inspiration monday: the thunder rolls

well, we did it. we went to see the thunder from down under. i mentioned a while back that we were thinking of going, and we did it. and i am not unhappy about that decision. nora, erin, my friend theresa and i all hopped in the car and made the short road trip to the medina show room to see a group of half mostly naked aussie men dance (very badly i might add) to hits of the 90s. seriously, i haven't laughed so hard in a long time. i'm pretty sure the intention of their shows is not meant to be comical, but for real, there is no way you can take these guys seriously. i mean, at one point, they all came out dressed like gangsters from the 20s, and they shot their pants off with fake guns. shot.their.pants.off. you didn't read that wrong.

today's inspiration is pippa middleton. i love her outfit. it's casual and cute and she mixes fun textures, colors and patterns.

  10. Oh gawd. I'd be nervously laughing/screaming my way through that whole show. I can't handle it! Haha!

    I like both of your interpretations. It's fun to see how you guys don't literally copy the outfit but find ways to make it your own.

  15. I saw the Thunder Down Under in Vegas once, and seriously...it's hilarious. There's no way to NOT laugh at creepily oiled men dancing in ridiculous outfits. I'm glad you had a good time :)

    I loved this inspiration look today, and I love what you both did with it. Megan, the teal tights are gorgeous. And Nora, that purple dress is my favorite!

  16. ummmm....I really want to see someone shoot their pants off. That being said, you both look adorable. I really like the pops of turquoise on Megan's outfit.

  21. Very fun takes on the inspiration this week! Megan's color coordinated tights and belt are so great! I love Nora's dress and those tall boots...and of course Mimi steals the show!
    LOVE her boots and I thought that was a Missoni sweater! She is a doll!!

  22. Ha, even your description of the Thunder is hilarious! I love your looks so much better than Pippa's! You both give the look a funky touch, with color or with pattern mixing.

  23. I think you girls rock even more than Pippa does! Although you did carry the inspiration very well!

    I am crazy for the turquoise tights and totally smitten by the little one (cuteness galore!!).

Nora's outfit is feminine and sweet, I love the striped cardi, so playful and fun. With the baby the outfit looks even cuter! Ha... hope to find some time to join in the fun.
