OOTD: Always A Home Game in Baltimore

20131020_154719//Touch By Alyssa Milano Steelers T-shirt//American Eagle Skinny Jeans//BCBG Wedges//


This week for Always A Home Game we traveled to Baltimore to find all of the best Steelers fans and Steelers hangouts for Steelers vs Ravens game day! It was an amazing trip and I got a ton of compliments on my Touch by Alyssa Milano t-shirt. Thank you Alyssa for keeping me looking fashionable on the jumbo tron at Steelers home games!


Steelers gear that Alyssa Milano sent me from her Touch NFL line to wear for Always A Home Game videos!

But the coolest part of the whole trip was that Alyssa herself retweeted Always A Home Game on Twitter and replied to us! Thanks for all of the support Alyssa!

DIY Game Day Fringe Crop Top


Fringe tops are so cute for summer concerts and festivals, so why not a baseball game or even as a cute workout top? I made mine for a Pittsburgh Pirates game and it was so perfect for the night… nice and cool plus sporty and cute!  It is super easy to make and it only cost me a $1 because I found this awesome Nike Pirates T-Shirt at Goodwill from 2009. Not exactly vintage but still pretty sweet! So all you need is a T-Shirt and scissors and this is what you do:

First cut off all of the seams at the neck and the bottom of the shirt and the bottom of the sleeves. It is really easy if you just stick close to the stitching and it should stay pretty even but don’t worry about being perfect because it’s your own shirt and it doesn’t have to be perfect!


Next fold across at the point where you want the fringes to begin. Then cut a small slit on the fold cutting from the folded portion toward the collar of the shirt.



Then unfold the shirt and lay it out flat and cut down to the bottom of the shirt starting at the small slit you made. This is easiest if you just flip the shirt upside down so the top of the shirt is closest to your body and you are cutting away from yourself. Then you should have just one cut in your shirt like the photo below.


Flip the shirt back around so that the bottom of the shirt is closest to your body and hold the fabric that you just cut tight and begin to cut more slits in about quarter inch sections. Again, like cutting the seams, it doesn’t have to be perfect because it will just have your own style to the shirt, with some fringes being thicker than others.



Just keep repeating this process until you make it to the side of the shirt then flip it over to start the back side and just keep making your way around.




The last step is tying knots towards the top of each fringe. Just do a simple knot on each individual piece near the point of where the fringe begins. Again the same rule applies here, it doesn’t need to be perfect!



I styled my fringe crop top with a pair of high waisted jean shorts, Keds and some pirate themed face paint for the “Pirates Super Fan Day!”


I am going to experiment with some more shirts soon so keep checking back for more posts! And I think this would also look really cute with a pair of leggings at the gym!

If you make a shirt send me your photos on Twitter I would love to see them!

Fall Fashion Wish List and Bargain Deals

I love Fall and I am so pumped for all of the Fall fashion trends! There is just something about this time of year that is totally refreshing. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love Summer but it is a nice feeling to pull out the jeans and boots in the Fall and start layering up! There are a ton of hot trends that I’m excited about, but let’s face it sometimes you have to pick out your splurge items and the ones that you can save on! So I broke down my favorite Fall picks, with a wish list and bargain option!


Oxblood, burgandy or whatever you want to call it, was all over the runways and is a hot color right now. I really love the idea of rocking some burgandy as a statement piece or spicing up an outfit with bold oxblood accesories!

Oversized Sweaters

Chunky, oversized sweaters may be my favorite Fall trend this season! I am all about dressing for comfort and these sweaters are so versatile that you can easily dress them up or down! Pair them with a pair of skinny jeans, layered over a maxi dress or add a belt. I think this is definitely a peice every girl should have in their closet this Fall!

Buy 1 get 1 50% off Clearance Items at Gabriel Brothers

I LOVE GABRIEL BROTHERS. Hands down my favorite place to shop.

I am lucky enough to live in an area where Gabes are located and even better there are 3 within a half hour from my house! Anytime I’m remotely close to one I just have to stop — just to look.

I have posted some items on my blog before that I found at Gabes but this week I made one of my greatest Gabes shopping trips of all time. I was so excited when I walked in and started noticing red signs on certain racks that said Summer Clearance buy 1 get 1 50% off clearance items!

Clearance items! Everything on clearance is basically $10 or less already and then you can get every other item half off! I don’t remember ever seeing a sale like this at Gabes before. And I definitely took advantage of the sale!

This is what I got and spent:

1 XOXO Gown

1 Urban Outfitters Dress

1 Rachel and Chloe Maxi Dress

1 Dress Barn Floral Shirt

2 Express T-shirts

4 Necklaces


This gorgeous XOXO gown was only $7 on clearance! BUT. Because it was buy one get one half off it took the cost down to $3.50!!! That’s right 3 dollars and 50 cents for this gorgeous gown! I was about to check out after trying on everything else and I just had this weird feeling that I better check the clearance dress rack one more time and this gown caught my eye. I rushed back to the dressing room and it was a perfect fit! I have no idea when I will ever wear this but I knew I had to buy it just because! Really even if all the use I ever would get out of this is Halloween it would still be worth the $3.50. Hopefully I will have some kind of fancy event to wear it to soon 🙂

I also found this gown online being sold for $99 at 

Urban Outfitter dress $7. I just love this dress! At first glance it almost looks like camo but it is actually flowers and has buttons all the way down. It is super light and flowy so it’s perfect for summer!

Rachel and Chloe maxi dress $7. I love the detail at the top of this maxi dress! It is is really comfy too! I have been wanting to get a maxi dress and this one is just my style!

I got this hot pink Express T-shirt and the same one in tan for only $1.50 each! They were on sale for $2 and then the %50 off deal took it down to $3 for both! They are extremely soft and comfortable and I know I will be getting plenty of wear out of them!

Alexia Crawford Necklace $4. Alexia Crawford has some really cute stuff and lucky for me they carry it at Gabes alot! Here is another cute Alexia Crawford necklace I got at Gabes recently for $4.

Ny-Lon necklace $4. This necklace is really simple and can be worn with a ton of different outfits.

I got this Capelli New York necklace in blue and brown for only $2 They were $2 on clearance but the sale took them both down to $1. They look great separate or together!

To really take advantage of the deals going on I did two transactions the first one only had the 4 most expensive items and then the second one had all of the cheaper items so I could still get 50% off on the more expensive items and save even more!

Plus I live in PA so no sales tax on clothes! Wooo hoo! Definitely a big shopping success at Gabes!

3 necklaces and a pair of earrings for under $20.

I love jewelry and I love Gabriel Brothers! When I go I tend to head straight for the jewelry racks. I am always on the look out there because if you dig and sometimes untangle you can really find some awesome deals! About a year ago I found Express necklaces that where going for about $60 dollars each online for only $2! I bought at least 10! I think I just got really lucky that day!

Well this week I made a trip to Gabes and found some really cute jewelry for only $4 each!

Alexia Crawford Black and Gold Chain Necklace $4. 

New York and Company Gold Layered Necklace $4

XOXO Black Necklace With Chains $4

Laura Ford Earrings $4

These had an original $18 price tag on them so I saved $14 just on the earrings!

Huge Steal on Shorts at Guess

Last week I was in Louisiana and managed to swing over to a Guess Outlet just a few hours before I had to catch my flight. Well let’s just say I was happy I left some extra room in my suitcase just in case because I ended up needing it after what I found at Guess!

Pretty much all of the shorts in the store were only $15! Yes, you are reading that right $15 dollars! Not $51 which is about what most of them would have cost if I would have paid full price!

I got 9 pair.

I know 9 pair of shorts at one time sounds like a lot but I needed them!

Really I do tho, most of the shorts I have in my closet don’t fit any more. Plus a lot of these new ones are longer and have cute prints and will be great for when I start covering Steeler camp in a few weeks on those HOT HOT HOT days!

Full Price = $450

What I paid = $135 + High Louisiana clothing tax!! Grrr…I could have got another pair of shorts with that $15 dollar tax! (Just another plus of living in PA)

This was just one of those great deals that I had to take advantage of and was a fabulous way to restock my closet with new shorts from one of my all-time favorite brands!

XOXO — Abbey
