I don’t normally write too sports specific on this blog. I leave that to the boys, who usually know a bit more than me instinctually. But on this occasion, I can’t help it. I am bursting with Pony Pride! Cheesy? Yes. But, true.
I’ve had football season tickets for six consecutive years, along with a few before I moved away to NYC (kind of hard to commute from Manhattan). And now I’m in my second year of basketball season tickets. I cannot explain what it feels like to watch a sports program at SMU light it on FIRE the way Larry Brown has with our basketball program. It is awe-inspiring.
Check out this video and tell me it doesn’t inspire you. They play it to open every home game. I’ve watched 100x now. Chills. Every. Time.
I shot the finally seconds of the game last Saturday the 8th against #7 Cincinnati. I’ve never seen anything like it since beginning my SMU career in the Fall of 1998. I’m so proud that the students are as supportive and excited as they are of our extraordinary team. You can watch my little iPhone video on our YouTube page. Next time I’ll shoot wide. I was just too excited to think!
After a hiatus the last couple years, the much-requested Ruana is back at Gameday Cloth. Versatile and so much cuter than a cardigan.

I can’t help but get a bit nostalgic around the holidays. We’ve had our first doors open now 1,263 days. (Yes, I just used days as my measure of time). Sometimes it feels like no time at all, but most of the time it feels like the longest 3 1/2 years of my life.
I focused a lot over the Christmas season about getting my heart in the right place and making sure I saw what was important. It’s easy to allow stress and pressure to succeed to bring you down and overwhelm you. I will admit, there were a few times this year I thought Gameday Cloth was going to open up like a Blue Whale and swallow me whole.
But sitting on the precipice of 2014, reflecting back, as one does, on 2013, I’m grateful. I’ve met some of the most amazing people I couldn’t imagine my life without all because of the store – customers, employees, vendors; all now friends. I’ve been able to see a dream realized. I had a vision in my head and it is now an actuality. How many people are lucky enough to say that in their life? And what fashion female wouldn’t be excited about a massive store that also acts as your personal closet and shopping spree? Let’s be real.
I’m not one for resolutions. I’d rather try and make a positive change I can keep. Some may say that’s a resolution, but for some reason, once that’s what it’s labeled, I break it. Two years ago I vowed to make more time for myself, last year to focus more on work and this year I will focus more on those around me. Of course, I also vow to get out of debt and pray every day, but neither of those have yet to come to fruition after years of attempts. But sitting here today in the quiet, I’m so proud of what the store looks like and has become and am so grateful for all of the people that have gotten us to where we are. It seems only fitting that I spend my next year investing in those people that have so tirelessly invested in me, us and our dream that is Gameday Cloth.
Colosseum believes clothing should move seamlessly between the activities of every day life – without requiring a wardrobe change. Colosseum is activewear that performs as beautifully as it looks.
Like the Colosseum of Ancient Rome, American women are strikingly versatile: they perform, compete, strength train and meditate.
Designer for motion, the collection offers three categories: Running, Training and Active Lifestyle, addressing the needs of serious athletes without sacrificing beauty, comfort or style. We at Gameday Cloth believe in the beauty of their Active Lifestyle collection and are beyond excited to now feature it in our Shops at Legacy location.
Let Colosseum inspire the fitness-fashionista in you.
SO MUCH FUN! We got a call a couple weeks ago asking to put together looks for a Red River fashion segment on Good Morning Texas for Friday, Oct 10th. I’ve only been on a TV set a handful of times and, let me tell you, nothing gets you going more than LIVE TV! (no pressure).
I grabbed a couple friends and GDC girls and LOVED putting my styling hat back on. Now that we have the GDC Denim Bar I can truly style head to … well, ankle. It was a little chilly to rock our Havaianas or Hari Mari’s.
Look at how cute these girls were!
The stylist doing the segment for GMT was Jeannette Chivvis and she’s posted the video and some more pics on her blog. I couldn’t help but snag a few of my own pics as well.
When do we get to do it again??!!??!
From L to R: (everything can be found at GDC).
