I’ve mentioned time and time again, that matinee starts are always a little more laid back in the clothing department. However, matinees usually face-off at 1 pm, not 3 pm as was the case today for Boston vs. Ottawa.
In terms of being game ready, I debated and debated between pants and a skirt. I even picked a top option that would go with either, but in the end the pants and the desire to be comfortable ultimately won out.
I would also like to point out that I am a HUGE advocate for thrift store shopping, I get a weird thrill from finding awesome pieces that cost virtually nothing… I made an unexpected thrift store shop earlier in the week and found 8 awesome articles of clothing and only left a $12 dent in my wallet. What’s the appeal? It isn’t even the money saved (although that’s a huge bonus), it’s finding eclectic pieces, designer duds, things that still have the tag on them, and getting to pair them with things you have at home. I love the idea of owning a shirt, sweater, blouse, skirt, etc that no one else might own because it’s not the “in” sweater that’s being sold at every store right now. I will point out however, that I can’t get past the idea of buying shoes at a thrift store, because, I just can’t. Walking a mile in someone else’s shoes is a great theory, actually doing it – gross.

Media Tip: Pack headphones in your bag and never take them out, you never know when you might need to throw them on to watch something on press level. While possibly enjoyable – annoying your fellow colleagues with a loud YouTube video is not appreciated, I assure you.
