Sweaterpants: So In Right Now
Lovers of sweaters, crazy prints, and cozy layers should check out Elizabeth Spiridakis' Style Guide for H&M. I was really digging the whole feature, but one look was throwing me off. It nagged at me: where have I encountered this concept before? It's so familiar.

Oh. Right.

"'For heaven's sake. Why are you wearing your sweater on your legs?' I asked. Karen had put each of her feet through a sleeve of her sweater and was now struggling to hold the bottom of the sweater around her waist.

'It's a new style,' Karen replied. 'Sweater-pants.' She hobbled over to my desk. 'Can you button me up the back, please?'

'I have a feeling,' I said as I fastened the buttons, 'that this isn't what Nannie had in mind when she knitted this sweater for you.'"

KAREN!

This seriously made my day.

I REMEMBER KAREN!

I used to LOVE the BSC. Your blog is amazing. I had to stop reading it at work during my internship because I kept snorting with laughter.

Also, you kind of inspired me to start my own blog; check it out if you like:

Fantastic! I remember after reading that trying out sweater pants myself, just to see if it was actually possible. It was not a good look.

Is it just me, or do those sweater pants look really comfortable?

Wouldn't the neck hole be an issue? Am I missing something here?

I was going to post that Skants link last night and my computer died! I am enormously glad someone else did even if regretsy is a festering pile of superiority wank. :D Skants are the bessssst

YESSSS I was just thinking about the Regretsy Skants contest!

Oh yes, Lobster Clocks for you ^_^

KAREN! Who knew she would grow up so stylishly, especially since she was such a freakin' know-it-all brat?
Sigh. This seriously made my day. :)

by Carolynne Keenan on 7:39 AM. #

Ahah, Regretsy meets BSC. Not surprising, somehow! Claudia would definitely have a store on Etsy, making odd clothing and misspelling her descriptions.

(Possibly my reaction to those sweaterpants: WHAT. GOD OH NO)

HA! God how I hated that nosy little two two Karen.

I just discovered your blog and it just might be my favorite thing ever. When I got a job at Scholastic and figured out that I could order any book I wanted, the first one I ordered was a copy of the very last BSC Friends Forever (Graduation Day).

I feel i really need to immerse myself in the babysitters little sister series... never got into it sadly... am I well and truly missing out?

by Susie Bubble on 4:30 PM. #

Not really. The Little Sister series is basically a worse-written, less interesting version of the original. It's not too bad, though :)

by Anneliese on 10:21 PM. #

I'm pretty sure the worst part about Karen AND her book series was that she and her friends NEVER USED CONTRACTIONS!! There's no reasonable explanation for this at all...

by Terri on 11:50 PM. #

I love this blog! Write more posts!

by Melissa on 5:53 PM. #

Hahahaha, this blog is so addicting! I love it!

by Michelle on 12:40 AM. #

I saw this and just had to send it to you, because I am in love with your blog. I was taking the Judy Blume quiz because I'm hip like that (I basically feel about Tiger Eyes, Deenie and Just As Long As We're Together the way you do about BSC) and found this one:

This had me laughing out loud. Sweater pants are CRAZY!

by Mugdha on 2:43 AM. #

I saw some of these at H&M - and thought, "i'm not ready for that yet" but I'm slowly coming around. Thinking of thrifting some and seeing how I like it...
