Victoria’s Secret Pink® Collegiate Collection

So reader, I apologize, I am a little late to report this to you, but Victoria’s Secret has an adorable collegiate collection filled with cute tees, hoodies, and pants. Most of the items for my fave college football team, the PITT Panthers, are basically sold out. I did see them in person in the store a few weeks ago, and it was all adorable! I suggest you run, not walk, to your local Victoria’s Secret to see what pieces they have left for your fave team. You won’t be sorry.

1/12/10 UPDATE, MORE ITEMS HAVE BEEN ADDED. CHECK OUT THIS PAGE TO FIND YOUR FAVE SCHOOL :) SCHOOLS

What a nice guy…

I’ve liked Vince Young since I saw him during his 2005 Heisman Trophy nominee interview, and they asked what he liked to do in his free time, he said” hangout with my girlfriend” What a cute response. :) I know his behavior in the past few years has been not so nice, but he has totally redeemed himself in my eyes. I’ve included the story from ESPN.com below….

For one day at least, Vince Young stepped up to try to fill the void for the late Steve McNair’s two young sons, the Tennessean reported Thursday.

Young surprised 11-year-old Trenton and 5-year-old Tyler on Wednesday by showing up at their house and taking them to their school’s “Dear Dads Breakfast” at a local restaurant.


“Those are my boys,” Young told the Tennessean. “I wouldn’t say it was to pay anyone back; it was just out of love. Steve would do it for me. He pretty much did it for me when I was growing up. I have a history with the boys and I want to do anything I can. I am their big brother.”

Julie Dilworth, admissions director at St. Paul Christian Academy, lauded Young’s actions.

“It was a great, great gesture,” Dilworth told the Tennessean. “All the kids had been talking about the dads’ breakfast and [Trenton and Tyler] were wondering what was going to happen with them.

“They were thrilled … the boys came to school with huge smiles on their faces.”

Young had a close relationship with Steve McNair, even before the latter was drafted by the Titans four years ago. He attended McNair’s football camps when he was young. McNair was shot and killed July 4.

Besides being there for McNair’s sons, Young gave other kids at the school jerseys and autographs.

“It was a surprise, and just to see the excitement on their faces, it’s a great feeling,” Young told the Tennessean. “We had a good time eating pancakes. I had an omelet.

“Overall they are doing cool, doing good. Just talking to their mom, I think they are going to be all right. I am always going to be here for them, always.”


Vince Young, keep up the good work. :)

I was lucky enough to go to the Penguins game tonight. And it going me thinking, I may need to expand my site to include chic hockey fashion?! We’ll see……Go Pens!!

I came across this today and had to share it with the members of Steelers nation. Snoop Dogg we love you. They’re all worth watching!

I think I may be psychic….

Alexander Wang’s Spring 2010 collection. Wang’s inspiration was the most popular red-white-and-blue pursuit: football. Look at those shorts! Lace-up caramel leather! Adorable. They look like a deflated football!

I love this collection because it truly combines my two loves in such a beautiful, creative and yet
classic way.

I can’t wait to work some of these pieces into my Spring wardrobe! So athletic, so chic….Athletichic. :)

Sharing is caring..

Hello friends! Well the day has come! September 10th, the start of fashion week and the Steelers season!

In honor of the start of the season. I had my funny friend A.D. type up a little rundown of the upcoming season. Aire, why didn’t you do it, you ask. Its because every time I tried to type something up it ended up just being about the Steelers. So I knew A.D. would do a much better job, he is a fun guy…

Well I just want to say thanks for giving me a chance to post on here and hope yall like it… Well its that time of year again as my tan fades away, and the nights go from long and warm, to short and cold, you know summer is over.. The rainbows get traded in for uggs and the board shorts and trucker hats get turned into jeans and a beanie.. Break out the pea coat and the body paint (not at the same time), because FOOTBALL SEASON IS HERE. There are a few things I just want to mention but not go into because they have already been over done. Brett Favre, we need to change his name to FARREVER because he is never retiring. I think what he did to the Jets last year was awful and I think year after year this continues he is tarnishing his reputation. He was a great player, now he needs to just let go.

Next is Michael Vick. I know that what he did was awful and I am a big dog lover, but there are NFL players who kill PEOPLE who haven’t gone to jail and are still playing in the league and this guy killed and abused dogs (YAH I KNOW ITS AWFUL) but come-on. I’m glad the eagles gave him a chance I just wish he woulda went to some team I like a little bit more.. and speaking of teams I like more how about them STEELERS! What are the odds that the Steelers can be a dominate force like they were last year?? It is pretty ridiculous how long Big Ben and Hines Ward have been hooking up, almost as long as Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson. Tony’s new girl is really sexy but what happens when he blows a game and she has to talk about how awful her main squeeze is?? Awkward much?

2 teams this year are going to try and take a page out of the falcons and ravens playbook.. The jets went out changed their defense and signed Matt Sanchez they are going to be looking for some rookie magic, although there is a lot of pressure on him, there is even more pressure on the number 1 pick Matthew Stafford. The 0-16 lions selected him first overall and he has to at least win 1 game.. and if he does will he be a hero?? Tom Brady is back so the patriots are going to be unreal again, the jets are in trouble because besides the regunned pats they also have to deal with buffalo and the new TO Show.. Is he gonna produce in buffalo? On the other side the Giants should be solid, their running game is gonna be unstoppable but there receiving core should be interesting… how long will the wild cat work for the dolphins before defensive start figuring it out and crushing Pennington.. Well that’s all for now thanks for letting me post and I hope you enjoyed it.

Thanks A.D.

Reader, weren’t you looking for new jeans?

I knew Alyssa Milano had a line of cute, fashionable sportswear. It wasn’t until recently that I checked out her site, http://www.fandalia.com/ I really loved her assortment, mostly because she does not offer pink jerseys, the biggest fashion faux pas!

The collection for the Steelers wasn’t very big, but I did find these jeans. With a blend of 98% Cotton 2% Spandex, these jeans will be perfect for gameday. And with those cute back pockets, its a great way to show off your team spirit!

How adorable is this sweater jacket! This cute, little thing will be sure to keep you warm for those Sunday night games. Check out the site for other great pieces. I think they would all make great additions to your team wardrobe. :)

How to: Measure Dress Shirt Sleeves

I came across this very informative blog post about measuring men’s dress shirt sleeves. I found this information very beneficial and I wanted to share with you. Enjoy :)

Don’t be alarmed. The proper way to measure your sleeve length is from the center of the back of the neck, over your shoulder and down to the center of the back of your hand. It’s common for this sleeve length measurement to be longer than you’re used to. Truth is, you’ve probably been wearing the wrong sleeve length your entire adult life.

Try this – next time you prop your elbows up,take a moment and note how far up your forearms the cuffs of your shirt have moved. If you’re not wearing a custom dress shirt this will probably look mildly ridiculous.

You were probably convinced that your shirts fit fine because when your arms are hanging relaxed at your sides, the cuffs come just to your wrist. It would seem that if you add another inch, they will be too long. After all, you don’t want your sleeve coming over your hand.

You’re absolutely right that you don’t want the sleeve coming up over your hand. With custom fitting shirts this doesn’t have to be the case because can specify the correct cuff size. Most off-the-rack shirts have over-sized cuffs, made to be loose on even the largest wrists. However, a proper fitting cuff will have a circumference of just 2-2.5 inches more than your wrist’s measurement (to the skin). A properly fitting cuff will not slide up your hand when your arms are at your sides. It will hold the cuff in just the right spot at the base of your hand
