Reminds me of Holly Hobbie


OMG that's too close to be coincidence!

Every time I see these uniforms, I can't help but think of Holly Hobbie, not a cool look!

Seriously, they could have ANY look and this is what they chose??

Yep, Depression Era or Little House on the Prairie, either way it exudes poverty.

Which is really not a theme they should be promoting. 

From Burton's website:

"To design the uniform for the 2014 Sochi Games, Burton once again turned to America’s heritage for inspiration. And nothing represents Americana more than handcrafted patchwork quilts and the American flag, which are both at the heart of the 2014 uniform. After a long hunt, Burton designers found the perfect vintage quilt at an antique fair."

Oy. I prefer the unsubtle red white and blue to this.
