Jennings, Elizabeth – A Fashion Blog from The Americans

I did not think the “blogger’s block” was a thing until it hit me, heavily, around six months ago.

All of a sudden, the mundane happenings that had always been my muse were failing to inspire me. I was metaphorically shooting blanks.

Since I’m still out of ideas but the show must go on, this week I’m putting in the driver’s seat my beautiful and talented friend Elizabeth Jennings (Liz).

Liz is the epitome of the woman who has it all: career (she’s part-time travel agent, part-time nurse), family (married to Philip and mother of Paige and Henry) and in the little free time she has, she manages to pursue creative projects like keeping the Soviet Union together or disposing bodies.

Given that she also possesses an exquisit and transformative sense of style, I asked her to put together some outfits to express the eclectic, multi-layered shades of her personality. Take it away Liz!

I stole this look from a university professor I saw on the internet.

Ok, it was actually a girl *playing* a professor in a YouPorn video LOL. I had to pause the video quickly because, as much as I have an eye for detail, she did not wear clothes for very long.

This is my outfit of choice for when I attend Meetup.com gatherings with business people.

What do YOU wear when you want them to “smell money and success” instead of that discounted perfume  you bought from a barefoot woman on the streets of Minsk in 1985?

This is me on the day I told my coiffeur I wanted to look like Baby from Dirty Dancing and it turned out like a Bichon Frise deceased on my skull .

I was like: “Dimitry, FFS, I wanna be supportive of Mother Russia but I’m not one of your eastern pop singers who probably get their perm done in prison”.

To lift myself up I got a McFlurry on my way home :P :P

How do YOU cope with a bad hair day? Tell me in the comments!

This is the outfit I wore in the music video of “Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift.

A few weeks earlier, a guy saw me on the street while I was beating the crap out of two enemies of the cause and he was like “Badass! Wanna take part in a video?”.

At first I was hesitant, since Taylor being a neo-nazi icon kinda conflicts with my political views, but I wanted to get a selfie with Selena Gomez so whatevs.

Girls, this is the perfect look if you ever want to host a feminist book club. The silver hair screams “old soul book worm” but the hipster glasses give it that special je-ne-sais-quoi to make you look approachable, modern and fun!

Tbh Marx’s Capital was supposed to be our first book but was a little bit long and we decided to turn the book club into a movie night. Sharknado GAVE ME LIFE!!1!

I feel SO badass in this pic! I was headed to the christening of my christian-fundamentalist daughter Paige and I wanted a look that said “I’m proud of you” but also “religion is the opiate of the masses” ROTFLLL.

Too bad you can’t see the Marylin Manson 1997 Tour t-shirt I was wearing under that coat.

Bonus Track: this is my friend Paige (ok, daughter, but everyone thinks we’re sisters LOL).

She asked me for advice on Halloween and I wanted her to dress up like the female lead in Battleship Potemkin. The costume was kinda too elaborate to make, though, so in the end she decided to go to the party as Harry Potter.

Hahahahahaahaha she’s my biggest disappointment in life.
