less than a week....

My best friend, Meghan, is getting married-- ON SUNDAY. And I finally have my bridesmaid ensemble completed. Well- almost. I JUST found the shoes (yesterday, yikes) and they haven't arrived yet. But (knock-on-wood) they are perfect.

I think magical is the only word to describe it.

the whitest sneakers award

This week in TV character makeovers, I bring you Pam Beesly, from the hit NBC show, "The Office".

Pam Beesly was a challenge. I wanted to keep the essence that makes Pam "Pam", but make her stylish, as well. And Pam is the opposite of stylish. Pam's looks are boring attempts at professional office wear. With a TJMaxx flair...

So, onto the challenge. How do I bring out the office professional/secretary look, without losing her famous "white keds"?

Readers, I bring you Pam "Office chic"... and a little funky.

Maybe with this stylish getup, it wouldn't have taken Pam three seasons to summon the courage to speak her true feelings :). I feel like I should do a "Lost" makeover for next week... in honor of the show's weekend series finale. Who should it be? Kate, Claire, or Sun? (Very few female characters on that show...)

Style Notebook- New Hat!

I got a new hat this weekend. I love it. It makes me feel famous. Like these ladies:

I think I'll live in it this summer. :)

a strange affinity for sweaters with animals on them

Today I bring you a new segment-- dress like your favorite TV show character-- only modernized and non-embarrassing. This combines two of my great loves: indulgent television shows and fashion.

The obvious character to attack first is a personal obsession of mine. Rachel Berry, from the hit Fox television show, "Glee". Now if you haven't heard of Rachel Berry, played by broadway starlet Lea Michele, that's one thing. But if you haven't at least heard of "Glee", pull your head out of the ground and Hulu it immediately.

Rachel's fashion choices have been described many times, but can basically be broken down into several descriptive phrases/words:

So without further ado, I give you "Rachel Berry Chic". AKA a Rachel outfit, minus the granny/toddler overdone quality.

belt: topshop, necklace: juicy couture, earrings: marc jacobs}

And with that, Rachel is hip! Finally, Santana and Brittany will stop picking on her and drawing on her yearbook photos... as if!

What TV character do you want to see styled next?
