It's my youngest brother's 21st Birthday today!  We got him a keg and we're having a huge BBQ, we've been so lucky with the weather staying warm that everyone's trying to take advantage of it.  It should be pretty fun, I can't believe he's so old already.  Ev's birthday is coming up in a few days as well and it's a pretty big one for him, he's officially going to be an old man!  30 - whoa.  I think I'm going to get him a cane or something. :)

Last weekend Fairbanks had a record heat wave, 76 degrees!  That's like, hotter than it's been all summer and it happened in the middle of September.  Last year at this time we had snow.  Poor Tok got almost a foot of snow two weeks ago when we ad the huge rainstorm.  But it's okay because global warming/climate change is OBVIOUSLY a hoax.

Seasons Come And Seasons Go







Urban Outfitters Hat
Valentina Leather Bag (thrifted)
Leather Jacket (thrifted)
Blouse c/o H&M (last year)
JBrand Maria Pants (ebay)
Carlos Heels

I mentioned wanting to trade up on my AE high waisted black pants and it seemed like JBrand Maria's were kind of everyone's "go to" for that.  I found a really cheap pair on ebay that just needed a tiny repair and after fixing them, I do think they're better than the AE pair.  They are not a denim however but more like an actual pair of pants, this is a little disappointing because I wanted a thicker material to kinda hold everything in.  These pants wrinkle a lot through the stomach area, causing it to look like there's a serious fupa situation going on!  They are soft and comfy though, I suppose that might make up for it.   I think I'm going to keep searching for a really good pair of high waisted jeans but right  now I think I'll be okay with these and my Sevens, my AE jeans will be swapped out for a pair of work pants that just bit the dust.

Oh, and I'm sorry guys.  You all were so sweet and told me not to touch the scissors and I didn't listen.  I didn't do a great job on the bangs but they make me feel a little better for the grow out right now.

Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf?




Free People Hat
Lace dress c/o H&M (last year)
American Eagle Outfitters Bag
Steve Madden Leather Wedges

I really love this dress aside from one thing, the neckline just wasn't doing it for me.  I lazily altered it into a V-neck and now it feels a little more wearable.  I'm trying to get better about doing my own alterations, my little sister has been showing me a lot of thing so hopefully I'll start hemming my own jeans or something.   I know, I'm so exciting. (But at least I managed to smile this time!  Progress!)

THE HAIR.  I am so close to just chopping it all back off again, it's at another "stage of awful" and when I went to get it trimmed, I ended up with the soccer mom bob.   (I even had pictures of what I wanted!  SOB.)  I tried to trim it up a little and fix it but....it's bad.   Oh well, I've been pretty lucky that I've never really gotten a bad hair cut before this so I was probably due.   It's a good thing I like hats because now I have a really good excuse for wearing them.

On The Fence

American Eagle Outfitters Jaccket

Hah, the only thing I'm on the fence about is wether it's worth wearing tights.  I'm warm if I'm in the sun but as soon as the wind picks up, I'm freezing.  I know I'll be hating the tights by oh, December so I hate to break them out already but....I also really hate being cold.  I'll just pretend I'm cool and dressing all weather appropriate.

Can't Beat A Pony

....because Ford is best.  I say this because they have the easiest wheel hub assemblies to put in.  This is a round about way of saying I broke the car again, I was getting ready to head out to work and thunk!  I got out and realized the front tire was wobbling all over the place.  We called a few shops to get an estimate and everyone said it's be between $500-$600 to fix it and four hours of labor.  We called my dad and asked if it was something we could maybe fix and yup, the part was $80 and we swapped it out in thirty minutes.   It was actually easier than brakes because there was no way possible I could put it on backwards. 
Also, I saw a truck with painting on it saying Fords suck and Dodges rule and I felt like yelling that Fords don't randomly drop their trannies like Dodges.  But I'm not clever and couldn't make it into a joke so yeah, that didn't happen.  Master of witty remarks, that's me!  (More like master of breaking the car.)
