NICK APPEARANCES.....Los Angeles Times Google+ Hangout Talking Olympics Figure Skating Costumes

Skating Dish Pair Fab: Laura Davis, L.A. Times Deputy Mobile Editor and Nick Verreos--LA Times Google+ Hang Out On Air Discussing Figure Skating Costumes--L.A. Times offices

A couple of days ago, I was invited to give my "Nick Two Cents" on Figure Skating Costumes at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics at a very special L.A. Times Google+ Hang Out On Air. I didn't know what to expect in terms of what even a Google+ Hang Out On Air even was...but as always "I am game" and up for anything. As it turned it, I had a FABULOUS time and so much fun! PS: Love me some Google+ Hang Out On Air!

I spoke about Figure Skating Costumes/Fashion with the wonderful Laura Davis, L.A. Time Deputy Mobile Editor (she is ALL THINGS Social Media with the L.A. Times!). She's also a former figure skater herself! And for the segment, she even brought two of her costumes from "back in the day":

Stretch Velvet and Crystals: The one on the left--in case you are wondering was for a skate to "Miss Saigon", of course!

Vintage Nick: I even brought a top from my "Project Runway" Season 2 episode where we had to design for Olympian Sasha Cohen from 2005--yes, almost a decade ago!
