Stripes + Rock ‘N Roll

July 10, 2012

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a fun dinner filled with writers and bloggers from all over Cincinnati.  We were all gathered together to see the new window displays built by the folks at Landor, who now inhabit the old Shillito department store in downtown Cincinnati.  I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the event, or what to wear.  It was called the Rock ‘n Roll Dinner party, because the window displays they created were inspired by a road trip the Landor media team took down to SXSW with a Cincinnati band, Ohio Knife. Based on all of that information, I decided that I wanted to strike a mix between “I tried” and “not trying too hard”.   I think it was a success, what say you?

In other news, I think we should create a petition to bring back the Old Navy army vest.  Everyone loves it.  (See how I wore it Here, Here, and Here)  Everyone wants it.  For goodness sake, Old Navy, make it again!!!  You’ll make money, and I have tons of blog comments to prove it!
