Business Casual Superstar #503: Inspired by Taylor Swift

LOOSELY inspired, that is. So the thing with Taylor Swift is that now that she’s dating Conor Kennedy or whatever (he’s 18, she’s 22, she’s working her schedule around his winter break). And what I’m kind of hung up on … has anyone else noticed that all of a sudden she’s really pulling a Jackie […]

Business Casual Superstar #501: Snag the awesome pumps First Lady Michelle Obama wore during the 2012 DNC!

Yup, you heard me right. When Obama gave his first State of the Union address, I did a BCS post about Michelle Obama’s outfit. I wouldn’t click it; it’s not that great a post. I stuck to the general look of the outfit, rather than the style, because online retailers were NOT cooperating with me […]

Business Casual Superstar #496: Inspired by Golden Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas, 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know how awesome Gabby Douglas is. Or, unless you’re NBC (and others), whose coverage  of  her  is  and  has been  a  disgrace. (Click those links.) And don’t even get me started on Bob Costas, who had the audacity to say: “Gabby is the first African American woman […]

Business Casual Superstar #487: A Classic Sweaterdress Outfit Inspired By Emma Stone

Sweaterdresses are awesome. They make for a great, simple, comfortable look that is absolutely perfect for this time of year. Plus, a sweaterdress with a nice bag and nice shoes and not much else makes a great statement. That’s what I had in mind for today’s look, which is inspired by Emma Stone. And here […]

Business Casual Superstar #483: Halloween Costume: Luigi (Super Mario Brothers)

Yep. Today, I’m comin’ atcha with a Luigi costume. For girls! (I’ll get to the boys’ version tomorrow, hopefully.) Trust me when I say that this is awesome, you guys. I was in my brother’s room, poking around, as is my way (I was actually looking for the iHome that he borrowed from me), and […]

Business Casual Superstar #482: Halloween Costume: Martha Jones (Frema Agyeman, Doctor Who)

My brother and I argued about this one, you guys. He originally suggested a Patrick Jane (“The Mentalist”) costume, but that turned out to be wildly expensive, and I couldn’t make it work. When I announced that I was doing a Martha Jones costume instead, he argued that a Martha Jones costume wasn’t distinctive enough […]

Business Casual Superstar #481: Halloween Costume: Meg Griffin (Mila Kunis, Family Guy)

Yesterday, I did Lois Griffin, the matriarch of the Griffin clan on “Family Guy.” Today, I’m back with her daughter, Meg, voiced by Mila Kunis, who I absolutely adore. (Mila, that is. Not Meg. Although Meg’s pretty hilarious.) One of the things I love about Mila is that even though she’s, what, a B+ actress […]

Business Casual Superstar #480: Halloween Costume: Lois Griffin (Family Guy)

I know it makes me a terrible feminist, and a terrible POC, and a terrible supporter of Palestine, but I do enjoy me some “Family Guy.” Come on, you have to give Seth MacFarlane some credit for basically selling Fox the SAME SHOW (Family Guy, American Dad, the Cleveland Show) three times. Although the Cleveland […]

Business Casual Superstar #479: Halloween Costume: Mister Robinson (Eddie Murphy, Saturday Night Live)

The other day, I put together an outfit inspired by Mister Fred Rogers of Neighborhood fame. He knows how to break-dance, you guys. It had to be done. But today I’m here with Eddie Murphy’s answer to Mister Rogers: Mister Robinson. If you’re an SNL fan, you know all about Mister Robinson. Or maybe you […]

Business Casual Superstar #478: Halloween Costume: Mister Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers’s Neighborhood)

I loved Mister Rogers when I was little. We all did. All of us except Andy, who has informed me that even as a little boy, he would have no truck with cardigan-wearing elderly gentlemen that wanted him to join them on a trip to their magical kingdoms. He explained it to me when I […]
