A Tribute to our ‘Friends’….Monica, Rachel and Phoebe!

February 5, 2016

J: So sis since I am always quoting ‘Friends’, my all time favorite show and life bible, should we take (our friend) Paula’s request and dedicate a whole post to our gals Phoebe, Monica and Rachel??

A: Totally! I’ll be there for you…(sing it with me now)!  The crazy thing is so much of what’s trending right now is “normcore” fashion from the Nineties…think bib overalls, flannels, denim on denim.

J: Ummmm…yea….juxtapose…”normcore”….stop it. Just stop it. I have a hard enough time wearing in style things, now I have to know the vocab too? What is “norm core”? My brain is juxta-ploding right now. How do you even know that word? It’s weird.

A: YOU STOP! I can’t laugh this hard, chew gum and type…okay lady? Normcore basically refers to our Your Closet Wants page…basic utilitarian (girl next door) pieces that can be dressed up or down.

J: AHHHH, that’s why Your Closet Wants them:-). Not just a hat rack my friend. https://youtu.be/XH5FHt05-Fs

A: Okay Joey, I mean Jennifer, back to business. I’m going to style us each in a look signature of our favorite leading ladies! Remember it’s about inspiration not literally going to the salon and asking for Rachel’s famous haircut. BE CONFIDENT, BE INSPIRED, but BE YOU!

A: Rachel loves crop tops, knee high boots, a great skirt and denim shirts!

Jennifer is channeling Rachel in a denim top (which is actually a jumper!) and her favorite (and super versatile) faux leather skirt from bebe.

I’m representing my favorite ‘Friend’ in an Express crop top layered over an Old Navy tank…added the black shorts and staple knee high boots for a look that’s Rachel approved.

A: Phoebe loves a great maxi dress, cardigans and statement jewelry (especially chokers and large pendants).

Jennifer is wearing a side pony in leau of Phoebe's pigtails and is bringing Phoebe's gray sweater and baggy denim vest current by sporting a gray sweatshirt dress with a more streamlined denim jacket!

I swapped out her maroon cardigan for a leather moto jacket in the same hue, added a leather choker in her honor and pumped up her construction boots by wearing mine with a heel.

A: Monica changes her look the most but was definitely known to stun in a great pair of jeans and a basic top!  (Normcore :-))

 

I'm so comfy in a similar flannel and jeans but opted to swap the sneakers for my favorite OTK boots!

Jennifer is a mirror image of Monica in this monochromatic look! The update comes with a looser, uneven hem tank (see our Your Closet Wants page) and a statement bracelet!

    Well now I know how to wear all those old crop tops I thought I would never wear again – stick a tank on under them! Love the look. Glad to see comfy flannel looking so great with some tall boots; however, the thing that caught my eye was those sweet brown leather bracelets. Spill, Amy! Where can I get me some of those??

  2. mypurpleblazer says:

    Aren’t they great! They’re handmade by Sara Ross. She has beautiful jewelry and it’s very affordable (bracelets were $20 each). If you go to our Your Closet Wants page, you’ll find the bracelets and her link! ?

  3. Beth says:

    Well done, my friends!

  4. Paula Lucore says:
