Here Comes The Boys

If you were brave enough to venture through the crowds of tourists this week, you may have come across some particular individuals who relaxed into the vacation spirit. Some chose to wear the modern take on ski attire, while others were a bit more distinct about their style. Take a sigh of relief if you don’t see yourself within this portfolio of Fernie Fashion Victims.

Fashion Police

Individuality is back this week. We went from skin tight to drop dead unflattering. The hots trends we had pushing through the top button was straight from the Craft Shop. Everyone had been taking tips off Lady Gagas eccentric look.

Fernie is famous for its sense of style. We have some talented designers out there creating there own versions of Gaga’s wardrobe.

If these look weren’t enough to handle, celebs were in Fernie this week. I spotted Charlie Sheen on Happy Hour in Kelsey’s, while Paris Hilton was seen  in the Bears Den, with an ‘o’ cute ski patrol guy.

Stay tuned for more updates from the Magic Carpet!

One Kiss Or Two

If you have not had time to buy into consumerism this year for you loved one, there is no need to worry.

While you loved one is still asleep pop into town and grab their favorite morning tipple. Cover your disposable cup with one of these coverings to say ‘I love you’.

The perfect romantic gesture for caffeine obsessed!

Missed Connections

Missed Connections - Alex Cvijovic
You are blonde, with brown eyes…no blue…wearing a plaid shirt, black toque and boots. Size 11. Our eyes locked, it was love at first sight. Hopefully I’ll bump into you again one day. I’d like to take you out for coffee.

This fictitious love story began Saturday morning while I was making my journey to work. I was not sure if I had slept well that night or perhaps the sunshine had contributed towards my mood, on this mysterious early morning I was happy and feeling excited about the day. As I made my way along the roadside, I was strutting in my new crampons like a 6 year old in her latest shoes. I noticed a continuing set of shoe prints pronouncing out of the freshly laid snow. Unaware who these prints belonged to, I followed the same pathway with this innominate person. As we walked side by side, my imaginary friend and I continued onto the path along the river. We took photographs and made dinner plans. He even introduced me to his friends. At an interchangeable junction his footprints became muddled and lost within others. Without going too low I was unable to determine where and which direction he had gone to. No time to spare I continued forth on my journey, having to hope that our paths would lay in the snowy path soon again. Glancing to and from the path, I thought we reconnected, though I mistook him for a pair of Sorel footprints.

This footprint moment was a gratification for the day. Though this missed connection was a play on observations, I thought who and where these footprints belonged too. Where they looking for there owner, left along in the cold path. We had been both travelling in the same direction but at different times. Had the anonymous person observed others tracks or was oblivious to the surroundings?

Is it just my wild imagination or do others ponder whose tracks surfaces beside them? If you have had a missed connection perhaps we should introduce this to STS. Is there a person whom you have noticed on the ski hill looking particularly cute or a dog walker you greet every morning, just too shy to open say hello.

Just to let you know I do have a boyfriend and I am not looking on an escapism. I am mentally well, though at times my imagination may run quicker than my toes.

Paper Winter

Paper Winter by Alex CvijovicChristmas is over and the New Year is in full swing. We are all back at work and Overwaitea has the Valentine confectionery out already. The weather has been interchangeable, convincing us that rain is the new form of snow.

What to do when it is a wet weather play day?

Do you remember playing with paper dolls when you were a kid? This redundant form of play and creativeness will make you all turn off the television and hold a glue stick in hand. Continuing with the theme of last week’s Cut’n’Paste, I have created something you can all cut and paste together…

I have composed a selection of items which you will all be missing from your winter wardrobe. Now you can show Mum in Australia and the Grandparents in Ontario all that Christmas money they sent you has been utilized in suitable clothes, other than on Fernie First Trax.

All you need to do is find the most pleasing photograph of yourself or friend, then dress it up with your new wardrobe. I shall run through this week’s Top Ten key pieces:

1. Florescent work-wear. Not only for the workman in your life, this item can be used to keep you dry during those heavy downpours and keep you visible during a whiteout. I wouldn’t suggest hitch hiking in the outfit, you may be asked to maintain the highway.

2. Toy Dog. For those skiers that don’t ski, but want to been seen. Let this cute companion bring you girls who will just want to stroke this chick puller.

3. Kiss Me Quick Hat. A basic buy while on holiday in England. Why not bring this souvenir into Fernie’s circulation?!

4. Bad Sweater. Why not!?

5. Leather Pants. Water repellent, a great protector and a massive turn on for the opposite sex.

6. Olympic Jersey. If you’re still not quite reaching the athletic skills of Olympians, wear this jersey to convince others.

7. One- Piece. Every ski hill has them and every one should own one. This is a new one-piece from a range at WillyFinder.

8. Fur Coat. At a high majority of Europeans ski resorts and very pimp. You can wear this one in paper, though I am not condoning the fur trade. Keep fur on the mammals that need them.

9. I Love Canada Hat. Because you are all so patriotic.

10. Tie Dyed T-Shirt. They just look cool and horrid at the same time.
For the person/team who creates the most imaginable Paper Doll I shall personally buy you a Mystery Price from the Salvation Army for your efforts.

Please send all entries to alex.cvijovic@yahoo.co.uk

The winning entry shall be shown next week.
