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've always been a Dawn girl. I bet I could find some California Casual clothes there...

by amylolique.faciens on 2:53 PM. #

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

by Lauren on 2:53 PM. #

Abby Stevenson! Kidding, Claudia, of course!

by -N on 2:54 PM. #

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.

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

Kristy, always.

by A. on 3:06 PM. #

I'm gonna say...Claudia, as cliche as it is. Me and my homegirl Kishi are tight. Although I am rather partial to Mary-Anne.

by Erin on 3:07 PM. #

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

by Parinita on 3:07 PM. #

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!

by Emily on 3:11 PM. #

When I was younger, it was Mallory (gross), but now I would have to say... Kristy.

by sophia on 3:13 PM. #

I always loved me some Claudia. Junk food, fashion, and Nancy Drew? Yes please. I am a bit better at spelling though...

by Ashley on 3:13 PM. #

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

by Emily on 3:17 PM. #

Claudia all the way. I never bought her as the "not school-smart" type either!

by Gabriela on 3:17 PM. #

i heart stacey :) and your blog!

by J. Lee on 3:52 PM. #

Claudia-- for the fashion alone.

by Chubby Piggy: on 3:53 PM. #

I once wore a day-glo orange (think Hunting gear) long sleeve shirt with a black plaid jumper because I thought it was something Claudia would wear--so I guess she is my favorite!

Stacy <3 Always, even when she was bad and quit the BSC for her cool shoplifting friends.

by k r i s t e n ! on 4:06 PM. #

Mary Anne is my favorite BSC-er, definitely. So much so that my LJ screen name is imamaryanne.

Would love to enter!


by nikki on 4:08 PM. #

It was definitely Stacey until Shannon came along.

by Shannon SVH on 4:14 PM. #

Forgot to add my email address!

by Shannon SVH on 4:15 PM. #

Claudia!! She was like my superhero via mad fashion experiments. Also, junk food stashes. <3

by L on 4:15 PM. #

Stacey! I always wanted a fluffy perm.

by slipbananapeel on 4:18 PM. #

Stacey - always. I think when I was younger it was (embarrassingly) the hearts over the "i's."

Mary-Anne, definitely. sheena louise at gmail dot com.

by Sheena Louise on 4:36 PM. #

Claudia was always my favorite!

by jocelyn on 4:38 PM. #

Mallory. Who wouldnt want bushy red hair and 8 siblings to babysit?

But really probably Staci. The fabulous clothes, blonde permed hair, and access to NYC was dream as a kid.

by Adriana on 4:40 PM. #

Totally Claudia!


by Rachel on 4:41 PM. #

sounds kind of like sucking up, seeing as how this blog is 'what claudia wore,' but CLAUDIA KISHIIIIIII and her love for crazy accessories!

by Aurora on 5:04 PM. #

I related to Kristy the most - but I secretly wanted to dress like Claudia!!

Stacey was always my favorite...Claudia was a close second, but only because she couldn't spell.

by meliasaurus on 5:14 PM. #

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!

by forest walking on 5:16 PM. #

Absolutely Claudia!

by Le Chan on 5:17 PM. #

Claudia for sure!

by Megan Hahn on 5:28 PM. #

Claudia, because I've always wanted to be as effortlessly fashion-forward as she is.

by M. E. Mackey on 5:33 PM. #

DAWN! I always thought I loved Stacey, but real talk, Dawn's hippie diet is what pushes her over the edge and makes her my BSC BFF

I'm more of a Mary Anne myself, but my favorite has always been Claudia! I can only dream of being as awesome as she is.

by Tracy on 5:46 PM. #

back in my BSC heyday i was definitely a mary anne girl, which probably explains my obsession with claudia. that and that i, too, can't spell.

by anna on 5:50 PM. #

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...

by B on 5:52 PM. #

Jessie all the way. The series gave her short shrift and I bet she was a pretty rad girl once you got to know her.

by Adrienne Aldredge on 5:52 PM. #

I was all about Mary Anne when I was little, but now I think I'd be more into Dawn.

I've been a Claudia fan from day one. When I was eight, I used to write down all of Claud's outfits and try to recreate them with my own clothes and puffy paint. Claudia's still remains my fav BSC member! = )

I love your blog!

I was always a Claudia girl, m'self.

by theshe on 6:05 PM. #

Claudia of course!

Oh no, I'm conflicted! Claudia's got the sweetest style, obviously, but I love Mary Anne for being such an awesome passive-aggressive basketcase.

I always wanted to be Claudia! But Dawn comes in a close second, despite how much everyone else seems to dislike her. I liked how she went out and did activist things, even if she was brat about it.

by Tintin on 6:39 PM. #

a friend told me about this blog, and I spent an entire evening reading the archives. you are fantastic for bringing back the books that took up so much of my youth.

i always loved claudia. that butterfly self portrait was an inspiration. i also remember being pleased about the ridiculous things that happened to her, like the jewel that got hidden in her pumpkin purse!

by Susan on 6:54 PM. #

I loved Stacey. She was sophisticated and rocked a perm, something I failed miserably at on both counts.

by Alison on 6:55 PM. #

i always admired claudia's candy hiding skills, we never got candy so i loved her! and her side pony. word!

I love Stacey because of the time she totally sent a "fuck you" to her diabetes by eating all those Christmas cookies. I mean, she ended up in the hospital, but whatever. She's New York, okay?

by baileykathryn on 7:33 PM. #

Am I the only one who had Mallory as a favorite? Heck, I loved horses and writing bad stories. She was reassuringly nondescript!

She's the reason I went into fashion.

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.

Oooh, it used to be Dawn. I even entered a contest once, where I had to write an essay about which BSC member I was most like, and I picked her.

Now I think I'm more like Mary Anne.

my fave's mary anne, though i would be embarrassed to have admitted that when i was younger.

Totally Claudia! Always has been, always will be. When I was younger though, I went to a book signing with Ann M. Martin. When I got up to her, I was so nervous that when she asked me, I said Kristy, and I've always regretted it. This makes up for it! lol

by Eileen on 9:52 PM. #

Kristy Thomas! We share a first name and have an intense concept of loyalty. I could never let myself like Dawn or Abby because I was too protective of Kristy.

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.

ms [dot] cellophane [at] gmail [dot] com

by Kat on 11:17 PM. #

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.

by Desi on 11:59 PM. #

by Under Urooba's Umbrella! on 5:37 AM. #

mary anne! hello! :)

by Editor on 5:49 AM. #

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.

by Syd on 6:47 AM. #

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.

by SophisticatedBrew on 6:55 AM. #

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.

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!

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.

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

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!
