So all you Roller Derby wanna-be babes, like me, we have covered a lot of Fabulous finds in Part 1 of this post. We started with “The Jammin Jewelry” and moved on to “The Blockin Bags“, and amazing array of hand-made, unique, and one of a kind items from all over Etsy, and all with a nod to Roller Derby Divas.

OK girls, it’s time to fess up, how many of you have harbored dreams of Roller Derby stardom? I know I have. There is something so bad-ass about the women who Whip It. There seem fearless, fierce, and wild. At one time or another we have all wished we had a place to go, a secret life, where we were strong and powerful, where we had the camaraderie of kindred spirits, where we could let off some steam. We may never actually have the guts to do it, but we can all dream of a night of Roller Derby action. If you haven’t seen it, you need to have a girl’s night where you order up Drew Barrymore’s Whip It (2009) on your Netflix, and live vicariously. I promise you will love it, Ellen Page is brilliant and it is a girl-power fest.
