I’m just going to get it out of the way and say that I realize I am the only person on the Internet who thought Liz looked cute in her leather biker outfit. In some really deep soul-searching over this issue, I believe my judgment is based on just desperately wanting Liz to be saucy and independent SO much that my fashion vision was momentarily clouded. She had a flash of inspiration, found the nearest S&M shop and quickly transformed herself into…oh, that’s right – a savior for Lucky. Never mind. She’s still just an accessory who does red lipstick really well. [Note from Sage: Dayna was even stalwart enough in her appreciation of Liz's leathers to face down a threat of being fired from the Fashion Police Precinct if she didn't immediately change her mind and admit that Liz looked like something from Spice Girls Meets Village People. I think the words, "saucy and independent, my ass" were tossed around, but I admired her gumption enough to keep her on staff. I do have to, for legal purposes, state that Dayna's opinion of Liz's outfit does not reflect the opinions of Eye on Soaps, the Webmaster or Sage. : Þ]
What a fun week it was
though! How I love soapy Halloween
costumes. People like AJ and
Courtney must budget their costumes months in advance because in my world,
costumes like that would probably set ya back a few hundred bucks. Did Carly look too cool with her black bob and witch hat?
I wish she would really get a haircut that was at least a little stylish
– it worked wonders for her! Wasn’t
Bobbie’s madam (that’s what it was, right?
An odd choice for a former prostitute methinks) costume just ugly?
Wasn’t Monica’s? Skye
was spectacular as Josephine. I was
grateful that we didn’t have to witness Jax pretending he was Napoleon.
Alcazar’s Phantom of the Opera was really good too.
Nikolas and Gia were beautiful, though I must have missed who they
actually were. Edward was a hoot
and Taggert’s gladiator get-up was perfect.
I’m just surprised he didn’t pin his little American flag pin onto
and Brenda’s little wedding was a riot but I was really thrown by her choice
of clothing. I’m guessing that
after their discussion in the limo they stopped at the Q house so she could
change. She should have just stuck
with whatever she was wearing in the car because although I took her wedding
attire as a statement of nonchalance, I couldn’t stop staring at the arm
warmers and her panties (!) hanging out. Her
clothes have been getting a great big HUH?? from me lately. Actually, it’s not the clothes as much as the way they fit
(or not). I like the idea of the
rich woman who wears the sexy, tattered jeans and lots of leather.
It’s a great style for the character, but I’m not convinced it has
ever been called stylish to let your panties peek out (twice it happened!).
Get that girl a belt if her skinny little hips can’t keep those jeans
perched somewhere above her pelvic bones.
about Skye lately? Another day in
Switzerland and that horrific gray outfit and I might have started wondering if
she was secretly drinking again, and in vast quantity.
Was that a polyester turtleneck with the puff sleeves?
Were those ruffles at the bottom of a gray flannel skirt?
My friend Skye would NOT wear that!
She is a monochromatic girl but I don’t think ruffles really work into
her sleek, sophisticated style. Her
courtroom outfit was a beautiful rust color and I loved the suede skirt but nix
that ruffled sweater. Skye is
someone who, to me, has a really definitive style that the wardrobers just
don’t peg sometimes. It’s like
something your sister in law might pick out for you – almost right but not
then there’s Courtney. She
finally appeared in a sweatshirt and jeans, which is what I’d picture a
married girl her age and in her financial position, wearing a bit more
frequently. For having a stalker she sure does go to work looking like
quite the exhibitionist though. We
had a pretty in depth message board conversation about that tight blue shirt
that she wore while slathering egg salad sandwiches in the Kelly’s kitchen.
No denying that Courtney is a busty young gal, but she definitely had the
assistance of a padded bra on that occasion.
The question is, WHY? Oh,
mansoap…that’s right! The girl
keeps pulling more coats out of her closet too.
I still say that a viable future storyline for her is finding herself in
massive credit card trouble. Who
could pay the bills...AJ, Jason or Coleman himself?
my Gia. Where has your style gone?
You once were so hip, now you look like a dip.
And were the green lines on the jacket of that cheap looking pantsuit
representative of something? You
have crossed the green line to bum storylines and even more bum clothing Gia.
Take your shiny green purse and go tell someone who matters what someone
else who matters just said.
maternity wardrobe (besides the hospital gowns) has done nothing remarkable for
pregnant soapwatchers everywhere (like I had really hoped it might).
Okay – cute pantsuits…enough with them already.
Can’t we get her doing anything casual?
Can’t we get her to surf the net and stumble across
? If I were a single and savvy
lawyer, I’d be spending all kinds of money on a cute wardrobe.
Not to mention some highlights (because yes you CAN dye your hair when
you’re pregnant! My OB said so!!)
guys were all pretty average I thought. I’m
not a big fan of colored suits on men so Ned’s olive one made me wrinkle my
nose a little (very Felicia-esque on my part).
Stick to the grays, blues, blacks and tans fellas – thanks.
Your expressions of color come only with shirts and ties.
Jax finally got a haircut but it’s even more wretched than the grown
out bird’s nest that he had last week… Scott is back to his Crayola shirts
and Jason is still wearing t-shirts, even beneath his well-cut suit.
Signing off after a busy week in Port Chuck, I am the Fashion Police…please e-mail me with your comments!!
