What To Do When You're Snowed In

snowed in with #bae - bacon and eggs
So the Polar Vortex aka Snowpocalypse aka Snowmaggedon aka Stay the BLEEP Indoors has came and went and now you're stuck indoors. On the contrary, this doesn't eliminate you from making the best of it. In no particular order here are my suggestions of what to do in a state of emergency blizzard.
  1. Crank dat Soulja Boy - celebrate an unexpected day of not working
  2. Drink lots of wine - make your own wine tasting session, because culture
  3. Research the history of salt - or whatever other inquisition you've been meaning to discover 
  4. Watch old French black and white films - Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless will leave you just that
  5. Eat a crap load of ice cream - because why not

Event: UO x Champion

Urban Outfitters' Space 98 in Williamsburg hosted the launch party for Champion Select, a collaboration with designers Wood Wood, Timo Weiland, and Craig Green. 

The Champion Select collection includes elevated, fashion‐forward active wear looks for men and women utilizing heritage Champion fabrications and branding. Each of the designers began their process by visiting the Champion archives for inspiration, and selecting their favorite fabrications to use for their capsule collections. The resulting looks are inspired by the designers’ own memories and interactions with the iconic brand – whether it was wearing Champion as a youth or seeing classic imagery and advertisements from the past.

“For over thirty years, Champion has introduced creative and innovative designs for athletic wear, from performance to lifestyle, starting with the first sports bra and the iconic reverse weave hoodie,” said Ned Munroe, Chief Global Design Officer, Champion Athleticwear.
