Win a $100 Shopbop giftcard courtesy of Shopbop & Juicy Couture

The folks over at Shopbop, in collaboration with Juicy Couture (check out their velour collection - Stacey McGill AND Kristy Thomas approved), want to give away a $100 Shopbop giftcard to one lucky What Claudia Wore reader. Shopbop has an awesome collection of designers (helpful link for the underemployed: shop the sale section by designer) and I doubt you'll have any trouble finding something dibbly fresh.

As a starting point, here's a Claudia-approved statement necklace I found in Juicy Couture's on sale offerings. I bet it would look slammin' with a pair of silver lamé bicycle shorts, one of Mr. Kishi's button-downs, and those Jeffrey Campbell clog booties I love so much.

How to enter:
1. Leave a comment with your e-mail address and favorite BSC member.
2. Cross your fingers and wait patiently. Maybe pass the time by throwing a slumber party for six of your closest friends, complete with pizza, pigtails, and pillow fights.

When I was younger, it was totally Mary Anne. Now I'm feeling more like Staci. I'm not sure what that says about me. But I do like clothes...

I always had solidarity with my fellow denim-lovin' California Girl Dawn, even though I share a name down to the letter with Kristy.

I was always a Dawn fan, though not because of the wardrobe...

Claudia was my favorite by far. Junk food AND ridiculous clothes?? We would have totes been bffs.

Abby Stevenson! Kidding, Claudia, of course!

Mary Anne was my favorite. When I was 10, my family moved and my mother asked what I wanted the colors of my bedroom and the upstairs bathroom to be. I asked for pink and white, just like Mary Anne.

Well, first it was Claudia, briefly trumped by Abby (I thought having a twin was the coolest) but now back to Claudia.

First time posting a comment here, but I love this blog so much. As a childhood fan of the BSC, I love all the references and fashion bits (those were my favorite parts too). My favorite members were Claudia (of course) and Dawn (she was from Cali like me!). And my email address is zoey.giesberg@gmail.com

It's been Claudia from day one.

It used to be Kristy before Abby came sneezing in. I used to find the allergies and curly hair absolutely fascinating.

I always loved Claudia. I would skim through the first few pages to get to the descriptions of her outfit and then attempted to replicate them in my own futile pre-teen way!

Mallory. She was entertaining. What would the BSC be without their frizzy, spazz-girl, cRaZy, freckly, glasses-wearing 11 year old?!

Oh, Claudia. You and your almond-shaped eyes and penchant for unhealthy snacks. I always felt akin to Mary Anne for some reason, but secretly wanted to be more like Claudia. Today, my love for fearless fashion overturns my sentiments towards sweet MA, and I choose Claudia!

Well, my faves were Stacey & Dawn. I was obsessed. And surprise surprise I grew up to be hybrid of both. A bit of a glam hippie.

But I totally did the Claudia thing of stashing candy all over my room. I thought I was so cool...

stacy! i was a spelling snob and couldn't have liked claudia best. i am from california, and thought dawn's eating habits were weird. (i didn't understand the health food stereotype until i moved to the east coast!) mallory and jessie were too young, kristy too tomboy, mary anne too nerdy. yes, stacy was my chic heroine.

by kelly on 7:57 PM. #

Claudia was always my favorite, and I'm not just saying that because I want to win! I too dressed like a crazy person for most of my childhood, so I related to her and her mismatched patterns and homemade jewelry.

by Angie on 11:14 PM. #

Ooh, contests! I love contests!

My favourite baby-sitter now is Stacey (because she's the most interesting). Mary Anne used to be my favourite when I was a kid, though, because we looked kind of similar, dressed in kind of the same way, and were both shy.

Claudia, natch! OK, so sometimes I considered changing teams and favoring Dawn because of her environmentalism and California Casual boho attitude. But her style didn't live up to the 'tude and she just couldn't compare to a character who MADE HER OWN jewelry and accessories and clearly led a totally independent and mature lifestyle, conducting personal calls and business meetings from her bedroom! Oh alright, the bottom line is that all that is well and good, but really the hidden candy sealed the deal. I wasn't allowed access to it either back when the books were originally published and Claudia's ability to not only acquire, but maintain a stock in her totally private bedroom (again, ever-independent and mature!) made her nothing short of a role-model.

by Magnus on 11:44 PM. #

Definitely Kristy; her spunk makes up for her lack of fashion sense. Jessi is a close second.

Hey-ya! My e-mail is neverenoughcoffee (at) gmail (dot) com. Claudia was of course my favorite! She even had me making jewelry out of random items. Love.

My favorite was always Mary Anne.

Absolutely Stacy, even if she was a mini Mean Girl. Actually, probably because she was a mini Mean Girl.

Stacey McGill, always and forever. It's my nom de plume...

I was always M.A.!
I'm a dreamboat secretary, although I'd adopt Stacy's handwriting anyday.
Before BSC, I never knew hearts were even LEGAL in handwriting!!

I have to say it was probably Stacey because I am from New York, and so was she. Also, when her parents were getting divorced, she put on a wooden necklace with fruit on it, which struck me as sort of cool, at the time.

I'd love to say Mallory out of pity for the underdog, but alas, it was totally Dawn. Cool, casual, laid-back, yet responsible. ME = DAWN.

I used to like Dawn, but I'm totally a Claudia girl now - after rereading I can fully appreciate the crazyness of what she wore.

I always said it was a tie between Stacey and Claudia. But I related more to Dawn because we were both from CA and I even dressed up as Dawn for Halloween one year.

Claudia is the only one who never pisses me off, but I quite like Abby too.

Mary Anne. She was quiet and studious, but managed to not be boring.

Hmm... when I was younger it was a tie between Stacey and Dawn. A hybrid for the two. I never really realized Claudia's fashion sense until reading this blog!! LOVE IT!

DAWN! Mostly for the chambray ensembles. At the end of the day, I really think I love Ann M Martin and her dogs the best! I'd like to see that super special!

by Emily on 9:57 AM. #

Claudia for President! Candy and safety pin necklaces for everyone!

I have always loved Stacey. She had awesome clothes, a sweet perm, and was a Mathlete.

Abby replaced Staci as my favorite the moment she arrived.

I always loved Stacey - she had the boy-crazy stories with swoony Toby, Sam, and Robert, the awesome clothes, and the New York background I always dreamed about.

I love Claudia a lot more now, but it always annoyed me when they called her "exotic" looking, especially since I'm Asian myself. Thanks for the Othering, AMM.

What can I say, I really liked Mary-Anne. Probably because I identified with her...because I was lame.

Clearly Claudia!! Native American inspired feather earrings, tuxedo pants, backward suspenders and all!!

by SAndy on 11:00 AM. #

I think when I was younger I loved Dawn. But now I'm more into Mary Anne and of course, our girl Claudia.

by Erin on 11:01 AM. #

Kristy's bad-assed-ness from the first book sold her to me before anyone else was introduced. Though I did sort of want Dawn's hair and secret tunnel.

Claudia forever. I've always been the crazy/artistic hot mess- with a penchant for junk food and fashion.

Claudia of course! She even wore cool outfits when she had a broken leg!
