#30: Mary Anne and the Great Romance

"She always wears the trendiest outfits. For instance, at our last meeting she was wearing layers - a shocking-pink tunic over a white shirt with pink and yellow umbrellas printed on it. Over the tunic was a wide, low-slung yellow belt with a pink plastic buckle. The shirt, but not the tunic, was tucked into a pair of black knickers, and below the knickers were yellow stockings.

Then there's her hair. Claud's hair is something else. Her family is Japanese-American, and Claud has this shiny, black hair. But her hair isn't just shiny and dark, it's long. And Claud can find a million ways to wear it. At that last meeting, she had divided it into five braids and had woven pink and yellow ribbons into the braids."

I WANT to understand. I really do. But I don't. Five braids? Like I've said (though maybe not here) the illustrators for the BSC always let me down so much. I needed realistic interpretations of Claudia style!

Meanwhile, they would give me baggy mom jeans that were rolled up past the girls' ankles. On every single cover. It's like a conspiracy or something - BSCers were not allowed to wear jeans that were not unflatteringly puffy and cuffed.

Do you think Martin (or her ghostwriters) just took a bunch of peyote, went on a vision quest, wrote down a bunch of outfit ideas, and then drew from that list for the rest of the time?

Kim, I think you should try to recreate one of the Claudia outfits on yourself and have it as your profile picture.
