Culture Shock | Car Show
Never in my life have I been mistaken for being a “car person.” Although I hold a strange sense of pride for Calvin, my rare, 2-door Ford Explorer, partaking in the obsession which flocks millions of Americans to car shows has failed to grasp my attention. That being said, the aesthetic care and artistic value which goes into the car enthusiasts hobby relates closely to my own hobby (only this is fashion for engines).
I’ve never been to a car show, though the thought of attending one of these glamourous and thrilling events has always been a personal bucket list entry. I heard about a car event happening at the Kansas City International Airport, and I was not going to miss out on this opportunity of exploring this new atmosphere. The event consisted of mint-condition classic cars, majestically displayed by their proud owners.
The weather was chilly and I was happy I’d need to layer. One of my favorite styling tricks is the combination of a top with a dress or romper. This gives the illusion that you are wearing a top with a pair of shorts or a skirt, and simultaneously layering for warmth. A long jackets can make a statement, by bring out the metro girl that is within you. I proudly own the metro style I acquired by being a New York resident for nine years. Lacking hair has made beanies my go-to head accessory, especially when layering, which brings out a more balanced look.
GLADLY is a striking bootie, the lace up is oozing elegance, and there is no other material I like better on a shoe than leather. An added bonus to these babes is that they look just as breath taking with a pair of tights, convenient of any weather.
Everyone was out having a good time, and sharing the stories of their prize possessions. Cars are more than just a method of transportation and I learned that by attending this event. I was complemented on my attire by the few car owners I spoke with, and their appreciation for the look paralleled my appreciation for their cars.
