I'm Your Biggest Fan!

Shocker! Two posts in one day! Actually, you can expect to see more posts from now on. So, be sure to scroll down so you don't miss anything!I am an avid tennis fan - love playing and love watching. Since it's the summer, I have a lot of tennis to watch, and I have noticed an interesting phenomenon: the tennis girlfriend. The tennis girlfriend is a unique breed of female, most always blonde and with very good bone structure. She sits in the exclusive player's box, cheering on her man, and looking every inch the privileged, label-loving beauty. The ultimate tennis girlfriend is Mirka Vavrinec, right hand woman to tennis god Roger Federer. Seriously, she has the best job in the world: follow Roger around the world and watch his genius on court. How lucky!
Of course, the most important aspect of the tennis girlfriend is her clothing. In fact, both Mirka and Roger are known for their glamorous style and love of all things fashion. They were actually invited by Anna Wintour to accompany her on front row at an Oscar de la Renta show (seen above). So how does one dress like a tennis girlfriend? Read below to find out.
Any tennis girlfriend worth her weight in diamonds knows that the most important part of the outfit is anything from the waist up, because as you sit in the stands, only your torso is visible to the jealous lookers-on and sports network cameras. Pick sport-inspired pieces, those with a casual flair, but make sure everything is designer. If it doesn't have an important name on the label, it should not be touching your body. Mirka happens to love hoodies, and who does an overpriced hoodie better than Juicy Couture? Wear these tops with white Seven jeans and a fantastic pair of shoes. Even though no one will see the shoes, a gorgeous pair of shoes will set you apart even more from the average sneaker wearing spectators who had to pay for their tickets.
Accessories: just as vital to the ensemble as a great top. Make sure that every piece is big, flashy, and with a recognizable logo. Huge sunglasses are a must, and the darker the better. These two are by Mirka's favorites, Roberto Cavalli and Juicy. Big designer bags are required as well, and place them on your lap for all to see. The LV Multicolore is a favorite of Mirka's, and she had it with her at one of Roger's matches just recently. Instantly recognizable, and, for some, highly covetable. Let's not forget the jewels. What's the point of being a tennis girlfriend if your famous and loaded tennis player boyfriend doesn't buy you enormous diamonds? The bigger, the better. Rings are permitted as long as you clap a lot.
Finally, for the red carpet appearances, photo ops, and, of course, sitting front row with Anna Wintour, you'll need some knockout dresses. This Temperley minidress would be great for watching your guy play the final of Wimbledon. For dressier events, however, opt for Cavalli, naturally. Jimmy Choos are the perfect finishing touch.

Don't forget that the best tennis girlfriends have the attitude to match.

Honestly, I'd rather hear about the tennis girls than the tennis girlfriends. There are some stylish female athletes out there and I'd love to see you focus on them instead of girls who are only famous because they're dating someone famous. That's like a step down from Paris Hilton, at least she's famous for something she did herself, even if it was only a sex tape. I guess tennis girlfriends are like outdoors versions of socialites who also don't do anything. Sorry, pet peeve of mine. Cute clothes but your premise just bugs me a little bit.

I agree that there are a lot of stylish, talented female tennis players and I both admire and respect them. But this post was meant to be funny. Sorry if that "bugs" you. You know what bugs me? People who air their "pet peeves" on fashion blogs.

Ok I didn't get that it was supposed to be funny. Never mind. I just liked this blog because it wasn't all celebrity-oriented so you had me worried there for a minute. I am a big fan of your blog and am excited to see you posting more often!

Nope, I was just confused, apparently. Still definitely a fan!
