Celebrating Houndstooth

It's been a whole week since Alabama secured their 14th national championship and Gameday Style would like to honor the Crimson Tide with some houndstooth adoration.  I love the fact that an entire fan base has embraced a classic fabric pattern from a hat and practically turned it into one of their school colors!  The beloved Bear Bryant's famous houndstooth Trilby (some say Fedora, but technically it's a Trilby) hat...

Houndstooth has always been popular with Bama gals, but the fashion world took notice that it was a trend in the fall of 2009...right before Alabama won their 13th national championship.  The houndstooth look is still around in high fashion and maybe it's a good luck charm for the Tide.  This look is from Erdem on netaporter.com.




lovemaegan.com tells us how to make (yes, I said "make") our very own 
houndstooth shoes...






This is all enough to make me think of a couple other famous Alabamians, Forrest Gump and his shrimpin' buddy Bubba.  Instead of Shrimp Gumbo, Shrimp Etouffee, Fried Shrimp, Shrimp and Grits, shrimp, shrimp, shrimp, it's houndstooth coozy, houndstooth scarf, houndstooth door wreath, houndstooth shaker, houndstooth nail polish....

How could any stylish someone not love houndstooth?  You've got gameday style if you're wearing it, no matter what team you're cheering for.

Congratulations, Alabama, on #14!

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.
