The Olympics Red + White Fashion Challenge

Don't forget - adding to my BLOGROLL this weekend, please comment if you want to do a link exchange or at least want your blog on my blogroll (I won't be offended)! Thanks!

At long last...here is my post on all my Olympics Outfits.

I'm telling you, I had no idea I could make all this white and red in my wardrobe work but everyday of the Olympics I was put to the test (as were many other Canadians in the city).

+warning - lots of photos, apologies if it makes it slow to load+

That was a wonderful olympics. I was rooting for the Canadians and was so happy to see them win so many gold medals. I wept watching the women's figure skating. It looks like you had a great time with a lot of happy memories. I'm glad you captured so much in photographs to help hod on to your memories and to share them with us.

Adorable AND patriotic! The pics of you with Quatchi and Muk Muk stuffed down your shirt cracked me up--they're my fave mascots of the bunch. I mean, how can you not love a hairy Sasquatch and a marmot shaped like a potato?

P.S. I just added you to my blogroll! I can't believe I didn't have you there before.
