And so it starts again..

Bonjour Mon Cheries..

And so it begins again. Soccer season. I would be playng, but I'm not...not this year...I'm taking tennis. Whole nother story..anyway, as y'all know, because you are international types, the FIFA Womens World Cup was this summer, in Germany (because we are awesome like that) Throughout the compitition, i became fascinated with soccer players..I mean, I already was, because I play soccer, and these are my role models, but watching this was...different. like watching Heidi Klum in an interview, and seeing her walk down the runway, in the Victoria's Secret Fashion show. They were just so strong, and moved with such controlled grace..I know this is a bit strange, but it's late, and I will get around to the point, so bear with me...These girls have confidence. They walk on to that field, and they are like supermodels. They know their job, and they look fabulous doing it..ok, I'm going to stop now. Picture time :)

           You get the idea..These women are amazing. And it's not just soccer players. Female athletes are drawing a LAWT of attention..Nike tapped into this mostly unused market earlier this year with their "Make Yourself" campaign..It was shot by the fabulous Annie Leibowitz, and featured 7 women athletes..This is one of my favorite campaigns EVER. Actually, it IS my favorite. Period.I cut out a ton of them and they are proudly in my look book..Let me share:

Current French Open chapion, China's Li Na. Another tennis player :)


Algerian-French dancer Sofia Boutella..Nice face, yes? :) I make that one for the camera all the time.

Allyson Felix again :) This is one of my favorites of the whole set, along with the one of Maria.


Hope Solo, American Women's Team, Goalie.
Perri Shakes Drayton, British hurdler. I'm pretty sure I didn't spell that right. Look at the expression in her eyes...

 Australian Surfer Laura Enever..She looks like she's flying :)

This is the genius of Annie. If you look closely at their faces, you can see the fierce determination these women have. It's beautiful..ok, I think I'm starting to gush, so I'm gonna go to bed :P

Until Whenever,

Tell me what I want to hear. Or what you want to say.

Just remember:

If you're mean, I'll track you down and replace all your shoes with those hideous white tennis things that are so popular among the very sad.
