“Am I Pretty Now?!” He Asked Vehemently.

So I recently purchased some red ankle jeans. I was mostly excited because they’re red. Oh, so colourful, so perfect for fall. Little did I know, ankle jeans are a new style, actually they’ve been around for a while. Took off in spring, from what I know. But that just goes to show how on top of things I am.

Anyways, ankle jeans are like skinny jeans, but categorized by their short inseam. Which, if you have been following fashion rules for all your life, you know is a BIG FAUX PAS. Always find clothes that fit, pants shouldn’t show your socks when you sit, and so on.

Not the case with these; now I don’t mind a shorter inseam once in a while, and on my legs that’s 31” at the most. At least I’m learning this now, right? Well the pants I ordered are 29 inches long. I didn’t seem to think 2 inches would make a lot of difference when I found them. I mean, I could have chose the 28” inseam, right?

But they finally arrive and I try them on; I feel a bit too tall, and not in a good way. I’m only 5’8”, and for women, they are categorized tall after 5’7”. So I’m not a total freak, just on the borders of it. Maybe kind of falling off the edge of it. Okay yes I’m a freak and I go to lengths to stay that way.

Here are some self shots; I tried to pull off the trend with the ankle boots and wearing a black/white top. I think it worked a little, but I’m still not fond of how short me pants be.

I apologize for the lighting and not using flash. So what do you guys think? Should people be able to see your ankles if you’re wearing pants? I want to know other peoples opinion on this trend, or just coloured jeans in general. Here are some of my favourite colour jeans I own:

Looking For A Removable Cookie?

West Coast Amusements, The Zipper, Williams Lake, BC, carnie

Hey all out there! Here’s a little treat for you all, a video I made, of myself. Yes that is me. One of the first videos of this kind I have made and posted on the interwebs for whoever would care to view. It’s a video entry for Warehouse One’s Show Us Your Haul Contest. I created it with a style/how-to-wear type of vlog in mind. So here you go! Enjoy.

Video with the most views wins! Contest ends September 16th, thanks for watching!

Here’s a bonus cookie; my boyfriend’s contest entry that I helped him make. (Haha, gotta get the credit in there.) Or maybe it was more like forced to make?

Shitty sound quality brought to you by my beat up Nikon Cool Pix. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Gentle Cultivation Of How To Culture The Cultured.

So it’s almost been two years since I remembered about this blog. I’ve decided I will dedicate it to the things I love in art and culture. No more personal rants, those belong on Facebook, or the mini-blogs of Twitter. Which you can follow me at of course, I don’t mind. As long as your profile checks out. Hah.

Haven’t done too much in those past two years, culture-wise. Recently bought a cheap dime-store sketchbook, just for the sake of having something to draw in. All my nice sketchbooks are in storage, and it was only a dollar; but the binding sucks. That would definitely be something to look for when purchasing a drawing pad.

Let’s see, I’ll throw some top 5 lists at you, High Fidelity style.
What’s New & Current:

Top 5 CD’s Playing In My Car:
5. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californiacation
4. Foster The People – Torches

Well I hope that helps you get a look into my mind’s eye. I was able to get out last winter for the 2011-2012 season a few times and experience the quant ski-hill life at Mt. Timothy and Sun Peaks, here in BC. Hope to do the same this year, with maybe a few equipment upgrades and new hills to shred. New boots and bindings, and a Ruroc helmet would be luxurious.

snowboarding, volcom, K2 siren,

I’ll try to get more pictures in with my posts in the near future. Looking at a blog with all words is never any fun. Besides, we want colour and life and vibrancy!

Best thing about this post so far; having to add so many names to the spell-check’s dictionary. I am culturing my software! Thanks for tuning in, cheers!
