    The Secret to Being a Chess Champ

    Layout about my daughter, the chess champion


    Bottom journaling:
    Oh, yeah! I have got this chess thing down. Itís all about the clothes!! Unfortunately, these photos were taken in bad light. So, although it might not be obvious here, I wore some really cool clothes for my last two tournaments. Dad is more impressed that Iím the highest rated girl in scholastic chess in the whole state. Thatís pretty cool, too, but Iím equally proud of my fantabulous clothes!


    Journaling left side:
    This is me with my first chess coach after winning the city tournament. Iím wearing a corduroy jacket over a knit top. Under my dark-wash jeans you can see the toes of my brown suede high heels. Also note the wide, low-slung belt. I went with straight hair and no bangs.


    Journaling right side:
    This is me at the state finals (where they give really dinky trophies). Since this was an important tournament, I wore my red dress with a brown tank top underneath, and for shoes I chose brown ballet flats with big gold embellishments on the toes. The brown and gold are repeated in my necklace. For my hair I did bangs and a broken curl (which had died after the 14-hour tournament).
