Football: Designer Bootcamp

Posted: August 25, 2010 by NattieLiz in Fans, NCAA Football, NFL, Trends, What not to wear

So with our Football count down to just about 8 days, it’s time to start getting ready for the big games. The first thing to worry about is of course, wardrobe. Whether you are tailgating at the stadium or kickin’ it at a bar, you MUST REP’ YO TEAM! I find the best way to do this is through absurdly annoying personalized T-Shirts.

Here is your first tutorial on how to prepare THE BEST personalized Team Shirt! ( this method will work to represent your relatives, boyfriends, hook ups, or even haters in the NFL or NCAA).

Step 1. Preparation.

These shirts can be made the day of, but I DO NOT recommend this method. Preparation is every thing, a shirt that has not been thought out, looks pretty dumb. The goal is to look cute and supportive, not like you were hung over and taped on some numbers. (trust my I have been there, and Willie Cooper #28 should have been embarrassed by our display of support that day).

Step 2. Finding the right top.

Target is now your best friend (or well now like your Super Friend, cause who doesn’t already LOVE Target). American Apparel is also a GREAT place to find something with a little more spice. Try to find a top that doesn’t have a lot of stretch to it.. sadly wife beaters are not the golden ticket on this design. Finding a school color is ideal, but if you can’t then stick with something white, because you don’t want to go to a game and have the wrong shade of red and look like an SC fan when you were rooting for Standford… embarrassing much??

Step 3. The Iron-Ons

Iron-ons are the best way to go. Forget paint, or markers, or puffy paint, they all suck. Again, iron ons are the ONLY way to make these a success. Get the school colors and #’s that you will need to make the best possible shirt, but be warned that the packaging on these is super annoying. They normally only have one of each letter or #, So your best bet is getting a group of girls to go all in with you so you can buy plenty and split the cost.

Step 4: Try on the shirt and don’t RUSH

Try the shirt on, place the letters, read the directions, and TAKE YOUR TIME! Don’t rush through this process or you will come out with a WACK final product that your ass has to wear for almost 3 hours at a time. Be gentle with the iron: don’t leave it too long and don’t peel it too soon.. I know, I know, so much pressure!! but I promise when done right, you will be looking sharp!

Step 5. WEAR WITH PRIDE!

Prance and Frolic accordingly! Wear your shirt with pride!! and if you spill on it.. keep on truckin because most likely you are not going to be wearing the same one every weekend.. they are purely for novelty purposes and they catch the eye’s of a lot of dudes. Look it’s not only a classy piece of wardrobe, it’s a DATE Finder!! or a free beer finder, either way its  a WIN WIN!!!

Good luck ladies!! I cant wait to see what you come up with this year!

What not to wear: BASEBALL

Posted: June 5, 2010 by NattieLiz in Dating, MLB, What not to wear

So you have batted your lashes, played the game, and snagged yourself a new hottie. I mean it is to be expected, it’s the summer time. Those summer flings are only meant to last until September, then its back to reality! But in the mean time, you and your new boy have to figure out ways to pass the long summer together:

ENTER: The inevitable, Baseball game date.

Yup, you either loath it or you love it. I’ve heard some girls describe it as “the most boring game ever” (that’s cause you probably don’t get it, but that’s not the point right now) and some girls, like ourselves, know there is nothing better than a hot dog, an ice-cold beer, baseball cap, and some good old fashion heckling of outfielders (depending on your seat location, of course).

Here is a quick guide to get the most out of this experience:

1. Opt for a night game. Listen, its summer all over the US…so depending on where you are it’s either super hot, super humid, or god forbid: BOTH. Think about it like sitting in the sauna with make up on, then going on a date with out a shower… it’s gross. don’t do it. Night games all the way!

2. It’s not a club, So please don’t wear heels. (unless you want to get made fun of, then by all means…). Now don’t go crying that you can’t possibly look cute cause you can’t dress to the 9’s. This is your chance to be low key, show another side, prove that you can be fun and laid back, don’t blow it because you love your new Steve Madden summer wedges, they live to be worn another day.

3. Don’t go over board. Just because it’s the only shirt you own that is Dodger Blue, doesn’t mean you have to wear it. No one is expecting you to come dressed like the team mascot either. Don’t go out and buy a brand new Braves hat, shirt, socks, underwear with matching bra…it’s too much. Not to mention you end up looking like the 7-year-old girl whose dad brought her to the game.

4. Comfy and classy. This should be the rule to live by. You are going to be doing a lot of walking, a lot of eating on the fly, getting up and down in your seat, walking up and down stadium stairs, and if you’re any fun, a fair amount of drinking. So wear shoes that make sense, shorts or jeans ( NOT WHITE!!), a cute (aka not slutty) top, and pretend to forget your hoodie so you can wear his 🙂

Follow these 4 rules and you are golden! you and HottieMcBaseball are going to have a great time because you won’t be worried about the ketchup that he just spilled on your new jeans. You were smarter than that!
