Smashville Welcomes Two New Fans

It’s official, after one hockey game in Smashville, aka Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, we have turned into Predators fans! If you didn’t catch our Insta stories from the game, the arena was packed to the brim with yellow-clad fans that are not to be messed with. After our first goal, we were high-fiving with strangers and learning hilarious chants that have made these fans famous. Coming from New York and Boston, we didn’t think any fans could be as passionate, but we were wrong. Smashville, as they call it, is as rowdy as rowdy gets. Chants like “YOU SUCK!” and “IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT!” had us cracking up. Even in between periods when the fans are refueling on beer and snacks, there’s a live band. How Nashville is that?!

We’re proud to be Preds fans, and promise to invest in some yellow and navy gear. Our current wardrobe as you know only consists of black, white, and red. Maybe for our next game we’ll do a styling tutorial for our female readers, because a jersey and jeans can get redundant. Perhaps since everyone wears yellow we’ll go for navy blue with yellow accents. Ladies, what’s your go to style for sporting events??

Jumpsuits, Any Old Iron. Necklace, Doxahlogy. Silver sunnies, Urban Outfitters. Jacket, Zara. Patent boots, Aldo.

Back when we were living in NYC, we were strolling down Orchard Street after a gallery event. A storefront caught our eye with vintage gems and rock and roll fashion. It was called Any Old Iron. We played a little bit of dress up, and not long after found out it was closed. As fate would have it, we moved to Nashville, Tennessee only to find out Any Old Iron owner Andrew Clancey did the same exactly two years ago! After only two weeks here in Nashville, we made it a point to visit the store and have a little photoshoot.

We didn’t need to bring along much clearly ‘cus the sequins do all the talking, but we did bring this open collar chain necklace we recently picked up from a local Nashville jewelry shop called Doxahlogy. We’re lucky to be in close proximity to Doxahlogy, not only because the owner and designer Danica is a sweetheart, but because her jewelry is amazing (and affordable!)

And if you’re wondering, yes everyone that drove by stared at us. And if you’re wondering, that’s what makes it fun. Costume for life. Goodbye minimalism.

Green Jumpsuit with a Chevelle to match

October 10, 2017

Jumpsuit, BCBG. Sunnies, LAMB. Car, 1969 Chevelle SS (borrowed from brother)

This past weekend was my niece’s 1st birthday! I hopped on a plane to Scottsdale, Arizona for the unicorn themed festivities. In conclusion… I ate way too much cake and probably a lot of glitter too! I happen to be her *fairy* Godmother as well, and I’m pretty sure that glitter is a main food group for fairies. So, I’m okay with it. Anyways, enough about glitter (although, let’s be honest. You can never have too much glitter talk.) 

I grew up fixing up antique cars with my brother and dad. Most people don’t know this, but if I wasn’t a blogger I wanted to have an antique car/motorcycle autobody shop. You can see hints of it in my closet (i.e. 10 jumpsuits.) This car is still a work in progress, but it is one of my dream cars. A 1969 Chevelle SS. That car is hot, right?! My brother keeps it out in Arizona, but we go crusin’ (and by cruisin’ I mean gunnin’ it and burnin’ rubber) when I visit.

I happen to be wearing my new emerald green jumpsuit from BCBG to the baptism, so I had to pull over and snap a couple pics with this beautiful machine that matched me perfectly. It needs a paint job, but we’ll get there. If you were wondering, no we did not break down. It runs just fine. I just thought I would look cooler if the hood was up. I think we can all agree that I do 🙂 

Back in Nashville till Friday when we head up to Boston and Maine. Stay tuned on our Insta story (@WanderLustGirls) for real time updates!
