Chop! Chop!: A Story In Photos

The first time I had a bowl cut, with John Taylor of Duran Duran, circa 1993 I’ve been thinking about chopping off my hair for a few months. The motivations were many: I’m craving change and new adventures. When I was in my twenties and thirties, I had short hair, so I associate cropped cuts with being youthful and daring. There was this photo of Madonna and the way I’ve been listening to... read more

Do I Need A New ‘Do?!

I know Madonna is wearing a wig in this photo from the Met Gala, and I also know that my all-too-real hair won’t look this perfect, but I am ridiculously tempted to get my hair chopped like this. Maybe even while I’m on vacation! Truth be told, I wouldn’t mind owning that jacket either — but maybe with skirt for me,... read more

Happy Halloween: A Story In Photos

As I confessed last week, Dave and I flew our geek flags high and attended the Wizard World Austin Comic Con. I didn’t partake in costuming, but I la-la-loved the people who did. Here are some of Dave’s snaps from our trek into Nerd-dom. When we walked into the convention center, we were greeted by empty halls. “Where are all the nerds?!” I demanded. Then we turned a corner and... read more

Strength Monday 05/21/12 (w/ Bonus Bathing Suits)

In my quest for lean superhero-ness, I’m following the Wendler 5/3/1 strength training program. Twice a week, Dave and I are hitting the craptastic gym in our Converse to lift heavy and crank through a mini-metcon. Hello, summer. Dave and I are going on a yoga retreat next week in Tulum, Mexico… seven days of sand, surf, sun, and Satnam. (More on that later this week.) When we went to Costa... read more

Strength Monday – 05/07/12 (w/ Bonus Cute Shorts)

In my quest for lean superhero-ness, I’m following the Wendler 5/3/1 strength training program. Twice a week, Dave and I are hitting the craptastic gym in our Converse to lift heavy and crank through a mini-metcon. I like these shorts. The craptastic gym invites me to be lazy about my appearance. Usually, no on is there, and if there are a few other souls in that sweaty, stinky box, they’re... read more

Nice Lid

This post from Tom & Lorenzo makes me weep with joy – it’s a collection of some of the hats worn at Royal Ascot last week. They are heavenly… see? See all the stunning and delightful photos here. And let’s all start mentally planning the topper I’ll wear when I eventually make my way to Royal Ascot. Some... read more

Tall Socks – Free Shirt

Until I became a Rollergirl, I didn’t understand the true value of knee socks. Worn over fishnets and under knee pads, the tall socks not only looked Sassy McSasserson, they also protected our bony shins when we smashed into the skating rink floor. Imagine my fashion excitement when I realized that my second-favorite bad girl accessory (Oh, fishnets! You will always be #1 in my heart.) are also super... read more

Play Hard, Look Good

Confession time: One of the things that first attracted me to Roller Derby was the cute outfits. I know I should say it was the athleticism, the opportunity to be part of a team, the chance to recreate a sport for the new millennium. But no, it was the outfits. Prior to my Derby days, I’d slogged my way through long-distance bike rides and several triathlons, all of which warranted wearing terribly... read more

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: Crazy International Costumes

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: Prada Chandelier Shoes

I’m fairly certain my life would be complete if I owned a pair of these: They’re only $1800. Surely I’m worth it, right?! (And for the record, I’m still lusting after these. I wonder if Madonna has cast hers off to a thrift store... read more
