There was a moment in last night’s Offspring finale where I was ready to share a few unsavoury words with the writers. Surely they weren’t going to leave us hanging.
And then they didn’t, did they?
Everyone’s ok. Alfie. Zara and Jimmy. Cherie and Clegg. Billie and Mick. Geraldine in her love triangle.
And Nina and Patrick. Finally. And pregnant.
Stop thinking you know what I’m thinking. Mostly you’re wrong. I want to be with you no matter what. Dr Patrick
I’m sorry for so many short sentences but it was one of “those” episodes, wasn’t it? Where each scene brought with it a vat of emotion – from angst to tears to smiles.
Speaking of smiles … I want the soundtrack to Nina’s birthday party. Yes, Baby It’s You!
I just hope against all hope that all these tied-up, loose ends doesn’t mean that we won’t see a Season 4. Say it isn’t so, Channel Ten!
Nina fashion-wise? Not much new to report.
We had the same outfit from last week’s episode and a re-hash of the pinky-redy-orangey cardi from episode 6. I don’t know about you but I very much like that she’s a wardrobe “shopper”. It kind of reinforces that she is just a bit like us in that way too.
Seriously, what is to become of Wednesday night viewing and the Thursday downloads?
Should I start speculating on what Nina’s pregnancy wardrobe will look like?
Should we all get excited that with the spring drops of clothes hitting the stores that we’ll actually be able to hunt down more Nina-inspired pieces?
That’s a big YES on that one.
See, part of the frustration of trying to shop Nina’s wardrobe while the series was screening was that they featured summer clothes (albeit a Melbourne summer). Finding similar pieces will be much easier over the next few months.
Keep an eye out for releases from these labels (all have featured in Nina’s wardrobe at some stage):
- D.Co Copenhagen boots
- Nancybird – the designer was even asked to create the quilt cover for Nina and Patrick’s apartment this series.
- Vintage Scanlan and Theodore
- Acne jeans
- Country Road
- True Religion jeans
- Little Joe
- Samantha Wills
- Wheels and Doll Baby
- Violet & I
If any of these fit into your budget, start stalking their websites or stockists’ websites now. Then you’ll be first in the know when something that fits the classic Nina look (maxi or jeans) and you’ll be able to make it your own.
The big thing I want you to take away from this series of posts is that, yes, it’s possible to be inspired by someone else’s style (even if that someone is a fictional character!) but – and it’s a big but – try and take that inspiration and make it work for YOUR style.
… and if in doubt, just add a scarf and boots 😉

What was your favourite Nina outfit this series? Any other TV characters whose style you’d like me to analyse?
Thank YOU my lovely readers – the old ones and the new ones – for making these posts so much fun to write. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have shared my Nina love so publicly! Fingers crossed there’ll be a Season 4.
And if you’re more Rosanna than Nina, head on over to my bloggie friend Wee Birdy. Rebecca’s blogged about how to steal Rosanna’s vintage style.
