So here's the 411: Sometimes I wish it was still 1992. And that I had a ladder going up to my bedroom window so that my best friend Sam could use it to climb up into my room. My only concerns would be when I getting my driver's license, trying to convince my mom to let me wear what I want in school pictures and protesting against animal testing.
I may not be Clarissa Darling, but I sure loved Clarissa Explains it All. She made me wish I could have the guts to wear the crazy creative outfits she did. She was definitely ahead of her time. I mean when her Mom banned TV from her house she rigged her computer so she could watch TV on it.
Come on, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim, fess up! Which one of you YouTube founders was the Clarissa Fan? I'd also bet that she would most definitely put her photography and styling skills to work and be a blogger. She'd also spend her time hocking vintage finds on eBay to pay for her dream car and listening to music on Pandora.
Maybe it was the high socks or the Chuck Taylor Convers but the outfit sure made me feel as if I were channeling Clarissa.
Urban Cardigan, Kain Label silk blend tank, Converse Chuck Taylor's, American Apparel Shorts, and Forever 21 Knee highs.
