here's an example. friday before gameday is an unwritten "wear your team colors" day. actually, today it was written - or at least announced on the radio. anyway, i had my cute little alabama shirt and denim skirt and the houndstooth ballet flats that have very nearly bitten the dust (is that the correct past tense of that phrase?) with my houndstooth bangle and hoop earrings. both my kids were wearing alabama colors and little mc had a houndstooth hairbow. but my MAKEUP...
the nails are OPI "I'm not really a waitress" red. it's close to alabama crimson. the eyes...how i wish i was talented enough to paint houndstooth on them. (for aliens and other non-alabama residents, UA has claimed houndstooth as part of our college colors. The Bear - that's Coach Paul Bryant to you - wore a houndstooth hat forEVER and it's recently become a big thing, so we're all over that) i guess it'd look a little bizarre, but hard candy has eye tattoos that come in animal print, for heaven's sake, so is houndstooth really that off? anyway, they're a neutral smoke today. nothing big.
and this is where i'm disappointed in myself. sure, you can tell i'm a roll tide gal by the clothes and jewelry. but what if i wasn't wearing the UA gear? i was thinking about this today and came across something that just thoroughly excited me until i realized they were OUT of the alabama ones (as i tell my friends, the smart people all shop early, so the UA stuff is usually first to go). however, check this out: not only do they have nail decals for your schools, but they sell them with two packs of nail polish!
yep. college team nail decals. but none for the national champions. what am i supposed to do for games??? i'd love to hear your opinions on this! i've got the face tattoos and stuff, but i'd love to know what YOU do for gameday. what unique cosmetic accessory (for lack of a better term) do you don for your team games?
couldn't figure out how i was gonna tie gameday into cosmetics, could you? :) y'all, i'm a southern sweetheart - football trash talk is my native language. like i said, live and breathe it.
leave your suggestions, your trash talk, your comments on how you just don't get this, because you're from north of the line...and go be gorgeous...and ROLL TIDE!!!
