TODAY'S LOOK - 3.28.12

I'm back on lookbook! I decided that after not using the sight for a few years, that's it time for me to start being active on it. I like being able to document my outfits and seeing how my style evolves over time. Also, I feel that these photos will be evidence for the changes in my body. I've lost thirty pounds since I was at my highest weight about three years ago. Now I'm sort of a fitness freak, so I want proof for all my hard work.

Anyway, about my outfit. I woke up an hour later than I should have for class today so I just threw some stuff on. This Nirvana sweatshirt is great for just that! It's a mens shirt so it's a bit baggy, but so comfortable. The shorts are Levi's that I found at a thrift store for something like eleven dollars. I love being able to find great pieces at thrift stores - it can be hard work to find something that I really like and that fits me. Boots are by Wanted that I bought at Shoe Carnival. The sunglasses, as well as the sweatshirt, were from Urban Outfitters.

This is photographer Julia Kozerski and the photos above are from her Changing Room series. Since the first photo on the left, she's lost a whopping 160 pounds. All I can say is wow. She deserves a huge pat on the back. I feel so proud for her, because I know weight loss doesn't come easily. If she can lose that much weight, then there's no reason I can't keep working towards my goal of losing twenty pounds.

Julia's commentary:
Since December of 2009, I have lost over 160 pounds. Changing Room is a selection of images chronicling my physical transformation. The self-portraits, captured with my iPhone, were taken in various locations such as store dressing rooms and within my home. They serve as a form of voyeurism, bridging the gap between public and private spaces. They also serve as personal reflections of my struggle to recognize and understand my individual identity and sense of self throughout my experience. From celebratory and hopeful, to painful sadness and confusion, the images in Changing Room give the viewer a rare look at the range of emotions I privately endured while undergoing my massive weight loss. (This work is currently in progress.)

How neat is this video?! I love that this video takes the viewer into some sort of different universe, which is how I feel when I listen to the Horrors. A very fun and lighthearted video. check it out!

Not only are girls awesome, but we can also crank out some pretty rad tunes! Here's a playlist that I made showcasing some of the music that females have blessed us with. Enjoy!

This roll turned out a WHOLE lot better than the last one. I'm so pleased with the results that I now want to take my fisheye camera everywhere with me! The weather here is getting a lot nicer so I'm excited to be able to start shooting outside. Being trapped indoors with a camera isn't nearly as fun.
Also, this roll and the previous were shot with Kodak film and I've replaced that with Fujifilm. Rumor has it that Fujifilm yields better results as far as color quality and vibrancy go, so we'll see how the next set turns out!

I just love all the beading of the garments, and the shoes in the last photo are a must have.
