I buy a lot of clothes to wear on camera, and over the years, I’ve begun to pay close attention to what other women are wearing onscreen. For example, I realized that Liz Lemon and I share a great number of items (mostly J. Crew and Theory tops) and I even spotted last Winter’s Peter Pan collar sweater on The Mindy Project.
But there is one shirt that I have seen on TV and in film more than any other: the James Perse contrast panel shirt.
I first noticed it on Skyler White. Then on Debra Morgan. Most recently, Andrea from The Walking Dead has been sporting it in several colors. Actually, all of these characters own the shirt in at least two different hues. Weirdly, the mom from Silver Linings Playbook was also wearing it.
Why is this shirt so great for on-camera?
1. It comes in a lot of different colors. More wardrobe options.
2. It’s a button up, which can be sexified up or more formal.
3. It’s comfortable and has some give to it, so it’s almost always flattering.
Anyhow, I own it in black and white. It rocks. I have no other reason for posting this other than the fact that I’ve noticed it for so long that I had to tell someone else (you, the internet).
As if one book club wasn’t enough, I’ve joined forces with some of my fantastically geeky girlfriends (Felicia Day, Kiala Kazebee, and Bonnie Burton) for a little project called the Vaginal Fantasy Hangout. This new monthly Google+ hangout session will focus on books from the fantasy, science fiction, paranormal romance, and mystery genres. There will also probably be a little sexy-time (as I like to call it) in the stories as well, which we will discuss to great lengths (and to our great amusement).
Bossypants is the kind of book that makes you feel like you could be the author’s best friend. In fact… Tina Fey, will you be my best friend? I really think we have a lot in common. Like this quote, for example:
“My ability to turn good news into anxiety is rivaled only by my ability to turn anxiety into chin acne.”
I also find this to be true! We have the same self-success loathing anxieties! (Is that not a thing? I think I just made that a thing.)
Anyhow, even if we can’t all be best friends with Tina Fey, hearing her talk about her background, rise to glory, and inner-most thoughts on breast feeding is hilarious and enjoyable. Plus, it’s always nice to hear an author read her own book, though there were some audio issues (weird fade-outs, vocal asides that were almost inaudible) but otherwise I give this book two thumbs up!
