Style Inspiration: Leslie Knope’s Anchor Obsession

Yesterday I spent a few hours parked on my couch drinking wine and binge-watching “Parks & Rec.” It was glorious. I couldn’t help but notice, over the course of five or six episodes, that Leslie Knope displays a particular fondness for anchor prints, wearing both this Equipment blouse (which is sold out, sadly) and this Madewell anchor sweater (currently sold out on the Madewell site, but available on Shopbop). Since I’m always eager to copy anything and everything Leslie does, I thought I’d round up a few other anchor-themed pieces for anyone who wants to bring a little nautical Knope swagger into their wardrobe. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

"It is literally naked women devouring t-bone steaks."

A few “Parks & Recreation” episodes back, Leslie helped save the local (Jason Schwartz-run) art house video store, but it had unintended consequences. To make money, the store was transformed into a porn warehouse, and a Pawnee-themed porn––including Leslie and Ron-a-likes––was made. It turns out, somebody in the real porn universe must have been watching, because the folks at Wood Rocket TV created “Porks  & Recreation,” which includes actually pretty funny parodies of all your favorite “Parks & Rec” characters. Dick Chibbles (try and say that without giggling) as Ron Swanson is actually pretty good, while Aiden Starr plays Leslie Knope. My only qualm is that the idea of Ron and Leslie banging feels way too incest-y. Ron’s like a dad to Leslie! Otherwise, A+ adaptation. [YouTube]

Leslie Knope’s Wedding Dress Was Freakin’ Perfect

Did you guys catch “Parks and Recreation” last night? SPOILER ALERT (that was already ruined by the headline, sorry): Leslie and Ben got married! In true Leslie fashion, the wedding came together at the last minute in a whirlwind of excitement and expertly delegated tasks. Leslie asked her BFF Ann to make her a dress based on the “sensuality of Eleanor Roosevelt combined with the animal magnetism of Leslie Stahl.” An hour later, Ann delivered this fabulous lace and newspaper creation, featuring articles and memos from Leslie’s illustrious career. God, could this show get any cuter? Check out another pic after the jump! [Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Guys, I know I push “Parks and Rec” on you all the time, but it’s really because I feel like it’s one of the few awesomely quirky weirdo shows out there. Plus, Ron Swanson’s mustache! Plus, Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope is actually rather headstrong and confident and a good role model. So many popular female characters are deeply and annoyingly insecure or fall into familiar tropes (the bitch, the harpy, the manic pixie), but Leslie is just Leslie: kind of nerdy, but super smart and accomplished and winsome. And, oh, here’ s a funny “Downton Abbey”/”Parks and Rec” parody, involving quotes from “P&R” paired with Downton’s dramatic images. [Downton Pawnee]

"He's not a pony, he's a mini-horse."

We’re still not quite over the death of Pawnee, Indiana’s littlest hero, Li’l Sebastian, the mini-horse and town mascot. Thankfully, someone’s trying to get to the bottom of his death, in this mega-mashup parody “Parks and Recreation: The Movie: The Murder: The Li’l Sebastian.” We’re thinking Leslie Knope, in the barnyard, with a candlestick.

Nick Offerman Reminds Men That “It Gets Fuller”

Movember Time!

I could look at the mustachioed visage of Nick Offerman — Ron Swanson of “Parks and Recreation”– for days. His ‘stache is perfectly groomed and majestic, reminiscent of the glory of a flock of birds cresting over the horizon or a beautiful sunrise on a pristine white beach. Here, he reassures men participating in Movember — the mustache-growing men’s health awareness movement — that their puny, sad sack teenage dirt ‘staches will grow thicker and fuller. Just ask his video co-stars, “The Office”‘s Brian Baumgartner, Oscar Nuñez and Jake Lacy. You just have to give it time, says Nick, who reminds us that growing a mustache isn’t easy, but “nothing incredibly awesome is.” [Movember]

Leslie Knope Finally Meets Her Celeb Crush, Joe Biden

“It was a real honor that in my sitcom debut I got to meet someone like Leslie Knope, who believes so deeply in public service. She’s an example for men and women across the country that there’s no higher calling than helping other people. On a personal note, I’ll never figure out how Leslie Knope got my home phone number, but that really just shows how committed she is.”

Vice President Joe Biden expresses his delight about making a cameo on “Parks and Recreation” alongside Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope, who has an infamous crush on him. As Leslie explained last season, “Joe Biden is on my celebrity sex list–well, he is my celebrity sex list.” Excited to see the pair’s sexual chemistry in action? Biden’s episode airs November 15th. [Photo: Entertainment Weekly; Quote: NYT]

Like, we’ll be doing a scene and we’ll look down and Adam won’t have any pants on, and we’ll be like, ‘Adam! We’re in Senator Boxer’s office! Put your pants back on!’ And he’s like, ‘Oh.’”

It’s no secret that Leslie Knope is one of our favorite characters on TV. She’s smart, funny, ambitious, loyal, and endlessly committed to her town, her friends, and her job. Her wardrobe of grey suits, tie-front blouses, simple jewelry, and sensible shoes isn’t exactly high fashion, but it’s actually a pretty cute style equation for a business casual work environment.
