Children’s Literature, Fashion-Spread Style

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Last week I did a rundown of the probable post-series lives of the ladies of the Babysitter’s Club.  Today, in honor of the fabulous style I am anticipating seeing at Fuck the Recession tonight, I thought I would, like an innovative liberal arts professor, meld fashion and literary theory and try to imagine what some of our favorite heroines from youth-directed literature  would be wearing this fall!

Harriet the Spy

Turquoise Valentino carries her notebook, pencils and probably her Xanax too, as she skulks around Manhattan scribbling about everything she sees.

Pretty much one of the best children’s books ever and a personal style primer for me, I think Eloise today would still be living in the Plaza but with a little bit of downtown flava!

Some decidedly adult Parisian chic for the girl in the old house covered with vines…

Ramona Quimby
The most interesting girl on Kilckitat Street has probably moved to Seattle by now, but doubtlessly held on to some of her earthy, Oregon style. Behold!

Pippi Longstocking

Logic? Nope. Reason? None here! But somehow on Pippi it all works, to fabulous effect. Trust me, it just does.
