From the Archives: The Wakefield Twins and The Tanners

Happy Friday, everyone!  I hope you've all got fun plans for an awesome New Year's Eve.  I've caught the sickness that has been tearing through my office lately and feel awful right now.  Hopefully I can kick these germs before Saturday night, when N and I are set to attend a wedding for some dear friends. 

Today's post is another collection of old, but good, outfits I made when I was playing around in Polyvore to envision what my favorite 90s characters would be wearing now (if they were real).  Here are my predictions for Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield and for DJ, Stephanie, and Michelle Tanner (before I knew how to embed Polyvore code in a blog post).

See you next year!!

Elizabeth Wakefield
Elizabeth was getting a journalism degree last time I read about her, and I think she would have stuck with that career path.  Now she's living in Silver Lake and writing for the LA Times as well as the occasional piece for Vanity Fair and the Huffington Post.  She isn't married, but lives with her boyfriend who published a well-known novel a couple of years ago.  She's still not a very adventurous dresser and buys for comfort before style, but Jessica would never let her walking around looking sloppy.

Jessica Wakefield
Jessica also lives in LA, and she's currently dating an actor starring in a vampire show on the CW.  They just moved into a house in West Hollywood and she's growing accustomed to photographers taking their picture at Starbucks (she loves it, actually).  Jessica's own aspirations of fame never panned out, but she's now one of the most successful modeling agents outside of New York.  Her style is sexy and glamorous - still the opposite of her sister.

DJ Tanner
DJ went to college in Boston (class of 1999 since she was going to prom in 1995) in an attempt to take a break from her giant extended family.  After graduation she got a job as a TV producer in New York, but 9/11 made her realize she missed being around everyone and she moved back to San Francisco.  She and Steve didn't stay together through college and she ended up reuniting with Vipor, her old musician boyfriend who played at the Smash Club.  They live together, much to Danny's dismay, in a small apartment in The Mission and she likes wearing very casual, but still conservative outfits to her job as a producer for Good Morning San Francisco (Danny and Becky's show was canceled after 15 years)

Stephanie Tanner
Stephanie is 27 now, working a collection of jobs in Los Angeles along with the occasional commercial and small guest role on crime shows like CSI.   She dropped out of college in 2002 and decided to pursue acting instead of degree.  So far it's not going well, but not bad enough for her to move back to San Francisco and get a day job.  Her style is very hippie/beachy/chic and features lots of clothes DJ didn't want anymore. 

Michelle Tanner
Michelle is 23 now and just graduated from Stanford (the school that rejected DJ) with a degree in English.  She tries to get freelance writing work and is working on a novel about a huge family without a mother, but currently works for a high end wedding planner in San Francisco.  She's really stylish, thanks to her job and Aunt Becky, and spends all her money on expensive clothes by The Row.
