The Internet’s Great Idea
I’m a huge fan of the book series, The Babysitters Club, and I know I’m not the only one given the number of requests I’ve gotten over the years to see my BSC collection, recreate the book covers, and, finally, make an entire lookbook video with outfits inspired by each of the characters!
The last one has been on my to-do list since it was first suggested many years ago. It’s a great idea, right? Dress up as each of the main characters (sans Abby, sorry!) and interpret their style through my own creative lens.
It’s taken a while to get here but I knew with the recent premiere of season two of The Babysitters Club series on Netflix, now was the time to take action.
I am so thrilled that the series is getting a new life on the streaming service and that a whole new generation is being introduced to the characters. It’s the (healthy) girl boss energy we need right now!
What also makes this video so fitting for me is how much I love ’80s pop culture. It was fun shuffling through my thrifted wardrobe and pulling out some of my raddest vintage so each character was just right.
Without further ado, let’s check out the looks!
The Babysitters Club Lookbook
My lookbook is in two parts! Part one is a video for those who prefer movement and the coolest song ever written playing in the background.
Part two is for those who like pictures of each of the looks. (The pictures also make it easier to save a look to recreate later, rather than trying to screenshot a moving video!)
Say Hello To The Babysitters Club
My older sister unofficially introduced me to the BSC series when I was a kid and, when I finished my video and sent her a rough draft, she gave me the biggest compliment – without reading the name titles, she could immediately tell who each character was. Can you?
In order, we have Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill, Dawn Schafer, Mallory Pike, and Jessi Ramsey.
Which character do you relate to most? I’m definitely a Claudia! I also want to wear that outfit again for another day. haha
Thank you so much for suggesting this video idea and for being patient with me in putting it all together. I’d say it was well worth the wait. I can pizza toast to that!
