Last week, as part of our American Advertising Federation functions, the Ocala club hosted the Summer Conference. Part of the fun included a Pub Crawl around our downtown area Saturday night. We custom made t-shirts for the event. They had the Pub Crawl logo on the front, and we left the back of the t-shirt empty. We also gave all the participants Sharpies. The idea was to have them collect signatures from people all over and make new Ocala friends. I happily surprised with the results! The T-shirts were all instantly customized. Yes, all of them! We went from simple plain white t-shirts to Project Runway wannabes. I guess I shouldn’t be that surprised at this coming from advertising professionals, being as creativity and design is part of our daily routine. What I’m most happy about is the way we all took this opportunity to let the little rock star in us shine.
You know what I'm talking about, right? The times where you take an outfit and make it yours. It doesn’t matter if you and your best friend are wearing exactly the same thing, you make yours looks different. It may be something you add to it, or it may simple be your attitude. The way we dress says so much about us, but the way we “wear it” says even more. I didn’t feel I needed to do much to my t-shirt. I stretched it a little, rolled the sleeves a bit, and made it look like a dress. Everybody love it! Were they surprised I was wearing a “shirt dress?” Not at all, because whatever I’m wearing, I always make sure it looks sexy and with a little attitude. Every single piece of clothing that I own says something about me.
Even though I live in “Slowcala” I still manage to find treasures and give them my own flavor. I am still amazingly happy that Jezebel’s named a shirt after me! It is a big honor to have your style of clothing recognized, really makes the Rockstar in me shine....
How do you make you Rockstar shine?
