P.S. Is it just me or does this American Apparel model look like Heidi Montag?

In masks outrageous and austere...

Masks...they are my current obsession. Intricate, bizarre, endearing. I especially love the Chloe images.

To all the hollowed out books we pretended to read..

Up until I typed "Claudia Kishi" into Google, I thought I was the only one who would skim the first telltale chapter of each Babysitter's Club book, awaiting with bated breath the next outfit du jour. I liked to think of myself as Claudia's sista from anothah mistah  - a white grrl counterpart to her funky, no holds-barred, pre-Harajuku amazingness. I hated math, I loved drawing and candy and kooky accessories - besties 4evs, right?


There are countless who covet Claudia! I should have known better than to think I was the only one. To think that she and I lived in our own world of friendship and Bedazzlers and leggings and Nancy Drew - to think these things is to live in a world of delusions, a world that probably meant I should have gotten out more

Regardless, Claudia Kishi was a style icon, an inspiration, and one bad ass chick. Her outfit blurbs of yesteryear paved the way for the fashion blogs of today - in fact her sheer awesomeocity still lives on in a too clever for words blog known as What Claudia Wore, reminding us that yes, Stoneybrook, there is a Claudia all of us. 

Vest over oversized men's shirt?

Tuxedo? 'Nuff said.

The Claudia doll I most definitely did own.

Me, channeling Claud(ia)
