is medium turns around blue and red gates with flags in the middle, SG aka Super Giant Slalom is slightly bigger turns than GS around similar gates, SL aka Slalom is tight turns around one pole gates which you can hit with your shins and poles, and lastly DH aka Downhill are super big turns around red gates(in the world cup people get going to over 150 km/h in DH).

Alright, so I feel like I should introduce you to my second family, also known as my ski team.
Here goes:

So, that's the team. I'm probably going shopping on Saturday, so I'll try to post more then.
BTW, the title is from a video on youtube, it's pretty funny, you may want to check it out. It's called: Powerthirst.

Colorado and Such.

Alright, so we arrived in Colorado two days ago and so far it's been really sweet. It was shitting snow today while we were skiing, and hopefully there'll be powder tomorrow.
We're staying in Silverthorne which is about an hour away form Denver, and about twenty minutes from the ski hill Loveland. There's this really fabulous outlet mall in town and I can't wait to go shopping on the weekend. There's also this skateboard store where I'm thinking about buying a longboard.
The day before I left I was in desperate need of a Halloween costume, and I just really wanted to go thrifting, so my buddy Monica and I headed over to Value Village after school. I ended up finding a sweet Halloween costume(which was only 5.99, I was pretty pumped), as well as a few other things as.
Take a look:

So the two sweaters, the dress and the cowboy boots are what I got at Value Village. Monica got the Jazzersize sweater, the cowboys boots, and the dress there too. I freaking love that place :)

She Looked in the Mirror..

Alright, so I’m at school right now and I can’t really do anything. I leave to go to Colorado tomorrow for three weeks. I was planning on writing two tests today (btw, that’s how it works at my school, you do what you want, when you want), and I went to the testing center and they told me that I didn’t have enough time to write the second test, which was English, because we end at 2.15 on Fridays. So pretty much I’m not a happy camper right now.
I am really excited about Colorado though. We went last year for two weeks and it was super fun. There’s this really great outlet mall by where we’re staying, and last year I did some major damage there. This year however, I’m trying this new thing called “saving money”, crazy, I know. So I’m going to limit my spending this year by only bringing a certain amount of American cash, and leaving my debit card at home. I have a slight feeling that I’m going to blow all my money in the first few days, but I’ll try my best.
Last year we stayed in a town called Frisco, which was really cute, and I found this amazing second hand store where I got a Louis Vuitton purse for 80 dollars. Now I know that you’re all assuming that it was fake, but I swear to you that it is completely legit. I don’t mess around when it comes to Louis Vuitton.
So today I wore my sweater vest, with a pair of really wide leg jeans I got at the Oakley-Billabong sample sale a while back. I’ll try to post a picture later.

I'm thankful for my France pants.

My family had our thanksgiving dinner tonight, and here's what I wore:

Ya, my family's pretty laid back, I was probably the most dressed up person there. haha. These are one of my favorite pairs of pants. I love the high-waistedness of them, they're super comfy and I love how they look. I got the pants at a really sweet store in France. I'd tell you the name of it, but I don't really know what it is. I'm pretty sure it's japanese, because the symbol was really weird... ya, well. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

my new favorite article of clothing

A few weeks ago while shopping on seventeenth ave, I stopped into Divine. I love Divine because it has the best of both worlds: new and vintage. The front bit of the store has a bunch of cute dresses, coats, and really cute other stuff. In the center of the store is probably the most pairs of different Chucks I have ever seen. Then behind that is a bunch of racks of vintage clothing. Some of the clothes in the back are slightly ridiculous, but it's all still amazing. I managed to find the comfiest dark red sweater. It's a little baggy, but still flattering. I've pretty much been wearing it all the time now.

Here's a better view of it:

So I figured out how to get a little more use out of my summer dress this fall:wait for it...

and now, it's a skirt :)

I love that even though it's a pretty summery print on the dress, it still kinda works for fall.

T-Shirt Dress'

One thing that I really love are T-shirt dress' and Sweatshirt dress'. I think it's really cute when someone wears a extra long t-shirt with a belt, and tights, a cardigan, or something like that. Another way I've seen it done was to layer another shorter shirt over top. I did this today, and I really liked it. The thing I like about this look is that it can be worn in many different ways. You can make it super glam by wearing a pair of stilettos and a few gold chains, or make it more bohemian by wearing slouchy boots and a vest.

I apologize.

Okay, so I'm really sorry I haven't written in a while. I have a bunch photos to post, but I cannot find my camera cord. I did manage to get one picture off my phone. :)

So I've done a bit of shopping latley and I got a bunch of stuff and probably spent a bit too much money. This is what I got: about four necklaces from Aldo Accessories all of which are fairly large and chuncky, a blue american apparel dress, a red vintage sweater from Divine (on seventeenth ave, in Calgary) which I am absolutely in love with now, two grey t-shirts which I'll use for layering, two harajuku lovers shirts, two pairs of bright blue tights(two different shades of blue) and I'm pretty sure that's it.
In this picture I'm wearing the blue AA dress I mentioned above. The tights are the ones that I also recently bought, along with the two necklaces. One of them has a sparkly blue heart, and the other one has some big clear crystal type things on it. The sweater is one I bought at Zara in France.
PS-I promise I'll write more often from now on!
