I've been shredding old shirts while watching reruns of Angel and last night was my first time actually wearing one out...its a little cold for sheer tanks but I guess beauty is pain?

I'm looking for the unexpected. I'm looking for things I've never seen before. - Robert Mapplethorpe

Today I finally revealed my wonderfully fluffy, furry vest to my small liberal arts campus and.....all was good :) I guess that is one of the positives of attending such a accepting and creative school; my fashion choices never get ridiculed. Another positive is that we get to take 4 hour long classes on the subject of landscape photography.

My first class today was definitely a test of my ability to stay in one seat for 4 hours straight and I have to say that by the end of class I was ready to run out of there. Not that the class wasn't enjoyable, but that is just too long. On the plus side I saw 2 movies; one on Ansel Adams, the premiere landscape photographer in America, and the second on Edward Burtynsky. Both were fascinating, and strangely funny, but the Edward Burtynsky video, Manufactured Landscapes, was especially intriguing. He approached the idea of landscape photography from an industrial angle; he showcases the many ways human life has affected the natural landscape of the world. Very interesting.

Your friends hold the lullabies

Finally got around to bleaching these old jeans the other day. I really like how they turned out, but I think they may need another wash to get rid of the pungent odor of bleach.

Next up I want to create an inexpensive replica of this bleached denim Karen Walker dress. I am absolutely in love with every aspect of this dress... except the insane pricetag!

[She's the glowing sun so come out]

I guess you could say I was inspired today to finally take some photographs. I spent the better half of the afternoon snapping shots of some of my favorite things around my house. I thought it would be a nice memorial of my time spent growing up here; the things I collected, loved, held onto, my favorite spaces, cracks in the wall, and the random things I hardly noticed until now after nearly 10 years in this house.

I feel like this song/video fits the mood of my afternoon. The music is just irresistibly beautiful and ethereal, and so is the video. Its a mix of Peter Pan and the Pied Piper and right now I'm feeling the urge to fly away to Neverland and never grow up. Enjoy :)
