started innocently enough. I’m
all about traditions and this year would be no different even if I did have to
threaten ruination of upcoming football games if they wouldn’t all sit down to
watch it…the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Oh yes, I am a parade addict. I
was gleeful as each float approached, pointing excitedly as the giant balloons
of Blue and Little Bill floated down the street.
And then it happened. One of
the floats carrying some nameless boy band rolled by. There were dancers…wearing jeans…with their underwear
peering out from above the waistbands! NOOOOOO!!!
This shall not become fashionable. I
won’t stand by and let it happen. As
the day progressed, I felt like Courtney because the image just kept revisiting
my brain. I brought the glorious
sweet potato casserole from the oven and it was there, I teased my father-in-law
with the prospect of sauerkraut on his plate and it was there – it would not
go away! Unshakeable…(shivers)
Thanksgiving episode was…different…and well; we did get a glimpse of what
could have happened to Jason if he had remained a Quartermaine.
The Fashion Police are actually pretty darn grateful to AJ for altering
his brother’s personality so effectively.
We just wouldn’t know what to do with Steve Burton in sweater vests and
a geeky side part… To be honest,
the thought that occurred to me most often throughout that episode was that
Courtney was wearing another damn new coat and I just can’t get past the fact
that this girl blows all kinds of money on wardrobe and apartment décor.
She has perfectly coordinated sofa pillows (I covet those pillows, I do)
but not enough kitchenware to whip up a darn potpie?
explanation of the delay on this column, I just haven’t been all that tuned in
to GH lately. I either watch it at
3 in the afternoon while my unruly gaggle of offspring is running rampant or at
10pm on SoapNet. This 10pm viewing
has been greatly affected by gift-wrapping and exhaustion from other Christmas
related duties so my fashion notes aren’t what they could be… I actually
have a line here that says “Ric in white shirt…sigh”.
Yeah, Dayna – that’s very helpful when it comes to writing a
column. But with that being said, I
do pretty much sigh whenever that man comes into view. I am such a sucker for a sharp dressed man (insert ZZ Top
background music here) and how sweet it is when said SDM is actually
half-dressed in his crisp white dress shirt.
When he opened that door to Liz and was all unbuttoned, I’m just not
sure how my girl kept her eyes in her head.
was very accommodating of the PCPD to get those low-rise prison issue Dickie
pants for Brenda. Heaven knows we
don’t want her to suffer with anything so unstylish as pants that come up to
her belly button. Then, did you see
where the underpants were actually sticking out of the Dickies and her work
shirt was tucked into them?? My
head almost exploded.
has been so gorgeous lately! Leather
skirts that come past the knee, turtlenecks abounding… who got hit on the head
and figured out how to dress skinny women who are supposed to have a few dollars
rolling around in the bottom of their purse?
Maybe Carly’s wardrober got sick and the one who dresses Skye stepped
in. Next week we’ll be back to
red tank tops and black leather hot pants.
Taggert and his leather
gun-holster. What more is there to
say? I wish this man would get a
story. Mac seems to be onscreen a
lot more lately and I am grateful. Even though I think he is among the very few
men on the planet who can pull off the sweater vest, I prefer that they keep his
image a little less nerdy.
know Sage was excited to see all kinds of Coleman on Monday.
He looks to have much less product in his hair (Coleman, not Sage ;)
which is a good thing for him. Long
hair should invite the hands to run through it and since the rest of Coleman is
oh so inviting, it stands to reason that the hair now matches.
I haven’t even seen the show yet, but just by looking that the screen
caps, I know that I want the loveliest girl in PC (I said loveliest, not most
beautiful!! Skye, people…Skye!!)
to fall truly, madly and deeply in love with Coleman so they can be beautifully
bad (and gorgeous!) together.
my final thought is NuGia. Again, I
missed Monday’s show so I haven’t seen the woman act.
Note that I said woman. I
may not have called Marisa Ramirez a woman for another 10 years, but this chick
looks like she fits the bill. From
all reputable accounts, she’s a good actress but it might take me a while to
see her as Gia. A walk down memory
lane has me recalling Gia as full of attitude, pompous and a little vulnerable
when you scraped it all away. NuGia
looks like she just put the kids on the school bus and is headed into the office
to clear up a few details before heading into court for the afternoon.
Guess we’re going to see a bit of a turnaround for the character…
That’s all for now – I’ll have more before the holidays but here’s hoping that everyone is enjoying the season of sales and bargains and not getting too stressed about gaining a few pounds. If you’re like me, you can’t resist the cookies or the stretchy velour jogging suits so it all works out just fine ;)
