Who’s That Girl? Anna vs. Jamey

Every week Amil Niazi styles the Robber mannequins and then takes you on a sartorial spirit quest, finding the stories buried in the silk and wool. Check out her modern fairytales and then vote for your favourite!

My first real internship was just over 10 years ago when I was part of a “pit” of students doing weird things for a Canadian talk show host like cleaning up her dog’s poop and cutting donuts for the audience in half so that people felt compelled to eat less. I lasted a week. And I had a super bad attitude. Classic me. One of the other interns used to tell me stories about passing out drunk on her front lawn and the other intern lived in the Ivanhoe hotel. Yikes. What a wild ride! But in today’s economy (double yikes) interning is as close to having a real job as some of us might get and as such, there is way more pressure to have an awesome attitude and look work appropriate. This is a tale of two such interns.

Anna

Me personally I think Anna looks very clean. Is that a weird thing to say? Like, she never ever accidentally gets mustard all over her shirt because she has to sneak to the hot dog stand at lunch because her daily food budget is $10 after tax. She only eats very dry kale that isn’t going to splash dressing on her extremely white blouse when she’s trying to read an email from her friend when no one is looking and laughing while she eats cause it’s about her friend’s lame new boyfriend. Nope. Not this gal. She’s “in it 2 win it.” That’s a saying she says to herself in the morning sometimes. Quietly. She relishes internships (another kind of gross thing she says) because they are an excellent learning opportunity. That is a really good attitude that I’m jealous of obviously but tell the truth Anna do you wish sometimes that you could undo the top button on your blouse and then fart during a meeting and pretend it was one of the other interns? (Creatures of Comfort Fanny top, $375 and Pia skirt, $299).

Jamey

Jamey looks fun. Like if she was the other intern in your “pit” you might be like, “Oh hey, Jamey wanna grab lunch?” And not even feel like she’d judge you for getting a hot dog. And probably even gossip with you about how some of the other interns (not naming names but rhymes with Banna) are kind of uptight and are totally brown-nosing so much, gross cut it out right? And Jamey would nod and be like, “Ha ha I know, you’re so funny.” But then on the other hand, Jamey might throw you under the bus and her fun demeanour is just a ruse for a calculating climber who doesn’t even whisper that she’s “in it 2 win it” she screams it at herself every night before bed. And she 100 % farted in that meeting and now you’re starting to think maybe she blamed it on you. It’s a dog eat hot dog world man. (Karen Walker bleeding rose tee, $110, Filippa K drapey pants, $225, and Maude & Colette necklace, $80).

Who’s That Girl? Kim vs. Jenna

Every week Amil Niazi styles the Robber mannequins and then takes you on a sartorial spirit quest, finding the stories buried in the silk and wool. Check out her modern fairytales and then vote for your favourite!

Yay it’s September and the leaves are changing colour and the air is so crisp and beautiful and everything feels like a European maxi pad commercial, am I right?! Psych it’s like 45 degrees out and I have to bring a backpack full of clothes to work just so I can navigate the wildly fluctuating changes in temperature throughout my godawful day. Let’s dress some mannequins!

Kim

photo-43

There are two kinds of “back to school” people. You got Kim here, perfectly pressed and tucked button up that exhibits just enough flare through print mixing so as to appear fun and friendly but the stiffness of the shirt and skirt give away what a total narc she is. You get me? Kim has all the extra pens and one of those foldable keyboards for her tiny computer that she makes a big production of pulling out before each lecture like she invented impeccable note taking or something. Ugh, relax Kim you’re a journalism major, no one at the diner you work at in 4 years will care that your assignments were always in a day early. Like, okay we get it your parents bought you a dark blue Jetta for being valedictorian, big whoop. Nazis made that car. PS: can I borrow a pen, I forgot mine at home? (Steven Alan reverse seam shirt, $189, Wood Wood Gladys skirt, $229).

Jenna

Then you have this guy over here. Yes, she’s always slightly late to class and yes she forgot her pen again and yes these are sweatpants but truth talk, her grades are always great, she’s got jokes for days and if you need to borrow a pen or 10 or feel like making way inappropriate remarks about the T.A.’s mysterious wet spot go sit beside her. Does she have a lot of parking tickets because she forgot to buy a pass and by the time she got to the admin office they were sold out? Sure, welcome to life. Did she already blow a chunk of her student loan on a bunch of weird, miscellaneous party-related expenses? YOLO. JK Livin’ as Jenna always says! If Ferris Bueller were reincarnated as a woman he would be Jenna. Case closed. Class dismissed. (Minimarket Blouse Suffix, $239, BASE Range sweatpants, $130, Cursive Design Squaredancer necklace, $260).
