Hi Danielle and Teresa!We love Kathleen right back. And then she sent us these photos and we loved her even more. We're talking CAPITAL LETTERS LOVE, people. Look!
I've been following your site for a few months now and wanted to let you know that you guys are the enablers I have been looking for all these years in my quest for TV fashion.
Having been raised on an orgy of television growing up, I was the kid who got in trouble in Sunday school for quoting Seinfeld episodes.
May 23, 2010 was a turning point in my life. When Jack Shepard closed his eyelid and went to TV heaven, I jumped headfirst out of my metaphorical helicopter into an ocean of denial. My life raft: WWEPW. You see, long before Glee, I had a closet full of of pencil skirts and Mary Janes. But I never had the courage to wear them out in the unkempt masses of America (I know, people wear flip flops to church! - Liz Lemon). Emma Pillsbury gave me the special guidance that I needed.
I'm a therapist in training and work with teenagers with mental illness issues. Thanks to your website, I now know that I can relate to my clients, because I have followed the Emma Pillsbury wardrobe with a devotion deemed nothing short of a DSM-IV diagnosis. About a month ago, my Glee-obsessed 57-year-old father (seriously, he leaves me voicemails of himself singing Poker Face and Push It), challenged me to channel EP's skirt-wielding power and go an entire year without wearing pants (or pantish items such as shorts). There is no clear objective and no tangible reward. Aside from sheer IYB-sized awesomeness.
This became THE NO PANTS CHALLENGE.
The other day my friends encouraged me to start a blog about my no pants travels, and I wanted to share it with you all. It is mainly going to be about my two great loves, mental health and television, but there is sure to be some Glee fashion along the way. I hope to inspire others to say NO to pants and YES to awesomeness.
I have amazing friends, a wonderful job, and a degree from Harvard, but my proudest accomplishments are the days those little packages come in the mail and out pop sweater clips and bow skirts galore. And I owe it all to your website.
I love you, WWEPW. There, I finally said it. And summer hiatus or no, this thing isn't over between us.
How fabulous is this girl? She even has Emma's hairstyle! And The No Pants Challenge is something we at WWEPW definitely endorse. Follow along with Kathleen on her quest to wear skirts for 365 days straight!
So, to recap:
1. THE NO PANTS CHALLENGE.
2. Kathleen has amazing style. And more importantly, she is doing amazing things for young people.
Thank you, Kathleen!
