Casual Wear Fall 2014

Fashion isn't always about dressing up. Sometimes it's about comfort. Laid back clothing for some laid back bouting. 

(Being at your own club means never having to apologize for not shaving)

Let your hair down (without fear of getting carded) and just hang out with friends 

Rock some togs that wouldn't pass muster at a competition

Try some sartorial experiments--it's ok if they don't work

(OK, that one didn't work. But good try.)

Quietly catch up on repairs

Or not so quietly

Or heck, just make do with duct tape

It's just family, right?

Point in Lining

My college teammate Valerie created something awesome

She found a shirt made from a fencing pattern, and had a tailor turn it into the lining for a jean jacket

I'm modeling it here because Valerie was busy fencing

She took women's gold in epee at the Tom Wright memorial Veteran's competition

Allison and I had a good day, too. Allison took bronze in Women's foil and earned her D

I took gold in women's foil and bronze overall. Missed my "B" by two points. Again. 

But overall, I'm not sure I wouldn't rather have swiped Valerie's jacket...
