Style Icon: Rory Gilmore


 Oh Rory, you and your mom are so full of wisdom. And style. So much style. (Have you seen the Gilmore Girls? Are you familiar with this television program? If not, go watch it now. Immediately! What are you still doing here? Go watch the Gilmore Girls!)


So yes. Rory Gilmore. She is sweet and big-eyed and preppy, and that's all well and good, but what makes me love her is she always has a book. Books: The best accessories.


Although terribly handsome men are also excellent accessories. They go surprisingly well with plaid skirts, saddle shoes and headbands.


The most terribly handsome of all the terribly handsome men is Jess, the cranky super-smart, antihero intellectual. He deserves his own style icon post someday! (And for that matter so does Miss Patti and Luke and Kirk and the list of great, weird characters goes on...)


Once she went to college, Rory ditched the school-girl look for more sophisticated fare. She's still very prim, but she's also classic and fabulous How can you not be when you're the daughter of Lorelai Gilmore?

OMG this takes me back to undergrad. I was obsessed with GG! And I would snatch Rory's closet in an instant!

This is such a sweet post - my daughter and I used to love watching the Gilmore Girls.

Mother and daughter are both quite stylish.

Thank you for the memories : )

I love The Gilmore Girls - it's such a guilty pleasure! I only wish I could follow their diet (ie. junk food every day) and look that good :)
