The Kishi Aesthetic Lives On, If Only In Nylon Editorials

How this look would be described by Ann M. Martin and/or a ghostwriter: "Claudia has a really unique, really acute sense of style. For example, today she was wearing a teal-and-white striped tank top under a plaid button down shirt and a lime green cardigan. She pinned a flowery brooch to the cardigan, and was sporting an armload of bangles. I think she'd painted some of them herself. She completed the look with floral, knee-length knickers, purple push-down socks, and extremely dibble lace-up heels. A long pink ribbon held back her jet black hair. The outfit would have looked weird on anyone else, but on Claudia it totally worked."

So true. Makes me wonder if Claudia changed her name and is editing mags like Nylon and the like...

First there's this entry, and then I randomly found this quiz on the internet:

I guess today is telling me that it is OK that I am wearing a camp shirt tied at the bottom and a little bow barrette.

You could have been Ann M. Martin's assistant! It sounded exactly like a quote, except that while she always claimed that Claudia could "do anything" with her jet-black hair, in reality the only thing she ever seemed to describer her doing with it was sweeping it to the side and fastening it with a novelty clip.
