Sisterly Love

My sister and I are seven years apart.  23 and 16.  Second-year law student and high school sophomore.  Living on my own and living in my old bedroom.  Logical thinker and creative soul.  Single and young "love."

My sister and I are complete, well, almost complete opposites.  Independent and stubborn.  Dreamers.  Witty and sarcastic.  Out going and personable.  Fashionable.

To say that my sister and I fought growing up would be a gross understatement.  We fought worse than most brothers fight, and still do at times, though it has gotten A LOT better.  The age difference probably had something to do with it.  I moved out of the house and went to college when my sister was starting the fifth grade!  What in the world would we had in common?

As she is in high school, now, we have found common ground in many things. Fashion. Music. Movies. Goals. Life Outlook.  I find myself going to her for all the "hip" trends and the random songs I hear on the radio that I have no clue who sings them.  We both have an on going love affair with J.Crew.  I have introduced to her classics like Blue Brothers and Casablanca.  Her ipod has songs by Van Morrison and OAR (she wasn't, even,  in elementary school when they first came out).

She is destined to be an artist in Greenwich Village.  Her artistic ability is unreal.  My drawings are limited to anorexic stick figures.  Whatever she decides to do it will be her own, because she doesn't follow the crowd.  She walks to her own beat.

Over Christmas, she introduced me to the wonders of Arie.  It is the sister store to American Eagle.  I have not shopped in American Eagle since I was in high school.  I thought Arie was just the intimate apparel of American Eagle. But, I was wrong.  They carry their own clothes and makeup.  They were running a deal on their eye shadows (3 for $15 and they were regularly $7.50 a piece).  I got two and Ains got one.  They are great for everyday or an night out.

Secondly, I got some "hand-me-down" boots from her.  We may no means wear the same size clothes, but we do have the same shoe size.  I call them "hand-me-down" boots, because Ains has had them for two years and worn them once.  I wondered into my old closet her closet and found them.  They were barely any scuff marks on them.  I flat out told her they were mind now. Love you, Ains!

Yes, those are rolled up magazines.  Perfect solution to slouchy boots.
I have worn them a couple times after I adverse possessed them.
Anyway, I love my sister! I know she will be successful in whatever she decides to do. Starving artist, lobbyist, or doctor.

Any sibling "rivalries" out there?
