#45: Kristy and the Baby Parade

"'Hi, Claudia!" said Jamie, flinging open the door about two seconds after Claud had rung the bell. 'I like your earrings!'

Claud, as usual, was wearing some pretty wild earrings that day. And, of course, they were coordinated with her outfit. Here's what she was wearing (I saw her later that day at our meeting): an oversized redblouse with black buttons, green leggings with white, tie-dyed streaks, and black high-top sneakers with all kinds of buckles and straps on them. (The laces were untied, which I guess is the cool way to wear them. I'd be tripping over them all day, but Claud can pull it off.)

Can you guess what her earrings were? Dangling watermelon slices. Get it? She was dressed like a watermelon, head to toe. And, of course, Jamie loves the effect."


This is the best idea ever. Seriously.

...As I remember, Stacy had some rockin' outfits, too, but Claudia won hands-down for out-there-ness.

Such a cool blogging idea!

Oh, I totally remember this watermelon outfit from all those years ago when I read about it in one of the Babysitter's Club book. Claudia was my fave, artsy, junk food addict, just like me :)

ahh, I am totally feeling the love. I came here to post (now that my semester is over) and was pleasantly surprised by all the comments.

Yeah, there are definitely outfits of Stacey's that rival Claud's ... even if just for the WTF factor. I'll have to keep my eye out for gems. Stacey would be more likely to wear leggings where one leg was red and other black, I think. THAT, was like, the epitome of New York City cool.

Keep an eye out, I've got a decent collection of books to archive and I'm always keeping an eye out at yard sales and thrift stores. This blog shall live on.

What I remember most about Stacey was her hair was a "fabulous, shaggy blonde mane." I always pictured her as a lion.

This is the outfit that always springs to mind when I think of Claudia. (Which is often, of course.)
