TV Style Icon: Whitley Gilbert!


I've always been a HUGE fan of A Different World. Probably the #1 fan. I've been looking at it since in premiered (5th grade?) when I was in grade school & I'm still watching it on some weekday nights, lol. I wish all of the episodes were on dvd so I could just watch it whenever I wanted. A Different World was the reason I chose to go to an HBCU (historically black colleges and universities). ;-) Their experiences & friendships all inspired me to go to an HBCU. It's no secret that my favorite character was Whitley!

Let's get to the fashion now. Another thing that also inspired me was Whitley's sophisticated style! She had the best style on the show. The woman wore business suits to class ya'll. While preparing for this posts, I was scouring the web trying to find photos of her outfits. Almost nada. : \ I don't understand why there aren't more photos online of the outfits she wore. Sometimes I would be looking at the show & would say, "Whitley is doing it in that outfit!" If they were giving out a Best Dressed award, she would've won. :-)

The cast! In the beginning that is...
Whitley & Dwayne. :D I loved their relationship.
Jasmine Guy & Debbie Allen
Jasmine Guy & her father.
lol, I remember this episode!

Since I couldn't find many of her outfits, I went on YouTube. There I found some of my favorite outfits she wore...


Oh and yesterday was my 1 year blogiversary!!! :D Thank you to all who read The Ex-Thrift Store Snob! I have a special surprise for you. ;-)
