ain't it fun.....

I'm going to go airsofting (is that even correct(shit if I know)) for the first time on Saturday. I'm %100 positive that Daul has the right idea about how to dress for this event and what I need to bring to kick my guy friends' asses!


frock out

This Thursday, Nov 18, I went to the Denver Public Library to do my internship (I intern for Tricia Hoke) where 11 local designers showcased six different looks. This year the show's judging panel featured "Project Runway" finalist Mondo Guerra, "Shear Genius" contestant Charlie Price, and 5280's fashion editor Georgia Alexia Benjou. The show's theme was Slideshow, prmoting lots of theatrical and dynamically whimsical designs that ranged in season from summer to winter.

superhero day

For homecoming our high school has a theme for everyday of the week. Monday was 70's (I refused to dress up), Tuesday was Hip-hop, Wednesday was preppy, Thursday was superhero day, and Friday is blue and gold day (school colors). Since I don't have a magical cape in my closet I just colored my eyes with some intense eyeshadow. It made me feel like a character from Avatar or something.

Getting in a Jak & Jil phase of taking pictures of people that I think are unique

ground zero

I'm pretty sure that this is the best conversation tee shirt if your hanging out with your friends or if you go to a party. I have been looking everywhere for this tee shirt and if anyone knows where I can buy it, please send me an email.

Here is a picture my life falling apart

After school I felt like Woody Allen and his expressions is just like my mood today. Dazed and confused


On a carousel

Denver designer Melissa May has a following for her girly dresses, feminine fabrics and winsome designs. She'll show more than 20 new looks for spring 2011 at a benefit show Saturday at the Historic Elitch Carousel Pavilion, West 38th Avenue and Tennyson Street. She says the designs are circus-inspired and they'll be serving circus-themed treats to guests. Music will be by The Postman. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m and admission is free (Denver Post).


The ant is grey

Man invented currency/money for a reason....to spend it. I'm pretty sure my money wants to be spent so I can have these sunglasses

Fun bands

My new favorite obsession. Rubber bands shaped like animals. My new fun bands like crowding around my new DKNY watch.
You can pick up Fun bands at any supermarket or convenience store (King Soopers, Safeway, Walmart)

Bleu de Chanel

I never would have expected Martin Scorsese (Shutter Island) to direct this new commerical from Chanel starring Gaspard Ulliel


My friend Val invited me to be her model for her school's final project (Aveda Hair Salon). I was uber excited that she chose me and I really liked how this picture turned out. Val's idea for my hair was making it look like it was windswept. For the makeup she put on bright yellow taxi cab looking eyeshadow with a dark rose colored lip. For lunch it was really funny walking out on the 16th street mall with my hair like this. Everyone just stares at you like your from another planet and I'm not tall at all so it felt even more ackward.
Comments from people, "That is quite the bee-hive"-from a businesses man
" Is that really your real hair?" -some lady -no it wasn't my real hair, Val used a ton of fake hair
"I love your hair" - 5 year old
Thanks Val and the photographer of the Aveda Hair Salon for making this a wonderful experience


senior photo

As if I could take a picture like this. With my crap digital camera. Whatever. The INCREDIBLE genius behind this photo is Kimberly Anderson. Kimberly has a studio based in Evergreen, CO and is sought after for her unique ability to capture the personality of her subjects. Kimberly and I had a wonderful photoshoot together, shooting around Red Rocks and Morrison.

gunmetal and thunderstorms

I swear that the only reason my stomach is lighter than my legs is because there hasn't been any sun in Colorado for the past 2 weeks. It has been raining constantly and we've even gotten hail.

p.s. Congrats Mondo for being in the top 3 for Project Runway
Also I think I'm going to get my hair colored even lighter
