Going for silver

Everything that’s shining isn’t gold. Thank goodness for that. Don’t know about tomorrow, but for today we’re all siver.

Suggested accompanying music: fab Donkeyboy’s Silver Moon!! We love it!

 

Upwards and onwards, darling: let’s go for 2nd place!

Glam meets traditional

Ok so we’ve moved into this lovely old and traditional Norwegian neighbourhood (see the post “Modern meets old” to get the full story). Better study the local clothing traditions. Like knitting. Perhaps we’ll even manage to blend in..?

 

Look, darling! I’m sure I could wear that one! I mean – you’ve managed to go eeeh…somewhat…traditional…?

Noooo! I’ve changed my mind! No way I’m blending into the background! I want my disco!

The Fashion Bandits. We tend not to feel like blending in.

Modern meets old

The Bandits are on the move. Changing habitat, as it were. Will they cope? Will they survive..?

 

Oh dear…oh no…are we really doing the right thing leaving..?

Heading for the Moon

The Fashion Bandits are heading for the moon! Well – of course. Why aim for anything less? No, hang on. World dominion next step. Obviously. But for now…ready for lift-off!

How about some accompanying music? We love Donkeyboy’s “Silver Moon!”

Wedding photos – TFB style

Welcome to our wedding gallery! Sliiiightly different clothes – sliiiightly different poses. Well – TFB style, really.

Finding the right shoes was the easiest task. They had to match our urban baby [dog, if you didn’t get it]. Naturally.

The fashion Bandits. Wearing the right shoes at our wedding. Oh yeah.

Keep it simple. (Mostly Model Bandit Even’s opinion. Mostly not Head Bandit’s.)

Brightening up the skatepark

We love colours. Especially bright colours. ‘Cause bright colours are…eeerrr…bright! And light! And fun! No offence, dear, classic Black, but you are rather…eeeerrr…dark…aren’t you..? So let’s save you for the darker seasons. So…take a holiday! Enjoy yourself! And see you in October!

Suggested accompanying music: The Freestylers’ Weekend song. Yeee-yee-yee-yee-yeey!

 

Colours: More is more and less is just so much less. And more is usually more fun than less. Really. It’s not exactly rocket science.

Looking good in the slopes just took on a whole new meaning…

Neither the right equipment nor the correct outfit? So what?  Bet we’re having a greater laugh than the pros. (Not to mention our spectators.)

Short of the right equipment? And not quite the correct outfit? Who cares. I'm sure we're having a greater laugh than the pros.

Ski Boots Crisis

All women like gifts. But buying clothes/shoes/bags etc. etc. for your beloved is risky business. And ski boots classify as shoes…

 

He bought me bluuuuue boots!! Bluuuuue! How am I supposed to show up in the slopes when I am not colour coordinated?!?
