You know that Luna Park roller coaster that featured in an Offspring episode a few weeks back? Geez. Louise.
They really could have included it in every episode since. And not just in relation to Nina and Patrick’s emotional ride (which BTW might be back on next week if the preview of them pashing serves us correctly … it had better not be a damn dream sequence).
No, the emotional ride has been all ours.
Take last night’s episode … we had the HILARIOUS scene whereby Nina enters her mother’s house via the bathroom, declaring that she’s “just mixing it up a bit … sometimes I like to come in the front door, sometimes through the window. I like coming in that way”. Classic Nina.
We had her getting her scarves and necklaces all tangled with the strap of her shoulder bag when arriving for her non-date with Adam.
We had Patrick in tears looking at the album his former wife and mother of his dead baby had put together.
We had the emergency caesar birth scene where we held our collective breath waiting for Jimmy and Zara’s very premmy baby to take his first breath (I suggest it’s no coincidence that a tissue advertisement popped up on screen just after this).
We had Billie back. Thank goodness. We needed her light relief … which she willingly provided by whacking someone with her bag to snare a waiting cab to the hospital.
It was all a bit too much, really.
But I’ll stop going on now. Just needed to de-brief for myself, really. I had banished Mr Styling You to the other room to watch the State of Origin so was left with my Twitter friends to discuss these important developments.
And the fashion.
My favourite outfit was the first one (pictured in this scene above) – it’s classic Nina. I really loved the emerald green and the coloured scarf and belt. The below shopping suggestions are not the actual pieces featured on the show … merely a bit of inspiration for recreating Nina’s style with garments actually available right now.
1. Witchery tank $29.95 | 2. Vigorella cardi @ Birdsnest $59.95 | 3. Witchery earrings $14.95 | 4. Diva necklace $14.99 | 5. Katherine belt @ The Iconic $59.95 | 6. Vince Camuto boots @ The Iconic $299.95| 7. D-Lux scarf @ Style Tread $110 | 8. Jeanswest jeans $69.99
Is this a Nina Proudman look that you could adapt for yourself?
PS. If you have been dressing Nina style, would you like to share a photo of your outfit with us? If I get enough of a response I’ll create a gallery of photos like the one I did here. Seeing lots of different shapes and sizes adapting a look for themselves really does help to inspire others. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
