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.
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.

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 :)

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.

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!

Here's a better view of 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.

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.
