The last minute. Down to the wire. I’ve been meaning to put together a fashion piece for the ECHL all season, but it came literally down to an elimination game for me to get my act together. Game 5 between the Stockton Thunder and the Bakersfield Condors, the Thunder with their backs to the wall down 3 games to 1. The ECHL is generally more relaxed when it comes to their press, but I think it always wise to err on the side of professionalism and go for the highest level. I like to wear reds, greys and blacks, however the Condors have a lot of red and black in their sweaters so I shied away from that color combo. I opted to wear a bit of dusky tan, to pull in the colors of the Military Appreciation Jerseys the Thunder wear on the last regular season home games and which dot the landscape of the stands. I will warn you I’m not a thrifty shopper but that is partially because I struggle to find fashions that fit both my style and my small frame. I have a weakness for handbags and shoes, so you will see these are the more pricey pieces that make up my media ensemble.

Media Tip: For elimination games, not only is it a good idea to pack some snacks just in case it goes to an epic overtime, but if you suffer from anxiety like me, ginger chews are a lifesaver for calming the nerves. They are perfect for that third period 3-2 close one and for before you head to the locker room, where the room will either be rockin’ with a win or somber in defeat.


A West Coast girl, born and raised in the Bay Area in the most non-traditional Hockey Market you could imagine for a long time... When the Sharks came to town it changed the Bay Area hockey landscape forever. Her first love will always be the Red Wings but she has embraced the Sharks since their debut in 1991. She has a passion for minor league grind-it-out-in the-corners hockey. Her heart broke when the ECHL Bulls folded , but luckily the Stockton Thunder are still close enough for her to get her gritty-hockey fix. Besides watching hockey, she is an American Tribal Style belly-dancer and trolls the blue-line, playing defence in a local rec hockey league... A somehow strange but balanced juxtaposition.
