I Want This Wardrobe: The O.C., Season 1

We thought with Summer right around the corner it would be fun to put together a wardrobe tribute for a guilty pleasure TV show that took place in a sublimely sunny part of the world: The O.C.. I for one was smitten by all the teen angst, with money, drama and the seemingly beautiful people. I wanted to hate Marissa for her unreal good looks and mood swings and Ryan for his violent temper and smoldering brow - but I just couldn't. And the parents were so cool, and beautiful too, albeit they had their own intriguing skeletons in their walk-in closets.

The O.C. set trends. Marissa inspired teenage, and er, twenty-somethings, to want to carry a Chanel handbag as their school book bag. Summer had a cute-as-a-button boho-California style that spawned my Marc by Marc Jacobs obsession and taught us all how to layer wisely. Kirsten and Julie had MILF written all over them. And, we all came to appreciate the cool dork in the Penguin polos: Seth. Without further is Season One. Stay tuned tomorrow for Season Two!

Gosh you can tell I'm obsessed with this show! The one of Marissa in the pearls isn't from season 1, it's from season 2. But all your other picks are great!
