How's it going, Susie? Nice camel toe.

Amy Sedaris is about as unconventional as they come. From her attitude to her style, Amy is in a class of her own. If you haven’t heard of her, you’re missing out. She’s probably best known as Jerri Blank on Strangers with Candy (if you've seen the seen the movie/tv show, I'm guessing you appreciate the title of this post) and as author David Sedaris’s sister, but she’s making a name for herself in the DIY and fashion world. Her two books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and ­­Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People, have become New York Times best sellers and she has had small yet memorable parts in numerous TV shows and movies.

At 50, this Raleigh, NC native is still making the rounds on nighttime talk shows. Her latest appearance Late Night with Jimmy Fallon was so insanely hilarious I think I’ve watched it 30 times. When I’m having a blah kind of day, I watch her YouTube clips and I feel reenergized and inspired (watch some of the clips with her and Martha Stewart. DIE). Her carefree attitude helps me remember that whatever is going on isn’t such a big deal. Have a cupcake and get on with your life! 



Her Lucille Ball-esque dresses and aprons add to her beyond quirky personality. Her dressmaker, Mary Adams, apparently only has 9 fingers (a fact that Amy readily shared during a visit to Letterman). From what I’ve heard, many of Amy’s dresses and aprons have been custom made either by Mary or by Adam Selman. While I admit they would look silly on most people, seeing her in anything else is just, well, weird. Her unique style definitely matches her one of a kind personality.

I absolutely ADORE Amy Sedaris. Head-to-toe, inside-and-out, Amy Sedaris is positively fabulous. Oh, and did I mention that she sells homemade cheese balls and cupcakes at a deli in NYC? L.O.V.E.
