Style Maven II (See Jane Find an Obscure Icon)

I’m making the “style maven” post into a series.  Here’s what I do: find an obscure (see: irrelevant) icon, and praise his/her style.  Basically I’ll highlight the quirks, the hits, the misses, and everything in between.  A few weeks ago it was Kelly Kapowski.  Today, it’s Stacey McGill, from the Babysitters Club.  Don’t remember her?  Here are a few Stacey catch-up facts:

  • Blond hair (Naturally)
  • Impeccable style (I wanted to be her)
  • Raised in NYC (Why I want to raise my kids there)
  • Juvenile diabetes (Yet, she craved those sweets)

I felt an instant connection with Stacey from the first BSC book I read (#3, The Truth About Stacey).  It’s as if we were twins (minus the whole raised in New York and diabetes thing); she was blond and obsessed with clothes and honestly, I was sold.  I know that Claudia was the toking fashion fiend, but her outfits were a little too crazy for me (plus she wasn’t good at school..sorry, can’t relate).  Please note that I only read Stacey’s books in the series, except when they were all checked out at the library.  I’m sorry, but Mary Anne was a snooze.

  1. Nice yellow windbreaker.  And is she wearing harem pants?
  2. Our girl’s outshining Kristy (on her own cover, no less) in her schoolgirl outfit.  That’s it–I’m getting loafers.
  3. Crop top and a sarong–so fashion forward for a 13 year old!
  4. Middle part and a loose pink sweater.  Yeah, looks like you probably are outgrowing the BSC, Stac.
  5. Wide leg pants and a vest…Kristy’s great idea looks pretty dull next to that.
  6. I’m pretty sure Anthropologie has that dress (and that pose in their catalog).
  7. Stacy says no to grunge and yes to pretty, even when hanging with the bad girls.

Yes, I’m biased and love Stacey McGill.  Who was your favorite BSC member?
