Look Of The Week: The OC
California here we come . . .
Ooohh I wish, but my travels are finally over and I’m back. And although I didn't post anything while I was away I did keep reading your kind comments and visiting my favorite fashion blogs. Every time I get back from a summer trip I always feel like the season has ended already and it's time to pull my fall looks out of the closet. So to keep the summer vibe alive I've been watching The OC and do I miss it; even the later episodes with Taylor and Marissa's sister. Actually the only person that I do not miss (and the cause I almost stopped watching altogether) is Johnny, gosh he was annoying. Is it wrong that I cheered when he went over that cliff?
Anyway the show was really fashion oriented and the style was California Chic at its best. Some sartorial highlights were the funky flats Marissa had to wear so she wouldn’t tower over the rest of cast, the gargantuan Chanel tote she used as a backpack for school in the early seasons and Summer's colorful outfits that always were perfect for her namesake season.
When not dazzling with gorgeous gowns for all of the parties that they attended (personal favorites are the dress Marissa wore to Caleb's Christmas party in the first season and her Chanel prom dress), Coop and Summ knew that you need nothing more than an attractive top, long necklaces and a statement bag to make simple jeans look Newport Beach-ready.
