Olympics 2012

OK, I guess.
Congratulations to Ralph Lauren on his winning  2012 US Olympic uniform that the athletes will be wearing at the opening ceremonies in London. I love the vintage preppy look, the "made in China" not so much. I wouldn't be lying if I didn't say that I was a little disappointed that the sketches and ideas that I sent in for consideration to the Olympic Committee were met with mild acceptance. I do think that sending them back to me with the word "Wacko" written across them was a bit harsh. You were my ideas for what the US Olympians should be wearing at the opening ceremonies.

The Real Housewives
Nothing says USA like the Real Housewives of (fill in the blank). Inspired by the lovely ladies of the RHW the look for the female athletes would include injections (in face and boobs), short tight skirts, low cut tops, very high heals, designer handbag, catty comments and lots of hair extensions. The uniform for the men would be simple: a creepy goatee, an over embellished T, and dark denim jeans, the douche-bag attitude is optional but highly encouraged.

The Kardashians
Who better to inspire the look for the 2012 Olympians that America's sweethearts, the Kardashians!
Pulled right off the rack at the local Sears, the look for the female athlete's would be lots of leopard print, glitter, jumpers, eyeliner, unintelligent comments and lots of posing.  For the male athletes, it really doesn't matter as long as they look good and just kind of stay in the back ground and don't speak.

The Midwestern
No one likes wearing the US flag more than a Midwesterner. Just attend any July 4th picnic and see for yourself. Inspired by the hearty folks in the Midwest, specifically Iowa, imagine the Olympians showing up in sweatshirts with a big US Flag on the front. But not just any flag, it would be glittered, the stars could be buttons, the strips could be red lace and why not add a few lights. The sweats would be simple, no embellishment unless you count the draw string. No need to call attention to ourselves. Shoes would be tennis shoes, something sensible and comfortable not showy...leave that to the sweatshirt. The opening ceremonies do tend to be long and what would any Iowan Olympian need? A fanny pack to hold a cell phone, camera, snacks, and safety pins. This uniform is uni-sex and made by Old Navy..... due to the fact that 99.9% of all Old Navy flag shirts are sold in the Midwest.

Wish me luck in the 2016 Olympics!
