Bowling Chic: Not an Oxymoron?

November 17 2004, 3:40 PM
Anyone want to offer a wannabe-stylish writer some fashion advice here? The scenario: Tonight I'm off to, among other stops, a birthday bash at the new Lucky Strike Lanes downtown. Invite states "city chic attire." Invite also states, "bowling shoes provided." The problem: What the hell am I going to wear? Without having the necessary $500 to throw down on this darling Dior bowling bag, I'm at a loss. What, exactly, is bowling chic? Ideas, comments, random insults, shoot 'em my way here.
