.........january 26 at the belly up in aspen.................hysterical!

i had the best time last night in aspen. after dinner at pacifica (venison, beet salad, clam chowder...yum) we headed over to the belly up to see deadmau5 (deadmouse) who started at 11:30. so much fun! the music was pounding, the lights going crazy, the 'kids' in their tutus and glow sticks and us....drinking from our magnum (sometimes getting old is not a drag!)

thank you to luke, chris, molly, scott & dayna for making it a blast.

tutu's, lots of head bands, lycra, feathers & slouchy boots

chris: genetic, enza costa, souchi sophia cardi & super cute triian earrings
me: herve leger leggings (yep, i was the female david lee roth), enza costa tee, la perla, rag and bone hat & souchi bottega wrap & shearling.

afternoon drawing at pretty.................

it was a beautiful wednesday and i decided i needed to sketch. it had been a while since i had and so i headed up the frying pan road and up to the reudi reservoir. i love the view, water and horizon. so, with snow around, music playing in the car i decided to sketch....... a pretty, calming day and a not so great sketch :)

long walk on the rio grande............compressed nerve.........huh?

ok, so, i love to hike, walk & now run. since living here i've managed to pick up the tools of the trade so i'm dressed appropriately and that i've got proper gear to eliminate accidents. SO, i indulge in some hiking boots (who knew ugly shoes were expensive....this breaks my heart) from italy (well some things can't be changed) and head out the next day.

chris has been in town for a month helping me with the stores and, well, generally just getting ourselves in trouble. she is the queen of research so decides we must walk on the rio grande. it's beautiful. the skies are blue, snow all around, colors of nature surround you.

i'm feeling good, my feet are warm and ankles supported. however, after about 5 miles, we're almost back to the car and i notice the top of my right foot hurts. hmmmm, i say aloud, 'maybe i tied my shoes too tight'.
yes, in fact i did & that, my friends, can give you a compressed nerves which is quite painful.

are you done laughing? yes, i, a former (and not so former) tomboy, grew up playing sports and have had my share of broken bones, crazy accidents (read the post about my eye being knocked out of my socket), broken noses (refer to eye socket), deviated septum (softball, basketball & a chick fight at an x concert that i happened to walk through). i am not afraid of a lil spill, but people how can it be that my first injury in aspen is because i tied my shoes too tight??????? this is unforgivable!

meanwhile, 3 days later all was well and i'm no longer hating my ugly boots. so here are some beautiful pictures of that fateful ridiculous day.

i WISH so badly i had my camera out when lil jack got about 6" from a cow trying to figure out what it was. but, when the cow moved....OMG i haven't laughed that hard in a long time.


winter school in aspen.............mid january

i am so excited to  be living in this winter wonderland! it's absolutely fact, magical. blankets of white, sparkling in the sun, blue skies, fresh air & an overwhelming designer to be outside. i am happy here.

winter school happens once a year in downtown aspen. i loved these snow sculptures and had to take blurry pics from my blackberry on my way home while fireworks were going out. love it.

......jane's addiction.......december 30 in aspen, co.....................

holy smokes! i got to see one of my all time favorite bands at the belly up in aspen last week with one of my fave friends, chris. she's in town for a month to help me out at the store and have a blast. 

here are some images of the band that has been a huge part of my life. also, when i graduated from the academy of art in san francisco i used their song 'ocean size' from the nothing shocking album as the music for my fashion show.

love perry!! love perry!! love love love perry!

the only bummer.........tix said show starts at 10 and so i, stupidly, thought there would be an opening band (duh???) AND there wasn't! so we missed the first 30 min. i literally screamed 'NO' when i saw them on stage. i missed (or i'm hoping i didn't) my 2 fave songs but still, amazing amazing amazing!

and people, i hope my abs look that good at 53!!



yep, it's 1988 all over again!!

what i loved is how much fun he was having.

dave navarro i will say, seemed a bit bored and fyi, that is not a good look on stage!

however, he did 'light up' when the double mint twins (not really, but could've been) showed up flirting and dancing provocatively.....hmmmm, yes it is 1988

perry's hot wife with a bit of s&m outfit

yep, the hottie is the one on the left with the smile!
again, happiness always trumps boredom!

go chris on the shoulders of a stranger to get the shot!
*fyi, she's wearing triian earrings & fyi, brian, one of the designers of triian just won project accessory!

flat abs are sooooooooooo yummy!

.........ARGH, I HAVE VIDEOS!! but blogger is not letting me post them :(
