Legally Blonde: So Much Better
"Seeing my name up on that list: That beats the first time that we kissed!" The Jacket I LOVE this jacket. I WANT this jacket. Ugh! The jacket is light wash denim, cropped--just at the waist, no shorter or longer--and has 3/4 sleeves. There are five largish silver buttons down the front, and has four pockets: two tabbed ones right over the breast that look like they're mostly for decoration, and two underneath the other pockets. I don't know how to describe them, but they're shaped more like hoodie pockets. Her left pocket (is LBB left-handed?) is where she keeps her cell phone (Who else can I tell? Oh wait--where's my cell? Mom will fall on the floor... HEY MOM!)--you can see the tip of it poking out. And take this from me: YOU CANNOT FIND A JACKET LIKE THIS ANYWHERE. (But if you do, let me know!). Not exactly like it. The best I found was a dark wash. Anyways, that's the jacket. The Cami This is one of the things that changed when Bailey came onto the scene. However, the only good pictures of the original undershirt are when Bailey and Autumn wore it on the finale show. (And this is the same as the one LBB wore.) The cami is some kind of lavender knit with pink lace at the neck. You can see the zig zag patterns sort of in the above image, and the following ones: and finally, Bailey's cami is a wrap-around lavendar knit with darker purple ties, and she wears it over a light pink button-up blouse. The Skirt "At Harvard... they wear traditional menswear fabrics; they wear houndstooth and pinstripe and chalkstripe, so we wanted her to have a skirt that was houndstooth, but Elle-ised. So, it's pink, and it's big, and it looks like Elle." --Gregg Barnes, on THE AMAHZING SKIRT. What do we know? It is flared (maybe with godets, but maybe not: I can't find a seam ANYWHERE, but how do you get this kind of flare without the help of godets? The pattern is an oversized magenta houndstooth on a pale pink background. Bailey's version (rumoured to be a reject from the SF production brought back to save a buck or two making a new one) is a ghastly magenta on lavendar. I hate it... I was hoping it was just bad lighting in the promo shots, but youtube videos confirm the lavendar tint.
