ride or die

Tuesday, February 3, 2009
I have friends that always do things for their boyfriends. Nice thoughtful things all the time. Unfortunately, I'm not very warm and fuzzy so you won't see me purchasing boxers or tiny teddy bears anytime this year for Valentine's day, or any day for that matter.

But, I am willing to try new things and hang out in the BF's element. After all, he did accompany me to the Cleveland Art Museum for the Tiffany exhibit for my birthday.

I was oh so lucky to attend the motorcycle show this past weekend in Cleveland. I was new to the scene last year and didn't know what to expect from this show. I also didn't realize the amount of walking either, so I wore comfortable Pumas versus anything with a heel this year.

I went with my BF, met my parents who purchased a Harley last year and another couple - she shared the same love of bike shows that I do.

Instead of taking pictures of our BFs on the bikes like so many other women were, we were the ones off the to side chatting about anything and everything - there's a lot of people watching to be had. We only would move when the BFs would motion for us to follow them or we noticed that it's been 20 minutes and they were nowhere to be found. Plus, you can't deny the fashion happening there - chaps, shrunken leather jackets and boots OH MY!

Here are some sample shots of the day.

Here's the BF trying on a coat.


Here's one of the many awesome outfits and hair styles.


Here's me standing by the awesome outfit and filling out to a chance to win a $500 gas card.

Thanks very much. I'm much funnier online versus in person - trust me.

Katie said...

You're way cuter than that chick. WAYY cuter. She looks like a cracked out version of Christina Applegate.

What in the bloody hell is that woman's hair doing? It's like a short Farrah Fawcett-esque catastrophe.

Sounds like a fun day. I would much rather go to a motorcycle show with a bf than buy them boxers or teddy bears. So not my thing either.

is that farrah faucett?

Allison M. said...

Deutlich - I'm still scared to ride on it.

Katie - it was an interesting version.

Alexa - Yes, I'm with you - Harley's all the way.

Always a Bridesmaid - I think she hairsprayed while she was using the curling iron.

Lbluca77 - fun with heavy machinery!

Fizzgig - no, but it was a different version of it.

Damn girl, am I the 40-something married version of you?
Nothing says fashion like white pleather go-go boots and matching belt. Unless you fry your hair with Sun In and curl it in giant turd curls...

Allison M. said...

Scandalous Housewife - well, everyone has their own style. I guess I stuck out there too, right?

I knew I should've tried on a pair of chaps.

Katelin said...

Lil' Woman said...

Not too be mean, but it looks like one of those older ladies that still try to look young and hip...i could be wrong.
