The first sentence of my Twitter bio reads as follows: I am Canada’s Annie Edison.
My love for NBC‘s Community started during the holiday episode of the first season. A friend was both agog and aghast that I wasn’t already watching and kindly suggested
demanded that I download the newest episode. And so download I did — along with the rest of the episodes I missed. It took me about three days to catch up completely, and then I spent the next three apologizing and thanking to my friend.
Community is kind of a pop culture nerd’s dream.
As I grew more embroiled in the show, my love for it took an oddly exciting, Where’s Waldo-esque turn as I came to the realization that in almost every single episode, Annie Edison was wearing my clothing.
It was as if she was actually in my closet, lifting pieces from my wardrobe. Cardigans, dresses, skirts, tights. You name it, I own it.
I know, you’re skeptical. Well, I will happily walk you down the trail of visual proof…
There was this time that Annie wore this lovely dress:
Right after I wore it.
And then there was that time that Annie Edison wore this red sweater:
About five minutes after I wore the almost exact same one.
And then there was case of the purple cardigan:
that came straight from my wardrobe.
There are exactly three steps to dressing like Annie (and me):
2. Blouses. Bonus points for ties at the neck:
3. Cardigans. To go over all of the blouses and the dresses, of course. Solids, preferably. Must own one in every color:
Remember: short skirts, opaque tights, flats, backpacks, moleskine notebooks are important extras!
