hey now i'm movin'


For the past two years, I've fallen asleep to the quiet hum of the 24-hour bus that drives up and down the street outside my bedroom window and woken to Tender Green walls and spent afternoons with the warmest midday sun. These same Tender Green walls have come to hold my memories and helped me make memories and even held me when there were no memories I could even think of making. The walls in this room slope and make hanging photos and art hard. The ceiling is ugly popcorn and the floors may be hardwood but they are creaking and breaking, slowly but surely. There are dead bugs trapped in the light fixture and I'm partly too lazy but mostly too scared to clean them away. I've spent night after night sitting on that broken floor, staring into a mirror, wondering if it was a red lips sort of night, wondering who I'd meet, or if I already knew the answers to all these questions, wondering if he'd call or I'd text and wondering if I'd regret it all in the morning. This room is on the third floor of a house built at the turn of the century, and so the winters are always too cold and the summer's much too warm. But this room held my hand tight through a degree I never thought I'd finish and it held my hand even tighter when old hopes slipped away and new ones formed in their place and this room may not be perfect and even though it is time to leave it behind, I know I will forever search for the way this room erupting in late afternoon sunshine made me feel when this city was still new and everything still waited ahead.

as our Associate Stylist, this week’s Style File, Abercrombie Fitch Outletis perhaps one of the most knowledgable when it comes to styling FP merchandise. She gets the Vibram Fivefingers Sale and its multi facets – always pairing it with fun new looks in exciting ways. It’s rare that you find her without at least one piece of Free People worked into a look. Louis Vuitton OutletFree People apparel encourages a showcasing of personality; though, and her personal touch definitely shines through. The overall look has all the pixie and retro of FP girl, Molly, mixed in with fashion-cool neons and leather. true religion jeansThere is much inspiration to be taken from how this lady puts things together.
