Ashley: oh thanks, it's actually more 40's inspired but thank you!
M: where did you find the idea to dress like that?
A: oh, I've always loved fashion, and especially vintage fashion, and I've always dressed a little bit vintage, but in the last year or so I realized it was more "me" so I say what they hey! I have a vintage fashion-y blog and follow alot of other ones, so I get most my ideas there.
M: what exactly do you do with a "vintage fashion blog." (air-quotes were present)
A: Oh we take pictures of ourselves in our outfits and post them online.... (cricket, cricket) it's alot less narssisitic than it sounds. People are very supportive and friendly.
M: uh-hun? Wow. that's really weird. Y'know that right?
A: No it's really not! I promise, we're all very normal, nice, not full of ourselves people! We just like clothes! And we like seeing what other people wear. Like I said, I get alot of inspiration from looking at other people's outfits.
M: from looking at the clothes on people you don't know?
A: It's not weird, okay.
See? I'm trying to keep a low profile. At least until my bio is printed (don't worry I didn't whore out my link, but I mentioned blogging (this is sad right?)(oh man I'm talking way too much! I should never not blog for a whole week again!)).
But in news that you might actually care about news, the past week has been quite a good one (aside from two collasally terrible rehearsals... don't get me started)! First off I have discovered a new band Hjaltalin. From Iceland. And if that didn't make them cool enough, the lead femal singer is totally my doppleganger. No joke look:
Basically they are everything I love. Also I totally want that thing around her neck. And to move to Iceland. Are anywhere that it's not 110 degrees. We've had the weirdest weather this last week too! We had virtually no June Gloom, and then the first two weeks of July it was 80 at most. Then This week happened. I've re-enacted the scene where the Wicked Witch of the West melts several times. It's bad. Real bad. But last Wednesday was really wonderful! Bri, Jess, Charissa, Sarah, and I all took a jaunt to Corona Del Mar, (where Arrested Development is set)which is probably my favourite non-surfing beach. It's small, but really lovely. There's a really amazingly tide pool section of the beach with rocks and caves and everything a little girl who wants to be an Irish Mermaid could ask for (not that I know any of those....). We didn't make it over to the tide pools on this trip, but we're definatley going to go back soon for another little trip. It was so lovely, and the perfect vacation from work/rehearsals. I was the only one who braved the "cold" water (it was 64!), and let me tell you, it was so refreshing! Even if I did get a rock in my eye which temporarily blinded my left eye as I drove home. Here's some of the best pictures from our little day trip.
Bad photo, but see I went swimming!
