Oh Claudia!

I always thought the coolest teenager ever was Claudia from The Babysitters Club. She was so fashion forward. Check "What Claudia Wore" here. Its a perfect homage to her creative genius. The author is not always complimentary of her taste, but it is pretty funny stuff to read if you were into TBC like I was- she includes lots of excerpts with her own running commentaries of them.



Now, after that, we are going to move on to my teenage era- the 90's. For shame.

Its very unfortunate that my teenage years were the years of flannel (per "My So Called Life.") I had no chance to let my hair down like Claudia did in the 80's.

That must be one of the most genious blogs ("what claudia wore")ever to be created by the hands of man. How ever did you find it? I can't wait to read the whole thing!

HA! Thanks for the walk down memory lane. I had forgotten all about those books, but I think I read every single one and even watched the movie that they made too. :)

Flannel shirts, doc martens, Gap overalls, timberland hiking boots (to go hiking where?)...I shudder at the thought of stuff we wore in H.S. At least we were covered. I look at what the teen girls are wearing now and it looks like they buy their clothes at baby gap. Everything is shrinking.
