This week, "us" consists of three judges:
Rachel of GleeHab.com, who is officially a permanent judge on Fashion Challenge! Think of her as WWEPW's Michael Kors, but without all the bronzer.
To keep up with GleeHab.com's latest, follow Rachel on Twitter!
And our featured judge - GleekReport.com!
Of all the Glee sites out there, GleekReport is one of the originals. It was the very first Glee website I started reading, and it quickly went to the top of my favorites list for the sheer reason that it's so well-written. I loved that I didn't have to sift through OMGPONIES!!!111!! after every sentence! I'm old. These things please me.
There's something on GleekReport to satisfy every Glee fan, from spoilers to reviews to interviews. Be sure to follow on Twitter and become a Facebook fan as well!
On to the Challenge!
We three judges spent a long time moaning and groaning about having to narrow down the list and shoving entire chocolate bars in our faces to mute the pain. Ok, so maybe we didn't do that last thing but it was really hard, you guys! We all shared these three looks among our lists of favorites:
Insane Yellow Blouse- Inspired by Kate Spade and Emma Pillsbury by NikkiCogg featuring Caparros shoes
Nikki writes the blog Loving Every Second, which I love. I think that Nikki should give me her dogs because I picked her look as one of my favorites. It's only fair.
I am a sucker for yellow, gray, and black. It must have something to do with all the hours I spent staring at that Men At Work album cover in my teens, but that color scheme just makes me happy. I love that she added Chanel #5 as the fragrance for this outfit. Emma would be a classic perfume kind of girl, for sure.
Amy J's Look
Amy said, "With a blouse like that, you gotta keep the look simple!" and we couldn't agree more! I loved this earthy color scheme, too - it really caught my eye because it was so unexpected. I love daring color combinations like this canary yellow with the soft pumpkin. Also those shoes are made out of WOW.
Now here's something new! Two of the looks were so different than anything we've ever seen before on WWEPW's Fashion Challenges, I need to give them a special shout-out. Honorable mention goes to these two looks for pushing the challenge to new heights!
Skinny jeans + cropped jacket + Insane Yellow Blouse + LOTS OF BOWS = WIN.
Amy B's Look
Amy was excited to use her favorite Anthro sweater in this look, and I think it's fabulous with the blouse and jeans. Also, HI, the picnic scene including the Jane Austen book is the perfect place for a date where Will coaxes Emma into getting over her issues with sitting on the ground.
Hooray for Meg and Amy for creating such unique looks!
And now, the rest of the awesomeness!
I'm a teacher, I'm drawn to primary colors!
Dina creates absolutely fantabulous outfits on Polyvore, but the best part is that she often follows up with photos of the outfits in real life on her blog! It's so fantastic! Go check her out at My Superfluities - you will become a regular reader after just one visit, I promise!
GleekReport especially liked the Clorox Wipes!
The coat is perfection!
Andley's entries are always so much fun! I absolutely must have that clock for my house.
I know we always see Emma polishing orchids, but I really see her as more of a daffodil person! Nice touch, Jessica! (And yes, I am feeling better, you are so sweet to ask! Thank you!)
Sweet Archivia's Look
Everyone. I have found my next purse. I love the vintage-y feel of this whole look! Be sure to visit Sweet Archivia at her blog, with the greatest tagline of all time - Because Life Just Isn't As Sweet Without Fashion - fabulous!
Too. Many. Pretty. Things. Must. Sit. Down. And. Rest.
Remember my friend Jen who created The Emma Beret? She created this look! I'm proud to say I contributed to yet another online addiction for Jen by introducing her to Polyvore, especially because she came up with this great look. The plaid skirt with that sweater is one of my favorite combinations, because I always admire people who can put together non-matchy items and make them look good. I just got the greatest corkscrew scarf from Jen's Etsy shop - Mimi & Boo. She's got a beautiful blue one for sale there right now, so check it out!
I really really really want a polka-dot skirt. Actually, THAT polka-dot skirt.
Tiffany Rose's Look
As soon as I saw this look, I started to smile, and I haven't stopped since. The colors are so bright and cheery!
Another unexpected color scheme that totally works!
Rachel is the author of another one of my favorite blogs, Shoes and Sewing. You will not believe what this woman can make. I want to move in with her for about two weeks and have her go all Karate Kid on me with the sewing machine. Pins On! Pins Off! Thread the Needle! Pump the Foot Pedal! Rachel is seriously AWESOME.
Why, yes, you guys CAN get me that skirt for my birthday, thanks so much for asking!
How clever is this? I love both of these looks so much that I would have to change skirts and shoes every half-hour. I wouldn't want to damage one outfit's self-esteem by favoring the other.
Look at the flower buttons on that jacket! LOOK AT THEM!
That clutch is so gorgeous it should have its own talk show.
Again with my favorite color scheme. LOVE the harlequin sweater with that skirt. A brilliant pairing!
The colors of this look are so Emma! Love everything about this retro-modern feel. Julliana's website - Troy and Jules is a veritable treasure trove of amazing finds! I am so glad she entered this look because it brought me to her site! She's also an accomplished seamstress so I'm hoping eventually all of these great people who read WWEPW will somehow pass their talents to me through fiberoptic technology. Please?
WHEW! I'm exhausted! How about all the great looks this week?!? Which were your favorites? Share the love in the comments!
Congratulations again to Nikki, Katia, and Amy J! And thanks to Meg and Amy B for bringing something new and different to the table!
And a HUGE thank you to GleeHab and GleekReport for judging this week's challenge!
