New Year's Eve Dressing (with Team Spirit!)

For those bowl game traveling folks who are on location for New Year's Eve, you might be in need of a party dress with some school spirit.  When you are traveling with the team, you always want to coordinate with your team colors.   I've had many moments, in bowl game travels and in my college town, that have called for a cocktail dress suitable for a university-sponsored party.  While there are many places to get darling gameday dresses (check Gameday Style's "Gameday Uniform Style" category), NYE calls for a frock with a dressier edge.

For a quick solution, you can use


J.Crew is known for their basics with interesting details in many different colors every season (I stock up when my team color is one of their season's colors).  Here are a few sweet party dresses in their Bridesmaid and Party dress collection that you can get in a fun color.

Blakely dress

Selma dress

Sinclair dress


Keep your eyes out for cute bright evening shoes, belts, bags and jewels to dress up bright pieces such as these...or to make your little black dress into a dress with a lot of
 gameday style!

Happy Gameday

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!


You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.



Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.   www.snackadium.com.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:



The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
