In the spirit of the holidays and poor taste, this year, The Love List's gift guides are inspired by my favorite dead celebrities. In the honor of one of the funniest ladies to ever grace your television screen, let's kick it off with our favorite Golden Girl to (proverbially) kick the bucket, shall we? And don't worry, for you easily-offended "oh my gracious!" pearl-clutchers, I've included a string in your honor. On dasher, on dancer, on prancer... on vixen! Here, a guide to all things granny-chic. To you, Maude.
(Ed. note: I'm aware Tuesday is normally dudesday, but in honor of a special event this weekend, we're running this week's post for the guys a little later in the week.)
