What possessed me to dress like a pack of Starburst? I don’t know. Maybe the fact that I was going to a fringe theater show, so why not take a little risk. I will never be the weirdest dressed person at a fringe show, even when I look like a walking bowl of sherbet.
If you’re one of my Indianapolis readers, I highly recommend you see The Great Bike Race, which is at Theatre on the Square on Mass Ave. It’s “loosely based” on the second running of the Tour de France. If you don’t laugh at least 20 times, see a doctor immediately. There’s something wrong with you. If you don’t laugh at all, see a mortician. You are dead. Get tickets here. (This post was in no way sponsored by Indy Fringe or by the Great Bike Race, but I should probably mention I know a couple of people in the show. Still, I don’t even like them that much, so my opinion is totally unbiased.)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (I’ve never understood how that living situation would work anyway – do you pay property taxes?), you probably know that colored jeans have been trending over the past couple years. But here’s a conundrum: aren’t all jeans “colored” unless they’re white? I mean when people say “colored jeans” or “colored denim” they’re talking about jeans that aren’t blue. Right? But blue is a color, people.
And as if that’s not enough of a conundrum, what do we call these jeans? They’re not regular jeans, but they’re still blue. So they’re blue colored jeans? Is anyone else’s mind exploding?!

When I talked to my mom on Mother’s Day (trying to maintain my position as the favorite child), the lovely lady who bore me mentioned that she went shopping recently and was overwhelmed by how many bright colors are in stores these days. “I KNOW! YAY!” I responded. Apparently she was less excited.
So in the spirit of real-lifeness (because that’s why we’re all here, right?) I decided to play with a way to incorporate a super bright color into an otherwise classic work look. I think a bold shoe (better yet, two of them) with a simple outfit is like adding an exclamation point to a short sentence instead of a period. So much more exciting.
So Mom…If I’m not mistaken, I convinced you to buy a pair of orange loafers a couple years ago. It’s time to dust them off (literally – there were cobwebs on them last time I checked) and put them to good use. Why? Because I said so…Does that reason work both ways?
