Mint Designs, Fall 2011

She stopped mid step because she thought she felt something, but this had happened before.  She once called it her intuition and always listened to it, but then she noticed that her mid step never moved to a new step.  She decided that today instead of standing still she would let it go.

Lanvin, Fall 2011

She was on a right of passage that seemed to never end. She was out there so long she was sure this was it, that her struggles were reality.  She fought against the weather, and naively thought she could control things if she just kept thinking about them intensely.  This of course was a foolish thought and one day she was relieved to realize that no matter how hard she stared at the clouds they would not move any faster.

Valentino, Fall 2011

While standing at the cliff's edge she noticed she could no longer hear her worries, that they were drowned out by her senses.  The sea air filled her lungs, while the air blew across protectively hugging her.  Her eyes concentrated on the endless movement of blue and while her senses worked in over drive she noticed her mind became still.  It was a noticeable change in consciousness and she wondered if she was having a moment of peace, if she was allowing herself to finally feel peace.  She thought "If this was it then I better not move", she did not yet realize that she could take this sense of awareness with her.

Tsumori Chisato, Fall 2011

While on the beach wearing this stripe number Character was thinking of her success with making two friends the other day and wondered if she would get lucky again today.  She peered through her oversized sunglasses and saw a girl, Character noted her stripe suit and thought "Hey I'm wearing stripes too". She then noticed the girl was dragging a boogie board and thought "Theres another thing we have in common".  As Character got up to approach the girl she hesitated and her nerves got the best of her, apparently stripes and a boogie board are not enough to break the ice.

I recommend looking at Tsumori Chisato's work if you are wondering how to take an obsession with stripes to a whole new level.  

On another note my little character needs a name.  It is taking on a life of it's own and no longer seems to completely represent me.  I guess I could just keep calling her Character, until I figure it out.  Feel free to leave a comment with any suggestions.

Jenny Fax, Fall 2011

We had just gotten to the beach and staked out our plot and I looked over and saw these two girls perfectly posed.  I quickly got my camera out, ignoring Peter's concern that I was going to get sand on it and snapped the picture before they moved.  score!

Here is the conversation between my character and the two girls:

Character just gets to the beach and her mom encourages her to play with other little girls.  Character is mortified at the thought but with her head down approaches the girls.  The girls look up and Character says "Hi want to play?" Little girls look at each other, which Character takes as rejection.  One pipes up and says "what are you wearing, you look like the sun rise". Character smiles and says its Jenny Fax.  The other girl pats the sand next to her inviting Character to join in the fun.  Character has a great day at the beach and covers her Jenny Fax look in sand, just as Ms Fax would like to see, someone living in the moment and making friends in her clothes.
