Last month, we had our annual multicultural day at church. It was the most beautiful service ever. It's a day when each person/team dresses up as a national of a foreign country. No better time to have such than right after the Olympics and just before the Paras; keeps the spirit going. (side note: my church is located right next to the Olympic park :D #coolStuff).
I made a last minute suggestion to the media team that we dress as the #TeamUSA athletes because we're winners like that! #TeamGoldMedallists lol... To relieve stress, I offered to make the skirts for the girls, trying to give Ralph Lauren a run for his money lol... Ok so here's a reminder of what their uniform was:
Ok a bit of an overshare but y'all get the gist. I decided to make navy skirts instead as I figured it'd be easier for the girls to find a white shirt in a week than to get navy blazers + white skirts (which they most likely do not own already). You might say that's not the uniform but it's all about perception and the idea they portrayed was "Preppy Sailors". I think we came pretty close as a group. Thumbs up to the guys for bringing to the best of their ability! I found some preppy looking ties at primark for the guys and scarves for the girls.
I kept getting the not so shocking : "You're French right?" because of the beret, but #TeamFrance didnt even wear the beret at the olympics and they had their girls in trousers.
