This was my Super Bowl outfit -- I wanted to be as comfortable as possible while sitting on a couch, so I wore my recent thrifting finds.The coat is my favorite part of the ensemble. It reminds me of a Navy peacoat, so I played that up with my nautical accessories. I can't wait to restyle it.
The best laid schemes of mice and men often get screwed up -- I had every intention of getting these photos posted last night, but my computer was going slow. The best way to combat an irksome computer? Taking a little cat nap on my bed. The nap turned into full-on sleep and I ended up forgetting the photos and missing the last 10 minutes of the Super Bowl. Oh, well.
I am not a big fan of pro football. I can get excited about college football and basketball, but I just never got into pro sports. I am one of those people who gets excited over commercials. I took an advertising class one year and my professor kept talking about how wonderful it is to study advertising in the spring semester because you are required to watch Super Bowl and Oscars commercials for class. Tough assignment for sure, haha.
I wasn't really into most of the commercials from this year, because it seemed like a lot of them were about men complaining about the women that are ruining their given rights to be 'manly men.' I understand the Super Bowl is supposed to cater to mostly male interests because of its supposed testosterone-driven audience, but millions of women watch as well and many are passionate fans of the game. I found a couple of these ads offensive, alienating and most of all, embarrassing to the companies using them. Some of you might disagree and think I'm missing the humor in a few of them, and that's totally fine and I respect your opinion if you do. But I think these commercials didn't make either gender look so great and the advertisers missed an opportunity. Jezebel has a good gallery here of some of those ads.
I did, however, really like Google's 'Parisian Love' commercial. Simple, to the point and sweet.
Did you watch the Super Bowl, and if so, did you have any favorite moments from the game or the commercials?
