Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield. The quasi-heroines of the series Sweet Valley High. Elizabeth was praised as the honor student, the prudish one and - the ultimate 80s fail - the one who wore sunscreen.
Her twin sister Jessica, as evident by her choice of “I make my own rules” denim jacket, snuck out, kissed boys with mustaches and liked to tan.
Francine Pascal enabled created these characters for the Young Adult reader. Opening a new world to young, ambitious woman. Or aspiring reality tv stars. In the same vain, Stefani Greenfield opened up Scoop NYC. Taking all the coveted pieces from the runway and bringing them together in a beautiful and demure manner. Heavenly cashmeres, impeccable tailoring and pricing that makes you think the purchaser could feasibly bring a country out of debt. Very classy. Very Elizabeth.
Then theres Jessica, or in this (getting weaker by the line) analogy: Scoop SALE. A store that is home to exclusively Scoop merchandise on Sale. There are no round tables of cleverly displayed panties. Only bins. Look! A cap-sleeve Missoni knit dress in gorgeous fall colors, with a giant hole in collar.
So? Whadda you gonna do about it? This is Scoop SALE, bitch!
