#82: Jessi and the Troublemaker

Breaking news: Jessi's hairstyle? A bun, adorned with a scrunchy. BREAKING NEWS, GUYS.

And I'm not even going to address the jeans.

"Stacey's sophistication shows up in the super-responsible and mature way in which she usually acts [book #83: Stacey vs. the BSC. Just sayin'.], but also in the way she dresses. We are pretty casually dressed at the BSC meetings, but even if Stacey is just wearing jeans like most of the rest of us, she goes one step further into cool [?]. For instance, today, when we were wearing sweaters and shirts [well, those both seem like logical choices, kid - do you want everyone else in leotards, too?], Stacey had on an oversized black sweater and a metallic gold t-shirt underneath. With her huge blue eyes and naturally dark lashes, and the shoulder length blonde hair that she keeps perfectly cut, she looked just like a model."

Jessi, what the hell: "But Claudia's sophistication and style are not big city. They're more artistic." The more I stare at this statement, the less sense it makes. Is it possible all the RL4 writing is rotting my brain? Also, why would 'big city' and 'artistic' be mutually exclusive?

Jessica Ramsey, you have so much to learn.
Which is logical, since you're 11.

"Claudia's style is unique. She doesn't often wear jeans, but she was wearing them today - only she'd cut patterns in the legs of the jeans (which were major faded) and was wearing leopard tights underneath so that they showed through. [I feel like we've all seen this on lookbook.nu.] She was wearing her Doc Martens with yellow shoelaces, and she'd used matching shoelaces to pull her hair back into a thick, long braid. Her earrings were a pair she made herself, out of little yellow feathers and black beads. And she was wearing a black and yellow striped flannel shirt buttoned up to her throat, with another pair of shoelaces made into a sort of bow tie."

BOW TIE.

(I hope season three of Gossip Girl brings us a scene in which Chuck Bass pulls open a drawer and it is just filled with, like, 100 bowties in perfect rows on some sort of custom-made bowtie organizer. They should be organized by color.)

I would LOVE a Chuck Bass bowtie drawer!

I never understood the t-shirt under sweater thing that Stacey has going on. Is the sweater an open-knit? Does it have a low-cut neckline? Is it a cardigan? The t-shirt seems a bit pointless.

I should know better than to question Claudia, but I remembering irrationally hating the idea of a shoelace bowtie. I think I was picturing a bolero tie. I'll never doubt again.

Wouldn't a shoelace bowtie be all floppy? Am I overthinking this? I really shouldn't question Claud's fashion sense, because while a shoelace bowtie on me or anyone else would look redonkulous, I'm sure it looked supercool on Claud.

Hey oldie.

I'm 25 too.

But I bet you have more wrinkles than me.

I don't even watch GG (yet) and I want the bowtie drawer.

Jessie needs to step off. Where the fuck does she get the nerve?

Also, Sebastein, is the wrinkles comment supposed to be, um, a come on? I don't get it.

God this is such an awesome blog. Love!

Ahh, a Chuck Bass drawer of bow ties. I love it!

Was it always necessary for them to point out that Stacey looked like a model? It was like the the only description they could provide for her.

Freaking Stacey and her freaking "i"s dotted with hearts. God, that always annoyed the crap outta me. Hehe.

Yeah, I hated the whole, "I could SO model but I want to do other things because I'm smart, too!" I did love the book where she tries to model as a summer job (Stacey and the Bad Girls) and the agency ppl are like, uh...NO.

Haha, Claudia's outfit almost sounded cool, but who buttoned a flannel shirt all the way! Sheesh...i was expecting her to have a leopard in one ear and its prey in the other!

Why is Jessi wearing my Mom's jeans?

Tights under ripped-up, faded jeans= Axl Rose wannabe.

I CAN'T--THIS JUST--okay, my caps was on by accident but I think I need to leave it there. I just found your blog and I am speechless at the pure genius. Also I feel like I'm 11 years old again.

Awesome.
