Is It Summer Yet?

From Pull & Bear's S/S 2011 Campaign.

I'm tired of homework and projects and school. The weather has been insanely gorgeous the past few days in Austin, and I haven't even so much as have gone swimming. I need to get out of my apartment and go to the Greenbelt or to Barton Springs and dip my feet in the water. This video makes me wish for wasting away a summer's day with swimming and friends. Pull & Bear is one of my favorite international brands. This video only reignites that love.

So, hopefully this weekend, I will take a few stunning photos at the lake. Or something. I'm going to Spider House for breakfast on Sunday, so I'll at least get one good style photo in. Hope everyone has a grand weekend!
Flower Child: easily my favorite look from the vid.

Texas Rollergirls are Badass.

I was recently invited to help Blackbird Clothes & Curios at a recent Texas Rollergirls bout. Held downtown at the Convention Center, I've only been to the roller derby once, and had no idea of what to expect.

This is what I learned: man, do those girls work hard! Their athleticism is awe-inspiring. I wanted to buy a pair of skates as soon as the evening was over.

If I could do half of what they do on skates, I'd be happy.

Blackbird had a great view of the track, and I met a lot of the rollergirls, as we were next to their merchandise booth.

Also, I was surprised to see the band Agent Ribbons there. Apparently, they've moved from California to Austin. They sounded great and even played my favorite song ("Chelsea, Let's Go Join the Circus").

In all, I had a rock 'n rollin' good time.

Hope you enjoy the photos and have a fab Monday!

Ready for some roller derby!Juliana Azar, co-owner of Blackbird.

Look at all the stunning merchandise!Look at them go!Ready to start.Agent Ribbons: "Chelsea, let's go join the circus.
I will take the trapeze, you can tame the lions." The entire bout was very close!
Instead of joining the circus, I would like to join the roller derby, thanks.
