This week Nike Training Club brought fashion and sport – hello!? two of my absolute favorite things – together for a celebration of fitness and style at Soldier Field. Featuring celebrity NTC trainer Marie Purvis, viagra sale and a fashion show hosted by Brittney Payton (Walter Payton’s daughter) and Kristin Cavallari; the show featured pieces from Nike’s new Hyperwarm line and Holiday Collection. When someone says to me that fashion and sport are about to have babies, medical I say, pills how do I become the godmother of that child!?
For a night of fitness and fashion, my girlfriends and I got dressed in our Nike best and snuggled up in some winter wear to bear the 30 degree temps of Chicago. After 30 minutes of continuous leg work repetitions from celeb trainer Marie Purvis, we all ran indoors like we were fleeing from running bulls knowing that warmth….and wine, were on the other side. Let me just tell you, I’m having some serious issues walking up and down stairs, or just plain walking more or less……Marie Puvis did WURK on us! It’s never to early to start preparing for bikini season.
Once inside, and a glass of wine in hand, we patiently waited for the show to start. I was giddy like a little school girl to see what Nike had to offer for this season’s trends and fitness wear. So here is how my review started….”Um…did Nike really make a platform sneaker?!…I thought those died out with platform Sketchers”. Then, as the show progressed……”Gurl, I need me some of those Nike plats!!” For real, don’t judge; as the models kept walking by, they were sending subliminal messages….“Nike plats, Nike plats…”.
What I loved most about the show is that Nike put together creative pieces that are functional for both fitness and fashion; it was a new twist on the yoga pant and tank. Colors were mixed, patterns were mismatched and I was sold! My favorite piece of the night, aside from the Nike plat, had to be the Nike Pro Hyperwarm print pant; wear them to the gym, to the grocery store, underneath your ski pants….wherever you are, you will have the most dope pants on!
Here are my top five pieces from the event, including the poncho Kristin Cavallari was rocking! For a full recap on the event itself, check out Monica’s review posted yesterday by clicking here! Have a great weekend!
