Wheeee! This was so much fun! Aside from the fantastic looks, I absolutely loved how passionate so many of you were about Emma going to the beach. The pale skin, the distaste for germs, the sand everywhere - all ingredients in a recipe for a pure Emma disaster!
Kicking this awesome challenge off is the person who inspired it! Red-and-white polka dots are ALWAYS okay as far as I'm concerned, and especially so when it comes to swimwear.
A little light reading...
AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA! How big do you think Emma's eyes would get while reading Sh*t My Dad Says?!?
Amy B's Look
Amy says, "A neatfreak nightmare. Sand.? Bugs? Sitting on lawn chairs that only heavens know who has sat on them before? Exposing that peaches'n'cream complexion to the harmful rays of the sun? NEVER!!! But getting to see Will's naked gleaming chest? Absolutely."
According to Audra, "It's a Pucci-palooza. For someone who makes muumuu's, his bathing suits are tiiiiiiiny."
I'll take the velvet one, thanks.
Heart-shaped glasses! YES!
Sweet Archivia's Look
"I even added a cute little soap pump because I know Emma loves to stay clean!"
That soap pump is precious!
Welcome, Ginny! You've included everything Emma needs for a perfect day at the beach! LOVE the books!!
J says, "I decided that the most important thing about making this collection "Emma-esque" would be skin care. No way would Emma risk a sunburn, so I included sunscreen - but not that gross stuff that makes her skin feel greasy! - and lipstick with SPF, along with a hat and umbrella for the ultimate sun protection."
Excellent point! Emma would never tolerate greasiness!
That bag. Oh my. That. Bag.
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS. Day to evening! Genius!
Courts' Other Look!
HAHAHAHAHAHAH those books!
Fabulous color scheme!
Welcome, Ryan! I adore the nautical theme of this look!
"I really can't imagine Emma voluntarily going to the beach, but maybe she gets some useful counseling and wears this cute suit to the beach! :)"
OMG I NEED TO SEE EMMA IN FLIPPERS NOW. OR FLOATIES. OMG FLOATIES.
Yay, Marcie! Welcome! LOVE the colors and that bathing suit is incredible!
OH YES. How I love Emma in yellows!
Manda! I LOVE that you included a cardigan! Welcome to WWEPW!
That hat is beyond gorgeous.
"I'm not entirely sure that Emma would go to the beach. Too many germs. "
This look is spectacular!
Ooh, I love the coverup!
I could totally see Emma packing like forty swimsuits for a long weekend to the beach!
So pretty and feminine! Love it, Jen!
Sariah May's Look
Sariah May says, "Emma goes to the beach... I can't picture Emma at a beach. Because sand is yucky, and it gets ALL over you. Which I don't think she'd like. But if she went, I'm sure she'd look fabulous."
The white swimsuit reminds me of her eyelet jacket from Hello! Awesome find!
Oooh, so many lovely things! The swimsuit is the perfect color for Emma!
G's Other Look!
She does look amazing in purple, too!
Lady QE's Look
So many pretty choices!
School Counselor! HAHAHAHA! Love it!
Ooooh! I love a good ruched swimsuit!
Woo! Christina is back with a plus-size perspective on Emma's fabulous style! I LOVE the ruffly swimsuit in that gorgeous coral hue!
She says, "Emma braves the beach (she clearly prefers the pool if she must go outside...less dirt. And she can bring her own chlorine). And you just KNOW she puts everything she owns in separate Ziploc bags before setting FOOT in that gross sand!"
Hooray, everyone! Just a little note to say that I love reading the really sweet notes that so many of you include with your sets when you email them to me. I like to post the ones that give WWEPWers a little peek into your creative minds.
And remember, if you don't see your look here, that means I didn't get it! I'm meticulous about saving all the emails I get to a special "Fashion Challenge" folder. If your look didn't appear, please be sure to email me so we can find it and get it posted! xoxo
Of course Fashion Challenges (and much more!) will continue after Glee comes to A SCREECHING HALT WHY GOD WHY tonight. Just think - our hiatus before Season 2 will be much shorter than the wait for the back 9, so that's a good thing! Thanks to everyone for making WWEPW the happiest, kindest place on the internet. It is such a pleasure and privilege to write this website and interact with all of you here every day.
Once more, with feeling...
YAY, GLEE! GLEE KIDS HOORAY!
