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.

I’m still not giving up my disco. So there.

The Fashion Bandits. We like glitter. And casual. Good mix.

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.

And no – we’re not sponsored by Adidas. We just love their stuff. But hey! With all this free advertising we really should be, so have a think about that one, Adidas!
