The people all call her Alaska

Pictures from my first fashion show!

It was Alice in Wonderland- themed...guess whose hat this is....

Literally a leaning Tower of Pisa of satin and polyester.

White Rabbit sunglasses!

shot by the amazing Kristen...we are safe from evil

It was so much work, but it felt so amazing to see all of my pieces on the stage..definitely an incredible experience.

In honor of National Poetry Month, some friends from class and I decided to celebrate by leaving poems all over campus in the dead of night! Or early morning, really.
Frank Warren, the creator of Post Secret, visited our school to talk and share his awesome mail.
waiting in line, reading one of his books together

Attack poetry construction!!
random lonely balloon

flowers wilting in the heat of my shoe-box dorm...

I'm off to Colorado tomorrow, so this is just a quick post to show that I'm still alive... Hope all of your summers are sunny and fun! Or if you like rain, puddly and fun. That's cool too.

A child white as snow

red as blood
and black as the wood of the windowframe
(from the Brothers Grimm Snow White)

I don't think I'll ever lose inspiration in fairy tales and forest lore...

I took these of our Snow White

So Pocahontas is not denizen of fairy tale lore, per say....but Annie was determined to play her. And she makes a beautiful princess of the woods!

Grandmother Willow!

Me as Little Red Riding Hood. My ridiculously tall lace boots, thrifted (( bag, and a sarong my mom bought me as my red hood


look closer- we were literally 2 feet from a sleeping fawn before we saw him! Definitely the most magical part of the day was watching this little guy take a snooze in the grass

This is one of my favorite childhood friends! His name was Sunchaser, I do believe...he lives in lavender, apparently

Red Riding Hood would totally wear these...not sure how well they'd work out trekking through the woods with a rapacious wolf on the trail, but, you know....he may just take the shoes and leave her alone if she wore them. He's a classy wolf.
