norwayWanna have some fun? Take a minute to Google “Men’s Norwegian Olympic Curling Team Pants” (<– or click right there) and check out the fashion of these guys.

She enjoys new ideas, so one of the items I showed her was a pair of printed leggings. As the custom, she gave me that “oh, really?” look and I, in turn, as the custom, gave her that “yes, don’t be afraid to try” look right back. So she did, and once the seed was planted she was not only buying them for herself but had a pair for two friends back home.
So, Norway takes the gold for the most wild pants and Sound Styles takes the silver.    ~Jenny
